More About the Author

Camy writes Christian romantic suspense as Camy Tang and Regency romance under her pen name, Camille Elliot. She grew up in Hawaii but now lives in northern California with her engineer husband and rambunctious dog. She graduated from Stanford University in psychology with a focus on biology, but for nine years she worked as a biologist researcher. Then God guided her path in a completely different direction and now she's writing full time, using her original psychology degree as she creates the characters in her novels. In her free time, she's a staff worker for her church youth group and leads one of her church's Sunday worship teams. She also loves to knit, spin wool into yarn, and is training to (very slowly) run a marathon.

Her whole life, Jennifer has done what her family expected of her. When she graduates from college, the family expects her to work at her aunt's restaurant. Instead, Jennifer wants to start her own catering company. Her efforts to start a business bring her across the path of Edward, a handsome man whose family owns a winery. Will Jennifer chase her dreams even if it means disappointing her family?

The final book of the Sushi Series, Tang wraps up this series with a short novella. While the plot is not as developed as the other books, Jennifer's story is a nice closure to the series. Fans of the series will ignore the rushed storyline to find out what happens to the four cousins.

I applaud Tang for self-publishing this story so that loyal readers could find out what happened with Jennifer. The story is a nice, light end-of-summer read.

... for Camy Tang's Sushi Series. Yes, it's short, but it does what the author intended - it wraps up the series and gives Jenn her own story, with an interesting surprise. Thanks Camy, for giving your fans one more "loud Asian chick-lit" story.

Camy Tang has written another winner for her Sushi Series. In this final novella, Jenn Lim has just finished up her degree in Culinary Arts and wants to try a hand in her own business. Her family(Aunty Aikiko) has other plans for Jennifer. She wants Jennifer to the family restaurant, and all in the midst of Trish having a wedding.

This story was not only a conclusion but you catch some subplots of other women from the Sushi Series, wrapping up with new beginnings. Jenn just happened to be the subserviant one, the quiet one, and somehow, once she met Edward, it changed everything. She learned that its okay be Christlike and disagreeable to those who want to control you, she also learned that a crazy mishap can turn into yummy Malaysian Basil sauce.

For this book to be a novella, Camy Tang has mastered telling a great story in a short book. She maintained pacing, plot, and character while making it all worthwhile. I also highly recommend her other books in the Steeple Hill Suspense category.

I knew that Camy Tang wrote Christian novels about Asian-American families living in northern California. I even bought two of her print books but I couldn't read them because the type was too small for me to read. So when "Weddings and Wasabi" came out for the Kindle, I just had to buy it.

A Story About Many Things!

What a surprise! The story is about many things. In a way, it is a coming of age story about the heroine, Jenn, who at 30-something, comes into her own as an independent family member and self-actualizing individual. It's an intriguing story of an extended Asian American family. Jenn has over fifty cousins living close by that she can call by name. It's a culinary story with lots of cooking. Jenn has just earned her cullinary degree. It's a wacky story with motorcycles and a central character who is a goat named Pookie. (Seriously).

Inspiring, Intriguing, Good Times & Sad

It is also an inspiring and intriguing story that weavs prayer and Christian values into complex family relationships where Buddhism is still practiced. It's also a sad story because life can be sad at the same time the good times are happening.

It's One Big Novella!

"Weddings and Wasabi" may be a novella but more happens in the story than you'd expect to find in a 300 page novel. (In fact, the author has indicated that"Weddings and Wasabi" would have been a novel if she had had the time to write it. She's now writing mysteries under contract for Love Inspired but still wanted to finish out this series for her Sushi fans.)

What Kind of Book Is This?

I did ask the author, who was doing a blog appearance at the time, what kind of book "Weddings and Wasabi" really was. She called it a "humorous contemporary romance".

I am a fan of Ms. Tang because of the other books in this series. However, this one fell a little short, literally. It read like a short story and sometimes lacked supporting details, especially regarding the lead heart throb, Edward. For example, the reader is told several times that Edward considers himself boring, yet we are never really given evidence to support his opinion. The book description asks whether Jennifer will still be attracted to Edward when she finds out that he isn't really the daring bad boy that he appears to be when they first meet. Unfortunately, the question is never really answered.

The aunties and cousins are as entertaining as ever. Mimi seems to have grown from what I remember in previous stories. Perhaps she will get her own story in the future. Grandma's quiet conversion as well as her confidence in Jenn were my favorite parts of the story.

Overall, Weddings and Wasabi was a quick and fun read. I just wish there was more to the story.

This book was one I had been wanting for a while. I finally found it here and it was a good price too! I already had the other three books written by Camy Tang. I will say that it was shorter than I would have liked but, worth the money.
