I blazed through the rest of the book on a Saturday afternoon while the kiddo was napping. I couldn’t put it down. It’s the romcom that I was waiting for – a mash-up of Bridget Jones’s Diary and Crazy Rich Asians. It even had comics woven into the storyline!
My only wish was that there would’ve been just a little bit more shown of the relationship between Andrea and her love interest. It wasn’t obvious but, at the same time, it was obvious. I wanted more moments.
Anyhow, it was just nice to “see” in my head a non-White couple falling in love. More please!
At thirty-three, Andrea Tang is living the dream: she has a successful career as a lawyer, a posh condo, and a clutch of fun-loving friends who are always in the know about Singapore's hottest clubs and restaurants. All she has to do is make partner at her law firm and she will have achieved everything she's worked for. And if she's about to become the lone unmarried member of her generation in the Tang clan--a disappointment her meddling Chinese-Malaysian family won't let her forget--well, who needs a husband, anyway?
