The Good, the Bad, and the Aunties by Jesse Sutanto

The laugh-out-loud new novel from the bestselling author of Dial A For Aunties, winner of the Comedy Women In Print Prize 2021

Where there are aunties, there’s trouble . . .

After an ultra-romantic honeymoon across Europe, Meddy Chan and her husband Nathan have landed in Jakarta to spend Chinese New Year with her extended family. And a former beau of Second Aunt’s shows up bearing extravagant gifts—he’s determined to rekindle the romance!

His grand gesture goes awry when a particular gift intended for a business rival is included by accident. When the Aunties return it (after all, anyone would forgive an honest mistake, right?), Meddy and the Aunties find themselves as helpless pawns in a decades-long war between Jakarta’s most powerful business factions.

It’s up to Meddy to come up with a plan to save them all. Determined to rescue her loved ones, Meddy embarks on an impossible mission—but with the Aunties by her side, nothing is truly impossible…
