Short Soup by Coleen Kwan is the tale of two childhood friends who reconnect after many years and continents apart. I chose this book because the premise of a divorced woman returning home and the friends-to-lovers storyline. I also chose Short Soup because of the ethnic background and the chance to gain some insight into the Asian culture.
Toni Lau and Dion Chan’s parents were business partners in an Asian restaurant located in Piper Bay, Australia. Toni had left Piper Bay to pursue a career as a CPA in London. Over the course of five years, she was married and divorced and decided to move back home to reevaluate her life. Dion has also recently moved back home after living in Hong Kong so he could manage their parent’s restaurant.
Toni and Dion cross paths and their chemistry is off the charts. Dion cannot believe that he is still in love with Toni after all of these years. He has sworn off distractions as he is focused on the restaurant. Toni has absolutely no idea that Dion has been in love with her since before they left for college, but she now finds him attractive in a romantic way and this confuses her.
There were many aspects of Short Soup that I really enjoyed. I can truly appreciate being able to gain some insight into Chinese familial relationships and to see the differences between the families. I also was a fan of the friends-to-lovers storyline as it was believable that the characters were confused about their feelings. Short Soup by Coleen Kwan is a short and very enjoyable read!
