    Food trucks and murder

    Lana Lee and Peter Huang are representing the Ho-Lee Noodle Shop at the Cleveland Night Market for the Summer season and the first night goes out with a bang, literally! When a neighboring food truck explodes at the end of the evening, Lana and Peter escape with minor injuries, while the truck owner is killed and Peter’s mother and the truck owner’s wife suffer some serious burns. When the wife of the truck owner is named as the primary suspect, Lana’s mother is upset and worried about her old friend. Thus begin’s Lana’s investigation into the explosion. As Lana digs around, she finds that some friendships her Mother and some of the other women have changed over the years. But what caused the rift in old friendships and why would a woman kill her own husband? From her initial findings, Lana can’t be certain, but she seems to be going in a circle where she can see both side of the coin for each of her own suspects having set the explosion to kill the man and why they didn’t do it. Lana better work quickly because the killer set off another smaller explosion to warn her and next time it may not be just a warning. I absolutely adore this series. I knew the moment I read the first book and saw the humor in the Ho-Lee name. The whodunit is well crafted and if you follow the clues throughout the story, you will guess who the killer is and have the reasons you suspected confirmed towards the end. Every time I read a book from this series I need some noodles and dumplings because you are completely drawn in and immersed in the setting and characters. Another wonderful serving in this series!

    Wonton Food Truck goes Boom!

    Wonton Terror by Vivien Chien is the fourth novel in A Noodle Shop Mystery series. Each book in this series can be read on its own. I like this unique cozy mystery series that has readers enjoying Asian food and culture in Ohio. Lana Lee is rocking purple hair while busy managing the family restaurant, working at the Asian Night Market, attending mandatory family dinners and spending time with her boyfriend. With her Aunt Grace in town, her mother is tense (putting is mildly). Grace Richardson is a free spirit who writes for a travel magazine. The two sisters have conflicting opinions. I felt bad for Adam who got dragged into some of the family dinners and drama. The family eats at different Asian restaurants around town. The food descriptions had me craving my favorite Chinese dishes. I thought the story progressed at steady pace with interesting characters and revelations. The mystery touches upon the sensitive topic of domestic abuse. I did not have a hard time pinpointing the guilty party, but others might find it challenging (depends upon your amateur sleuth status). I hope Lana’s grandmother gets some help in understanding English soon (por thing). Lana needs to be cued in that there is an app for that. The Lee family has their issues, but they love each other. Wonton Terror is a lighthearted cozy mystery with nummy noodles, kin commotion, a big boom, vacation vacillation, and murder mayhem.

    Enjoyable cozy mystery

    This was such a fun cozy read. Lana is the manager at her parent's Asian restaurant. Her roommate, Megan, helps her investigate and they bounce ideas off each other. Her boyfriend, Adam, is a detective. Her dog is named Kikkoman, which I thought was so adorable! I enjoyed the family dynamics. Although the story dealt with domestic abuse, the author handled it very well. I enjoyed this story from beginning to end. This is a new to me series and even though I started off with book #4, I didn't feel lost. But I just bought books 1-3, because I definitely want to read this series from the beginning. If you are looking for a new cozy series, I highly recommend this one. I can't wait to read the rest. Thank you to Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for the copy. All opinions expressed are my own.
