6 posts | 7 read | 2 to read
In the fifth in Vivien Chien's Noodle Shop delectable mystery series, Egg Drop Dead, the Ho-Lee Noodle House takes its business to the next levelonly to end up in hot water. It was supposed to be a fancy, intimate dinner party by the pool. Instead, Lana Lees first-ever catering event turns into full-course madness when a domestic worker is found dead. Is the partys host Donna Feng, the sweet-and-sour owner of the Asia Village shopping plaza where Ho-Lee is situated, somehow to blame? Thats what Lanawhose plate is already plenty full with running the restaurant, pleasing her often-disapproving mother, and fretting over her occasionally-serious boyfriend Detective Adam Trudeaumust find out. Before the police arrived at the crime scene, Donna had entrusted an odd piece of evidence to Lana: a thumb drive shaped like a terra-cotta soldier. Now its up to Lana to lead her own investigation, digitally and in real life, into a world of secrets involving Donnas earlier life in China, whether the victim had a dark agenda, and if the killer is still out there. . .and plans to strike again. Endearing...will appeal to fans of Chris Cavenders Pizza Lovers mysteries.Booklist

1. I have enjoyed some mysteries with unreliable narrators but I think it has to be done well.
2. Bookmarks and totes
3. I like a lot of mystery series. The tagged is one I‘ve been enjoying lately.

Thanks for the tag @Eggs

Because I‘m finishing the tagged book for June #bookspin, I‘m posting July bookspin with the next in the series, Killer Kung Pao. Funny how all the books I added this month to replace books I read ended up in the first column?

Egg Drop Dead has a great cast of characters, a very intriguing mystery, with a bit of romance and humor in all the right places.

Found a new series that I just can‘t seem to put down. Picked up numbers 3-5 at my bookstore but held off starting them before I ordered 1 & 2. I have to start at the beginning of a series (I‘m slightly OCD) but binge read them. Bummed that now I have to wait a few days before number 6 arrives. But they say anticipation makes it taste that much better! Also, the goth in me squeals every time I look on the covers to see the skulls “hidden” there
