My Rating :
The third in a tasty series, Murder Lo Mein by Vivien Chien is a delight!
Everyone agrees that the food at Ho-Lee Noodle House is delicious—unless it happens to be deadly.
Lana Lee’s stake in her family’s Chinese restaurant is higher than ever now that she’s been made manager. So when she enters Ho-Lee into Cleveland’s Best Noodle Contest, Lana makes it her business to win—at all costs. But when a local food critic receives a threatening note in a fortune cookie and is later found dead, face-down in a bowl of lo mein, all bets are off. . .
Now, along with her sweet-and-sour boyfriend Detective Adam Trudeau, Lana decides to take matters into her own hands and dig into the lives of everyone involved in the contest. But when she receives an ill-fated fortune, Lana realizes that in order to save the reputation of her restaurant, she needs to save herself first.
Murder Lo Mein is the third book in the Noodle Shop mystery series and I think it’s my favorite to date! This could be due to the fact that I love Lo Mein… In any event, this is another fantastic addition to the series and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a culinary cozy, Chinese food, and murder!
In Murder Lo Mein, readers will become reacquainted with Lana Lee, the Noodle House (her family business), and a slew of amazing secondary characters. Things are going great in Lana’s life- she has a new boyfriend (Detective Trudeau), she’s finally feeling at home when shes working in her family business (she wasn’t excited about it at first), and her restaurant is taking part in a competition within their village. Unfortunately, things start to go downhill for everyone when one of the judges is murdered. Lana wants to stay out of it, and many people agree with the sentiment. But she can;t’t help sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong and goes looking for the killer herself! Will this be the end of the Asian Village? Or will Lana catch the killer before anyone else gets hurt?
Once again, this is a wonderful series and it’s filled with delicious foods! My tummy was rumbling the whole way through. I think all cozy mystery lovers sho
