Death by Dumpling
By

Rating
Lana Lee never thought she'd be stuck working at the family restaurant in her late twenties, but here she is, wiping down tables sticky with the remnants of General Tso's chicken. But after a messy breakup and a dead-end job, she figured working at the Ho-Lee Noodle House wouldn't be too bad, right? The charming shopping plaza, Asia Village, is where Lana spent most of her childhood and although she'd rather avoid it for that specific reason; she agrees to work full-time at the restaurant until a better prospect of employment comes along. Things seem to be going smoothly enough until one of the property managers of the shopping plaza, Thomas Feng, is found dead in his office. Unfortunately, for Lana and the restaurant's head chef, the death looks like murder, and the murder weapon looks like dumplings from none other than the Ho-Lee Noodle House. While the dumplings look innocent enough, it's what's on the inside that counts, which is pork and shrimp, a deadly combination for Thomas, who everyone knows suffers from a severe shellfish allergy. The police immediately suspect Lana's family, and now, with her parents' restaurant at stake, she sees no other option but to figure out what really happened to Thomas, and why.

Reviews

"A charming debut with plenty of red herrings. The heroine's future looks bright."--Kirkus Reviews "Thoroughly entertaining... A fun and delicious read!"--RT Book Reviews "Life does not always take the path you want it to, which is an understatement when you find yourself delivering the dumplings that kill a man. The ending certainly left me wanting to continue reading a series starring Lee."--Book Riot "Vivien Chien serves up a delicious mystery with a side order of soy sauce and sass. A tasty start to a new mystery series!" --Kylie Logan, bestselling author of Gone with the Twins "Vivien Chien brings a fresh new voice to cozies. Death by Dumpling is a fun and sassy debut with unique flavor, local flair, and heart." --Amanda Flower, Agatha Award-Winning author of Lethal Licorice "A cozy mystery with laughs, and a relatable amateur sleuth."--Book Riot "What a charming book! This will definitely appeal to any cozy mystery. The Asian venue was a fresh and unique setting for the mystery. This isn't your average everyday cozy!"--Mystereity Reviews "The setting (a shopping plaza dedicated to Asian businesses) and the characters (the various merchants who work in the plaza and their friends and family members) were really well-done."--Read-At-Home Mom
