Aunty Lee's Delights

This is a charming cozy written by Ovidia Yu set in Singapore.  Having visited the island nation and specifically Sentosa, I feel it had added charm for me but anyone familiar with the Asian culture and families will find it enjoyable.  It has a good mystery that is surrounded by wonderful character development and interactions.     It is hard not to enjoy the antics of Aunty Lee and her personal aide, Nina.   The dynamics of Asian society comes through very readily but in general it is a great book about how people relate with one another and how our previous conceptions can frame our experiences in a specific circumstance.

I really enjoyed the book and the fact it had more layers than a straightforward cozy.  I look forward to reading more in the series
