This is the 5th book in the Noodle Shop mystery series by Vivien Chien. I always enjoy reading about Lana Lee and her crazy family. Lana has a knack for stumbling into crime scenes and then having her curiosity suck her into the investigation. In this case she is called upon by Donna Feng to help investigate what occurred at her birthday party which Lana was catering.
Character development continues to be a strength of the series and many of the players from previous books reappear in this story as well. Lana's relationship with her roommate, Megan and her friend, Kimmy, play a central role in this story. We also see Pete again in his role as chef and a "brother" to Lana. We get a glimpse at her growing romance with Adam. Their relationship is shown to be strong when a person from Lana's past reappears and causes her to be anxious. Everyone needs an Adam in their corner.
All in all this was a great cozy mystery and I cannot wait for the series to continue.
