Fatal Fried Rice

It's always fun to read the Noodle House cozy series by Vivien Chien.  The books are a great mix of mystery and humorous situations.  Lana Lee has a knack for getting into awkward situations.  This book she finds herself in an especially tricky situation when she attempts to learn to cook Chinese food from a course instead of asking for help at her family's restaurant.  Her stubborn pride gets her in the middle of a murder where she is a suspect.  Then her nosiness gets her into a bigger mess.  

All in all this is a fun book that has a good mystery even if the reader rolls their eyes at Lana and her friends' decisions.   The mystery has a good ending that isn't readily predicted.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It is always enjoyable to read about the escapades of Lana Lee. This time Kimmy Tran and Megan helped her solve the mystery she found herself in the middle of. Unlike the other times, she was a suspect this time. I enjoyed the development of her relationship with her sister and her sister's boyfriend, Henry. This makes here seem that much more realistic. The mystery was a good one that had a surprise ending even though you were pretty sure who the guilty party was. Looking forward to more stories about the Ho Lee Noodle House
