Into the Wild

Death by Dumpling (A Noodle Shop Mystery #1) Read Online Free - Welcome to the Ho-Lee Noodle House, where the Chinese food is to die for. . .

The last place Lana Lee thought she would ever end up is back at her family’s restaurant. But after a brutal break-up and a dramatic workplace walk-out, she figures that a return to the Cleveland area to help wait tables is her best option for putting her life back together. Even if that means having to put up with her mother, who is dead-set on finding her a husband.

Lana’s love life soon becomes yesterday’s news once the restaurant’s property manager, Mr. Feng, turns up dead―after a delivery of shrimp dumplings from Ho-Lee. But how could this have happened when everyone on staff knew about Mr. Feng’s severe, life-threatening shellfish allergy? Now, with the whole restaurant under suspicion for murder and the local media in a feeding frenzy―to say nothing of the gorgeous police detective who keeps turning up for take-out―it’s up to Lana to find out who is behind Feng’s killer order. . . before her own number is up.

This was a fun little debut cozy set in a Chinese neighborhood in Cleveland. I liked that the amateur detective, Lana Lee, is a bit of a failure at life, recently moving back in with her parents and waitressing at the family restaurant. Because of this she gets pulled into a murder-by-poison situ...

An amazing initial book in a series. The setting is uncommon in a cozy mystery. A refreshing read about the Asian people and their culture. There was minimal food mentioned . I found that to be lacking. Figuring out who the murderer  had me thinking right up till the end. Later I'm hit with a sho...

What a charming book! This will definitely appeal to any cozy mystery reader, but I can see it being a hit with younger readers (and by younger, I mean younger than my creaky middle aged bones! Young people in their 20s or perhaps even teenagers (there's no bad language or sexual situations) woul...

I’ll be honest. The cover of this book totally caught my attention and when I learned that it was going to center around a noodle shop, I knew I had to read it. It’s not often I come across a series that is so focused on Asian culture and as an Asian myself, it made me proud to see this series....

Grab your chopsticks! This fun first in series will make you want to dig into a plate of dumplings! It was interesting to see a different culture represented by the noodle shop and Lana's unique ethnic background. A well planned mystery that kept me guessing until the end. I really enjoyed the tw...
