Wonton Terror: 10/09/19

Wonton Terror

Wonton Terror by Vivien Chien is the fourth of the Noodle Shop mysteries. Lana Lee has settled into her new roll as the restaurant manager. She and the restaurant have started participating in the Cleveland Night Market with a food cart. The Noodle Shop is ready to embrace the food truck craze.

On one particular night market, there's an explosion at the Wonton Wheels food truck. The woman who co-runs it is injured and her husband is killed. The police believe the woman (and possibly her son) are behind the explosion as insurance fraud or maybe some highly personal reason.

Lana's mom is good friends with the accused woman and is insistent that she couldn't be behind the murder. So Lana finds herself roped into investigating another case.

As it happens, Wonton Terror is the second food truck centered mystery I've read in recent weeks. The first one was A Brew to a Kill by Cleo Coyle (2013). While both were fun reads, I found Chien's mystery the more entertaining and straightforward.

The fifth book in the series is Egg Drop Dead and will be released February 25, 2020.

Five stars
