Fatal Fried Rice: 04/18/21
Fatal Fried Rice by Vivien Chien is the seventh book in the Noodle Shop mystery series. Lana has signed up for a cooking class at a nearby community college to improve her management of the family restaurant. On the night of the first class, the teacher ends up murdered and Lana is on the case.
This mystery brings back the series back into its groove. There is a good mixture of potential suspects: new and old ones. Lana's investigation expands the map around Asia Village. It also gives more nuance to her family dynamics.
There's a good mixture of clues and red herrings. I got close to solving the mystery before Lana. Although I didn't figure things out, I still found the ride satisfying.
The eighth book is Hot and Sour Suspects. It releases January 25th, 2022.
