Description

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 helping 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.

"Vivien Chien serves up a delicious mystery with a side order of soy sauce and sass. A tasty start to a new mystery series!" —Kylie Logan, bestselling author of Gone with the Twins

"Deathby Dumpling is a fun and sassy debut with unique flavor, local flair, and heart." —Amanda Flower, Agatha Award—winning author of Lethal Licorice

        January 15, 2018
        Can an amateur detective solve a case of poisoning by dumpling?Lana Lee's rough year is about to get worse. First she split up with her cheating boyfriend, then she quit her job. In order to keep paying her share of the rent for the place she shares with Megan Riley, she's working for her parents as a hostess and waitress at Ho-Lee Noodle House in Fairview Park, Ohio. Half Taiwanese, half English, Lana's grown up with many of the neighboring shopkeepers at Asia Village, an attractive shopping center owned by Thomas Feng and his trainee partner, Ian Sung. Arriving at Feng's office to deliver his lunch, she's almost run over by a furious Kimmy Tran, who's just finished screaming at Mr. Feng. Later that day, Mr. Feng is found dead, possibly from an allergic reaction to shrimp, something he's usually careful to avoid. Handsome Detective Adam Trudeau suspects that his death was no accident, and his prime suspect is noodle house chef Peter Huang. The new widow, Donna Feng, also seems to suspect Peter, though she says little and acts with quiet dignity. Tired of Lana's moping around, Megan encourages her to investigate the death, even splurging for a book on how to become a detective. Lana's mother, who only wants to see her happily married, is delighted that Lana finds Trudeau attractive and has been asked out by Ian Sung, who, backed by Mrs. Feng, plans to take over the operation of Asia Village. If Peter really is innocent, Lana must figure out who else switched the dumplings and removed Feng's EpiPen. Her snooping uncovers many hidden secrets, but determining which one was enough to kill for proves both difficult and dangerous.A charming debut with plenty of red herrings. The heroine's future looks bright.
