“Chien’s writing immediately captures your attention.”
~ Under the Covers
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.
As an avid reader of Cozy Mysteries, I was very excited to be able to try this new author. Chien’s writing immediately captures your attention. It’s fun and uplifting, with subtle touches of humor, which I think makes her books relatable even if you aren’t Asian.
I really enjoyed Lana’s narration and am looking forward to read more of her. She was fun and spunky and her supporting cast is just as interesting.
The only thing I would say about this book is that the mystery aspect of this book is a little predictable. More on the simpler side, it was easy for me to guess what happened and that’s not what you want in a mystery. Nevertheless, I am excited for this series and can’t wait to see what Chien has up her sleeve next.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
