WONTON TERROR is book four in the Noodle Shop Mystery series. This is a series that I have enjoyed in the past because of the premise of it. However, the more I read these books, there are things that I am discovering about this author and her writing style.
First off, let me start with what I liked about the book. I’ve always been a big fan of the Asian influence in this series. It’s definitely one of the most unique Cozy Mystery series out there and I do hope that more series come from this idea from other authors as well. It’s nice to see the Asian community represented in books.
But as I read this series I am quickly realizing that these stories tend to be very light in comparison to the other Cozy Mystery books I read. I don’t mean that they are slow in pacing or anything like that, but the conflict and writing style just tends to be more amateur in style. I just don’t think that they are as well-developed but that’s just my personal opinion. I’m looking forward to see Chien’s writing in the future to see how it develops and grows. But WONTON TERROR is definitely a quick and fun read that I found still enjoyable.

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!
