EGG DROP DEAD is the fifth book in the Noodle Shop Mystery series by Vivien Chien. It’s Lana Lee’s first catering gig, so she wants to make a good impression. However, when one of the domestic helpers drowns in the pool, Donna Feng, the party’s host is suspected. When Donna asks Lana to help her figure out what really happened, a slew of other suspects and clues unfold.
I enjoyed this book a lot more than some of the other books in the series. It just felt a little more complete in terms of the pace and execution, so this has quickly become my favorite of the series so far. I felt like Lana’s character has kind of matured a bit and isn’t just complaining about minial things anymore through the book. She has more drive and purpose, which makes me admire her more as an amateur sleuth.
After this engaging read, I am hoping that Chien can stick to this style in her books because I think they offer a lot more to the reader and keeps them engaged. I look forward to the next book in the series.
