GENRE: CULINARY COZY MYSTERY
Vivien Chien cooks up another scrumptious mystery in Wonton Terror! This series is one of my favorites. The heroine is a spicy little thing that defies everything her heritage stands for. Sure, she appreciates her roots but she certainly isn't the demur little thing that many may associate her character with. I love how Vivien gives Lana enough flair to make her stand out as a heroine! Not only that, she's got a lot of "balls" so to speak and isn't afraid to go looking for clues when something isn't right. I appreciate her bravery, sense, and the fact that she stops at nothing for family and friends. Characters truly make the book and Lana and the secondary characters within The Noodle Shop Mystery series make this one of my favorites in the genres!
Wonton Terror is the 4th book in the series and I suggest reading the books in order as they follow the same characters throughout. Some people say you can read cozies in any order you like as they all feature different mysteries but I tend to disagree. I disagree because the characters have a lot of growth as series progress. Whether it be in the romance department or life in general this IS the case for most series just like this one.
That being said, Wonton Terror takes readers on a quest to find a killer who blew up a friend of the families food truck. Vivien creates enough breadcrumbs throughout this story in terms of figuring out who the killer actually is. But there is also a huge twist at the end when everything is revealed- this I did NOT see coming!
Join Lana and her friends as they dig up clues to unearth the mystery of the Killer. You will NOT regret it. You may however come away from the story with a HUGE craving for wonton soup and springs rolls! All of the food mentioned had my stomach grumbling.
