Melissa's Review:

Dim Sum of All Fears is book 2 in A Noodle Shop Mystery series. I had fun with the first book in this series and wound up enjoying this one even more. I'm happy we're getting more diverse reads lately and love that this series involves the Asian culture while having a great whodunit at the same time.

Lana Lee, our leading lady is working at her family's restaurant and trying to find an office job so she can leave the family business. Things don't go as planned though when her parent's drop everything and have to fly overseas to see her grandmother. The person they leave in charge for their several week excursion is none other than Lana, much to everyone's surprise. Lana winds up being quite good at being the restaurant manager around Chinese New Year, when business is booming. Things aren't going to be that easy though, it was quite a shock when Lana's neighboring shop owner Isabelle and her husband Brandon die and foul play is suspected. We unravel Brandon's secrets as the story progresses and there were quite a few red herrings along the way. I wasn't sure what the killer was until it was revealed, which is always promising for a cozy mystery!

Dim Sum of All Fears is a strong sequel I couldn't put down. This installment had a bit of everything I could ask for, a touch of romance since Lana is dating our hunk from book 1, yummy food mentions that had me drooling, and a great mystery. I'm excited to see what mystery Lana will deal with next. If you're a fan of cozy mysteries revolving around food you'll love this series.
