"Dim Sum of All Fears" is the second book in the Noodle Shop Mystery Series! It’s revolves around Lana Lee, a twentysomething waitress who works in her family’s Chinese restaurant.
In this latest addition, Lana’s parents have to go to Taiwan to take care of some family business, so they leave Lana in charge of the restaurant. While they’re away, the newlyweds who just opened the souvenir store next door have turned up dead—murdered in their own store. So, Lana takes it upon herself to catch the killer.
First off, I’m in LOVE with this series. Love it. This first book in the series was amazing, and the second addition was so much better! The characters were all still delightfully charming and interesting. All of them have grown a bit too, especially Lana. And I really enjoyed seeing that. I really connected with Lana because I’m literally just like her, and I’m currently going through the same life problems, trying to figure out what to do next in life.
I can’t tell you how cool it is to see myself in a character. It really brings the story alive, and just makes Lana feel so real. The same with her family, and all the other characters.
The mystery itself was very compelling and twisty. So many unpredictable moments and surprises. I was seriously so hooked that I devoured this book in a day. It’s just that good. The writing was great, and the pacing was excellent. And everything just fit together so well.
Overall, this book was awesome! A true A+. I can’t wait for the next addition. I need it like ASAP.
Welcome back to Ho-Lee Noodle House, where you can get fantastic take-out. . .unless you get taken out first.

Dim Sum of All Fears is the second book in a delicious new cozy series.
Lana Lee is a dutiful daughter, waiting tables at her family’s Chinese restaurant even though she’d rather be doing just about anything else. Then, just when she has a chance for a “real” job, her parents take off to Taiwan, leaving Lana in charge. Surprising everyone—including herself—she turns out to be quite capable of running the place. Unfortunately, the newlyweds who just opened the souvenir store next door to Ho-Lee have turned up dead. . .and soon Lana finds herself in the midst of an Asia Village mystery.
Between running the Ho-Lee and trying to figure out whether the rock-solid Detective Adam Trudeau is actually her boyfriend, Lana knows she shouldn’t pry into the case. But the more she learns about the dead husband, his ex-wives, and all the murky details of the couple’s past, the more Lana thinks that this so-called murder/suicide is a straight-up order of murder. . .
