Light mystery, Asian-American culture, fun read
After a rough break up, Lila moves back home to help with the family restaurant. "Home" is packed with amusing Filipino "aunties" and a culture built around food and family. Add in a couple murders and you have a delightful cozy mystery.
Are there better mysteries out there? Yes, but this one is worth your time for the bonuses it give: the language and dialogue are fun and amusing, the glimpse into Asian-American culture is worthwhile, and the story line is entertaining. A perfect summer read!
