Aunty Lee’s Deadly Specials by Ovidia Yu
Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks; Original edition (September 30, 2014)
Then, Mabel Sung and her son Leonard are found dead. The authorities blame it on Aunty Lee’s special stewed chicken with buah keluak, a local black nut that can be poisonous if cooked improperly. Aunty Lee has never carelessly prepared a dish. She’s certain the deaths are murder—and that they’re somehow linked to the organ donor scandal.
To save her business and her reputation, she’s got to prove it—and unmask a dangerous killer whose next victim may just be Aunty Lee.
Oh how I loved this book! I loved Aunty Lee and her nothing barred attitude! Nothing is going to stop her from finding out who’s going around murdering people, even if nobody wants her help.
The book is full of a mix of diverse characters, and together they make this book a joy to read. The writing has a good flow that makes it easy to read, and I was surprised by how quickly I was at the end of this fun book.
This is book two in the Aunty Lee series, and now I want to read book one. This is now one of my favorite cozy series, and I hope if you’re reading this review, you’ll pick up a copy of this book and the first book, Aunty Lee’s Delights
