Death by Dumpling Summary

Welcome to the Ho-Lee Noodle House, where the Chinese food is to die for....

The last place Lana Lee thought she would ever end up is back at her family’s restaurant. But after a brutal breakup and a dramatic workplace walkout, she figures that helping wait tables is her best option for putting her life back together. Even if that means having to put up with her mother, who is dead set on finding her a husband. 

Lana’s love life soon becomes yesterday’s news once the restaurant’s property manager, Mr. Feng, turns up dead - after a delivery of shrimp dumplings from Ho-Lee. But how could this have happened when everyone on staff knew about Mr. Feng’s severe, life-threatening shellfish allergy? 

Now, with the whole restaurant under suspicion for murder and the local media in a feeding frenzy - to say nothing of the gorgeous police detective who keeps turning up for takeout - it’s up to Lana to find out who is behind Feng’s killer order...before her own number is up.

“Vivien Chien serves up a delicious mystery with a side order of soy sauce and sass. A tasty start to a new mystery series!” (Kylie Logan, best-selling author of Gone with the Twins)

"Deathby Dumpling is a fun and sassy debut with unique flavor, local flair, and heart.” (Amanda Flower, Agatha Award-winning author of Lethal Licorice)
