Once again Lana Lee is trying to solve a mystery with her roommate, Megan, and best friend, Kimmie, in Fatal Fried Rice.
It’s embarrassing but family-owed Noodle House manager, Lana, can’t cook Chinese food. She sneaks off to a night class to learn on the sly. Of course, she finds the dead body of the instructor and is promptly the number one suspect. She and her friends must solve the crime to get Lana off the hook.
If you are not a proficent armchair detective, you will enjoy discovering the murderer. The mystery within Fatal Fried Rice is not very challenging. However, the humorous and complicated Taiwanese family dynamics make for an interesting few hours. 3 stars.
