About Aunty Lee's Chilled Revenge

• Paperback: 368 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks (April 5, 2016)

 Rosie “Aunty” Lee—feisty widow, amateur sleuth and proprietor of Singapore’s best-loved home cooking restaurant—is back in another delectable, witty mystery set in Singapore. Slightly hobbled by a twisted ankle, crime-solving restaurateur Aunty Lee begrudgingly agrees to take a rest from running her famous café, Aunty Lee’s Delights, and turns over operations to her friend and new business partner Cherril. The café serves as a meeting place for an animal rescue society that Cherril once supported. They were forced to dissolve three years earlier after a British expat killed the puppy she’d adopted, sparking a firestorm of scandal. The expat, Allison Fitzgerald, left Singapore in disgrace, but has returned with an ax to grind (and a lawsuit). At the café one afternoon, Cherril receives word that Allison has been found dead in her hotel—and foul play is suspected. When a veterinarian, who was also involved in the scandal, is found dead, suspicion soon falls on the animal activists. What started with an internet witch hunt has ended in murder—and in a tightly knit, law-and-order society like Singapore, everyone is on edge. Before anyone else gets hurt—and to save her business—Aunty Lee must get to the bottom of what really happened three years earlier, and figure out who is to be trusted in this tangled web of scandal and lies.

Review: I read the first book in this series when it came out and I loved it. These books are such fun and I have always felt I learned something while reading them.

This is a wonderful series that is set in Singapore and it treats its readers to a taste of the culture as well as some humor.

The heroine is a widow who owns a restaurant. I like the comparisons Miss Marple and Jessica Fletcher. I can definitely agree with those, Jessica Fletcher the most, although I think Aunty Lee gets a lot more drama than Jessica.

This was a fabulous suspenseful novel that kept the pages turning.

Rating: 4 flowers

I keep meaning to read this series but something always comes up. Then a new book comes out and I'm reminded how much I think I'd love getting to know Aunty Lee. I'm glad you are enjoying the series! Thanks for being a part of the tour.
