Review: Aunty Lee's Chilled Revenge

Aunty Lee's Chilled Revenge (Singaporean Mystery, #3)

Aunty Lee's Chilled Revenge
Ovidia Yu

Aunty Lee is a widow and amateur detective who runs a home style cooking restaurant in Singapore. In this book she is on the hunt for Allison Love's killer. Allison recently returned to Singapore in order to take legal action against some of Aunty Lee's friends and customers who used to work as an animal rescue group. After Allison adopted a pet from their shelter, she had the animal put down. Following a huge outcry over the animal's death she was forced to leave Singapore in disgrace. Now she is back claiming that earlier events led to the break down of her marriage and therefore she is planing legal action against the group's members.

After Allison is discovered dead, Aunty Lee is not only involved in the running of her restaurant but she is also looking after Allison's sister Vallerie. Vallerie is alone in Singapore, and while she and Allison were not always close she his having a hard time dealing with her death. She is also proving to be more than a handful for Aunty Lee. And with the further death of a veterinarian, who was involved in the previous scandal with Allison Love, Aunty Lee is determined to find out who is behind the killings.

This was a fun and interesting read. I particularly liked Aunty Lee, she was wise and feisty as well as observant. The description of the exotic cuisine and characters makes this quite an enticing story. I will be looking for more Aunty Lee episodes in the future. I also think this series would make a great film or television movie due to the exotic dishes mentioned and the interesting location.

Thanks to Goodreads giveaway for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
