I love cozy mysteries and this one sounded like fun when I read the summary. I didn't end up liking it as much as I thought I would, though. I've read quite a few cozy mysteries and like the creative touches that a lot of authors in this genre have given their books which I felt were lacking in this one.

Let's start with what I didn't like: Joy-Li talks quite a bit about healthy Chinese food and how easy and delicious it is, but there wasn't one recipe in this book! I'm not looking for a recipe b

Having only just read the last two Cheongsam Fashion Mystery books, I already had a slight notion about what this one was going to be about.

Fashion and Murder!

(I also had a huge urge to read it… I really do like these books)

The plot is well thought out and good, it does remind me slightly of ‘Two Egg Rolls and a Side of Murder’ but I guess they’re both crime books and they will be slightly similar.

The thing I loved most about this plot is the twists and turns that will keep any reader intrigued

A trilogy of crime fiction by the debut author Carly Carter. The heroine, Joy-Li Judson, solves the murder of the local society queen in her backyard. This is a light-hearted, humorous (kind of) and easy to read novel which focuses on Joy-Li's twin passions of fashion and crime.

I'm afraid, that's where the good news stops. I didn't enjoy this book at all. So much so, that I haven't read the other two in the series, The Mysterious Rice Bowl and Two Egg Rolls and a Side of Murder. I found the stor

Unfortunately, this book had very shallow characters. The heroine was so badly written that for a short while I was rooting for the bad guys. Her motives in becoming a sort of a "hobby detective" are not really clear. The other characters are as shallow/badly written, and it had such a promise (I mean the name and the setting). I am giving it 2 stars and not 1 only because I feel for an inexperienced author who goes through non-traditional channels. However, investment in a good editor might ...more

The story and main character were really appealing. Unfortunately there were so many typos-spelling mistakes, wrong words, missing words, repetitions-I couldn't finish the book. The fact that I got halfway through it before quitting is a tribute to the fact that this could be a good book with some basic copy editing.
