A Noodle Shop Mystery

After a brutal break-up and a dramatic workplace walk-out, Lana Lee finds returns to her family’s Ho-Lee Noodle House to wait tables—and fend off her mother’s attempts at matchmaking. But between the sweet, sour and spicy dishes, murder becomes a delicacy, and Lana finds herself playing detective in Vivien Chen’s Noodle Shop Mystery series.

Death by Dumpling is a fun and sassy debut with unique flavor, local flair, and heart.”—Amanda Flower, Agatha Award-winning author of Lethal Licorice

Vivien Chien

Vivien Chien was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio where she grew up in a mixed-race home, making for some very interesting cultural experiences. She found her love of books and the written word at an early age while writing short stories about her classmates in elementary school. Currently, she writes side-by-side with her toy fox terrier who refuses to sit anywhere else. When she’s not writing, Vivien enjoys frequenting local Asian restaurants, frolicking in the bookstore, and searching for her next donut.

She is the author of the Noodle Shop Mystery series, including Death By Dumpling.
