Publisher's Summary

This delectable and witty mystery introduces Rosie "Aunty" Lee, feisty widow, amateur sleuth, and proprietor of Singapore's best-loved home-cooking restaurant.

After losing her husband, Rosie Lee could have become one of Singapore's "tai tai," an idle rich lady. Instead she is building a culinary empire from her restaurant, Aunty Lee's Delights, where spicy Singaporean meals are graciously served to locals and tourists alike. But when a body is found in one of Singapore's tourist havens and one of her guests fails to show at a dinner party, Aunty Lee knows that the two events are likely connected.

The murder and disappearance throws together Aunty Lee's henpecked stepson, Mark, his social-climbing wife, Selina, a gay couple whose love is still illegal in Singapore, and an elderly Australian tourist couple whose visit may mask a deeper purpose. Investigating the murder are Police Commissioner Raja and Senior Staff Sergeant Salim, who quickly discover that Aunty Lee's sharp nose for intrigue can sniff out clues that elude law enforcers.

Very, very lovable Aunty Lee!

This was such a fun listen. Aunty Lee is the most fun heroine since Precious Ramotswe. The story is wonderfully read and develops gradually across the breadth of the novel. I never felt like there were boring parts I wanted to skip. Loved the ending.

Tight storyline and fun introduction to Singapore

Loved the plot, and the references to Singaporean culture. The story was engaging and kudos to the narrator for bringing the characters to life.

Amazing!

Such a wonderful and enjoyable book! The characters were great especially Aunty Lee and I loved all the delicious food! Definitely my new favourite author with progressive and inclusive ideas that aren't always found in this genre! The narrator was also excellent and her Australian accents were impressive!
