GIFnotes: Giving you the basic plot summary of an upcoming book with the help of the Graphics Interchange Format.

Welcome to the Ho-Lee Noodle House, where the Chinese food is to die for—take a visual tour of Vivien Chien's first Noodle House Mystery, Death by Dumpling!

The last place Lana Lee thought she would ever end up is back at her family’s restaurant.

But after a brutal break-up…

And a dramatic workplace walk-out…

She figures that helping wait tables is her best option for putting her life back together.

Even if that means having to put up with her mother, who is dead-set on finding her a husband.

Lana’s love life soon becomes yesterday’s news once the restaurant’s property manager, Mr. Feng, turns up dead after a delivery of shrimp dumplings from Ho-Lee.

But how could this have happened when everyone on staff knew about Mr. Feng’s severe, life-threatening shellfish allergy?

Now, with the whole restaurant under suspicion for murder…

And the local media in a feeding frenzy…

To say nothing of the gorgeous police detective who keeps turning up for take-out…

It’s up to Lana to find out who is behind Feng’s killer order … before her own number is up.
