Gusty Lovers and Cadavers (A Raina Sun Mystery, #2) by Anne R. Tan

Gusty winds...and a trail of destruction. Graduate student Raina Sun is in for a season of mayhem and murder. When she volunteered to take the new foreign exchange student shopping on the last weekend before Christmas, she ended up in a riot for the last hot toy of the season and an abandoned baby. Sometimes it doesn't pay to be a Good Samaritan. But calling the mysterious phone number in the diaper bag leads to more questions than answers. A strange man claims to be the child's father, and his alleged mother turns up dead. The local police are more interested in keeping the town's good name out of international news than considering if there's foul play. And to make matters worse, she has less than a week to find his birth parents before the FBI takes over the case. Raina summons her sleuthing skills to protect this baby and soon discovers everyone has a few skeletons in their closets. With her pimp-cane-toting grandma, she must track down a hidden killer before she becomes the next victim. There's no place for an amateur when it comes to murder... Don't miss out on Raina's new adventure--get your copy of "Gusty Lovers and Cadavers" today!

Ok, hate isn’t the word, frustrated more like it. Rained and Matthew need to get together! Why would Po Po leave. As you can see, I can’t wait to get the next book. Well done Ma. Tam.

Cadavers...Gusty Lovers? Gusty Lovers and Cadavers continues the formula of a successful read from book 1, Raining Men and Corpses. The team, Raina, the protagonist and her grandmother, PoPo are still the fun-loving characters that made you laugh. Since it was the Holidays the team was down one member, Eden, who was on vacation. Raina matured and her circle of interaction was widened by the author. While at the same time creating a deeper, richer narrative that once again washed over the reader as if they were in the book. The author when building her infrastructure for the series to allow room to maneuver what, who, and how. The strategy paid off with another page-turner full of various antics, emotions, family and an abundance of laughter as the main ingredient. (Note: "I received a free copy of this book that I voluntarily chose to review.") Gusty Lovers and Cadavers is a lighthearted page turner that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND: Gusty Lovers and Cadavers: A Chinese Cozy Mystery (A Raina Sun Mystery Book 2) -Tex.

cozy-mystery, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths, chinese-customs, family-dynamics, romance, murder-investigation, humor Read on August 14, 2016 If you're looking for gory stuff and erotica: look elsewhere. If you're looking for a solid mystery with fun characters and lots of situational humor: grab your coffee, sit down, and enjoy! Raina gets put through the wringer by her family while she works to fix things for a tiny baby's future. The mystery is foremost in the story, but since her best sleuthing partner is her Chinese grandmother, the rest just gets folded in. There are lots of suspects and people who turn out not to be what they seem. Well told, and the characters certainly are!
