1. I can't resist ice cream.
2. I started my first book a month after I had my first baby.
3. And now that she's seven, I brainstorm story ideas with my girl.
4. Instead of reading to my children, I make up stories round-robin style with my children at bedtime.
5. I secretly want Raina Sun's life.


My books are my legacy to my children. Unfortunately, they won't grow up in the San Francisco Bay Area as I did. Without a cultural hub to keep the language and philosophies alive, our family will lose this part of our heritage in one generation. My children will be visitors to this rich culture just like my readers. I hope you'll enjoy your time with Raina Sun and her large dynamic family.

Chinese customs, amateur sleuth, murder investigation, family dynamics, Toronto, humor, seniors Exciting and confusing, kept me guessing til the end! This time murder catches up to Raina and her PoPo in Toronto where Raina is still trying to lay hands on her grandfather's diary for PoPo. This involves the leader of one of the triads, and he wants her to pretend to be his fiancee at a party for his brother. Enter PoPo the eccentric just about the time that a murder occurs, right in the home of the gang's familial head! Hijinks, humor, police and more ensue. Don't take my word for it, but stick your nose into it and let yourself get caught in the mystery. Even if you haven't read any of the previous ones, you'll get an insight into some Chinese cultural beliefs and probably want to investigate further. I requested and received a free review copy.

I enjoyed this story very much. There were times I was laughing so hard I cried. I can not wait to see what Anne writes next.

I received an early copy of the book and voluntarily wanted to review it. The story is very well told, the characters well-defined, and it is filled with some great information on Chinese-American culture. The book continues the search for information about an old family scandal, but with the complication of a murder investigation. A great entry in a fun mystery series.,
