Mei Yamagawa's bad luck is almost at an end…
Her tea shop is a week away from opening, she and Yasahiro have planned a trip away, and the future is looking bright and hopeful. But when Yasahiro's ex-fiancée, Amanda, shows up unexpectedly, demanding his time and presence, all of their plans dissolve. Amanda is tough and drives Mei up the wall, so it's no surprise when Mei tells her to get lost, only for Amanda to be murdered a few hours later. Yasahiro becomes the prime suspect, and Mei must put everything on hold to help free him.
Following Amanda's past through her digital footprint, Mei uncovers secret lovers, shady business deals, and the biggest secret of all, why Amanda and Yasahiro broke up in the first place. With everyone turning against her and the case under media scrutiny, tracking down the killer becomes an obsession Mei can't give up. There's no turning back, though, because solving the murder means getting her life back. Not solving it means losing everything forever.
With her head in the clouds and a taste for solving crime, you don't want to miss Mei in The Daydreamer Detective Opens A Tea Shop, the hearty third course to the Miso Cozy series of cozy mystery novels.

This was such a good read! I love Pajonas her writing style and enjoyed every second of reading this book. The mystery was a good one. I liked how we got to meet Amanda before she was killed as that gave me a better feel for her as a person. I had four suspects for a long time, but wasn't quite sure who was the murderer and how everything fit together. I figured things out shortly before Mei and the others did. I did predict two smaller twists as part of the story. I really liked seeing Mei show her personality in this book, her determination to help Yasahiro and solve this case was admirable. But she has to go through so much in this book, I felt so bad for her. It's a difficult book for her. But I am curious to see how she will change because of what happened in this book. This book is pretty low on the romance and I was a bit sad we didn't see more of Mei and Yasahiro in this book as I love them together. But on the other hand this book is also very important for their relationship I think. And I can't wait to read the next book and see how things play out there! This is one of the best books I read so far this year!
I just finished reading a preview copy of the third Daydreamer Detective book and I’m even more hooked than I was by the first two. The main characters, Mei, Yasha, Goro etc. Seem like old friends and deciding who the real villains are is even harder than before. Couple that with a little surprise (or two) and you have a rollicking good read. Grab it as soon as you can. Now I'm just waiting for Ms Pajonas to write the fourth one.
