    17. I received a free copy from the author via insta freebie The mystery itself was good but my problem was I didn t particularly like any of the characters or their relationships Po po and Raina s relationship could have been good except that Po po lets the entire family villify Raina about the inheritance and doesn t defend her even knowing the whole story I mean I get she feels ashamed and betrayed by what her husband did but her supposedly beloved granddaughter is being attacked by the entire fa [...]

    22. This is the second book of the series and I wish I had read the first book first Raina is an interesting character that is caught in the middle of than one problem She does seem to deal with it quite well despite the circumstances I can t wait to see where her character goes with regards to the two men in her life in the next book She really should consider becoming a detective as mentioned.

    23. I give this book 3.5 stars I had a difficult time getting into it at first It is a very entertaining book with Rain and her Chinese grandmother Po Po up to all sorts of antics I felt sometimes it went a little over the top but became interested in the story half way through the book I would check out one of her other books in the future.

    26. A fun cozy mystery with a Chinese twist A delightful mix of comedy and drama with engaging characters swept up in a quirky plot that kept me turning pages Great for a weekend read after stressful workweek.

    27. Chinese afroNot sure who this character is, just seems to be reacting to circumstances Ancestral angst and a technically rich poor little girl combined with a longed for sexuality with a proper person leaves one wondering how she will stumble through the next life event.

    28. Gusty Lovers and Cadavers is the second book by Amy R Tan that I have read I loved reading both of them Raina Sun and her lively grandmother take on another case to solve and time is of the essence Fast paced, witty and fun to read Highly recommended.

    29. Gusty Lovers and Cadavers is the second book in a series Raina Sun and PoPo Her Grand Mother get involved in another murder mystery they need to solve, Fast Paced with a twist a delightful mix of drama and comedy with a quirky plot.
