My Mystery Favorite for August

The last two weeks in August, I was in the mood for something light to listen to on my morning writing break, typically a walk with views of the Rocky Mountains in the distance.

Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers by Jesse Q. Sutanto was a delightful choice, recommended to me by a mystery-loving friend. The audio version even enhanced my enjoyment of this little bit quirky, and a lot charming, story.

With a clever plot, multiple suspects, and a highly unusual amateur sleuth, it’s a murder mystery with memorable characters, sweet humor, and bewitching heart.

I say that with enthusiasm after finishing the book and realizing it took me a few chapters to be pulled in by a lonely, little old lady operating a declining tea shop in San Francisco’s Chinatown. And now, I can’t get Vera Wong out of my mind.
