Meddling and Murder: An Aunty Lee Mystery

About the Book

A delightfully warm and witty mystery from one of Singapore's best-known and most acclaimed writers, perfect for fans of Alexander McCall Smith’s NO. 1 LADIES’ DETECTIVE AGENCY.

Aunty Lee is on the case!

There is nothing Rosie ‘Aunty’ Lee, amateur sleuth and proprietor of Singapore’s best-loved restaurant, loves more than solving other people’s problems. So when Beth Kwuan, an ambitious businesswoman, tells Aunty Lee her maid has disappeared, Aunty Lee is happy to let her own maid, Nina, help.

Only as the weeks go by, little clues make Aunty Lee worry. And as she digs into what is really going on behind the closed doors of Beth’s grand house, she starts to wonder—did Beth’s maid just run away, or did she meet a darker fate?

Now the race is on for Aunty Lee to get to the bottom of the mystery…and save Nina before it’s too late!

Critical Praise

Praise for Ovidia Yu:

“A delicious debut! Aunty Lee’s Delights is no mere whodunnit – it sparkles with insight into the traditions and moral complexities of modern Singapore. Rosie Lee is a terrifically original heroine.” Louise Penny, author of The Beautiful Mystery

“Engaging . . . Fans of Alexander McCall Smith’s No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series will find a lot to like.” Publishers Weekly

“This delightfully anachronistic series debut from playwright and occasional novelist Yu (Miss Moorthy Investigates, 2012, etc.) boasts buoyant prose and a colorful cast, led by the lovably unstoppable sleuth herself.” Kirkus Reviews

“In Yu’s energetic second Singaporean mystery . . . Aunty Lee and her social circle are as vibrantly colorful as the locale.” Publishers Weekly

“This delicious sophomore entry in Yu’s sassy series has the quaint accessibility, colorful characters and quotidian detail of a traditional cozy but also a slyly bracing edge.” Kirkus Reviews

“For her second Aunty Lee novel, Yu has cooked up another tasty mystery.” New York Post
