Can’t Wait Wednesday: Arsenic and Adobo by Mia P. Manansala

A cozy mystery with a restaurant, nosy aunties and a Dachshund!

Can’t Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. So I have a while to wait!

I love finding out about books set to publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

I’m excited to read . . .

Arsenic and Adobo

by Mia P. Manansala

Series: Tita Rosie’s Kitchen Mystery #1

Published by Berkley

Publishing date: May 4

Genre: Cozy Mystery

336 pages

Synopsis: When Lila Macapagal moves back home to recover from a horrible breakup, her life seems to be following all the typical rom-com tropes. She’s tasked with saving her Tita Rosie’s failing restaurant, and she has to deal with a group of matchmaking aunties who shower her with love and judgment. But when a notoriously nasty food critic (who happens to be her ex-boyfriend) drops dead moments after a confrontation with Lila, her life quickly swerves from a Nora Ephron romp to an Agatha Christie case.

With the cops treating her like she’s the one and only suspect, and the shady landlord looking to finally kick the Macapagal family out and resell the storefront, Lila’s left with no choice but to conduct her own investigation. Armed with the nosy auntie network, her barista best bud, and her trusted Dachshund, Longanisa, Lila takes on this tasty, twisted case and soon finds her own neck on the chopping block…

…………………………

I love the colorful cover of this book and it sounds like a fun beginning for this first mystery in a new series. I am looking forward to reading about Longanisa, Lila’s Dachshund, plus her aunties. I love reading about aunties!
