    One thought on “Sunny Mates and Murders”

    1. Sunny Mates and Murders Raina Sun 5 Anne R Tan This book was very interesting as in encompasses more Chinese lore and more information about the family. The way the Ms. Tan winds her way through the story she paints in her books is beautifully done. She has expertly and slowly given us more and more of her, I'm assuming, heritage. She has given us snippets in each book. Just enough to keep us looking forward to more. Dressing the characters in fancier and more beautiful accouterments as we went [...]

    2. I love reading this series!Ann R Tan writes well and every Rainey mystery is fun to read! Rainey's on again off again relationship with hunky detective Matthew brings a bit of romance to each book. Rainey's nutty grandma Po Po provides some laughs. In this one, Rainy poses as the fiancé of the head of a Chinese crime family to attend a birthday party for his father, primarily to make his ex ( who married someone else) jealous. During the party his brother is killed. How Rainey solves the myster [...]

    3. ARC - I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest!In order to retrieve her grandfather's journal, Raina has to make a deal w/ the devil.Not really!Just Sonny, the head of the Nine Dragons Triad. Yikes!A girl gotta do what a girl gotta do.Being a pretend fake fiancé might not be that bad, what could go wrong?As always, Po Po is there to keep Raina in check.( or is it the other way around ? who cared? )It is always some much more fun when Po Po is in t [...]

    4. I have enjoyed all of Anne's Raina Sun Mysteries, but this one included so much more. This book included a lot of Chinese traditions and history. It was incredibly interesting. While of course Raina and Po Po continue their comical investigative ways. This book has Raina working with the Chinese organized crime families in order to find out the truth to her Grandfather's journal. A murder finds Raina working with Police, the Chinese Dai Lo and he ex Matthew all at once. Makes for an interesting [...]

    5. This series continues to get better with each book including fun characters, family dynamics, Chinese traditions, murder and mayhem. This can't-put-down book is a great afternoon escape into the world of Raina Sun. Anne Tan never disappoints and I look forward to reading more from this talented author. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    6. Review of the Raina Sun mystery Off course I love this book as well as the previous 4. Can't wait for the next book. There's a 6th book right because we need to know for if Mathew and Raina get marry and I love the grandmother also. This book was funny as usual and sad also.

    7. Interesting story lineGood novel, funny and kept me guessing until the end.Enjoy the cultural information about American Chinese. Give it a try!

    8. Once again Raina saves the day. This time she steps out of her comfort zone into a whole new world and handles it quite well considering. I love the whole dynamics and characters in all of the Sunny Books. Can't wait for the next.

    9. Raina's grandfather's journal has been stolen by a leader of a triad to try to blackmail Raina into helping him solve a murder. As in the previous books in this series, Raina gets into trouble and of course, Grandma Po-Po, with her wisdom, humor, and gadgets, helps Raina find her way. I am always fascinated with the information Anne R. Tan provides about family life and customs, and in this book, about triads. This is really a lovely cozy series with mystery and humor throughout. It's well-writt [...]

    16. This book is Sunny Mates and Murder written by Anne R Tan. The series is the Raina Sun series and it's a great cozy mystery series. The main characters are Raina Sun and her grandmother Po Po, both amateur sleuths and super zany people. They seem to go from one mess right into another, all of their own making. You will be ready to laugh out loud in no time! I will be reading these again. I received a complimentary copy and voluntarily left this review.

    17. In the previous book we met Sonny of the Triad in conjunction to Raina's grandfather's secrets. This book ties Raina's family with a debt owed to them by the Triad. Sonny has Raina's grandfather's journal and will not return it unless she helps him. So off to Canada, she goes and another murder to solve. Matthew shows up and things get interesting but not as interesting as all the things that Po Po does. Enjoy this excellent book as I did and am looking forward to the next book!
