Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Jennifer J. Chow!

Writes: Cozy mysteries filled with hope and heritage. HOT POT MURDER features Yale and Celine Yee, cousins with opposite personalities who run a food stall at a night market. When their hot pot dinner with local restaurant owners results in a – literally - shocking end, the two are ready to help serve justice.

About: A SoCal gal who loves matcha hot - or on the rocks - I enjoy dolphin watching on the beach and taking copious photos of flowers. When not reading or writing, I can be found checking out new boba shops.

I’m looking for readers who delight in:

  • Fun whodunit plots
  • Cultural tidbits and factoids
  • Close-knit family ties
  • Quirky sidekicks and characters
  • Numerous foodie descriptions

What to expect if we're compatible:

  • Punny jokes and titles
  • Free recipes in my culinary cozies
  • Explorations of a lesser-known Los Angeles
  • Characters who gain much-needed insight
  • A sweet dash of romance

HOT POT MURDER by Jennifer J. Chow

L.A. Night Market #2

Hot Pot Murder

Trouble is brewing for cousins Yale and Celine Yee after a hot pot dinner gets overheated and ends in murder in this second novel of the L.A. Night Market series by Jennifer J. Chow.

Yale and Celine Yee’s food stall business is going so well that they’ve been invited to join an exclusive dinner with the local restaurant owners association. The members gather together for a relaxing hot pot feast…until Jeffery Vue, president of the group, receives a literal shock to his system and dies.

Everyone at the meal is a suspect, but the authorities are homing in on family friend Ai Ho, owner of the restaurant where Jeffery was killed—and Yale’s dad is a close second on their list. Yale and Celine step up to the plate and investigate the dinner attendees: the association’s ambitious VP, a familiar frenemy, a ramen king, a snacks shopkeeper, and a second-generation restaurateur. It’s up to the detecting duo to figure out what really happened before their friends and family have to close their businesses for good.
