She's got her head in the clouds and a taste for solving crime…
Mei Yamagawa is out of luck and out of money. After five years in Tokyo, she has little to show for it besides a laundry list of unrealized dreams. Left without a choice, she returns to her rural Japanese hometown, ready to be branded a failure by her relatives and rivals. At the least, she looks forward to seeing her best friend, until Akiko is accused of murdering her own father.
As Mei helps her farmer mother with the crops, she scouts for clues to clear her friend's name. But during her investigation, she can't help but notice the celebrity chef looking in her direction. The amateur detective can balance a new love interest and a murder case… can't she?
To clear her friend of the crime and find the real killer, Mei's going to need every last ounce of her imagination… and just a pinch of luck.

Mystery in Japan!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Daydeamer Detective. Seldom read Cozy Mysteries, but the setting being in Japan caught my attention and I had to give it a try. Stephanie did a great job of developing the characters and made it very hard to put it down, until I found out what happened. Can't wait to read the next installment.
