Mei can never catch a break from mysteries!
With her tea shop now open and living her dream life married to Yasahiro Suga, she's just trying to avoid bad luck and live a normal life. But when a friend shows up asking for help with an old missing person's case, Mei can't resist the pull of a mystery unsolved. She knew the young woman who went missing and had always wondered what happened to her. Now's her chance to find out, even if it turns long-time Chikata residents against her.
While Mei is working at the tea shop and helping with the case, she's also assisting her mom on the family farm. Convincing her mom to renovate the old house is not an easy task, and Mei is continually frustrated by her mom's lack of enthusiasm for the project. Until Mei's brother shows up and wants to buy the business out from under her, betraying Mei and Yasahiro in the process.
Can Mei find the missing woman and keep her reputation intact? And will she and Yasahiro repair their relationship with Mei's mom before it tears their family apart?
With her head in the clouds and a taste for solving crime, you don't want to miss Mei in The Daydreamer Detective Returns A Favor, the surprisingly rich fourth course to the Miso Cozy series of cozy mystery novels.
