That's a great list and so looking forward to the PBS series! Book wise, I'm partial to my hometown Author Vivien Chien's Ho-Lee Noodle Shop Mysteries, which take place in the Cleveland, Ohio burbs. There are eight of these cozy mysteries and the protagonist Lana Lee, is half-Taiwanese, half-Caucasian, mirroring many children of G.I.s, once stationed overseas (not to mention the author, herself Taiwanese-Italian.)
