I absolutely loved Roselle Lim's debut novel and her second book did not disappoint. This is a light, magical book about finding your own way (despite family or so-called destiny). family, and is a bit of a love letter to Paris as well.

Vanessa Yu has a gift she does not want - she can see the future, and the predictions come out unexpectedly and uncontrollably. She's spent her life fighting the gift (and avoiding the bottoms of teacups) and the result of all this avoidance is becoming unbearable. Oh, and her relationships are a disaster - even a trip to a matchmaker doesn't end the way she or her family expects. A revered auntie who shares her gift invites her to Paris to try to master the gift. Vanessa goes, but she balks at the so-called rules that apply to fortune tellers and tries to carve her own path,

I loved the interactions with her aunties in this book. They are loud, noisy, in your business - and foremost, loving and supportive. Her Aunt Evelyn is a bit of a mystery to Vanessa, and one that she unravels while she lives in Paris.

There is a romantic interest in the story, but I don't know that I would label this a romance. In fact, the romance is the one element that, in the end, I was less than happy with, but I'll leave that to you to decide.

If you are looking for a novel to escape in, Lim's novel catches the magic of Paris beautifully. The sights, and goodness, the FOOD. Her descriptions will sweep you away.

4.25/5 stars!

When Vanessa Yu made her first fortune-telling at the age of three, she had hated that she had this power. After one fortune-telling of the bride at her cousin's wedding, she decided she needed help from her aunt, the other person with the same power. By going to Paris to continue her lessons, Vanessa encounters love, revelation, and secrets from her aunt's past that brings an epiphany and change for herself and her outlook in life

I enjoyed this book because of the heroine's self-discovery, the descriptions of scrumptious food, family dynamics, and romance. I would have liked some more details of certain characters and the future of a set of siblings in relation to a certain situation. Overall, the book has a nice vibe and I look forward to more Roselle Lim books.

**Thanks to the publisher and Harlequin Junkie for the copy.** ( )

A cute romantic comedy has east meeting west in this story of Vanessa Yu. She is part of a large extended family in the Bay area. All her cousins are getting married, but she vows to stay single, partly by choice and partly because she’s clairvoyant and she hates this skill. When a series of tragic predictions send her to Paris under the guidance of her aunt, she learns to accept her fate and finds romance. The bossy, nosy family members are what give this story life and if it isn’t the romance and the family you enjoy there’s always the food. There always seems to be food wherever Vanessa goes. ( )

I picked up this book because I loved the first one. It was nice to meet new characters in this book. It had some of the same type of charm as the first book. However, I did miss the humor and the close emotional connection I experienced with all of the characters in the first book.

Vanessa was a good lead character. On one hand it would be cool to have her ability but on the other hand; it can become a burden. Thus I felt for Vanessa. She really was just trying to live her life. The location of Paris was nice. As I was reading this book, I could picture everything playing out in my mind.

My overall feelings about this book was middle of the road. There were moments that I was really digging this book and other moments where I found myself skimming it. Yet, I do look forward to seeing what the next book is like. I hope it is like the first one. ( )
