About

Overview

Ever since she can remember, Vanessa Yu has been able to see people’s fortunes at the bottom of their teacups. The fortunes find a way to complicate her life and the ones of those around her. When Vanessa sees death for the first time. She decides that she can’t truly live until she can find a way to get rid of her uncanny abilities. When her eccentric Aunt Evelyn shows up with a tempting offer to whisk her away, Vanessa says au revoir to California and bonjour to Paris. There, Vanessa learns more about herself and realizes one thing to be true: knowing one’s destiny isn’t a curse, but being unable to change it is.

Customer Reviews

“Lim follows Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune with another picturesque fabulist rom-com. . . . Lim flexes her descriptive powers. . . . The eccentric and lovably meddlesome Yu family are a constant delight. . . . the characters sparkle, the magic successfully enchants, and Lim skewers the anti-Asian racism the Yus face in France with pointed and timely commentary. This feast for the senses will especially appeal to hopeless romantics.”
