Vanessa Yu never wanted to see people's fortunes--or misfortunes--in tea leaves. Ever since she can remember, Vanessa has been able to see people's fortunes at the bottoms of their teacups. To avoid blurting out fortunes, she converts to coffee, but somehow the fortunes escape and find a way to complicate her life and the lives of those around her. To add to this plight, her romantic life is so nonexistent that her parents enlist the services of a matchmaking expert from Shanghai. After her matchmaking appointment, 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 the root of her gifts, and realizes one thing to be true: Knowing one's destiny isn't a curse, but being unable to change it is.

Very cute! I think Get a Life, Chloe Brown did a better job on some of the themes presented in this book, but I also liked the element of escaping to another place to start all over again in a tea and matchmaking business. A fun little read.

I really enjoyed this rom com. The storyline is quite sweet, and the writing was lovely: it made you want to visit Paris - even during COVID. As an in-denial foodie, I enjoyed the descriptions of the food and at times I felt I could not only see the food, but taste it, too.

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.
