Thank you so much to Roselle Lim and to her Publisher, Penguin Random House and Berkley Romance for letting me host the international blog tour of Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune! Close friends of mine already know that I am a huge fan of Helen Hoang and when Helen Hoang introduced this book to Twitter and Goodreads. I can’t help but to build anticipation and enthusiasm towards the book. Who am I to decline a good diverse romance, right? Now, without further ado, I present to everyone: The sign-up form of the blog tour is now live!
Lush and visual, chock-full of delicious recipes, Roselle Lim’s magical debut novel is about food, heritage, and finding family in the most unexpected places.
At the news of her mother’s death, Natalie Tan returns home. The two women hadn’t spoken since Natalie left in anger seven years ago, when her mother refused to support her chosen career as a chef. Natalie is shocked to discover the vibrant neighborhood of San Francisco’s Chinatown that she remembers from her childhood is fading, with businesses failing and families moving out. She’s even more surprised to learn she has inherited her grandmother’s restaurant.
The neighborhood seer reads the restaurant’s fortune in the leaves: Natalie must cook three recipes from her grandmother’s cookbook to aid her struggling neighbors before the restaurant will succeed. Unfortunately, Natalie has no desire to help them try to turn things around–she resents the local shopkeepers for leaving her alone to take care of her agoraphobic mother when she was growing up. But with the support of a surprising new friend and a budding romance, Natalie starts to realize that maybe her neighbors really have been there for her all along.
“Vivid and lyrical with a touch of magic.”–Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Roselle Lim was born in the Philippines and immigrated to Canada as a child. She lived in north Scarborough in a diverse, Asian neighbourhood.
She found her love of writing by listening to her lola (paternal grandmother’s) stories about Filipino folktales. Growing up in a household where Chinese superstition mingled with Filipino Catholicism, she devoured books about mythology, which shaped the fantasies in her novels.
An artist by nature, she considers writing as “painting with words.”
