Just how reliable are psychics - specifically psychics hired by your sister for wedding entertainment?
When irrepressibly romantic Lucy Gray is ditched at said wedding by her date in front of her whole family, the promises of a psychic seem better than her pity-riddled reality. The psychic's advice seems insightful: stop ignoring fate's signs - fate will lead you to love. But when "fate" leads Lucy to London, she finds herself tangled in a web of lies. In a story about finding independence and taking chances, Lucy learns that leaving everything up to fate can be dangerous - and jeopardize her chances at happily ever after.

This is a lighthearted romance with a relatable character. It was refreshing for me to read a protagonist the same age as me who also happens to reside in the same area as I do.
Not that I would ever do what she did, but it was a fun read nonetheless. I sympathized with her and enjoyed my time with this book. All the characters were fun and easy to like. I didn’t “hate” or get annoyed with any of them.
I thought Lucy’s family would get on my nerves but even they had redeemed themselves and seemed to have their own background stories which was nice.
I found the blog articles written by the family here and there to be a bit jarring and take me out of the story a bit. I felt they were random, even though I didn’t mind reading them. I also thought the ending (I won’t say anything due to spoilers) was a bit predictable. I had figured it out the second time upon meeting the character. And yet, there was one twist I didn’t see coming, which was well done.
Overall, this was a fun, relaxing read.
Rating: 4/5 Coffee Cups
