This is a romance complicated by several issues; both Clarisse and Harry are recently out of relationships killed by infidelity, they are of different ethnic cultures and, most importantly, there is the presence of Philippine superstition and evil involving an heirloom family chair. Frankly, I never really understood how the chair became so malevolent and how the Catholic pellegrina worked to combat it but it was all part of ensuring a pleasant ending to this innocent romance.
As a side note, I

Five days to decide if you were meant for each. Can a chair really for see the future? A meeting like no other which will predict your chances on love. It is an interesting outlook on the old age matchmaking with a twist. It was an enjoyable read.

This untaxing, easy read is a pretty entertaining way to fill a few hours. The story is a simple one, yet intriguing and engaging right from the outset, the cosy mystery of the scarlet chair keeping me attentive enough to read the book in one sitting. This is a warm and affectionate paranormal romance for young adults, and whilst the supernatural qualities of the chair are indeed somewhat malevolent, they are generally more mystical and superstitious than particularly dark. Almost metaphorical ...more

This book caught me by surprise and I was impressed by the authors narrative. It's a good story about two people coming together in love from different cultures and faced with the problems of dealing with superstition, awkward customs and the supernatural at the same time. It could also be categorised as a new adult clean romance sub-genre. The book takes you on a journey through Manila and South-East Asian culture while confronting the norms of western behaviour. This is part of a series, and I ...more

Amazing

I want to start off by saying that I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. In return for my honest review and thoughts. I really enjoyed this book. I was not disappointed at all. Enjoyed the characters and that is set up in the Philippines. I haven't read anything set there. Reading about all the superstitions was amazing. Highly recommended this book. It's short and beautiful written book. Can’t wait to the read book two

I received a copy of this book through an advanced reader copy - ARC. I did not know what to expect and I ended up enjoying it very much. It's a cross over new adult romance genre with elements of paranormal and supernatural, set in south-east Asia. The novel is well written and structured with a storyline that is very unique.

Shelves: dnf
I liked the premise to this book and really wanted to be able to read this but I just couldn't. The language itself and how it is written is what caused me to DNF this book. I just couldn't get past the way people spoke and the inner monologues. I understand this is probably written this way on purpose but my brain just couldn't compute the language so my ability to read was very stilted. My admittedly lacking knowledge of life in Manila and social mores came into play as to why I just could ...more
