Vanessa Yu's Magical Paris Tea Shop by Roselle Lim

Vanessa can see prophecies but she can't control them.  She'll be drinking tea and the prophecy just blurts out of her.  The worst part is most of them foresee death.  She decides to visit Paris and her aunt there.  Maybe she can help her control them...

Berkley and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for for review (thank you).  It will be published on August 4th.

Aunt Evelyn says she's getting headaches because she's full of prophecies and she'll have to let them out.  As she serves tea and cookies, she also occasionally serves up prophecies.  When she finally runs out, her aunt tries to teach her to do it without tea.  That's not working.  When her aunt pressures she gets mad and decides to move out.

While moving out, she falls in the street and is only able to save herself by sacrificing her suitcase.  After a night in the hospital she moves back in with her aunt.  But her prophecies seem to be gone.  Now she's becoming a matchmaker...

Can she reunite her aunt and the man she left behind in Paris?  Does she has a chance at love?  Maybe...
