Blog Tour Review feat Giveaway: The Fortune Cafe by three AmazingAuthors!

                           Fortune Cafe Tour

Fortune Cafe                                             
The Fortune Café
a novel in three parts
 MIS-FORTUNE: Emma, a waitress at The Fortune Café will do anything to avoid opening a fortune cookie. Each fortune is rumored to somehow magically come true. Being a girl grounded in reality, she doesn’t have time for that kind of nonsense. But when trying to prevent a food fight at the café, Emma accidently cracks open a fortune cookie: “Look around, love is trying to catch you.” If there is one thing that Harrison, her former best friend in high school is good at, it’s catching her unaware.

   LOVE, NOT LUCK: Lucy has always been lucky . . . until her parents meet her fiancé’s parents at a disastrous lunch at The Fortune Café, and she breaks her lucky jade necklace. Even worse, her fortune cookie reveals that “True love is for the brave, not the lucky.” How is she supposed to read that? She’s always considered it lucky how she met her 
fiancé. But after breaking her necklace, Lucy’s luck takes a dive. And when her fiancé dumps her, the only person she 
can turn to is Carter, the unluckiest guy she knows.

  TAKEOUT: Stella is content in her new life of taking over her mom’s jewelry shop. No more
boyfriend to worry about, and as long as she stays busy, she doesn’t have to dwell on her non-existent love life. When Evan comes into the shop with his young daughter, Stella is charmed. But she is reluctant to complicate her straightforward life, so when she reads her fortune after ordering takeout from The Fortune Café, she completely ignores it. After all, how can a fortune as vague as “Do the thing you fear and love is certain,” apply to her?

4 lucky stars
Could this book be any more adorable and not in a "look how cute that puppy is" kinda way. The Fortune Cafe consists of three mini love stories all told from the povs from 
three different leading ladies who are connected through the 
Fortune Cafe itself. Apparently at this cafe, the first fortune cookie you get will always come true. Not just sometimes but ALWAYS

All three stories are very different yet beautiful all the same. My favorite story was Mis-Fortune. I felt like I related most to Emma. Even though I don't draw dragons, I still prefer to keep to myself a bunch. Plus I've worked at a restaurant before! Unlike Emma, I've never had anything thrown at me. Harrison is the love interest...sigh... I think I love him. 

Love, Not Luck follows Lucy. I felt so bad for this girl! Her fiancé was such a jerk, I don't know how she couldn't ever see it before. It may have a thing or two to do with her lucky necklace that may not be so lucky anymore. Carter is a cutie and I don't think readers will have any trouble falling in love with him. 

Takeout and the selfless Stella. She has a sick mother and 
gave up her college life to help take care of her. I love how 
she owns a jewelry shop; the drama that unfolds in this cute little story is quite endearing. I liked her loved interest Evan a bunch. 

Overall this is a nice clean read. It's great to see three different authors come together and write three different stories to form a novel. Brilliant! All three women have gained one new fan.
