received the ARC copy of Natalie Tan s Book of Luck and Fortune, I was beyond excited to read it This novel tells the story of a prodigal daughter s redemption as she finds her way back to her community after the sudden death of her beloved, yet estranged mother We follow Natalie Tan s journey to Chinatown San Francisco and we find that the community is struggling to survive as gentrification encroaches Encouraged by her late mother s last letter, Natalie tries to revive the Chinatown community by reopening her grandmother s Chinese restaurant and discovers many secrets of her family along the way I quite enjoyed the mouth watering description of the cooking process and ample food porn scenes throughout the novel I would have eaten this up if this book was just filled with those That said, I found the rest of the story much less enjoyable Our heroine is a Disney Princess culinary prodigy with a touch of grandiose delusion who can t seem to make up her mind Birds seem to follow her everywhere She can reproduce her grandmother s most complex recipe perfectly in just one try Everyone around her constantly tells her that she s the only one who can save the community and she truly believes it, but as soon as trouble arises, she s ready to turn around and give up She blames her tendency to flee among other issues on her father s absence and gladly reminds you that several times throughout the story Natalie the author also has a penchant for dispensing similes that are out of this world Some of them are novel and creative, but most of them are pretty absurd, like attempting to squeeze a fistful of water Unfortunately, they are also everywhere, like fruit flies in the heat of summer There are other pretty jarring issues with the overall story, but
