My Review ( 4 stars ) –
First off let me tell you how much I adore this cover. It’s like the perfect mixture of geek meets chic. I Simply adore it! Now on to Feng Shui + Charlotte Nightingale…
Feng Shui + Charlotte Nightingale is down-right hilarious and dazzling to boot! I simply loved the characters, who were captivating and definitely charismatic.
The plot itself is engaging and light-hearted. I found it to be an all-around delightful read and I so cannot wait to read more by Ms. Ferderbar!
Charlotte Nightingale has the worst luck in the world. Her cluttered apartment is the poster child for *shar chi* – poison luck in the realm of feng shui. Her boyfriend s a jerk, her job sucks, she s broke and her own family seems to hate her. Every day is a bad hair day. Kwan, a handsome Chinese food delivery man and aspiring feng shui practitioner, takes pity on Charlotte. While Charlotte searches for the money to pay for the Emperors cashew chicken Kwan has delivered, he surreptitiously begins to move things around in Charlotte s apartment in accordance with the ancient art of placement – hoping to improve her life.
Charlotte’s luck subsequently appears to change in a big way. It goes from bad to worse – or so it seems. Charlotte finds a photo of her boyfriend with another woman, her car dies, she is fired from her job, the plumbing in her apartment explodes, and making matters worse, Charlotte s perfect, perky, designer-obsessed, blonde sister is about to marry a square-jawed, richer-than-god, insanely handsome plastic surgeon from Beverly Hills and the entire family loves nothing more than to rub Charlotte*s nose in it. Is it bad luck that sends Charlotte careening through calamity after calamity, or is it merely a matter of perspective?
