Tremayne presents the reader with a novel that has all the ingredients of a thriller: suspense, intrigue, tension, and unexpected twists and turns. While this fictional work will appeal to readers of all ages, it clearly finds a home within young adult literature. As the story unfolds, the writer makes effective use of juxtaposition in traversing between the physical world and the world beyond. Tremayne expertly foreshadows the role of the Cardinal's sacred cape, as it is blessed at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in advance of battling the evil forces of the chair. While Harry promises to Clarisse that he will return to Manila, readers may wish to learn more about the fate of the starry-eyed young couple and the superstition that surrounds them. Without question, this work is capable of instilling fear into even the most seasoned devotee of paranormal thrillers.
Book review by Susan C. Morris-The US Review of Books
When a malicious chair's only desire is to prosper from the negative thoughts of doomed relationships—will Clarisse be willing to trade her mind for a premonition of love?
They don't have the safety of distance to rely upon—only five days to decide if they are made for each other before Harry leaves back home—or will the mysterious scarlet chair decide their fate?
She was unlucky in love, recently separated and desperately searching for the man of her dreams. For Clarisse, life became so lonely that she fell in love with his picture. For Harry, recently divorced— it carried risk and uncertainty?
In this heart-rending search for passion, he travels to the city of our affection (Manila) to meet Clarisse—a woman of immense beauty and problematic past. In this journey of new adult love, Harry leaves his western-centric norms behind. He is immersed in the city of affection—vibrant, alive, bustling and enjoying the pleasure of being. But will Clarisse have the courage to tell him everything—past secrets, fears, and inhibition. She has never dated a foreign man before, and how will this relationship play out?
The Girl in the Scarlet Chair is the first book in the City of Affection series—a new adult, clean romance with paranormal and supernatural elements by Janice Tremayne. The three-part series takes you on a heart-rending, supernatural and paranormal romantic experience.

For those bold enough to travel to the city of affection in search of everlasting happiness—difficult challenges await. Each book in the series will immerse you in a different relationship, their challenges and a unique storyline.
