Review: Coffeehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors

Coffeehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors
Publisher: Walker & Company
Pub. Date: July 21, 2009
Age Range: Young Adult 288pp

From the author of Saving Juliet comes a romantic comedy that is good to the last drop.

When Katrina spots a homeless guy sleeping in the alley behind her grandmother’s coffee shop, she decides to leave him a cup of coffee, a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and some pastries to tide him over. Little does she know that this random act of kindness is about to turn her life upside down. Because this adorable vagrant, Malcolm, is really a guardian angel on a break between missions. And he won’t leave until he can reward Katrina’sselflessness by fulfilling her deepest desire. Now if only she could decide what that might be .
Who knew performing an act of good deed to help a homeless man could grant your heart’s desires…

Fortunately for Katrina, Malcolm is not what he seems. He’s a messenger on an important mission to deliver a message and he’s determined to reward Katrina for her selfless act.

Katrina is surrounded by her best friends Vincent and Elizabeth, who are quite talented and have their life after high school mapped out whereas Katrina doesn’t know exactly what she’s good at, so she’s content working at her Grandma Anna’s coffeeshop until things start to go awry.

After failed attempts of her first two wishes, Katrina’s life has been turned upside down. She’s dealing with crisis after crisis. Fortunately she has one more chance to get her life back on track.

When Katrina finally realizes that Malcolm is a real life angel, she also finds herself falling for him…

Will she have everything she’s ever dreamed of or will she be left to pick up the crumbling pieces of her life….

Coffeehouse was well written and kept my attention throughout. I love the plot and Selfors created a realistic world where the characters are relatable dealing with daily decisions about life choices and living life to the fullest. The secondary characters are some of my favorites especially Lars Larsen, who brought a lot of humor to this book. Coffeehouse Angel is a light and humorous read that will have readers laughing and rooting for Katrina every step of the way.

This is a great read and I had a hard time putting this book down. I will definitely be reading more of Selfors’s books.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
