Coffeehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors
Summary: Katrina works in her grandmother's struggling coffeehouse; one day she does a completely selfless good deed for Malcolm and he becomes determined to reward her with unintentional results.
I enjoyed Selfors' "Saving Juliet" so when I saw this on my library's shelf, I picked it up and devoured it in a few hours-I could not stop reading it!
Katrina was a fun protagonist; it was very easy to root for her-I desperately wanted her to succeed and in general I agreed with her assessments of the situation and other people (unlike in other books where I end up hating the main character and find her annoying). I liked her realism as when she talked about only having two friends, thinking about family, and planning her responses to difficult things.
I will admit this book is largely predictable (Will Katrina be able to earn enough money to pay off the bills? Is there a love interest for a happily ever after? What do you think?) but it was thoroughly enjoyable and there are some twists in the story.
Overall: 4.5/5 for a delightful story!
