When Katrina spots a homeless guy sleeping in the alley behind her grandmother's coffee shop, she leaves him a cup of coffee, a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and some pastries to tide him over, never expecting this random act of kindness to turn her life upside down. The adorable vagrant, Malcolm, is actually a guardian angel on a break between missions, and now he won't leave until he can reward Katrina's selflessness by fulfilling her deepest desire. Fame and fortune seem like the obvious requests, but after two botched wishes, Malcolm knows Katrina is hiding something from him. But how can she tell him the truth, when her heart's desire has become Malcolm himself?Wow, what can I say about this book, I never expected it to be that good. I absolutely loved this book. It was fun and had a little bit of romance, which was really cool. I enjoyed every part of this novel. I guess I loved it so much because it was something different, it was unique. The whole story was, the setting, the plot, everything was just different.
Suzanne Selfors did an excellent job in writing this book, she kept me intrigued the whole time. It kept me flipping pages for ages! All the chapters would sound as a cliff-hanger, but hey, there's more to read!
I guess my favorite character was Katrina, no surprise. I really liked how she was sometimes a bit random, and she was that down-to-earth-girl, I adore her so much! She's also a very sweet person, she has feelings about people and she cares about friends, and family, especially family. Vincent, Katrina's best friend was a fun character too. They did struggle with their relationship as best friends because of this girl called Heidi, who was in between Katrina and Vincent. But, I did like the personality of Malcolm more than Vincent's, he was nice to Katrina.
The whole idea of the story was fabulous. I enjoyed it a lot. A lot of things happened but Katrina over came those things. I also loved how I was kind of like Katrina, it was easy for me to relate to her. I could connect with her really easily.
Overall, Coffeehouse Angel is a cute read. I recommend this to everyone out there, I promise you'll love it!
