Katrina works daily in her grandmother's traditional Scandinavian coffeehouse, has two best friends, and knows her place in the social pyramid at her high school.
Of course, whenever someone thinks they understand life, things are always bound to change.
So is the case when the new-fangled Java Heaven, with its fancy lattes and organic coffee beans, begins putting her grandmother's coffeehouse out of business.
When Katrina finds a stranger sleeping in the alley outside of the coffeehouse one morning, she is scared. But she also feels badly for the man. Katrina quietly leaves a cup of coffee and some chocolate-covered coffee beans next to him and hurriedly runs back into the coffee shop.
Little did Katrina know that this one moment would change her life.
The fact that the mystery man was an angel who wants to repay her by fulfilling her deepest desire would make one think that Katrina's life would become a whirlwind of perfection. No problems, right? End of story.
That's what one would think.
But Katrina doesn't know what she wants.
You can't just throw out random wishes just because they're what everyone else would wish for. And there's bound to be problems if the wish doesn't go as planned. Or is somehow intercepted by someone else. Can life really ever go back to being what it used to be? Can you make life not change? And if you could, what new experiences and people would you never know?
And if you are always living life wanting something else, are you really living?
Take a sip of COFFEEHOUSE ANGEL to find out what Katrina wishes for. It's a light, heavenly read.
