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.

Enter a homeless man sleeping in the alley behind the coffee shop. Despite the weight on Katrina's shoulders, she performs a kindness to the young man and sets in motion a string of events that not only helps her regain control of events affecting her but also sheds light on questions about her past that she had hardly dared ask. In the process she finds a path to the future and experiences a first love.
Technically, the book is a good one. In Katrina the author has created a likeable, realistic heroine. The hero brings a paranormal element (hinted at in the book's title) that is thankfully nuanced and not an overplayed alpha-male-in-training while supporting characters are well-drawn and provide a good foundation for the main action. Even the villians are more than one-note plot devices and enable Katrina to grow and come to terms with events outside her control (and we don't feel a bit guilty about the schadenfreude we feel at their downfall). Finally, the romantic portions of the story are age-appropriate and feel natural to the story.
Coffeehouse Angel is recommended for anyone weary of the dark, overwrought YA romantic titles of late.
This was my first time reading Suzanne Selfors and she's really good! I'm so glad that I found a new author whose work I can now dream about. What I really loved about Coffeehouse Angel was the whole Nordic theme going on. The small town of Nordby is a pretty sweet place to live, if you like architectural folklore in your streets. There are windmills, bronze figurines, Swiss Cuckoo clocks and other fairy tale additions and what a better place for Anna's Old World Scandinavian Coffeehouse than here in all the mish mash. I would have loved to visit the place since the author made it so picturesque. Anna is the grandmother of Katrina, the selfless heroine that is a pleasure to read about. This proves that not all fictional teenagers have to be careless and selfish and inexperienced in the way of life, Katrina is a hard worker who helps out in the coffeehouse that her family has owned and pretty much keeps the energy of the whole place humming with positive vibes. When she encounters a handsome stranger and gives him some coffee and sweets since he looks like he can use them more than people who have everything they need, he wants to reward her.
That's when the fun starts, Katrina gets a visit from him at her school auditorium and gets completely embarrassed as the stranger won't take no for an answer until he feels satisfied that he has rewarded her properly. He's no mere male, something special about him and his abilities makes Katrina take notice. Pretty soon things turn serious as she starts to develop feelings but with her grandmother's business being under fire from the coffee place that opened up next door she suddenly has a lot on her plate, and everything is starting to spin out of control. Growing up, trying to figure out where your heart is pulling you and trying to find out what career you want to follow is enough stress, not mentioning the funny bits added, the book will have many people laughing, I sure did.
I adored the clever with and humor in the book, I was laughing out loud a lot and it was really charming, full of hot chocolate, coffee (this book made me crave it all the time) and I really liked the cuisine of Vikings that this book was full of. I highly recommend this for anyone who likes light but still rich and colorful stories.
I liked this book for all the right reasons, it is light, fluffy, sticky-sweet, and has just enough substance to be satisfying.
Written for teens, it pegs that market very well, and while not being hardcore "chick-lit", it does a great job of soaking it all in and courting to that style of readers.
But I am a guy! What would I be doing reading a book like this?! Well, sometimes I dont like to read all about swords, magic, spies, intrigue, and business self-help stuff. Sometime we just want something that is nice, happy, easy to read...kind of like that cinnamon roll that you know you shouldnt eat but cant help it anyway.
Coffeehouse Angel is the perfect empty-calorie book, one that is well written, easy to follow, and hits all the right notes. Its a guilty pleasure of mine...what can I say? I liked it, and am sure that many more people will too.
It has a nice plot, characters that you can imagine (Katrina makes me picture that blone girl that lives in the same building as Peter Parker in the Spider-Man movies) and a nice conclusion that makes sense, that fits perfectly, and that can be seen a mile away. But thats what makes this book a good read. You know whats going to happen, but getting there is the fun part.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to hide the copy from my wife, she is sure to see it and then want to talk about our feelings.... :)
Katrina was very real for me. I understand trying to find your talent, your "thing", and seeing everyone else around you find it so easily. I also loved Katrina and Vincent's friendship. It explored some really tough issues that guy and girl friends have to face that most authors would try to overcome by making the two characters fall in love. But Selfors really thought about the trials and triumphs of a guy-girl friendship.
And Malcolm. How could you not love him? He was funny (I LOVED that he wore a kilt, and that everyone called it a skirt) and caring, and human. Even an angel has flaws and Malcom's were so very human and I loved that. I also appreciated that the novel wasn't based around Katrina's love life. There was real depth to this novel. There were plot twists that I absolutely didn't see coming but made the story so much more enjoyable!
If I liked coffee, this would be that comforting cup I had every morning when I woke up. This novel is a perfect feel-good story that I'm definitely going to re-read on a snowy evening curled up with a blanket. This novel was written and told beautifully and it makes me want to find an angel of my own.
Coffeehouse Angel was a pretty good read, but didn't make it to my favorite's list. Something really bugged me about this novel, and I can't really figure out what it was. It took me a little while to get into it, but by the end I was reading through it pretty fast and when the last chapter came, I wanted to know more.
Even though Katrina was the main character, she wasn't my favorite. She just didn't feel very developed as a character to me. I liked her family and friends, though. I really liked how Elizabeth was unique and seemed to dress kind of funky and was artistic.
Mr. Darling made me really mad! He frustrated me so bad with all the things he did. He was just so... evil! Makes me mad just thinking about him again. He seemed so heartless. His daughter wasn't as bad as Katrina thought, though.
The writing itself was pretty good. It really makes me want to read more from Selfors.
I love the fictional small town she created, based off the small town of Poulsobo, Washington. It really has me interested in Scandinavian customs. She has a pretty good bit of Scandinavian customs in the book, and you can tell she put a lot of research into it.
Overall, it was a pretty fast, cute, coming of age read. I really liked the cover, too. I love the heart at the top of the coffee. And boy do I love coffee in general!
