Coffeehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors

Released: August 21, 2009
Publisher: Walker & Company
Pages: 276
Overall: 5 stars
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’s selflessness
by fulfilling her deepest desire. Now if only she could decide what that might be . . .

I simply could not put this book down. It was such a cute and fun read. The originality of the plot was refreshing. What would you do if someone wanted to grant you what you most desire?

Katrina is a character I can see myself relating too. She has a great sense of humor, and some of her comments had me laughing throughout the book. Overall, she a down-to-earth kind of girl. I loved her “Closet of Failure” where all the random things she started but never finished was stuffed into a closet.

I actually liked reading about the relationship between Katrina and Vincent, her best friend more than about Katrina and Malcolm. I like Malcolm’s character and there was more to him than I thought. But it was nice to read about friends that loved each other and would do anything for one another, but not end up falling in love by the end of the book.

Coffeehouse Angel was very enjoyable and one of the cutest books I’ve read. I recommend it to those who are looking for a good laugh.

Great review! Katrina was so random, I loved her. I'm with you, her relationship with Vincet peeked my intrest more than it did with Malcolm (though I still loved him.) I need to check out Julia's other book now.
