Coffeehouse Angel

Title: Coffeehouse Angel
Author: Suzanne Selfors
Published: 2009
Genre: ChickLit, Contemporary, Supernatural (Angels)
Rating: 4 out of 5

Katrina is an orphaned high school student who helps her grandmother everyday to run their coffeehouse, which is their sole source of income and livelihood. But ever since the opening of a much new and popular cafe next door, business hasn't been great. On top of this, Katrina showed kindness to a hobo (yeah, I wanted to use that, haha) by giving him some food and coffee, and now the young man, who she discovers is names Malcolm and is a Messenger, won't leave her alone, until he can grant Katrina her deepest desire.

Coffeehouse Angel was very sweet (no, I didn't lick the cover, thankyouverymuch). I loved everything about it, including the setting, which was a small town influenced by Norwegian culture and the characters, who were predictable, yes, but still very likable. Katrina was a strong and independent girl, who respected her elders (I admire that). There was also the classic 'guy friend' who oh-so-obviously Katrina doesn't like (*wink, wink*), an 'artsy and loud' girl BFF, a 'loving and caring' granny and the 'popular and perfect blonde' who also happens to be the evil enemy cafe owner's daughter! Mr. Malcolm, the Messenger, is also a sweet character who is very odd, quirky and lovable.

I can't give too much away, or I'll spoil the story (it's all very connected from the first two/three chapters) but Coffeehouse Angel is like a ray of sun after a few days of rain; i.e: not getting enough good happy-ending books? This one will be the perfect one to make you smile. Yes, it's a light read, nothing too serious, but it's a very positive and moral story about lurve, fwandship, coffee and.... entrepreneurial skills without any cussing and other teenage 'stuff''.
