Book Review: Coffeehouse Angel

Coffeehouse Angel
by Suzanne Selfors

Genre: Contemporary, Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult
Publication: first published July 2009
Format: ebook
Author:  Website, Facebook
Katrina works in her grandmother's coffee shop in a small town in Washington State, which isn't exactly the coolest job, given that it's an old-world Scandinavian coffee shop rather than the ultra hip Java Hut next door. One morning, when she gives a free cup of coffee and muffin to a homeless guy sleeping out behind the shop, this random act of kindness turns her life upside down. She soon learns that the homeless guy is actually a teenage guardian angel intent on returning the favor. 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?

Coffeehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors was recommended by my little sister. She never enjoyed anything with romance but she enjoyed this one. Later, I found out that my cousin love this book. I thought I should give it a try. 

Coffeehouse Angel is narrated by Katrina. Katrina is a girl who worked in her grandma’s coffee shop. She woke up every day, early morning to open the coffee shop before school. She was taking out the garbage when she spotted a homeless guy at the back of the coffee shop. She left him a cup of coffee and some chocolate covered coffee bean. Later, Malcolm or the homeless guy came to her school to look for her and he insisted on giving her a reward for her good deed. Katrina thought of herself as ordinary – someone who doesn’t have any talent. When her grandmother fell sick, Katrina has to think of something or she will lose the coffee house. It wasn’t easy, especially dealing with an angel who refused to leave her alone and her friendship with her best friend, Vincent which started to crumble.

The characters in the book are very likeable, especially Malcolm, the angel who wore kilt. I like Katrina and Malcolm's interaction. They are mostly funny! I definitely enjoy reading this. I'm glad that my sister and cousin recommend this book to me. I enjoy the touch of romance, humor and the Katrina’s adventure in search of her talent much more. Coffeehouse Angel is a cute, romantic, heart-warming and clean read with an ending that makes you squeal for its cuteness!
