Coffeehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors

When Katrina spots a homeless guy sleeping in the alley behind her grandmother's coffee shop, she leaves him a cup of coffee, a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and some pastries to tide him over, never expecting this random act of kindness to turn her life upside down. The adorable vagrant, Malcolm, is actually a guardian angel on a break between missions, and now he won't leave until he can reward Katrina's selflessness by fulfilling her deepest desire. 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 is a novel that sucks you in immediately. It gets right to the point, and I love that. The writing moves the novel along quickly, making it really easy to comprehend.

The angel incorporation is not new, but definitely original and it's not like any other book I've read about angels.

The characters in this novel are phenomenal. It's almost impossible not to love Katrina, the main character. She's calm under pressure(most of the time), easily likable and very relatable. She's probably one of my favorite characters out of all the books I've read. The relationships Katrina has with the people around her are very special and different. It's fun to read about them as well and interesting to see how the different characters interact.

I loved the ending. It was sweet and happy. In some books, happy endings make the book disappointing or unfulfilled, but in COFFEEHOUSE ANGEL, it was perfect, because I wanted everyone to be happy after all the complications they've been through.

COFFEEHOUSE ANGEL is hilarious, happy, sad and satisfying all at the same time. The story is enticing. You wont want to put it down.
