Book review #13: Coffeehouse Angel

Coffeehouse AngelAuthor: Suzanne Selfors
Publish Date: August 10, 2010.
Publisher: Walker & Company

"When a random act of kindness involves Katrina with Malcolm, a handsome teenage guardian angel intent on fulfilling her greatest wish, fame and fortune seem like the most obvious requests. But after two botched wishes, Malcolm knows Katrina is hiding something from him. How can she tell him the truth, when her heart's desire has become Malcolm himself?"

My Cover Opinion:

Another one of these colorful covers; crazy blue. But I don't like it very much, the coffee cup idea is cute, but its not that interesting:/

My Character Opinion:

My Favorite; was either Malcolm or Vincent. Their both great guys! Vincent is Katrina's best friend, while Malcolm is the angel she found laying in the back alley of the coffee shop one morning. Sadly Malcolm isn't in the story as much as I'd hoped he'd be, but we do see more of Vincent and the way he keeps his promise to Katrina (to never drink Java Heaven coffee).

My Least Favorite; has to be Katrina's other best friend, Elizabeth. She has this huge crush on a guy throughout the story, never really making a move. But when she does, she just ends up feeling bad about herself and giving up. Keep your head up girl! He didn't deserve you anyways!:D

My Storyline Opinion:

The story overall was awesome, Katrina did something good for someone (giving Malcolm old pastries and a cup of coffee, when she found him), and that Malcolm was angel trying to reward her for this.
I really enjoyed Katrina's friendship with Vincent (enjoys swimming, and striving for a swimming scholarship). They've been friends ever since, but Katrina swears that she doesn't have more feelings for him. When Vincent begins to hangout with the daughter of the rival coffee house owner, she does feels a ting of jealousy. Possibly she has secret feelings for him, or she feels left out and misses her friend. But sadly Katrina always just blames it on him making it a promise to her, that he would never set foot next door, in Java Heaven.

Ending Opinion:

Very action filled;I loved the ending. First your sad, because Malcolm has to leave (since he accomplished his job(giving Katrina a reward for doing a good deed)). But then he comes back to the girl he truly loves, and gets to become human to stay with her.

Overall Opinion:

Another short and cute book! Takes a different spin on supernatural; not being scary or dark!:D I really liked it and I plan on purchasing Selfors Saving Juliet!(:
