5.0 out of 5 stars My little Corner at The Corner Cafe! June 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I spent my time this weekend in a corner of my office absorbed in these wonderful tales that I felt had been written just for me. From Home Away From Home By Dani Greer to The Closing of The Corner Cafe by Morgan Mandel, I was transported from my office, landing smack dab inside The Corner cafe. I grabbed a tall cup of java and lived with the characters for an entire afternoon. Bravo to these brilliant writers. Everyone should grab a seat in their little corner of The Corner Cafe!

4.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone to enjoy... June 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The eighteen short stories in The Corner Cafe: A Tasty Collection of Short Stories (BBT Cafe Authors) offer a sampling of genres and writing styles, so there's something for everyone. In each story, the Corner Cafe provides the common thread. "You Can't Be Too Careful" by Bob Sanchez (a short-short tale of a man's obsession) made me laugh; "A Face in the Window" by Mary Montague Sikes (an unexpected turn in a mother's search for her lost child) tugged at my heart-strings and left me wanting more; the stunning plot twist in "One Last Run" by Helen Ginger was unexpected and gratifying; and "Home Away from Home," (a complaining grad student discovers what's really important) once again brought the petty annoyances of life into perspective. These were some of my favorites, but they all left me longing to hang out at the Corner Cafe, too.

This sweet little tome is filled with great tales of the human condition. Stories to make you smile, cry, sigh and enjoy. From the very short tale by Bob Sanchez about a man who can never be too prepared, a bittersweet tale by Shonell Bacon about a woman reclaiming herself from an abusive partner, to a story by S.B.Lerner about moving on from the one who never appreciated what he had, there is a story for every mood. I thought I would be mentioning a few standouts, I mean there are 18 tales - but each one was a stand out in its unique way. I recommend you grab yourself a big cup of coffee, slice of pie, and dive into the tales of the Corner Cafe! One of the best .99 I have spent on Kindle books to date.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love and Holsteins a Heartwarming Love Story June 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Corner Cafe is a tasty, treat-filled collection of short stories. "Love and Holsteins" by Bodie Parkhurst is a heartwarming slice of life for a farm wife and her relationships--to her husband and to the Holstein dairy cattle they raise.

A charming collection of well written vignettes. Many varieties of writing skills, bookended by Morgan Mandel's heartwarming story about the Corner Cafe.
A place many of us ventured into in our past; many savored the food and the service, but didn't really know the stories behind the counter. Ms. Mandel lets us peak into their world.
Wholesome and insightful.
A most enjoyable read.

Ninety-nine cents can barely buy a taco anymore, but The Corner Cafe collection of short stories is a great bargain - full of meat, sweets, and maybe a hint of jalapeno. The writers had fun with their theme and each story goes off on a different tangent. Yet we end up at the Corner Cafe savoring each word. Special props to Helen Ginger - her two stories were faves of mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Corner Cafe July 21, 2012

I really liked this book. The stories were all thoughtful ones that got you thinking about life after you read them. Some took place in The Corner Cafe and some only mention the Cafe. Good book to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Corner Cafe and story for everyone June 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a collection of stories in a variety of genres, written by different authors. As would be expected in this situation, I liked some of the stories a lot and didn't care for others. The only connection between the stories was that each had to include The Corner Cafe, but the cafe was different in each story. It might have been interesting to have used one Corner Cafe as a setting for all the stories to have some unity among the stories. However, with each author able to create their own Corner Cafe, every reader is likely to find at least one cafe and one story that appeals to them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for a free read...
...but I wouldn't pay 3 bucks for it. Most of the stories felt....unfinished. And the connection to the "corner cafe" theme felt contrived. Not my cup of tea.

We like short storys so we gave this book a try. It did not meet our expectations so we only read a few of the stories.
