If you like chicklit, you’ll want to read LATTE DAZE. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series, Double Shot.
Maya Davis is still working away at Cool Beans, knowing that with each day, she gets closer to when her now boyfriend Jack leaves to work at the zoo. And on top of all this, her roommate Jen is getting married to Travis, which means that not only will Maya have to deal with Jen's crazy mother, but also with all the members of Travis' family that she once knew when Maya herself was known as the "girlfriend" to Travis. And things just couldn't get more complicated, but when Maya Davis, coffee, and the heart are involved, it's bound to only get worse as things go.
Mangum continues her winning formula that worked so well with the LAUREN HOLBROOK novels (MISS MATCH, REMATCH, and MATCHPOINT) and really begins to transcend some of her earlier writing. Her settings and descriptions are better than ever here. And the humor is top notch. I had to stop reading for a moment as everyone stared at me laughing many times throughout. I always know that it's going to be a fun ride with any of Mangum's books. Her characters here seem to be somewhat stronger than in LAUREN HOLBROOK, and Maya almost seems more fun to follow.
The only thing that I can say as a slight caveat to everything mentioned above is the fact that I could see the events at the end of the book coming from the beginning.Read more ›
The characters were so real and sweet. I couldn't help but think of the movie Bride Wars while reading this book and pictured Anne Hathaway as Maya. (Although, Maya and Jen were in no way fighting in this story). Maya and Jen have such a great friendship. They just seem so adorable. I completely fell in love with Maya's dog, Calvin. The way her parents dote on him reminds me of my dog!
Most of my Christian reading seems to be historical books, but it's so refreshing to read Christian chick lit. There's great messages throughout the book, too, so it's not just thoughtless reading! I loved how Maya stands up for her beliefs without being pushy. I think there's great lessons on how to deal with those who don't share Christian beliefs. I feel she was respectful of the other person, and gained respect in the process. And she kept a Christian attitude about Jen's mother throughout the story.
The description says the book is for teens, but the characters are in their 20s, so I think that adults would enjoy this book, too.
I haven't read the first book in this series, Cool Beans, but I do plan on reading it now. I didn't feel like I was missing out on any part of the story. I was filled in with important information from the first one as far as I could tell. I can't wait to see what else happens with Maya and Jack, and Jen and Travis in Double Shot, which comes out in October.
