This is an amazing book told in multiple voices with multiple events that all surround the main character.
I went into this story blind (picked it based only on the author's name) - I recommend you do the same.
This is a clean read (not sweet) that I would give 50 stars even though I have questions about (purposeful) plot holes and events.
I absolutely recommend this book!!!!
Edited: I FORGOT TO MENTION THE AMAZING PLAYLISTS ON THE MIX TAPES!!!! AWESOME :)
Veloura had a rough start to life, ending up alone at a young age. She does her best to keep a sunny disposition, even after meeting Thunder and moving in with him much too quickly.
Then she finds herself needing to disappear, without any preparation. Now, taking a job using someone else's identity is never a smart move, but worse is when that job means being the FACE of a well known company. On top of that, being a spokesperson is not as glamorous as it sounds. I felt for our heroine as she counted quarters and traveled alone, often not knowing what was in store for her next. I wanted to pull for her but there were times I wanted to shake her, too.
Thank goodness for her best friend, who does what she can, but Vee also became too much for Susie at times.
This is not written in a straight forward manner, so you do have to pay close attention to clues, clues that Vee notices but does not always give proper attention to. I bet you will also be surprised.
This review is my own opinion
It is one story that is interesting and definitely unique in it’s telling.
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
WOW! I was not sure where this book was heading and boy was I surprised. There is so many twists and drama, I was sucked in and read through the whole book in one sitting. The characters are all wonderful and the story line is fantastic!
Veloura or Vee as her friends call her, is in my opinion, sweetly naive and very young. She is twenty years old and is shacked up with a much older man who is referred to as, Thunder. The way Thunder treats Vee is so disgusting and she doesn’t see until it’s almost too late that he is a terrible person and he has no love for her.
Suzie had me skeptical about her intentions towards Vee. I’m thinking that maybe she was just jealous of Vee, and that is the reason she wanted to keep her far away from her husband Tommy. I do love that she helped Vee land a job as The woman America loves a latte for a coffee company.
When Veloura realizes her husband's intentions towards her and Suzie set her up with a new job that would take her away from their little town, she jumps at the opportunity. Coming home during an event for her job, she has a near death experience and determines who is actually out to hurt her, and it was the last person she would have expected.
The story reads in different characters perspectives, and I personally like this to see what each character is thinking or going through. The dramatic twist in the end had me reeling and I was shocked at who was really after Veloura. I would definitely recommend this book!!

The Woman America Loves a Latte by Holly Tierney-Bedord is a wonderful, intriguing story that pulled me in and held my attention from beginning to end. I have enjoyed exploring Ms. Tierney’s works, and have read most of them now- this story is definitely among my favourite reads of hers.
Veloura (Vee) hasn’t had things easy in life. She really needs a bit of luck on her side. In a case of mistaken identity, she ends up with her dream job- as the “face” for Caprice Cappuccino chain. It couldn’t have come at a better time- so with a guaranteed pay-check and a gas and food allowance, she sets off on her cross-country advertising campaign/adventure. But we soon find that trouble isn’t too far behind.
This is such a great story. The author has written it extremely well and was quite detail oriented in her story. There’s plenty of intrigue, some mystery, suspense, drama, and more. There is quite a lot happening in the story, and I found it to be a very quick read.
The characters were all fully developed and realistic- with their own individual, if not quirky personalities.
I wonder what Ms. Tierney-Bedord has in store for us next?
Thank-you, Ms. Tierney-Bedord.
