Of Literature and Lattes

We rated this book:


Alyssa had a job at a start-up that was recently shut down for possible illegal activity. Without a job, she has no other option than to return to her hometown, Winsome, Illinois, which is the last thing she wants to do.

Jeremy needs a fresh start. He needs a new job and a chance to be near his daughter so he can be a good father. He takes over a coffee shop in Winsome with dreams of a bright new life ahead of him.

This book sounded cozy and delightful but it didn’t deliver. The story itself is good, but the narrative style is distracting and confusing. It’s hard to get your bearings starting right from chapter one. The narrative kind of flits around from character to character without warning. I found myself frustrated often, not realizing that the narrative had shifted perspective again until the character said something that didn’t make sense. Then I’d go back to figure out which character had taken over. As I result, I was constantly knocked out of the story and never found myself really immersed in it or connected to any of the characters. If that kind of writing is your style, you’ll be rewarded with a cute story. If not, it may be a frustrating read for you too.
