The Story:

From the author of Saving Juliet comes a romantic comedy that is good to the last drop. When Katrina spots a homeless guy sleeping in the alley behind her grandmother’s coffee shop, she decides to leave him a cup of coffee, a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and some pastries to tide him over. Little does she know that this random act of kindness is about to turn her life upside down.  Because this adorable vagrant, Malcolm, is really a guardian angel on a break between missions. And he won’t leave until he can reward Katrina’s selflessness by fulfilling her deepest desire. Now if only she could decide what that might be . . .

My Review

I read Coffeehouse Angel about 6 years ago and from what I remember it was a light, heartwarming read. If you have a book challenge and need something quick to read Coffeehouse Angel is a good option. With that said, 
I would love to have rated higher but it just did not hit the proverbial spot for me. 

Opening Line:

The first time I saw him, he was lying in the alley behind my grandmother's coffeehouse.


The plot of 
Coffeehouse Angel was not the least bit explosive. Well, at least not explosive enough for me. Katrina tries to figure who she is and what she desire from life -- she matures throughout the book from the shadow of her friends to her own person. Threatened to be closed, Katrina worked 24/7 at her grandmother's old world coffeehouse as it was bowing under the weight of competition against fancy, eco-friendly Java Heaven next door.
A miracle in the form of a "homeless" man walks through the coffeehouse. From the moment Katrina finds Malcolm sleeping behind her grandmother's coffeehouse her life changes in ways she could never have imagined.

Character Breakdown:

Katrina - Katrina is a typical teenage girl. She is likable character dealing with typical teen issues while maintaining a strong sense of what is right.

Malcolm - If two words could sum up Malcolm they are: kind and mysterious. He has an unbelievable secret Katrina has a hard time coming to terms with.
