Latte Daze by Erynn Mangum (Review)



Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: NavPress (July 1, 2010)
ISBN-13: 978-1600067129

About the book:

Maya Davis already has many titles—Christian, barista, maid of honor (new), possible girlfriend (newer), aunt (newest)—and her life is about to become even more complicated. Just when she thought things couldn’t get any worse, her ex-boyfriend proposes to her roommate and best friend, Jen. It’s not long until their apartment becomes Wedding Central. As if that weren’t enough, Jen’s obnoxious mom moves in to help plan the wedding, and Maya’s genius brother and sister-in-law announce that they're expecting. Then to top it off, there's the whole matter of Jack—is it love? Who wouldn't need a coffee break!

My Review:
I loved this book. It is the second in the Maya Davis series. I recommend reading them in order as comments will make more sense in the book plus the first book is good also. This is a great Christian chick lit book. This book will mostly appeal to young adults but other ages will like it too. It held my attention from the beginning and I did not want to put it down. It is definitely Christian. Maya reads her bible before she goes to bed and often she expresses her thoughts. Her roommate and fiance, and her boyfriend are all Christians. The book is not overdone or preachy. It is natural. The characters and plot are unique, interesting, and believable. This author is known for the humor in her books and there were plenty of lol moments in this book. I love how the characters and relationships evolve in this book and I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Thankfully I only have to wait until October. This is going on my keeper shelf next to all of this author's other books and on my favorites list for the year. Highly Recommended. :)
