Latte Daze {Book Review}

You can only fake being nice for so long. Every woman has her limits, right? In Latte Daze, the likable Maya Davis gets firmly introduced to her limits and has to figure out if she can push them any farther than they are.

It’s not unreasonable to have issues. I mean, who could deal with the guy everyone assumed you were going to marry popping the question to your roommate? Or your new boyfriend suddenly announce that he wants to work at a zoo. Can’t a girl get a break?

Apparently not. Maya finds herself in the middle of a maelstrom of craziness when her roommate’s perpetually grumpy mother, Mrs. Mitchell moves in with the two women. When it comes to wedding planning, each of them has a different tactic. Jen tries to be passive when it comes to her Mrs. Mitchell’s demands. Maya prefers the duck-and-cover method. Neither one works very well when the “weekend trip” turns into months of an unwanted guest.

Maya turns to her lists in the middle of the chaos. Reasons to Trust God. In almost every chapter, she comes up with more reasons to be grateful. They aren’t exactly mirror images of Ann Voskamp’s lists, but they come across real, fresh, and incredibly honest. Her growing relationship with Jack isn’t picture perfect, another refreshing quality of the book.

Once again, Erynn Mangum pulls off a fun and engaging read. If you liked Cool Beans, you’ll love the next installment.
