I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
Confessions From A Coffee Shop is about a girl named Cori who lives in Boston with her girlfriend, Kat, and works 3 jobs. Kat has a bit of a spending habit and thus they’re in debt. She also has to deal with her melodramatic mother and she needs to finish her novel.
I like the main character, even if I don’t understand the way she thinks sometimes. Her mom is a bit difficult, but I like her aunt. I spent most of the book being annoyed at her girlfriend, Kat, but I liked her a bit more by the end. I think Harold was a fun character just because of how clueless he is. Sam and Lucy are nice as well. I sort of thought Cori was going to try to cheat on Kat with Sam, but I’m happy that I was wrong. My least favorite character in the book was Kat’s dad, Phineas Finn. He’s a pompous jerk. He just informed Cori that she was working for him now. Both of Kat’s parents were boring and frigid, though I think that was the point.
I loved Cori’s “inner dialogue.” I think that part was really well done. She’s pretty introverted most of the time, unless alcohol is involved. I just wish she wouldn’t have blamed herself for Kat’s spending habits. It really wasn’t her fault. If I was her, I would’ve cancelled the credit card account. I like that she’s vegetarian too. I might be a bit biased though since I’m also a vegetarian. I really liked Cori’s relationship with her father. I like that her and her mom do stuff together too, but books don’t seem to show nice father/daughter relationships.
I figured out one part of the story before it was revealed, but that didn’t make me like it any less. The book was a light read and I read most of it in one night. The ending was cute. I’d recommend this to anyone who likes romance.
