Latte Daze by Erynn Mangum **Book Review

Latte Daze: A Maya Davis Novel (Maya Davis Series)Life is full of changes. Unfortunately for Maya Davis, most of those changes seem to be happening all at once. Her roommate becomes engaged to her ex-boyfriend, her brother and sister-in-law announce that they are pregnant, and to top it all off, her relationship with her new boyfriend Jack introduces a whole new realm of change into her life.

This book was really cute. Erynn Mangum writes the way I think. Some of the thoughts running through the character's mind mirrored my own thoughts, even down to the corny jokes and movie references. It was a delightful summer read. Nothing too serious or heavy. Great for teens and adults alike.

Published by the folks at NavPress - known for their discipleship material, you can definitely see the Christian perspective throughout the book. The main character, Maya, although not perfect in her faith, does spend daily time reading her Bible and attends church and Bible study. There is a good Christian message to it without it being overly preachy.

This is the second book centered around the character of Maya Davis. The first book, Cool Beans involves the beginning of the relationship between Maya's best friend Jen and Maya's ex-boyfriend, Travis. Even though I have not read Cool Beans, I was able to follow the story and stay engaged with the characters. You can definitely read Latte Daze first and not feel lost. I look forward to going back and reading the first book in this series to get more back story on this quirky character.

The opinions I have expressed are my own.
