Cool Beans is a very light hearted book. I really enjoy fictional books like this. They are the kind of books I like to read when I need a break from studying. What I mostly liked about the book is that it did have a life message. Sometimes in our lives we have something to tell a good friend, but we try to spare them from getting hurt so we don't tell them. This is what happened to the main character Maya. She worked in a Coffee House and she shared an apartment with her good friend. As you read on you find out how that secret Maya saved from her friend from was tearing her apart. That secret affected Maya's personal relationship with God, her family and her roommate. I don't want to give the story away. I can only recommend that you read it and discover how holding secrets can eat you up inside, and the only way you can find peace is to let it out. I really enjoyed the book and hope you do also.

Review 2 for Cool Beans
Wonderful Christmas present.....to me anyway!
Date:May 12, 2011
Okay I'm one of those weird 13 almost 14 year olds who get books on their b-days and read all day and has not found one use for her TV. So as ya can guess I got this WHOLE series for Christmas. I read all of them in three days and have to say this: you'll laugh till ya cry,cry till ya laugh and love God more than ya did before. And you'll be AMAZED when u realize w/ my long-lost sister Maya Davis that God loves you and that's all that matters.....
Cool Beans is vintage Erynn Mangum! If you loved the Lauren Holbrook series, you will be entranced with Maya Davis ~ expert barista, faithful friend and devoted dog owner. With witty and energetic prose, Erynn taps into the mind of a twenty something searching for her place in life while contending with an overachieving big brother, a former flame with an exceedingly short memory and Calvin, her Pilates obsessed beagle.Peppered with references to Jane Austen and contemporary chick flicks, Cool Beans holds magnetic appeal for all ages and guarantees you will laugh, cry and sigh with heartfelt delight.Blending brilliant characterisation with an infusion of spiritual truth and a shot of romance, Cool Beans is an experience to savour and will leave you with a little caffeine buzz all of its own!
