Coffeehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors
Katrina works in her grandmothers coffee shop. While opening the shop one cold morning she sees a vagrant sleeping on the doorstep. She decides to deliver a cup of coffee, some pastries and some chocolate covered coffee beans to him.
Katrina discovers that her vagrant is not really a vagrant but an angel in between missions. He will not leave Katrina alone until he can reward her for her kindness.
The vagrant/angel named Malcolm gives her 3 chocolate covered coffee beans as a promise to grant her any wish she desires. Not believing him she gives one of her beans to a friend. When her friends wish comes true Katrina thinks it is just a coincidence. Malcolm of course realizes that Katrina didn't use the bean so he continues to hang around. Telling her he cannot leave until he repays her kindness to him.
In the midst of all of this Katrina and her grandmother are faced with having to close their coffee shop to make room for a bigger more modern coffee shop that has gone in next door to them. They are losing business quickly.
Katrina and Malcolm are slowly falling in love. Is there hope for an angel and a human to have a relationship?
I really enjoyed Coffeehouse Angel. It is a sweet CLEAN love story with a great ending!
