About the Book: Maya Davis already has many titles—Christian, barista, maid of honor (new), possible girlfriend (newer), aunt (newest)—and her life is about to become even more complicated. Just when she thought things couldn’t get any worse, her ex-boyfriend proposes to her roommate and best friend, Jen. It’s not long until their apartment becomes Wedding Central. As if that weren’t enough, Jen’s obnoxious mom moves in to help plan the wedding, and Maya’s genius brother and sister-in-law announce that they’re expecting. Then to top it off, there’s the whole matter of Jack—is it love? Who wouldn’t need a coffee break!
My Review: First off, let me say I’m not a fan of chick lit and I’m past the age of girlfriends getting married and the whole dating nightmare. With that said I must admit I thoroughly enjoyed this story. You get a little bit of everything with this story. You have the insecure Maya, you have the “perfect” (but sweet) girl living the almost perfect life, with Jen, you have the wicked mother with Ms. Mitchell and then the guys. Travis, Maya’s ex who’s dating Jen, Ethan the computer geek, co-worker and then there’s Jack, Maya’s longtime friend. I could write pages about Jack. I enjoyed not only the characters but the story, they come across as real people with real issues. I love how we see Maya search for God’s help in her daily life. I loved the sticky notes.
This book had a lot of great reminders for me. First it reminded me how grateful I am that my parents were supportive of my marriage and who I was marrying. It reminded me that God wants a daily relationship with His children. Maya demonstrates the struggles that we all face and how we can look to God’s Word for our guidance.
If you want something that is an easy read with fun characters that will make you laugh and cry that offers some good biblical principles about life then pick up this book.
If you don’t like books that are overtly Christian then you will want to take a pass.
