Latte Daze: A Maya Davis Novel

Latte Daze. Erynn Mangum. Navpress. July 2010. 
Paperback. 304 pages.

Maya's life seems to be just fine the way it is. She's an employee at Coffee Bean along with her boyfriend, Jack. She's roommates with her best friend, Jen, who happens to be dating her ex-boyfriend, Travis. She's adjusted to the awkward situation. Her Sunday evenings are always spent with her parents, brother and sister-in-law. She regularly goes to church and weekly bible study group. Yup, everything is great, but soon things begin to change and get a little complicating.

Jen and Travis become engaged and their apartment becomes wedding central. Jack takes a job at the zoo so she doesn't see him as much anymore and her brother and sister-in-law announce that they're having a baby. As if that wasn't enough, Jen's mom decides to move in for the remainder of her engagement to "help out" with the planning. Maya feels stuck in the same routine while everyone else's life is changing.

This is the second book in the Maya Davis series by Erynn Mangum. I haven't read book one and I thought I might have been confused with the storyline, but that wasn't the case at all. I thought it was just fine as a stand alone story. I like the fact that the author incorporated the characters relationship with God into the story and there are so many positive messages for the readers. Each of the characters were very believable and situations that they were in are relatable to some degree. Even though this is geared toward young adults, I think any age would enjoy this novel. This was a very enjoyable read and I highly recommend it.

My Rating: 4/5 stars
