The First book in the Coffee Shop Series!
This coffee shop is going to kill me.
Sure, it's my dad's dream. If he hadn't died eight months ago, I wouldn't be here, a college drop out, trying not to drown in debt.
Nor would I be staring into the muddy eyes of a viking-sized man that's telling me everything I'm doing wrong—as if he knows so much about business in a small mountain town.
Except he does.
And when the biggest, most unexpected surprise of all falls in my lap, I'll have no choice but to ask for his help.
Time for some power lipstick.
This girl is drowning.
She might have eyes like glacier pools and hair so black it's glossy, but that doesn't mean she knows how to run a coffee shop. She's drowning in more than debt, interest, and credit card payments.
She'll never make it.
But I kind of want her to.
Because underneath that bright lipstick and those sun dresses is a woman that I have an uncomfortable feeling is about to rock. my. world.
This is a clean, contemporary romance with sizzle and spice—but no sex scenes. Guaranteed bantering and happily ever after.
Here's what others are saying!

That was amazing! I couldn’t put this book down—it’s that good! It’ll keep you on the edge of your seat, leave you satisfied but also excited that there will be more—aka another book! I can’t wait for the next book in this series to come out!
“This place needs to burn to the ground.” This is how Bethany’s story begins. She is struggling to keep her father’s dream alive even though he is no longer there. Owning a coffee shop was not her dream; it was his. She doesn’t even like coffee.
From the moment the first line is read, the reader is hooked. It’s obvious the coffee shop is in trouble, but why? Bethany is torn between keeping her father’s dream alive and pursuing her own dreams. Following her father’s dream would help her keep him with her, but she would forfeit the life she truly wants for herself. Pursuing her dream would mean letting the coffee shop go, leaving her feeling like she is losing her father all over again.
In walks Maverick, a businessman running from a past that haunts him and a future he doesn’t believe he deserves.
Then Lizbeth and Ellie show up at the coffee shop at 4:45am. Why have her half sisters, who she hardly knows, traveled so far on foot to find her?
Coffee Shop Girl is a story about love and loss, strength and perseverance. The detail Katie Cross uses in describing events gives the reader a vivid image that brings Bethany, Maverick, Lizbeth, and Ellie together, each running from something, unaware how the crossing of their paths will change their lives forever.
As with all her books, Katie Cross makes it easy to fall in love with the characters. Coffee Shop Girl is a beautifully written story. There will be tears and celebrations. Katie Cross leaves the reader wanting more. I can hardly wait for the next installment of the Coffee Shop Girl series.
