German Reviews Rock!

Oh, I did that thing. I googled myself. But for fun I googled the German version of the book-- Die Espressologin. Which brought me to the Amazon page and lots of cute reviews. Yay, they like me! They really like me! Well, most anyway. :-) This review below was especially cute because she (or he?) tells you that you must have a latte and cookies while you read. I totally agree. In fact, I think they should market it that way. One price, you get your book, coffee, and cookies. And hey, let's throw in a big comfy soft chair to sit in with just the right light and ambience in the room and no noise, well, maybe a little light music, and a big warm fire just off to your right. Perhaps some warm cozy jammies and a big fluffy blanket too. Ok, how do we package that up and sell it? :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read! January 12, 2010 By Of Happy-end buecher - See all my reviews

The book tells the story of Jane (as a Barista Coffee Artist "), works in a small coffee shop with her best friend Em" Emily. The pair, however, have far-reaching plans, but work there for ever. Jane wants to go to a fashion school and studying law Emily.

The Freudinnen go through thick and thin and stand together as one man, especially if the bitch Melissa once again enters the coffee shop. Their friendship, however, is challenged by the love to the test ....

The book is like a latte just the foam and then the coffee - First Light and Fluffy is seductive and then spirited, to be composed in the end all to a perfect mix.

The coffee book makes reading fun and easy it is advisable with the wonderful concoction when one makes up reading. The thirst for coffee is guaranteed. ;-)

The book tells the espresso log "of a different kind of single-reunification. This is one not to sign or something similar but with shared coffee preferences, and that's very amusing to read. Just a pity that the story is just too short. -- )

Kristina Springer, the author writes in a fluid and relaxed style that is very hard to make the book even for a moment put on the hand. I would like to take this opportunity therefore to book an absolute read-warning risk of addiction, especially for coffee lovers among us and all the easy and loose, but also emotional stories like it.

So you prepare a delicious vanilla latte and put a few delicious cookies to you, and you can with a book in hand to try to understand quickly into the small coffee shop, Jane and Emily. ;-)

Interview with Rhonda Stapleton, author of STUPID CUPID

Wow-- it's my very last interview with a Debut 2009 author! Rhonda Stapleton is here to talk about her fab first book Stupid Cupid. I got to read Stupid Cupid in its ARC form and I totally loved it! Her main character, Felicity Walker, is so much fun and lucky for us, there will be two more books starring her-- Flirting with Disaster and Pucker Up.

About the book:

Felicity's no ordinary teen matchmaker...she's a cupid!

Felicity Walker believes in true love. That's why she applies for a gig at the matchmaking company Cupid's Hollow. But when Felicity gets the job, she learns that she isn't just a matchmaker...she's a cupid! (There's more than one of them, you know.)

Armed with a hot pink, tricked-out PDA infused with the latest in cupid magic (love arrows shot through email), Felicity works to meet her quota of successful matches. But when she bends the rules of cupidity by matching her best friend Maya with three different boys at once, disaster strikes. Felicity needs to come up with a plan to set it all right, pronto, before she gets fired?and before Maya ends up with her heart split in three.

Our Interview:

KRISTINA: What's your very favorite thing about your book (Certain chap? Scene? Cover?)

RHONDA: I love the part where Felicity runs into the guy's bathroom. hahaha I had so much fun writing that.
KRISTINA: Where do you do most of your writing?

RHONDA: I write all over the place--in my office, at the kitchen table, on the couch...anywhere I can plug my laptop in and go!
KRISTINA: What's the naughtiest thing you did in high school that you DIDN'T get caught doing (Fess up now!)

RHONDA: Oh lord. I was so lame in school...I can't think of anything naughty I did. I think I should do something now to make up for that. haha
KRISTINA: What did you do on the release day of Stupid Cupid?

RHONDA: I partied like a rock star! Okay, maybe not. But I hit the stores and treated myself to a super-luxurious dinner. :D
KRISTINA: What's your favorite coffee drink? (If you don't like coffee, WHY NOT?! Really, what do you like to drink then while you're writing?)

RHONDA: Caramel macchiato. Those are like crack to me.

KRISTINA: Yum! Thanks for stopping by Rhonda and good luck with your super cute book!
