Whole Latte Love (Great River Romance) by Kari Trumbo

About the book:

Addi Merrick is a matchmaker with no match.
Her past is riddled with friends who married and left her behind. She’s stuck at a job she doesn’t love with a boss who can’t stand her to put herself through college, but there’s a reason God wants her at the right place, at the right time.

Drew Tanner was left at the altar and doesn’t believe in love.
It’s been a year since the woman of his dreams vanished into thin air on his wedding day. Since then, he’s avoided women like her, certain all quiet women were hiding something. Seeing Addi is like watching his past, and he wants no part of it. 

When a dating site matches them, not only as a possible match but a perfect match, they must choose to either risk the pain of rejection or the beauty of a love match. 

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed my time with these sweet characters. Author Kari Trumbo invites the reader right into the heart of Addie and Drew and I felt like I was an unwritten best friend character, privy to the secret thoughts, and wishing I could really sit down and have a heart to heart. I was thrilled when Liberty was introduced to the story and did just that. She seemed to take the very words that I wanted to say, right when they needed to be said.

Addie struggles with making ends meet and with feelings of not being good enough. She feels like she is aways looked over, invisible. But as her friend Liberty gently reminders her, that God made each of us for a specific purpose, and that we just need to wait on Him.

If you are looking for a sweet contemporary romance to enjoy, pick up a copy of Whole Latte Love, and a cup of coffee, settle into your favorite reading spot and prepare for a sigh-worthy experience.

(I received a copy of this book in a giveaway. I am not required to write a review. All thoughts are my own.)
