TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – THE SOLID GROUNDS COFFEE COMPANY by CARLA LAUREANO

 

THE BLURB

Analyn Sanchez can handle the long hours and arrogant clients that come with her job as a crisis management associate at Denver’s largest publicity firm. The high-powered job, expensive condo, and designer wardrobe are all part of her plan to prove to her family that her life choices haven’t been in vain. But when she’s asked to cover up a client’s misdeeds with serious moral and legal ramifications, she can no longer sacrifice her conscience for her career . . . and the cost is no less than her job.
Ever since a devastating climbing accident in South America eight months ago, and a bad decision that dried up his sponsorships, professional rock climber Bryan Shaw has found himself at similar loose ends. When the opportunity to buy a coffee farm in Colombia arises, he jumps on it—only to discover his wandering ways have left him utterly unprepared to run a business.
When Bryan returns home and offers Ana a role in his company as a solution to both their problems, she’s desperate enough to consider working with the far-too-flippant and far-too-handsome climber, even though he’s the polar opposite of her type A nature. As they delve deeper into the business, however, she begins to suspect there’s much more to Bryan than she’s given him credit for . . . and that sometimes the best plans are the ones you never see coming.

MY REVIEW

Well guess who MUST go back and read the first two books in this series?? This reader, that’s who!! I loved this story!

A gifted writer, Ms. Laureano draws the reader right into the story and doesn’t let go. Descriptions so vivid it was like walking into the room—or the roastery. Circumstances so gripping, personalities so raw, characters so real I was ready to sit down and share a hot cuppa with them myself.

Detail oriented and micromanager Analyn meets free spirit, world wanderer, rock climbing Bryan was kind of like pinning a cloud to the ground. But perhaps Ana was just the pin to put Bryan on solid ground.

I appreciated the struggles each of them face, both with their respective pasts and with secrets well hidden. But as they spent time together—in a strictly professional capacity of course—they both discovered the other has something they each need.

The twists in this story caught this reader by surprise and kept me turning pages—and wanted a good hot cuppa.
