Let me clarify: it wasn't the story itself that frustrated me, it was certain events that occurred in the story that gave me the urge to scream into my pillow.. (OK, so I'll admit it.. I screamed into my pillow..) and that only made me appreciate the story more!

Also, I would like to point out right about now that I would really really like a cute Ratcacher mug! Yes people who have not read [b:Coffeehouse Angel|6013810|Coffeehouse Angel|Suzanne Selfors|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1312031585s/6013810.jpg|6189055] yet, the main character, Katrina --but moat people call her: 'The Coffeehouse Girl-- called her cat Ratcatcher, yeah.. Ratcatcher! (I'm seriously hoping I spelt Ratcatcher right.. ;) ) Which, I personally thin k is quite a cute name for kitty. More accurately, it looks cute on paper but I'm not 100% about how cute it sounds out loud :|

In quaint, Scandinavian Nordby, WA, orphaned high school sophomore Katrina Svensen lives above her grandmother's struggling old-world coffeehouse. College applications are due, and she's desperate to discover a true talent, like best friends Vincent, a trophy-laden swimmer, and Elizabeth, an artist, have. Opening the coffeehouse one morning, Katrina discovers a young man prostrate in its alley. Assuming he's homeless or on a bender, she leaves him day-old pastries and fresh coffee, then locks herself inside and calls Vincent. The next time Katrina sees the handsome vagrant, Malcolm, he's declaring in school assembly that he must reward Katrina's unselfish deed with her greatest desire. Malcolm's a messenger angel, but his several attempts to grant the girl's heart's desire go awry. Naming this desire proves difficult for her as she wonders whether she should choose to keep the rival coffeehouse's owner away from her grandmother's business and his daughter away from Vincent, find her passion, or perhaps keep the handsome Malcolm around.

This book was a cute fun read- something i really needed right now. Not too long, it was humorous and I found myself laughing a lot at the image of Malcolm wearing a kilt. A nice stress buster with a good romance. Definitely a book i will reread. ( )

Epigraph
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Hebrews 13:2, The New Testament.

For a single good deed, one will be rewarded tenfold. 6:161, Al-An'am, The Koran

Do you believe in signs? Lightning striking a car you just stepped out of, a black cat crossing your path, a piece of frozen toilet waste falling from an airplane and crashing through the living room ceiling - that kind of thing? Happenstance, maybe. Or maybe something bigger than you is well aware of your existence and trying to tell you something. I never used to believe that kind of stuff.

But then I met him.
Dedication
First words
The first time I saw him, he was lying in the alley behind my grandmother's coffeehouse. I figured he was some sort of bum.
