Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Libby’s Cuppa Joe by Rebecca Waters with JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Libby’s Cuppa Joe
Author: Rebecca Waters
Publisher: Ambassador International
Release Date: March 8, 2018
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Can grace and love be found amongst coffee grounds?
Sonja Parker is about to find out.
Excited to leave her stale life in the big city behind, Sonja takes the money her grandmother left her and purchases Libby’s Cuppa Joe, a thriving coffee shop in a small community in Wisconsin’s Door County. Sonja may have business sense, but is she ready to face the world on her own?
Sonja soon discovers owning a business requires more than offering a good cup of coffee. She must make major repairs to the building as well as major
repairs to her heart. Do the former owners, Libby and Joe hold the answer? As Sonja seeks to make Libby’s Cuppa Joe a viable business, can she also find herself and the God she has abandoned?
Libby’s Cuppa Joe is a riveting tale of second chances, forgiveness, and not living on borrowed faith.
IN MY OPINION
Rebecca Waters charms readers with her inviting coffee shop, the residents of Fish Creek, Joe, and the woman whose life is touched by each of those things. I especially appreciated Sonja’s journey from going through the motions of Christianity to a heart-deep relationship with Jesus.
While all of those things kept me reading this story, there were several transitions that were large jumps in the timeline, and I couldn’t help but wonder what story development opportunities had been missed. Plus, I was hoping for a bit more of the romance between Kevin and Sonja (but that could easily just be me because I always want more romance).
Libby’s Cuppa Joe successfully emphasizes the grace God and those who love us most grant when we acknowledge and confess our mistakes, no matter how big or small they are.
I receive complimentary books from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including NetGalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
