About the Book
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.

In My Opinion
The anticipation for book three in Carla Laureano’s The Saturday Night Supper Club has been building since the first book in this series. No-nonsense, career woman Ana and professional rock climber Bryan finally get their story. And what a book it is!
First, Bryan has done some maturing since that first book and continues to do so throughout The Solid Grounds Coffee Company. Ana’s journey is different but her spiritual and emotional growth are no less moving. And the chemistry these two have is as robust as the coffee beans Bryan’s attempting to roast.
While the characters made this story for me, Laureano’s attention to detail with rock climbing, the roasting process of coffee beans, and even the Colorado lifestyle give the book depth. The friendships between Rachel, Melody, and Ana as well as Bryan and Alex are solid and a fantastic element to not only this book but the entire series.
It’s bittersweet to say goodbye to this series, but I know Laureano has more wonderful reads for readers ahead.
