By Erynn Mangum
Latte Daze is the second book in Erynn Mangum’s Maya Davis series. Maya Davis’ life is going just fine. She’s working at her favorite coffee shop, Cool Beans, alongside her boyfriend, Jack, living with her best friend, Jen, hanging out with her pilates loving dog, Calvin, and building a better relationship with her brother and his wife. Everything is just as Maya likes, calm and predictable, until Jen gets engaged, Maya’s sister-in-law announces she’s pregnant and Jack says “I love you” but does she love him?
This is a great follow up to Cool Beans. As light and fun-loving as this book is, Maya’s struggle to trust God in the midst of change is a great reminder to us as the reader to keep the faith. Maya knows in her head God is in control but does she feel it in her heart? Erynn does an awesome job of applying scripture to the character’s situations and sharing how God can speak in the right place at the right time.
“Reasons It’s Okay to Like Change:
1. God is in control.
2. God is in control.
3. God is in control.
4. Without change, we would not have any ice-cream flavors except vanilla.”
