Coffee Break offers a rich blend of romance in a cozy, small-town setting, with a light flavor of wild horses.
Tension begins to percolate when coffee shop owner, Jenni Stallings, struggles to keep the doors of her beloved shop open. She wants to earn her dying father's approval, to convince him that she is financially secure so he can die peacefully. She also strives to win the marathon, Run for the Horses, to benefit the nearby wild islander ponies.
When bank vice president and old high school crush, Scott Botticelli, temporarily moves back to the small, seaside town, he threatens to reject her much-needed loan. When he takes up running, she realizes he has rediscovered his passion for the sport, and for her. Despite the fact he holds the power to squelch her dreams, a romantic interest starts to brew between them. Always the determined competitor no matter the game, Jenni finds herself facing her failing business, her father's mortality, and the race of her life-against the man she loves.
5 Stars--Loved the characters, and the local beach, islands, and small-town life!
I read both of these books and enjoyed them. I live on the Crystal Coast and lots of her descriptions of local places and the horses, are very much like our blessed life here. The stories were engaging and the author makes you feel like you met a new friend."--Customer review
5 Stars--If you like the beach, romance and wild horses then this is the book for you!
I just finished reading Coffee Break. I loved it! I had just finished Book 1 High Tide and loved catching up with familiar characters in Book 2. I grew up sailing boats. The way Lori described the sailboat in a storm brought back many memories for me. The reading of the will brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for being such a good writer. I can't wait to read Island Summer.
5 Stars--Enjoyed the Crystal Coast Series
I enjoyed reading both books by Lori Hayes - High Tide and Coffee Break. The stories had me sneaking off to go read more and longing for both the beach and wild horses!
