Long-Distance Coffee by Emma Sterner-Radley is the first part of Midnight Coffee, the story of two people who meet online, become friends and then more. Both are women, both have trouble sleeping, both love coffee.
Isabella, a CEO turned full-time mother and aspiring writer, spends her nights (and days) trying to write a book while taking care of her baby. Erin is an insomniac who works as a personal trainer and is more than a bit of an introvert.
The characters are funny yet realistic, the dialogue believable and the story flows beautifully. It would seem that there isn’t very much action, but if you’ve ever been a part of a long-distance relationship (friendship or whatever) you’ll know how much can and does happen over text, e-mail and video chats.
I loved this book and couldn’t put it away until I’d finished it. Then I read the best bits again (having bookmarked them on the first round)!
