    One thought on “Leaving the Comfort Cafe”

    1. This story was beautifully written and often surprised with vivid imagery and great wisdom spoken from the lips or minds of the characters. In general, it was a lovely story with a relatively unique and interesting plot-line. It is an interesting mix of quirky, small-town relationships and deeper family ties, the process of forgiveness, growing and falling in love. "In the South, Tradition never dies, You can choke it and poison it and cuss at it all you like - but it never really dies." (locati [...]

    2. Think category romance with a dash of wacky and you have this light and sweet romance, which is refreshingly free of mush and delightfully full of audacity. While it could use an overall edit for typos and what seem to be some incorrect autocorrect changes (d@mn you, autocorrect!), the depth of the characters was fantastic--I was sorry to finish reading because I'd become attached to them all; they walked right off the pages to tell me their story. The atmosphere was lighthearted and homey, cozy [...]

    3. This was a pick-me-up story about living life and finding happiness in the every day. At first I was a bit unsure of the story because the characters were hard to relate to. Austin was whiny and Blythe was over-the-top eccentric and the rest of the characters were simply unbelievable. But over time the story seemed to relax into an entertaining read.I really loved Austin’s comic book based on the town people. It was a fun geek outlet that lent Austin depth, while serving to make the characters [...]

    4. honestlyhad a really hard time getting through this one. only finished because i always hear that voice saying "maybe it'll get better" it seemed like every line in the book was trying to be some great turn of phrase. i just wanted to have a sentence without a metaphor. i felt like it was close in a few places to being something better, but then ended up falling flat. i wanted the whimsy of his comic book world but the descriptions were so overwrought it bogged the story down. i didn't really ca [...]

    5. A cute easy to read book set it a quirky small Southern town (are there anything but quirky small towns?) The main character Austin pulls an absolutely douche move about 3/4 way through the book, and I had a very hard time giving the 3 stars because of it. I wanted to reach through the book and smack him. I loved the character of Blythe the apparently flighty waitress with an ever changing past. There is potential in the book, the ending was a bit rushed, and as I said, Austin was a douche.

    6. What an awesome read! Super fun story line and lots of colorful characters with personalities that take hold of you and don't let go. Sometimes we must learn to be content with where we are in life, even though it's not the most exciting all the time. You never know where it will take you, and you may just find that you are right where you are supposed to be all along~ Don't pass this one up, I was lucky enough to pick this up for FREE on pixelofink.

    7. Maybe it's because I come from a quirky area myself, but I enjoyed the book. If anything, I wished it would have been longer. The ending felt very rushed, and I would have liked to savor it more.I found the characters likable and the antics entertaining. Yes, there are some errors in it, so if that sort of thing bothers you, be forewarned. It didn't distract me from the story.

    8. This was a good book with a really good message. I thought the story was great and the interplay between Blythe and Austin was especially compelling and witty. I also liked this book because it was set in North Carolina.Nothing really wrong with this book and I would recommend it to others, it just wasn't the perfect book for me. I will, however, look for more books by this author.

    9. started out a bit slow but then picked up nicely. cute little story about finding yourself forgiving and grace. Blythe is the bright spot throughout the book. quirky but honest and truly brilliantfun character. ending was quick.

    10. This was a free ereader. I wasn't fond of the main female character. There didn't seem like there was a strong connection between her and the main character. The story was choppy in sections and the ereader had several typos.

    11. Very light, mostly amusing book. I read it in an afternoon. Story of young, new city manager that moves to a small town in NC and the residents he encounters. If you are looking for light, well constructed fare this is a good choice.

    12. The story was somewhat predictable. I can believe the characters acted the way they did because people are just stupid. It's a quick read and the ending is worth it.

    13. Different, but cute and quirky. It was a bit slow to start but picked up nicely half way through. Worth the free download for a car ride or flight or vacation.

    14. Sweet book.A coming-of-age tale times two.The main characters, really, were not so likeable, not necessarily people you would seek to be friends with. One was too needy and one was just too not interesting.But they grew in the story, you learned of them in the story, and in the end, you could see yourself sitting down with them for a meal or two and thoroughly enjoying their company.It was beautifully written in spots, evocative of places and feelings. But there were just some issues I had with [...]

    15. This book started out a bit weird with the main character being caught in a superhero world. I wasn't sure that I would even keep reading. However the introduction of Blythe, the antagonist provided humor and color to what otherwise, may have been a boring read. The ending seemed rushed and quite frankly, I felt the epilogue was kind of pointless with the tie-in being forced. But overall, the plot and characters were interesting and it was a quick read.

    16. The story was choppy and a little flat. I wished the characters had been more developed, b/c I think it would have made the entire story line easier to read. I would not recommend this book. There were some pretty obvious typos, but b/c I downloaded it to my Kindle I overlooked that. I've run into the same issue w/ other Kindle books, so I'm assuming they were typos that just didn't translate to the Kindle edition as originally intended.

    17. Sarah This book was only okay. It was interesting to have a "chick lit"-esque book written from the man's perspective, but the characters still felt pretty flat. Also, there were many errors (spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc.) that were pretty distracting. But it was free from for kindle, so I guess it was worth the price. :-)

    18. Some very likeable characters--story line could use a little tightening up. Would liked to have heard more about Blythe's reunion with her nephew and brother. The town hall meeting at the very end was silly. It reminded me of "The Accidental Tourist" and I can definitely see why DDW is compared to Anne Tyler--that is a nice compliment!

    19. It took me a while to read this book because it dragged at times and I had to to really be in the right mood to read it. It also had quite a bit of misspelled words and grammatical errors. Overall the story itself was cute but a little shallow for me. I think two stars is a little low but three is a little too high.

    20. This book started out with some excellent descriptive writing, I quickly became interested in the characters, but about half way through the plot was so predictable. Maybe an easy beach read, (but do people really lay on the beach and read?)

    21. An off beat, utterly charming story of learning who you are and living joyfully. I wish it had gone a bit farther, but at the same time, the ending fit perfectly in its own way. Highly Recommended:)

    22. It was a light and easy romance, but thought the characters could have been developed more. The plot didn't really have much point as well, the end seemed rushed, the epilogue was pointless, and there was no closure.

    23. It was a good story with a happy ending, but the characters seemed under-developed. There was a lot left unexplained about Blythe.This is one that I started, then set down for awhile. It took me a bit to get into it, but it was worth finishing.

    24. More gym reading. This was alright. The scene near the end was pretty cool, but other than that, I thought this one was just mediocre.

    25. A quick read with some quirky characters. The ending is abrupt, but still satisfying. Beware: lots of typos in the Kindle edition.
