As I sit here drinking....surprise...Coffee!! I can't help but be in awe of the newest Harris Gray mind melding.
It's a wonderful journey into the everyday unknown.
Brian (wholly boogers!) is beyond. Yes, he has Cancer, but screw it...the Chemo may be tearing down his body, however he's gonna save his coffee shop!!!
I think it's all the ups and downs that takes this book to new levels. Unlike Vampire Vic (which I loved), this book could be happening right now, maybe right there in North

Universal Trials and Tribulations meet Small Town U.S.A.:

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the main character even if he did have poor taste in women. ;-) I loved the banter between characters and reading about the quirky people you probably find in coffee shops along with the competition between shops.
I found the addition of the cancer and treatment surprising and interesting. I look forward to reading more from Harris Gray.

Wow, I was really rooting for this hard working man. He had such aspirations for success and around every turn there were roadblocks. Java Man by Harris Gray is a must read for all ages. Do they have any other books? Will put them on my watch for and read list.
