ALIENS, SPACESHIPS AND THE OCCASIONAL LATTE by M. J. Wahl at first glance had the faint aroma of genius: A nice cover, an intriguing title, and an entertaining blurb.

This is a fun sci-fi adventure. A private detective gets pulled into a clandestine business of selling coffee to aliens and is whisked away across the galaxy. Along the way you'll find laughs, adventure, danger, and a bit of romance.

It was a very entertaining and well-written book. I enjoyed it all the way through and would recommend it to anyone. The only drawback is that it is a continued series and I am to old to wait for a series.

Enjoyable Escapism

Different and humorous. Light hearted adventure akin to a 50s style sci fi show with better writing. An apolitical story where the writer just wants to provide an enjoyable read.

What a ride!

I totally loved this book from start to finish! I love first contact books, and this one was really fun! I hope to see the relationships develop in a next book. I don’t drink coffee, but this made me appreciate the Interplanetary Java crowd! Well done, Mr. Wahl!
