    Café Nevo is superb fiction and it does what superb fiction is supposed to: It transports the reader to a wonderful place, a place so vivid that it seems real. You'll want to visit and meet the characters, sit for a schmooze, and enjoy it all. Just one warning: don't start this book until you have to finish it because you won't be able to put it down!
