Wood's faith fiction debut, Leaper, was enthusiastically received. The evangelical Christian novelist will be warmly welcomed into the hearths and homes of fellow coffee aficionados-and lovers of all things caffeinated and comedic-with this second offering, with an equally engaging and thoroughly satisfying story line that emerges from a fortune cookie. Coffee-shop owner John Parrish squabbles with two employee friends over such heady topics as God's leading, hearing God's voice and living out one's faith. Once Parrish accepts God's cookie-embedded challenge to "take the corner," there's no turning back. Despite fear of humiliation and failure, Parrish treks to the nearest street corner and awaits further instructions from on high. What happens in the following days is entertaining, thought-provoking and completely plausible. Quirky characters and sidesplitting dialogue, laced with the painful ironies of real life, will have readers feeling as though they are indulging in all things cozy, comforting and invigorating.
