In a small town, everyone knows everyone. Or do they? Michaela Stone, owner of the Sea Stone Café, is a woman thrown more than one hard knock by life. Vivian Harding is the ¿Diva¿ of the Opera World. Michaela and Vivian are two women who would most likely have never met were it not for the mysterious circumstances that brought Vivian back to East Quay. What were those circumstances? It seems no one is telling, least of all the key player in the mystery. Eryn Goddard, a reporter for the local paper, hopes to discover why one of East Quay¿s famous children has suddenly returned. Manon Belmont is the rich and sophisticated head of the illustrious and well-known Belmont Foundation. Manon has an extreme distrust of the press, which sets her and Eryn¿s first meeting off to a rocky start. So imagine their surprise when the two women discover they are neighbors in the same building. Eryn nevertheless sets out to befriend the seemingly aloof socialite but finds one roadblock after another thrown up in her face with each attempt. Manon makes it painfully obvious that there are things about her that are off topic...especially things about her past. Why? What could have happened to make such distrust so focused? What happens when secrets held are in danger of being discovered? The guiding force of life soon sends the four women on the paths chosen for them. Vivian and Michaela begin to discover that age is only a state of mind when love enters the picture as Manon and Eryn decide that maybe having faith in each other can take them a long way towards a possible romance and the four of them discover that friendship could be the key to it all. Coffee Sonata, a wonderful mix of romance and drama with a smidgeon of intrigue thrown in, takes the reader on a journey with two different sets of women. Each woman has been dealt different sets of cards by life. What happens when all the cards decide to return to the same deck in one small town? Take a load off, pull up a stool, have a cup of java at Michaela¿s café and enjoy another tremendously entertaining story woven by author Gun Brooke, who gifted the reading world first with the engaging book, Course of Action.

This book was published in 2006 and I read it in 2017. The story line and struggles between Vivian and Mike were just as relevant now as when the book was written. The writing and language used to describe their situations and fears was well-done and just heart-wrenching to read in spots. The self-struggle Manon went through and the family conflicts with Eryn still occur for many and made their stories relatable.
