Divorced and ostracized in the rural community, Andrea Goldine sets her sights on the charismatic java man. Brian's doctors ravage him with chemo and radiation, yet the tumor on his shin grows. Brian drafts Andrea into his battle with a competing coffeeshop, desperate to tap the college campus's retail gold mine. But Andrea yearns for a different partnership...
Passions simmer below the surface of the tight-lipped community. Fresh from prison, North Dakota's legendary basketball goddess dangles a ticket to Brian's campus coffee dreams, and a disgraced scientist's toxin treatment tantalizes. Two miracles for two maladies-with one cure more deadly than the next.

A collaboration began. The writer and the storyteller. As their tales converged and became inseparable, as they were fused by the stories they told...all the king's horses & men can't un-make Harris Gray again.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Very, very funny, with a cast of characters reminiscent of "Cheers," "Java Man" features Brian Lawson, the quintessential entrepreneur. Faced with an aggressive cancer and tolerating equally aggressive therapy, our hero is nonetheless fierce in his determination to expand his little shop into a thriving coffee empire. Brian is thoroughly charming and likeable despite a deplorable tendency to use and discard the women in his life. Not since "Main Street" has a novel so effectively captured the essence of small-town life. What a great read!
