When I read the synopsis, I was thrilled to see the story was set in East Quay. I hoped that meant it would have the characters in it from the Coffee Sonate novel and was excited when the names of some of the characters (Eryn and Mike) appeared. However, that was pretty much what it was…a name drop. There was little to no interaction between Eryn and Mike and the new characters, Darcy and Sabrina. In fact, Mike’s name is just randomly tossed into the story in a line that implies that Mike dropped Darcy as a friend, which if you remember anything about Mike, you know that is the last thing that character would ever do. So, don’t buy this if you want it to be a continuation of Coffee Sonate; you will just be disappointed. However, the main story is entertaining. Darcy and Sabrina are so different that is it interesting to see how they come together as a couple. The situation Sabrina goes though reads a bit like a crime novel and was not immediately solvable which was refreshing.
