The Perfect Blend by Allie Pleiter

Love this one! It is a Love Inspired novel. I have read 1 other book by Pleiter and liked it ok. She write Chick-Lit which I don't always care for. The Perfect Blend is an exception to that rule. Not sure why... it just worked well!

Coffee connoisseur Maggie Black has a plan... a God inspired plan. She is going to open a Christian Coffee House... Higher Grounds (great name!) and use it not only as a source of income, but to fulfill her calling to share Jesus with others... especially those who wouldn't set foot in a church. All she needs is funding and that isn't happening! Banker William Grey III, a tea drinking Brit, denies Maggie's loan and crushes her dreams. But there is a way out. Mr. Grey suggests Maggie take his small-business course to learn a bit more about what it takes to start up a business... and Maggie accepts his challenge.
In her efforts to succeed and impress Mr. Grey, she comes to learn that her dream will take a lot more work than she realized and that she needs someone in her life to share the load. Could the stuffy Mr. Grey be the one?
Really good read!
