Review of Coffee at Little Angels by Nadine Rose Larter

Phillip, Sarah, Kaitlyn, Caleb, Maxine, Grant, Melanie and Josh grew up in a small town where they spent their high school years together as an inseparable clique. But high school has ended, and they are all living their own “grown up” lives, each under the impression that their group has basically come to an end. When Phillip dies in a hit and run accident, Kaitlyn summons the others to all come back home, forcing a reunion that no one is particularly interested in partaking in.

Coffee at Little Angels follows how each character deals with the death of a childhood friend while at the same time dealing with their own ignored demons after years of separation. Events unfold as the group tries to rekindle the friendship they once shared to honour the memory of a friend they will never see again.

About Coffee at Little Angels 
Truthful in many ways of how some friendships sadly end as we change and grow-up.  From the beginning it goes in this very real manner of life. Introducing us to how all the friends were in childhood as well as teens.  They all had their styles but as the day ended they were always there for each other. Sadly in years to come, hurtful betrayals will plague them. Hurts and wrongs. Coffee at Little Angels isn't all 'look at the good times back then'. There were some hilarious moments too. We come to see some good-natured flair to the friends. They have to discover sometimes things are not as bad as they seem. Even if, their lives drifted and one of their own came to an early death. A delicate simplicity is well-drilled into this novel.
