Can coffee and chocolate make everything better? 
It’s worth a shot.

Now that Maya Davis is engaged to her longtime friend and sweetheart, Jack, there should be no more worrying about the future, no more questioning God. Everything should be perfect, right? Actually, it’s just the opposite: Things are complicated. Where are they going to live? What kind of wedding do they want?

And when Jack is offered a once-in-a-lifetime job in Seattle, things begin to unravel even more. Can Maya trust that God is in control even when things seem to be a disastrous mess?

DOUBLE SHOT is the third book in the A Maya Davis Novel series and I’m sorry to see this couple go. Readers will want to read Cool Beans and Latte Daze first, but there is enough back story included so new readers won’t get lost.

Maya and Jack are about the cutest couple ever. Maya is stressed with planning a wedding, a premature nephew, a new coworker, a move, and so much more all happening at once. Just about everything that can rate high on the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale, all happening at once.

There are some inconsistencies in the series – and in the book – which would’ve been caught by a good critique partner. Or even a read-through by the author.

Jack is so sweet and considerate, and patient with Maya, who is a bit of a drama queen. I loved DOUBLE SHOT and the whole series.  Written in first person/present tense. My teenage daughters are reading this series now.

Available in ebook and paperback. 288 pages.
