Much Ado About a Latte by Kathleen fuller.
She’s loved him for years, but now he’s her biggest competition. Is this town big enough for two coffee shops?
The Sunshine Diner has been Tanner Castillo’s home away from home for years, and his place behind the counter is a fixture in the small town of Maple Falls. After years of working there and saving every penny, he is able to purchase the diner and make the necessary renovations to bring it into the 21st century. Growing up poor, Tanner’s always felt like he’s needed something to his name before he could ask out Anita Bedford.
Due to some savvy business investments, Anita’s parents have been able to provide her and her siblings with everything they’ve ever needed or wanted. But Anita doesn’t have the same ambitions as her doctor brother and lawyer sister. She’s always been happy to work as a waitress at the diner, especially since it kept her close to Tanner, whom she’s been crushing on since middle school.
When her father decides to open a coffee shop and bakery, he puts Anita in charge, making her the direct competition to Tanner’s Sunshine Diner. After working side-by-side for years, can working against each other finally be the thing that brings these two lovebirds together?

Much Ado About a Latte is the second book in Kathleen Fuller’s contemporary romance series, Maple Falls.
This story took me by surprise. I was both excited and hesitant to read it at first. I enjoyed the first book and wanted to see what happened next, but the trope isn’t one that drew me. Turns out, I had nothing to worry about! I was 75% of the way through before I realized where I was in the story, it had me so engaged. Then I had to finish, of course, even if it meant getting an hour less sleep.
I loved everything about this story. The characters and their depth, the struggles, the trials, the ending. The romance was so sweet, too. I highly recommend it!
