Book Reviews & Giveaways: Bo’s Cafe

Bo’s Café

Authors: John Lynch, Bill Thrall & Bruce McNicol

When I first opened “Bo’s Cafe”, I thought “oops – this one goes to Broad Z!” Zippy reviews self-help books. And I started reading anyway.

The story of Steven and Lindsey Kernen, Andy Monroe, with the restored Buick Electra, and the folks at Bo’s Cafe is more than a story. This novel is about any of us. All of our lives resonate within each page. The book follows the journey of Steven Kernen, often backfiring like any old engine, whose life and marriage is falling apart because of his rage and “It’s not my fault” attitude. Steven, a big corporate businessman, at a big company is losing it. Enter Andy Monroe, an ex-big businessman who now works at a marina. Throw in Andy and Hank and Cynthia from Bo’s Cafe, and the dance begins.

The heart of this novel is about spirituality. Because this novel is short and sweet, I don’t want to give away any more. In the days before I dropped corporate America to work part-time in a peaceful arena that suited my laid back personality, I was Steven Kerner. Every sentence hit its mark. Don’t let me steer you wrong here – this book titillates, bounces you up and down and back again, and the brakes are put down hard when the Steven revs too high. I absolutely loved it and it touched me deeply. If you’re a fan of “The Shack”, you’ll love this novel.

Fast read, and extraordinarily interesting, couldn’t put it down.

Drive it out of the lot readers, it’s a winner!

Rating is based on a 5-star scale.

Doesn’t fit into the Plot-Character-Presentation dynamic, so “Bo’s Cafe” gets a 4 overall.

Review by Broad “A” – Ava

Bo’s Cafe can be pre-ordered at Amazon.com for $10.28

  3. It is a little hard to follow what the book is about due to the lack of comments by the reviewers. Is it about self-employment-small business owner or down grading his employment field? Could be interesting would like to give it a try.

  19. I kind of wish when some people feature reviews, that they'd let us know if the book has lots of cussing and such. Get my drift? lol Anyways, I like your reviews. Thanks.
