Coffee and Kung Fu: Review

by Karen Brichoux


Twenty-six-year-old Nicci Bradford doesn't exactly love her job fixing the grammar in company brochures, or living in Boston, or going on awkward fix-ups with men she barely knows. What she does love is Kung Fu movies...especially the ones starring Jackie Chan. Their timeless and inspired wisdom offers her a philosophy of life. The problem is she doesn't have much of a life to philosophize about. But Jackie Chan is also a pretty good action hero. And when opportunity-and risk-present themselves in unexpected ways, it's up to Nicci to follow her hero's example, focus on her goal, and strike...

Coffee and Kung Fu has a nice new edge when it comes to " Chick Lit" books. I am not certain what made me pick this book up at the library, funny title maybe? I will be honest in saying I had never heard of this book before or the author. Chalk it up me just glancing at the right shelf and the right time. This book was subtle in it's humor and kept a nice pace throughout the whole story.

I am giving Coffee and Kung Fu 4 stars ( seeing a trend here lately) and it falls into these reading challenges....
