Blog Tour: Bo's Cafe by John Lynch, Bill Thrall, and Bruce McNicol

Bo's Cafe by John Lynch, Bill Thrall, and Bruce McNicol

Review by Emily

Steven Kerner may appear to be successful. He is a thriving executive, after all. But in reality, his life is in shambles. His coworkers dislike him. His wife and daughter are ready to leave him for good. Steven doesn't have anyone to turn to.

He ends up at a run-down old restaurant where he meets an unusual old man. Andy seems to know a lot about Steven and his personal life. Steven doesn't trust Andy but doesn't know where else to go.

Through a series of counseling type meetings, Andy and Steven are able to open up to one another. They discuss faith in Christ, relationships, and allowing others (and oneself) to see the real you.

This book has been compared to
The Shack by Wm. Paul Young. Personally, I thought The Shack was a bit out-there. Bo's Cafe reminded me a lot more of Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. It is certainly preachy, but the points are interesting and valid. So, if you are in the mood to be preached to (and inspired), this may be the book for you. Furthermore, if The Shack and Tuesdays with Morrie (both huge bestsellers) are two of your favorite books, you should probably read Bo's Cafe right away.

If you aren't sure yet if this book is for you, check out some of the other reviews:
