Now Hiring

I can always count on a short story by Michelle Hollstein when I need a few laughs. Great characters, including one with a little bit of dementia, one with great looks but little smarts, and a harried Coffee Shop owner. Be prepared to giggle and maybe LOL while listening to this book.

The narrator, Nance Weber, was perfect for this book. Her voices were great and her performance was wonderful. A great combination of a good story and great performance when you need something light-hearted and fun. I was given the chance to listen to this book by the author/narrator/publisher and chose to review it.

Interview for a Barista

A very cute short story about a small group of very different people in a coffee shop. Well written story by Michelle Ann Hollstein. Nancy Weber did a good job distinguishing between the characters as the narrator.

highly recommended!

I loved this story! The characters are realistic and fun. The writing is well done, and the story is fun! On top of that Nance Weber really brought it to life! She did a great job giving each character a different voice and just the right voice for each character in my opinion! I highly recommend this story and hope to hear more of them!

you can't make this up!!

This is a bizarre group of people you'd probably have to pay to see in a circus or zoo.. Humorous and entertaining. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.

Interesting introduction to characters and coffee shop

This is a short introduction to the characters (with a bit of background) and gives a little foreshadowing of how stories might unfold in the series. First the narration was excellent with good distinctions between the characters but that didn’t sound too contrived. The story moved at a good pace and quickly got me to the point where I wanted to know more about the coffee shop crew and what antics they get up to!
