Tall Pine Polka by Lorna Landvik
Book DescriptionLife, they say, is a state of mind. In the small town of Tall Pine, Minnesota, that state of mind is found at the Cup O'Delight cafe. The locals gather here for what they call the Tall Pine Polka, an event in which heavenly coffee, good food, and that feeling of being alive among friends inspires both body and soul to dance. Escaping to Tall Pine from an abusive husband, Lee answered the 'What am I going to do with my life?' question by opening the cafe. Among the regulars are: Miss Penk and Frau Katt, the town's only lesbian couple ('Well, we're za only ones who admit it.'); Pete, proprietor of the Shoe Shack, who spends his nights crafting beautiful shoes to present to Lee, along with his declarations of love; Mary, whose bad poetry can clear the cafe in seconds; and most important of all, Lee's best friend Fenny, a smart and sassy twenty-two-year-old going on eighty. Then Hollywood 'discovers' Tall Pine. It seems the sleepy town is the perfect location for a romantic comedy. And Fenny, pounced on like a bone in a yard full of hungry dogs is evidently that rarity in Hollywood: a 'natural'. Lee and Fenny are to find their friendship put to the test as events push their hearts in unexplored directions - where endings really can turn into new beginnings...
