Another great installment in the Before the Coffee Gets Cold series. I love that every person coming in to the cafe has a different need/want to go back to the past. Each of the stories is centered around love but each one plays out differently.

I see on GoodReads that there is a fifth book in the series. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series, can't wait for the publisher to translate the next novel. ( )

The fourth book from this rather enjoyable series: at least it had been rather enjoyable up to this book.   But i'm beginning to feel that Toshikazu is beginning to get a bit repetitive and the cafe is beginning to become a little stale.

I think that Toshikazu is simply rushing out books and not really making any effort to create something new and interesting, which is a shame.   I really feel that what this series needs is for Toshikazu to just put it down for a while and not come back to it until he has something new and interesting to bring to the cafe.

That's my thoughts on the matter, it really doesn't need to be ruined to meet a deadline, either with the publisher or with Toshikazu's bank account.

Bye for now. ( )

ok this time the writing really drove me bonkers. it's just too detached and too many steps away from the emotions for me. the philosophical questions being asked in these books are still interesting, and actually in this one more so - it kind of addresses the loopholes and what-abouts that come up when reading the others, so i appreciated that for sure. but i really was bothered by the writing this time, and the number of things that felt like inconsistencies to me. like the way (for example) in one story she said she thought he was boring and wasn't really interested in him at all but then later in the story spoke as if the opposite was true? it was too all over the place. i don't know why i keep listening to these.

“There are many crossroads in life. All regrets stem from what happened at one moment we never imagined would happen to us. When our own action brings about an unexpected result, how can we not experience huge regret? After all, do we ever get another shot?”

Before We Say Goodbye by Toshikazu Kawaguchi (translated by Geoffrey Trousselot) is the fourth installment of the Before the Coffee Gets Cold series and personally one of my favorites (along with Book #2, Tales from the Café ).

Set in Café Funiculi Funicula in Tokyo, we meet an interesting cast of characters (both old and new) – café regulars, owners and staff and first-time visitors who come to the café for the unique experience of time travel. The rules are the same and no one can change their past. Then why go back? Love, regret, nostalgia, guilt, the need to say goodbye and to share what was left unsaid. In four interconnected stories we meet a former professor who spent most of his life busy with his career desires to speak to his wife who is now bedridden after an accident; a husband wants his wife to take the opportunity to say goodbye to their beloved dog Apollo who passed on while she was dozing; following a cryptic message left by her deceased former boyfriend a young woman visits the café to meet him for the last time and finally a young woman hopes to say goodbye and apologize to her deceased father for her behavior toward him during their last meeting.

The beautifully written, insightful and heartwarming stories inspire pause and reflection. This short novel left me with a lump in my throat and a smile on my face. Definitely recommended for fans of the series and can be read as a standalone.

Many thanks to Harlequin Trade Publishing and NetGalley for the digital review copy. All opinions expressed in this review are my own. Before We Say Goodbye was published in the United States on November 14, 2023. ( )
