Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree
Viv has been an adventurer and a fighter, but now this orc wants to start a new life - and open a coffee shop. Never mind that no one in town knows what coffee is. Never mind that she has more experience with cutting down her opponents than operating a Goblin-built coffee machine. But this quieter, gentler life has its benefits - and it's exactly what Viv needs.
I was already heading down the path of liking cosy fantasy, but Legends and Lattes has cemented my love of the genre. Its gentle rhythm and focus on found family makes it a perfect read for when you're engaged in some self care. And as a bonus, there's a sweet sapphic love story going on. Gah, I just want to live inside this book. I'm so glad I took a chance and bought the physical copy.
This edition of Legends and Lattes comes with a short story called "Pages to Fill". It's a cute prequel that sets things up nicely, but it also manages to stand on its own.
Alyce Caswell, when she isn't drinking her way through a giant pot of tea, can be found dabbling in multiple genres and writing forms. She has self-published several titles in her space opera family saga, which is divided into two series: The Galactic Pantheon and The Pantheon War. Her most recent book is The Shadow of the Gods.
