Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree

After a lifetime of bounties and bloodshed, Viv is hanging up her sword for the last time.

The battle-weary orc aims to start fresh, opening the first ever coffee shop in the city of Thune. But old and new rivals stand in the way of success—not to mention the fact that no one has the faintest idea what coffee actually is.

If Viv wants to put the blade behind her and make her plans a reality, she won't be able to go it alone.

But the true rewards of the uncharted path are the travelers you meet along the way. And whether drawn together by ancient magic, flaky pastry, or a freshly brewed cup, they may become partners, family, and something deeper than she ever could have dreamed.

This was another read for our Family Blessings Book Club. It's also a short and sweet review.

I want to say it’s YA fantasy but it’s just a fantasy novel that I think that YA readers would also enjoy. It is somewhat on the lighter side in terms of world building and fantastical elements. If there is such a genre, I would think this falls under cozy fantasy.

Legends and Lattes is a story of new beginnings, friendships, and life in a coffee shop. It was a quick read, it was a fun read, and it is the start of a new series. Book 2 Bookshops and Bonedust is releasing this fall.
This book was part of my 2023 Reading Off My Shelf Challenge - #50.
