Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree ~ a Review

by MK French

Viv the orc barbarian is ready to retire from life as an adventurer to open Thune's first coffee shop. But frenemies and the city's shady denizens might interrupt that plan, so Viv will need a new collection of allies for help.

Legends and Lattes
February 2022; Cryptid Press; 979-8985663211
ebook, print (316 pages); romantic fantasy

While the prologue has Viv's last job as a sword for hire, the book is really about the Cafe she builds up.  From selecting the location, getting it refurbished, ordering equipment, and gaining employees, everything is new for her. And for the city of Thune, considering they don't even know what coffee shops are! Of course, there's a mafia of sorts, but Viv wants to solve things peacefully, in keeping with her new way of life. Her tentative steps and growing friendships are charming, and a fun twist on a fantasy novel.

I devoured this book just as Viv's patrons devoured the cinnamon rolls and lattes. It's a fun tale, with a great found family. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and it's just as good on every reread.
