Let's Booktalk-- The Espressologist by Kristina Springer


Courtesy of Goodreads
Jane Turner is Jane Austen, if she was a teenage barista working to save up for college. Although, Austen may turn in her grave knowing such romance was occurring over a cup of hot or cold java instead of a cup of tea, this doesn’t hamper Jane Turner in the slightest. As an “espressologist” she can match anyone through their drink order, except herself. “I can’t just make our drinks match”, (108) she proclaims when discussing her own love life.

So, we have a matchmaker using coffee orders to determine compatibility, a best friend who finds love in all the wrong places, the main character’s love interest who is not the perfect match for her, and the perfect match that is dating the best friend. Can love for Jane Turner, have the same happy ending as one of Jane Austen’s novels? Or, will it end in spilt coffee and a shattered mug for a heart? Whatever happens just remember to tip the barista when you are through.
