Yes, of course she can, because this is fluffy 'chick lit.' It's predictable, sweet, and perfectly entertaining. I could practically smell the lattes as Jane described the various drink orders, and I was disappointed to finish at 3am, long after the local Starbucks had closed! Despite the brevity of the novel (184 pages), the characters seem like real people - probably because you recognize them from your own local coffeeshop. The author wrote the book while ensconced in a table at Starbucks, observing the baristas and locals and working them into her narrative. The 'Emma' connection is subtle and never feels forced.
Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended if you're looking for a pleasant way to spend the afternoon, preferably with coffee drink in hand :)
Mean girl Melissa visits the coffee shop and makes fun of Jane every chance she gets. They went to school together, Melissa was older so now she's already in college.
I didn't like Will at all. I felt like the whole time he was using Jane to get free coffee. He charmed it right out of her most of the time. That bugged me how it went right over her head. I really did like Cam though. He was a sweet guy and he was really a lovable character. I liked Jane and Em's relationship and how they wouldn't let anything come between them. Derek- Jane's boss was also pretty cool. Yes, he was a pain but I enjoyed him.
Well, after Derek hears about Jane's qualities as a matchmaker he makes it into a 4 week Friday night business venture where customers could come in, order a drink, and get matched. I loved this aspect. I loved seeing Jane's relationships evolve, I loved seeing her match people together especially the couples she choose to match.
I really enjoyed reading The Espressologist. It was a short fun read with a great cast of characters from Jane to Derek to Cam to Em. Even if your not a coffee person, this book is full of fun! I did learn quite a bit about different drinks though. I didn't even know some of them existed and they make me want to try them!
Overall: A fun cute awesome book! I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a light and fun read!
Cover: Love it! The coffee is what made me want to read this one! Even the drink looks really good!

But, fashion? Come on! Jane didn't seem like the fashion type AT ALL. With all her notes and observations, she sounded more like a future psychologist.
Other thing- her relationship with Cam, I didn't get that either. I love books where the gooey, sentimental parts where they (finally) get together are just in the end, and have an open end, and this was one of them, but HOW DID THEY GET THAT WAY?! It's not as if the book were filled with Jane's sighs and Cam's sighs and love notes! PAH-LEASE! (I can't believe I just wrote this either.) You just find everything out in the very end, well, that didn't make much sense.
I'd like to meet Jane, though, if she were real, I mean. I liked of what I got to know about her. Cam too, I guess. I loved Gavin too, though he didn't appear much, he seemed fantastic. Will, though...err...I didn't like Will at first, I didn't like him in the end. I had to say that.
But despite all that, it was still a pretty good book, so I do recommend this if you're looking for an interesting and original book that has no vampires in it.
