The Expressologist is one of those cute books that you can't put down. Jane Turner has a theory that you can tell a lot about a person by what is your regular coffee drink. She keeps a notebook with she calls Espressology. It is not a totally crazy idea, so she starts hooking up friends based by their coffee order. Like she set up her best friend, Emma(medium hot chocolate) with Cam(toffee nut latte). Soon, her boss, Derek gets wind of Jane's espressology. He decides that it needs be an in-store holiday promotion, promising Customers that will have their perfect match for the cost of a their favorite cup of coffee. Things are going so really, but why is Jane so nervous? Maybe it has something to do with a match that she made, but she is the one that set them up. So, she should be happy so them, right?
I found this book to be so cute. Jane's notebook was hilarious and made me laugh so hard. I could relate to Jane's personality. She was a sweet and tried to do the best actions for everyone, but sometimes she had to listen to her heart. The other character could have been developed a lot more and the subplots could have had more detail. The plot was original. I mean I have never seen a book with a similar plot like this. It did seem that it was a bit rushed, especially with the relationship between Cam and Jane and a few other plot points. Though, I was so excited for the match ups of couples, because they were perfect for each other. This is a cute and fun book, that I wish had quite a bit more length.
