Can't Spell Treason Without Tea
A heart-warming, sapphic journey brimming with jeopardy, magic and a love of tea – for fans of Travis Baldree's Legends & Lattes and TJ Klune.
Two women wanted to open a cosy bookshop. They discovered a world of adventure.
Reyna and Kianthe dream of opening a friendly book shop together, serving the very best tea and cakes. Worn wooden floors, plants on every table, firelight drifting between the rafters – all complemented by love and good company. But Reyna is an elite bodyguard to a vengeful queen, and Kianthe is the most powerful mage in existence. Leaving their lives behind seems . . . impossible. Yet they flee to Tawney, a town nestled in the icy peaks of dragon country. There, they open the bookstore they'd always wanted.
What follows is a tale of mishaps, mysteries, dragons, and a murderous queen throwing the realm’s biggest temper tantrum. Through it, these two women will discover what they mean to each other – and their world.
Can’t Spell Treason Without Tea by Rebecca Thorne is a gorgeous treat of a book, filled with cosy adventure, sapphic romance and good feelings. The story continues in the swashbuckling A Pirate's Life for Tea.
Realistic, loveable characters? Check. Witty, well-paced writing that’s a delight to read? Check. Women with swords and magic? Banter for days? PUNS? Check, check, check! (OK, maybe I’m the only one excited about that last one)

If I could give this book 1 million stars, I would. This book is SAPPHIC (but not spicy). And so, so, so, so sweet. It’s like a warm hug with a little side of adventure. Add to it the representation of HEALTHY relationships and mental health struggles and ma’am. Plus throw in a sprinkle of magic and badass women and dragons
