Check out the book that inspired the designs in this shop. Isabella's Coffee is run by Benjamin Jacobson and created by the author, Chelsea Lauren. It's also a novel about learning the strength to love yourself.
Will the truth set him free, or drive him deeper into the bottle?
Formerly “cured” in therapy, Benjamin Jacobson refuses to further explore or accept his sexuality—that is until the charming Caden Benson waltzes into his independent coffee shop. As he plays the role of picture-perfect husband and father of two, he relishes the hidden moments of a secret relationship where he can finally embrace who he is. Soon, the increasing weight of a double life demands to be acknowledged, whether Ben is ready to address it or not.
Drowning his troubles in whiskey, torn between the ones he loves, Ben risks losing everything he’s worked so desperately to protect.
Underneath the Whiskey is the poignant and wrenchingly honest story of a closeted gay man struggling to keep his family and business afloat amidst an affair and alcohol addiction.
