Another fantastic story by Ms Reisz I love her Original Sinners series and I was curious to see how she would do with such a different type of story While many authors struggle with making this type of a transition choosing to stick to the same enres and writing similar stories Ms Reisz transitioned flawlessly The Bourbon Thief is storytelling at it s best I was completely enraptured with this story from start to finish The narrator for the Audible edition was fabulous adding a richness to the characters and story I put my headphones on and The Craving got lost in this book for the day Everything else ceased to exist It was thatoodThe story spans several different eras The story begins in the present day with the femme fatale Paris etting caught stealing from the wealthy Cooper following a one night stand It uickly jumps back decades as Paris tells the story of the young Tamara Maddox the sixteen year old h 5 Unforgettable STARS A family with bourbon in it s blood and blood on their hands image error 5 stars As long as nobody ets hurt and it doesn t spook the horses do what you want and keep the details to yourself Tiffany Reisz yet again delivers an enchanting and haunting tale of love and family and how family legacy can affect one s fate The Bourbon Thief begins when a man named Cooper spends the night with a femme fatale named Paris and wakes up to discover she tried to steal a million dollar bottle of bourbon from him When he confronts her she tells him the tale of the downfall of Maddox family and the events leading to the fire that claimed their

riding in the wind with joy at my feet and freedom in my h The Bourbon Thief by Tiffany Reisz is a 2016 MIRA publication I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I have not read any books by this author was totally unfamiliar with her work having chosen this book based solely on the synopsis Since this book is SO ood I decided to see what other novels this author may have written Okay I can t really see myself reading any of Tiffany s previous titles but if she writes any books like this one Kentucky outrageous wealth horses and bourbon make a powerful blend but spike the punch with a little scandal dark and dirty family secrets and the most potent ingredient of all REVENGE then you ot yourself one toxic concoction one sure to leave you very intoxicated and maybe even a little hung over But if anyone were to ask me if would ever drink from this deadly potion again the answer would be a resounding YES For Cooper Mcueen very few women can compete with his love for The Million Dollar Goal good bourbon But when Paris walks into his establishment she commands his undivided attention in a way no woman ever has before and the night is justetting started Cooper can t Securing Caite get enough of Paris and she is than happy to oblige leaving him spent and exhausted But the spell is broken when he wakes up to find she has

the sole heir to the Red Ribbon Bourbon dynasty which built its foundation way back in the last days of the Civil War with money tainted by wicked deeds and spite The family s success comes at a high price and by the time Tamara is sixteen years old any hope of a male heir is fading rapidly The desperation to bring a male child into the family will set off a series of unfathomable events that will blow the doors wide open exposing years of lurid secrets lies and cover ups prompting Tamara to exact the ultimate revenge Whoa This is one wild tale and no it s not always pretty but as twisted as this sounds it s my kind of story I really liked this novel which is deeply steeped in southern history with just a little bit of a Southern Gothic slant which is kind of rare these days A family with bourbon in its blood and blood on its hands This story blends history mystery suspense and romance together to create an unusual love story told with a deft skill which created a fireside atmosphere while throwing explosive twists and turns at you which had me sitting bug eyed and slack jawed with my heart in my throat wondering what could possibly happen next Trust me Paris really knows how to weave a tale This story is unconventional the characters vastly different from any you have ever encountered before something which I really need right now in order to keep my attention and avoid burn
