Book & Author Details:
WHISKEY REVEALS (Whiskey and Lies #2)
by Carrie Ann Ryan
Publication date: April 17th 2018
Genres: Contemporary Romance
One whiskey-saturated night turns into something far more in the second standalone installment of the bestselling Whiskey and Lies series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.
Fox Collins likes his life just the way it is. His siblings are falling in love all around him, but he’d much rather focus on his next story than on a serious relationship. However, when his latest one-night stand returns to Whiskey-this time for good-he’ll need to learn to trust his instincts to figure out if he can live without her in his life.
Former dancer Melody Waters is finally ready to settle down in her grandmother’s small Pennsylvania hometown. Bad decisions and fateful nights have changed her path more than once, but now she’s focused on one thing: opening her new own dance studio. But fate is a funny thing, and once again, she’ll be forced to learn that actions have consequences and some repercussions can not only change your life forever, they can also come back to haunt you…one broken promise at a time.
Each book is a complete stand alone and can be read in any order.
If I have any reservations about this book, it is that the foreshadowing for the main plot line isn’t subtle. I suspect that it isn’t intended to be, given that the majority of the book is around how it is dealt with, but I do sometimes like a little mystery.
That aside, there is a warm feeling about this story that feels like the equivalent of a really good hug. The supporting cast of characters each add an extra flavour to the overall telling which is necessary and lifts the narrative.
Looking forward to seeing what happens in the next in the series!
