As part of a blog tour organized by Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours, it is my pleasure to tell you about a new cozy mystery series. Risky Whiskey is the first book in a the Bohemia Bartenders Mystery series by Lucy Lakestone.
About the Book
Stirring up trouble in New Orleans …
Eager to shake up her drinks and her life, mixologist Pepper Revelle jumps at an invitation to join the elite Bohemia Bartenders. Leader Neil thinks she’ll be the perfect advance gal for his team at a colorful cocktail convention in her hometown of New Orleans, but the job turns out to be more bananas than a drunk monkey. Setting up the key tasting for their distiller client, she and Neil discover their whiskey has gone dangerously bad. But how? And was this shocking poisoning more than an accident?
As Pepper and Neil try to figure out what happened, keep the drinks flowing and help distiller Dash Reynolds survive the weekend, they find themselves the target of increasingly scary attacks. Maybe it’s the danger, or maybe it’s the drinks, but Pepper also can’t help an inconvenient attraction to cocktail nerd Neil as they stir up trouble and try to figure out who’s out to get them — before they’re sliced and squeezed like a lemon twist in a Sazerac.
Risky Whiskey is the first book in the Bohemia Bartenders Mysteries, funny whodunits with a dash of romance set in a convivial collective of cocktail lovers, eccentrics and mixologists. These cozy culinary comedies contain a hint of heat, a splash of cursing and shots of laughter, served over hand-carved ice.
Given the title and description, it was no surprise that there was a whole lot of drinkin’ going on at the Cocktailia competition. Pepper is excited to be there as part of a top-notch team of bartenders from Bohemia, Florida. But not all is at it seems. A batch of tainted whiskey threatens to spoil the party and Pepper and her team boss, Neil, are soon swept into investigating suspicious events related to the whiskey and its creators, while fighting the temptation to be swept into each other’s arms. Each discovery brings with it new suspects and plot twists, and the identify of the culprit remains unclear until the final reveal. A solid start to what promises to be a light-hearted, fun series.
