From the internationally celebrated author of the Original Sinners series comes a brand-new tale of betrayal, revenge and a family scandal that bore a 150-year-old mystery

When Cooper McQueen wakes up from a night with a beautiful stranger, it's to discover he's been robbed. The only item stolen—a million-dollar bottle of bourbon. The thief, a mysterious woman named Paris, claims the bottle is rightfully hers. After all, the label itself says it's property of the Maddox family who owned and operated Red Thread Bourbon distillery since the last days of the Civil War until the company went out of business for reasons no one knows… No one except Paris.

In the small hours of a Louisville morning, Paris unspools the lurid tale of Tamara Maddox, heiress to the distillery that became an empire. But the family tree is rooted in tainted soil and has borne rotten fruit. Theirs is a legacy of wealth and power, but also of lies, secrets and sins of omission. The Maddoxes have bourbon in their blood—and blood in their bourbon. Why Paris wants the bottle of Red Thread remains a secret until the truth of her identity is at last revealed, and the century-old vengeance Tamara vowed against her family can finally be completed.

Wow! The Bourbon Thief is first Tiffany Reisz book and certainly not my last. This book came highly recommend to me by Natasha is a Book Junkie and I devoured this book in a day.

Completely captivating, an addicting page-turner that spans 100+ years. A story of familial greed, lies and revenge that will leave readers gripping their kindles, wanting more.

Told in both present and past POV, readers will be mesmerized by the history of the Maddox family and the Red Thread Bourbon distillery.

I SO appreciated the author’s masterful storytelling, the thoughtful and intricate details that went into every scene that unfolded, and most of all I completely fell in love with the characters; the characters who were so well crafted and whose voices were so vivid and real that I LIVED this story, I was a part of this story, and I LOVED every single second I spent with them.

The Bourbon Thief is a riveting story that will entertain readers, leaving you on the edge of your seats, guessing at every turn of the page. A #mustread #mustclick 5 star read and an author who has a devoted new fan.

P.S. I know I am not telling you much of the story but believe me when I say that you will want to experience this as the story unfolds so you get the best experience with this book; the mystery and that edge of your seat “what happens next” feeling that will be coursing through your body – this is the BEST way to read this book…I promise!

Love what they destroyed.

Destroy what they loved.
