The location of this story is so important that it actually feels like a character. The speech habits and accents matter. The basketball culture/UK fans, including their intense dislike of Duke or Louisville were featured. The backbone businesses of whiskey and horse breeding were important.
I have decided Avon Gale is an auto-buy author for me. I preordered this book as soon as I saw it on Amazon. The writing is always solid and error free. Plots are interesting, with some complexity. The characters talk to each other like adults unless they are PURPOSELY being childish. And then it's generally hilarious. The romantic moments are sweet and/or steamy. If it's a hockey story, the hockey knowledge is deep and wide (and as a hockey fan, I like that). The book Whiskey Business hit all the above points, except hockey. There's no hockey in this story. :).
Don't get me wrong, some of the puns they were coming up with was funny but that was about it in the enjoyment factor.
I felt like there were some loose ends, like what did they house name get changed to and what did two cups mean? I think I would of like to of seen more really. Even though this book was a fail to me, I have now been introduced to Avon Gale's writing and back catalogue which is my next port of call.
This is a quick read that provides a fun little distraction for a couple of hours.
Ryder is the owner of Hanged Man Bourbon, a small company that's been in his family and this small town for generations. Unfortunately, the small town is dying so Ryder is trying to revive it through his company. He's been searching for a larger bourbon company to buy the recipe so that both the company and town can get an infusion of new tourists.
Adam is employed by the company who bought the recipe. He's in Gallows Grove to determine if they can leave production of Hanged Man Bourbon there or need to move it to the larger company in Lexington. His presence can determine everything about Ryder's hopes and dreams. On the surface, Adam is a very reserved, staid man, but that's just what he's trained himself to be. He grew up in a family that's all the same. They certainly don't approve of him being gay or flaunting it. It's expected he marry (a female) and then carry on his deviant lifestyle through lovers...as is the family way.
Coming to this irreverent little town is the perfect remedy for his life.
Like I said this was a fun little book. The entire town is built on puns about death. To add to the levels of craziness, the only place for Adam to rent is a tiny room in the top floors of the funeral home where he shares his space with a room full of creepy dolls and a possessed ticking clock.
The book is irreverent and a tad zany, but I liked that about it. I also liked watching the relationship between Ryder and Adam develop and evolve.
A fun, sexy read! I would have loved for this to have been longer!

This was a fun little story about an odd -Northern Exposure- like town with a distillery that's the way they hope to save the town.Read more
