Review: Whiskey Reveals by Carrie Ann Ryan (Whiskey and Lies #2)


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via InkSlinger PR.

Bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan is back with the second novel in her Whiskey and Lies series featuring the three Collins brothers--Dare, Fox, and Loch--and it's all about an unforgettable one night stand that Whiskey native Fox Collins has with Melody Waters. Three months later, Fox is shocked to not only find Melody back in town but to discover that she's Whiskey's newest transplant. Staying with her amazing grandmother--who also happens to be one of Whiskey's most fascinating and well-loved residents--and moving to Whiskey, Pennsylvania was exactly what she needed. This was her opportunity to move her life in a new direction, to learn from all her mistakes and be a better person. She wasn't in the market for any sort of committed relationship with any man, but being friends with Fox was something she was open to. But then Melody realizes that actions have consequences, and when both her distant and recent past demand that she step up and be held accountable, Fox's love and support may be the very things that she needs in order to finally be able to move forward and live her own happy ending.

I have yet to read a lot of Carrie Ann Ryan's books, but based on the ones that I have read--including this latest release of hers--you can count me as a fan of her writing. I love how her stories are, at their very heart, about family. I wouldn't necessarily call Fox and Melody's story a second chance romance, but I guess this was a story about second chances after all. Yes, these two started their history together with a one-night stand, but they shared a connection even back then. This was also about Melody needing an opportunity to start her life over, to be a more mature and more sensitive version of herself. The rest of the Collins clan is present, naturally, and readers get to see where Dare Collins and Kenzie Owens were in their relationship and we're pretty clued in as to who Loch was going to be paired up with in the third book. There's a hint of mystery in this book, as well, courtesy of who it is that appears to be reminding Melody that someone hasn't forgotten what happened when she was younger. All in all, Whiskey Reveals was a great read that had me entertained from start to finish. It gets 4.5 stars. ♥
