Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

The Bourbon Thief was a breathtakingly captivating tale that spanned generations. Filled with deception, murder, forbidden love and a mystery that took the entire book to unravel, this story absolutely consumed me.


I’ll admit I’m a huge fan of Tiffany Reisz’s Original Sinners series. There were so many twists and turns, so many strong characters, and so much emotional entanglement between them all that I couldn’t get enough. And quite honestly, The Bourbon Thief had those same qualities but in a standalone novel instead of being spread out over the course of several installments. The storytelling itself was the most impressive element for me here.
