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 the 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. Theirs is a legacy of wealth and power, but also of lies, secrets and sins of omission. 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.

Why did I add The Bourbon Thief to my bookshelf?

According to my records, I purchased this audiobook over 6 years ago. I adored The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz and was eager to read more of her work so I picked up a copy thinking that I would read it right away but that is not what happened. I still want to read this book and think it sounds wonderful. Almost all of my friends on Goodreads enjoyed this book a lot and I hope that I will too when I finally get the chance to work it into my reading schedule.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?

  1. That’s a new to me one! I’m not familiar with this author either. I hope you’re able to get to it soon! This meme is giving me such agony over the books I have yet to read! Lol! And it always happens right when I’m at the time of year when I need to read certain books asap! I’ve a few more review books to get through, I need to read some spooky reads soon and then I think late September, October 1 I need to start me reread of Stephanie Garber’s Once Upon a Broke Heart trilogy so I’m ready with a fresh memory for book 3! Lol!

  2. I remember everyone raving about this book. I have not read anything by the author, but people seemed to think fondly of this one

  3. I’m pretty sure I have this one too somewhere in the depths of my Kindle! It looked so good when it came out but I completely forgot about it.

  4. ooooh I haven’t seen this one in a while but I remember how popular it was when it was released! I hope you end up loving this one. This author really scares me lol But definitely looking forward to seeing what you think of her work.
