What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

“I’m afraid my vagina might turn itself inside out if you try to give it another orgasm so soon.” — Scarlett Bodine

Raised by her three overbearing brothers, Scarlett is a hell-raising tomboy with a tool belt. A tornado stirring up trouble everywhere she goes. Her favorite pastimes? Drinking any man under the table and two-stepping. But she has zero interest in love. Scarlett’s only being neighborly when she claims her sexy next-door neighbor as her new pet project.

Devlin is a man at rock bottom. Marriage, political career, five-year plan to Washington, D.C. All destroyed with one well-placed jab. The golden boy is now the black sheep relegated to Bootleg Springs, a tiny West Virginia town with two claims to fame: 1. Moonshine and 2. The cold case disappearance of a teen girl.

Devlin just wants to lick his wounds. But Scarlett has other ideas for his tongue… and the rest of him. She’s determined to bring him back to life, even if getting him back on his feet means never seeing him again. But when an old mystery becomes new news, she’ll need his help to survive the scandal.

Thoughts on Whiskey Chaser

Sweet and feisty

This HEA has all the marks of a feel good romp, with just enough snark and country to make you laugh out loud. It’s charming, heart warming and the perfect summer read.


  • The Bodines… love them!!
  • Scarlett sticks to her guns, and who she is.
  • HEA.
  • Good use of multiple POV


  • I was going to complain about lack of resolution with the cold case mystery, till I read the author’s note – answers build slowly throughout the series with final in book 6. Good to know.
