Publisher's Summary

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 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.

    "One if the best 11+ hours spent listening!"

    I bought this audio book by mistake! And once I started listening I could no stop! I listened the 11 hours 49 minutes in two days!

    The narration is outstanding; Kim Staunton is one of the best storytellers I have ever heard, and this book is a beautiful story about power, love, bourbon, horses, racial conflicts adultery, incest, and sex.

    Best used Audible credit in a long time!

    "Great Performance, Overly Complicated Storyline"

    This story was entertaining but was often hard to follow. The material wasn't difficult, just the storyline. Rather than have a few, well-placed twists, it was full of exaggerated attempts to be shocking. I wanted to like it more than I actually did.

    I would recommend this book as a way to kill some time, but not as a mind-blowing read.

    "Very interesting story and full of surprises!!!"

    My wife and I read this book together. We both enjoyed the storyline and the many surprises. Sometimes we were on the edge of our seats!!! While for the most part we enjoyed Kim Staunton's narration, we felt that she was not able to fully capture the nuances of each character. We kept having to rewind to figure out who was talking. I would also like to add that just because we enjoyed this book does not mean there are not parts that did not frustrate us. But I think they all lent to make it the interesting story that it was. No matter how much we yelled at the characters they just kept going down their own paths. :-) We hope there is a part two to this book. Well done Tiffany.

I'm still trying to get my thoughts together and write something more than just a "wow" .. because no matter what my review says it's not gonna do justice to this book.. AMAZING!!!!

    "Unexpected Delight."

    I bought this book on recommendation and immediately wondered whether I'd made a mistake. I hadn't.

    Epic, simultaneously old-fashioned and daring, beautifully read. Paris Shelby will captivate you as the seductive narrator, but it's Tamara you'll remember v

    Story
    "Scandal, revenge, murder, blood, sex and money!"
    Would you listen to The Bourbon Thief again? Why?

    OH. MY. GOD. YES. What I love the most about Tiffany Reisz's books is that they have secrets hidden behind every word and they can only be found by rereading her books. I will repeat The Bourbon Thief at least three or four more times. I need more of these amazing characters. I need more of this taboo story. I need more of revenge. But most of all, I need more of Tiffany's words. She has a way to write that captivates me, makes me think deeply and makes me fall in love more and more with her. I don't think I will ever get enough of Tiffany's books *sighs* PURE PERFECTION.


    What other book might you compare The Bourbon Thief to and why?

    To be honest, no other book I've ever read compares to the Bourbon Thief. The story is unique. The past, the present, the romance, the drama, the shocking storyline. Everything was like nothing I've ever read before, and I thank Tiffany for that. It's been almost three years since I started reading Tiffany's books and she always surprises me. With her Original Sinners Series, which I love deeply and madly, and of course with her other non sinners books. But this book, The Bourbon Thief has something different from her other novels. It's not romance, but it has romance. It's not erotica, but the sex is as amazing as it was in The Original Sinners. It's cathegorized as historical, but I'm not sure if a story in the 80's is historical perse. But... The Bourbon Thief is all that: It's a romance novel, with highly erotic content, that tells a story from the past. It's a thriller with censored content that will shock you, make you scream but you won't want to put it down until you know how this story will end.


    Which character – as performed by Kim Staunton – was your favorite?

    This is a hard question to answer. Kim Staunton did an outstanding performance. Her inflexions for every character was perfect. Her voices for the female and male characters fitted perfectly to their personalities and to the circumstances they are living. But if I have to choose I'd say Tamara was my favorite character. She was young but that didn't stop her from doing what she had to do to protect herself, to get her revenge, to acheave what she wanted. She suffered the unimaginable but she also experience the extraordinary. And she never broke. There were moments when I thought she was going to give up, I thought her young age was going to come up and she'd act childish or immature, but she never did that. She's the best, she's my hero, she's my god, well, I'm just quoting her *chuckles* But seriously, she's amazing.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Bourbon Thief and why?

    Tamara.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to everyone. Everybody has to read it. From Original Sinners Fans to romance readers, to suspense readers, to historical readers, to erotica readers. EVERYBODY. I warn you, around 25% you'll be shocked but don't stop reading, keep going and you'll get to experience one HELLUVA story that will captivate you and keep you on edge until the very last word if this book.
