Elizabeth “Lizzie” Petrie has it all. She’s rich, beautiful, intelligent, and successful. None of this matters to her mom. Les-bi-an. That’s all her mom sees. Even though Lizzie insists her mom’s antagonism does not bother her, Lizzie distances herself from her entire family. When her brother, Peter, calls her out of the blue to announce he’s getting married, Lizzie’s entire life changes drastically. Peter’s fiancée wants to bring the lesbian outcast back into the family. Will this desire cause Lizzie to lose everything dear to her?

I loved the book series. I've already read them. so when the audio came out i was excited. well the narration wasn't great but i got use to it. and i am looking forward the the next few books in the series. i had this love hate feeling for Lizzie for a while. but then started to feel bad for her. i know she made mistakes but her friends really never let her live it down.
the book was great and had really loving and believable characters. you will find yourself lost in the lives and dramas. it worth reading for sure.

Engaging is not even the best way to discrible the feel of this story. It felt as if I was there the whole time. Like i was a regular sitting at the end if the bar listening and witnessing all the comings and goings of the townspeople. There was so much passion, and loyalty, new friendships and exciting experiences going on. I knew from the first page i was hooked and was going to be wanting more.
The narration was Brilliant this book could not have had better.
The ending... well lets just say it will make you run and grab the next in the series moments after you finish the last word.
This is definitely A best seller!!!!

ok so book 1 ends on a cliffhanger. yes i was shocked as well. However book 2 brings a lot more attention to the meaning of loyalty, family, and true love. ( still leaves you wanting more)
i have to say for an Armstrong book i found it to be a bit short, comparing to her other novels, but this is where i hope there will be many more visits to Whiskeys Springs.
I was hooked from the very first chapter of the series. I finished them rather fast. so i know i will be visiting them soon.
the characters were loving and so easy to like. the stoy pulled you in and kept the drinks coming so you felt right at home.
This book along with the first one On Tap.. was two of the best Armstrong has written to date.. I truly can not say enough good thgs about the series, so let me say this. The narration was out of this world good. knowing this I'm wondering why you haven't bought your copies yet. you won't regret it!!!

This was a really good book I found the raw emotions from each character to be realistically sound. The story line was easy to follow. It kept me engaged and wanting...like any good read should. I was heartbroken for the MCs and hopeful to the end for their love. It was really heartwarming and I would recommend it to anyone.

Three months have passed since the events of The Wrong Woman. Saskia is now working part-time with Jaiden, who is struggling to hide her feelings for her new friend and coworker. Saskia thought Jaiden was flirting with her when she invited her to work "undercover", and she's frustrated that their private investigations have never wandered even remotely close to the erotic. Neither Jaiden nor Saskia have had much luck with love. But when they finally kiss, it feels different...passionate...and unconditional.

Kate is a rapidly rising star of the trauma therapy world - London based, shy, uptight, and with an air of aloofness that masks a deep sense of insecurity. When she has to relocate her "Traumatology for the 21st Century" conference to Horton Hill "Deluxe" Hotel and Conference Centre in the heart of industrial West Yorkshire, she is understandably horrified by the state of the place.

With the arrival of Courtney Carrington, Margaret's youth sparked into color. But first loves can scar. Margaret hasn't seen Courtney in years and that's for the best. But when Courtney loses her father and returns to Tanner Peak to take control of the family store, Margaret comes face-to-face with her past and the woman she's tried desperately to forget. The fact that Courtney has grown up more beautiful than ever certainly doesn't help matters.

outstanding , engaging, heartwarming story. you will fall in love with each and almost every character. I was kinda wondering how two people can just be so perfect. I was happy to find out that everyone has issues. Melissa takes her time and develops her story in such an intimate way. ..your going to be happy with just enough frustration to make you not want to turn the story off. Yup Its that good. Trust me, you will get invested as I did from chapter one.
hope you go and get a copy now..

I have to tell you, I laughed out loud, I teared up, I held my breath, and wanted to jump forward to make sure Kate wasn't messing her life up. The fast pace was something I normally don't enjoy But the way Melissa wrote the story line .. I had no choice but enjoy every moment. it was fun, and whimsical, you cant help but smile at Autumn and Kate's energy.
This is truly a book series your gonna want to own. The supporting Characters were amazing as always. I cant wait till see if the last two ladies of this family find love, they so deserve it..
So, again amazingly impressive Book it's a must own.
