Blog Tour for Whiskey Reveals by Carrie Ann Ryan
About WHISKEY REVEALS (Whiskey and Lies #2)
One whiskey-saturated night turns into something far more in the second standalone installment of the bestselling Whiskey and Lies series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.
Fox Collins likes his life just the way it is. His siblings are falling in love all around him, but he’d much rather focus on his next story than on a serious relationship. However, when his latest one-night stand returns to Whiskey-this time for good-he’ll need to learn to trust his instincts to figure out if he can live without her in his life.
Former dancer Melody Waters is finally ready to settle down in her grandmother’s small Pennsylvania hometown. Bad decisions and fateful nights have changed her path more than once, but now she’s focused on one thing: opening her new own dance studio. But fate is a funny thing, and once again, she’ll be forced to learn that actions have consequences and some repercussions can not only change your life forever, they can also come back to haunt you…one broken promise at a time.
Each book is a complete stand alone and can be read in any order.

Book 2 in the Whiskey and Lies series is about the youngest brother, Fox, and a woman he met after having one too many whiskey shots one night in his brother’s bar.
Fox is a journalist, and owner of the local news paper. He seems, at times, to be self assured, confident in who he is, and at other times, it seems like he feels inferior to his brothers. Typical of a youngest brother, he looks up to them, and only sees how great they are, missing out on how much he has accomplished. But with Melody, he knows right away that he wants her. Their one night leads to unexpected feelings, that they aren’t sure what, if anything, they are going to do about.
Melody is a dancer down to her bones. When her actions in college lead to major changes in her life, she does a lot of thinking about who she is, where she is going with her life, and the consequences of choices she has made. All of these things lead her to her grandmother, and the small town she lives in. Moving to live with her grandmother also brings her back to the town that Fox lives in, and they are forced to admit that the sparks are still there.
This story is full of surprises! I loved how Fox and Melody are drawn together, and how well they seem to fit each other. I loved how I never knew what was coming next, and how exciting all of those surprises were. I couldn’t put this story down, and am looking forward to Loch’s story next!

Sparks fly between a former cop-turned-bartender and his new innkeeper in the first installment of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.
Dare Collins is a man who knows his whiskey and women—or at least that’s what he tells himself. When his family decides to hire on a new innkeeper for the inn above his bar and restaurant, he’s more than reluctant. Especially when he meets the new hire. But he’ll soon find that he has no choice but to work with this city girl and accept her new ideas and the burning attraction between them.
Kenzie Owens left her old life and an abusive relationship behind her—or so she thought. She figures she’ll be safe in Whiskey, Pennsylvania but after one look at her new boss, Dare Collins, she might still be in danger, or at least her heart. And when her past catches up with her despite her attempts to avoid it, it’s more than her heart on the line. This time, it might mean her life.

Fox was only twenty minutes into his work when he noticed someone he never thought to see again out of the corner of his eye. He turned, his gaze caught, and his attention enthralled with the woman picking up a to-go order.
Her long, blond hair fell in waves, and she wore tight-fitting jeans that showcased her luscious curves. She had on an elbow-length T-shirt that was tight around her chest and made him remember exactly what she looked like beneath those clothes. He’d tasted every inch of her, touched every curve. It had been in a whiskey-filled haze but he hadn’t minded one bit. He could still remember every single instant. Including the fact that she had left him alone in bed the next morning.
“Melody.” The word was out of his mouth and echoing in the loud room before he even knew he’d said it.
She turned, her eyes widening for a moment before she schooled her features into a pleasant smile.
“Fox. I should’ve known I’d see you at this bar again.” She held her to-go bag in one hand, and Fox pointedly ignored his brother giving him a look.
“I come here often. My brother is the owner. Remember?”
She gave him another of those sweet smiles that looked nothing like the sultry ones she had given him that night. “Sure I do. Well, it was nice to see you, Fox. As you can see, I came to get dinner. I shouldn’t let my food get cold. Have a good night.”
She turned on her heel and walked out of the bar as if she hadn’t just shown up out of nowhere after three months. He hadn’t even known she was back in town, let alone expected to see her in Dare’s bar. They hadn’t made any promises to each other. There had been no last names, no judgments, no backstories. But he knew almost every single person in his town who wasn’t a tourist, and Melody hadn’t been one of them. And yet, she was back and ordering food as if she had been here all along. Once again, he ignored his brother’s look and packed up his things. He wasn’t going to follow her, but he would go home and have some time to himself. He wasn’t in the mood for questions, didn’t feel like dealing with knowing looks and smiles. Because the best night of his life had just walked out the door. Again. And he still only knew her first name.
And from what he’d just seen, their night together hadn’t left the same impression on her.
Who knew an evening without whiskey could be so revealing.
