Death by Bourbon Virtual Book Tour and Giveaway

Thank you for stopping at my spot on Death by Bourbon Virtual Book Tour. This Virtual Book Tour is brought to you by First Rule Publicity. I will provide you with a synopsis of the book, review, and a small bio from Abigail Keam. Visit the other blogs on this Book Tour to learn more about this book.

Death by Bourbon by Abigail Keam 

Life takes a dramatic turn for Josiah when she witnesses a death at an engagement party for guess who . . . Matt.  Matt?  Yes Matt.

Charming socialite Addison DeWitt falls into a fit after taking a sip of bourbon.  That would be upsetting enough but Josiah is sure it is murder. However, no one will believe her except for Lady Elsmere and Meriah Caldwell, the famous mystery writer.  The three of them conspire to bring the murderer to justice.  It turns out that the suspect is always three steps ahead of them.

To make matters worse, Josiah's daughter, Asa, decides to move to London, Franklin leaves town and Jake starts singing a different turn.  Josiah doubts her ability to meet the future alone.  Maybe it's time to sell the Butterfly and move to Florida with the rest of the old folks.

My Review:

What a great story!  I really enjoyed Abigail's writing, and her character descriptions.  I also liked that there was more than one thing going on in the story. I wish I had read the books leading up to this one.  This book can stand alone, I just liked the people in the book and want to know what happened before and can't wait to see what is around the corner.

Josiah was at a engagement party when Addison DeWitt dies from what seems like a heart attack. But does he?  Things just don't seem to add up.  How did Doreen know it was her husband when the women were not in the room and the men were crowded around the body.  What was she doing standing at the top of the stairs watching everyone leave after taking a sedative and should have been sleeping and what was the pill found in the heat vent? What was the icky feeling that Josiah had while in the living room while she watched when they tried to revive Addison?   Josiah was going to help find out what happened to Addison. 

You will want to read this page turning book to find out what really happened.  Like me I am sure you will not want to put the book down until you have gotten to the last page, and like me you will want to read some of the other books in the series.
