cause you to put the book down As I mentioned before the blurb had been written, Tiffany Reisz had stated this was based on a true story She touches on those facts at the end of the book The amount of research and details to bring this to life had to be extensive It was all worth it This is a stand alone novelhowever, in my heart of hearts I would love to seeabout Paris and Cooper.and with Ms Reisz fertile imagination.one never knows Before Reading I am in shock right now as I just received the nod to read this So very excited 2 2016When I first heard of this from a short comment giving just a hint of this book being based on a true tale about Kentucky Bourbon, I immediately started searching news articles etc to try to get an idea of what Ms Reisz could be working on I read profiles of the Jack Daniels company and all of the shenanigans the original family and new owners were doing I learned of how this company was structured, how birthright and gender played a serious roleIt gave me food for thought but not a true picture of what Ms Reisz s intentions wereAh, but now we have the Blurb the Holy Grail of what she has deemed fit to tantalize us withTo hint at the possibilities and have the clear understanding of how deep this tale will goFor it is the way of Reisz to tease, cause wonder and then so artfully deliver her vision.I am a patient person, Ms Reisz.work your magic, weave your taleJune 2016 will be here soon enoughand I will be ready.
