New author Joy Allyson has captured the hearts of us Tennesseans with her novel, Whiskey Love. She writes historical novels with passionate and strong female characters. In her words, “her favorite characters are rebel heroines and salvageable scoundrels.”
Her first novel, Whiskey Love, pits distillery owners Chloe Tanner and Penn Kittrel against one another. Chloe’s headstrong nature won’t let her fail after unexpectedly inheriting her family’s distillery. Penn reveals her naivety in business informing her she’s being swindled.
She rises to the challenge and wins. Penn congratulates her. “You’ve saved your company, Chloe—now comes the hard part. Let’s see if you can run it.”
With the picturesque setting of the hills of Tennessee and early Nashville along with the historical accuracy of whiskey distilling and a trip to the state capitol fighting over water rights, this novel has adventure, suspense, and romance all rolled into one great read.
