Publisher's Summary

Once a struggling community of Irish immigrants, Lake Erie's Whiskey Island has a past as colorful as the patrons who frequent the Whiskey Island Saloon. A local gathering place for generations, the saloon is now run by the Donaghue sisters, whose lives and hearts have been shaped by family tragedy and a haunting mystery. When an act of violence sets the wheels of fate in motion, Megan Donaghue, a woman unwilling to trust in love, and Niccolo Andreani, a man unwilling to trust in himself, are determined to learn the truth about one fateful night in the family's long-forgotten past. As an old man struggles to protect a secret as old as Whiskey Island itself, a murder that still shadows too many lives is about to be solved...with repercussions no one can predict.

Emilie Richards is the best!

I've read her happiness key series and the shanandoah quilt series. I loved Whiskey Island the characters were very believable and midwestern. I love the Irish catholics in this part of the country. She goes from the present to a family history story from the prohibition The history was impeccable she must have researched the era of prohibition. It's much cleaner than most "romance" novels and not nearly as dry as a lot of historical fiction. Emily uses a pefect blend of each with a lot of suspense thrown in. Loved this book.
