Jase and Julie have to find a way to give their whiskey lullaby a happy ending.


I read this book as a beta reader.  

I enjoyed the story of Jase and Julie which is a story of first love, passionate love, love lost, and second chances. It grabs you from the beginning with Jase breaking Julie’s heart and Julie, understandably, leaving town.

You end up feeling sorry for Jase even though he’s the one who screwed up. He falls apart when Julie leaves and spends the next 9 years at the bottom of a bottle. When Julie comes back, he becomes a different man, a good man, one most of us only dream of having around. He proves that people can change if they truly love someone. This is a refreshing love story with a little suspense and a lot of passion.

I highly recommend Whiskey Lullaby if you like a good love story.  Available on Amazon.
