Whiskey Chaser (Bootleg Springs Book 1) by Lucy Score
Raised by her three overbearing brothers, Scarlett is a hell-raising tomboy with a tool belt. A tornado stirring up trouble everywhere she goes. Her favorite pastimes? Drinking any man under the table and two-stepping. But she has zero interest in love. Scarlett’s only being neighborly when she claims her sexy next-door neighbor as her new pet project.
Devlin is a man at rock bottom. Marriage, political career, five-year plan to Washington, D.C. All destroyed with one well-placed jab. The golden boy is now the black sheep relegated to Bootleg Springs, a tiny West Virginia town with two claims to fame: 1. Moonshine and 2. The cold case disappearance of a teen girl.
Devlin just wants to lick his wounds. But Scarlett has other ideas for his tongue… and the rest of him. She’s determined to bring him back to life, even if getting him back on his feet means never seeing him again. But when an old mystery becomes new news, she’ll need his help to survive the scandal.

I love reading book series that take place in small towns. There is something there that keeps dragging me every time, and Bootleg is no different.
Scarlett Bodine is your favorite cowgirl, alongside her 4 brothers. One of them has recently surfaced after their daddy passed.
Devlin McKallister has run away from his life and is hiding in his grandma’s house until the gossip around his political life settles down. He is in the middle of his divorce and is trying to find himself. Along comes Scarlett, with her charming accent and vivacious personality… and he’s finding himself gravitating around her.
The first book of the series deals with a missing person case that we will find more during the series. I love and hate this because I am too curious about it, but at the same time, it’s not like it’s a cliffhanger.
Their chemistry is off the hook, and I can’t wait to find out more about the Bodines, because they are funny characters. This is for certain a series I will read ‘til the end.
