When it comes to murder, sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

Ten years after leaving the small town of Gett, Florida, for Hollywood stardom, Charlotte "Charms" Lucky, who has never quite lived up to her surname, returns home to run the Lucky Whiskey distillery while her grandfather recovers from a heart attack.

Making whiskey is harder than Charlotte imagined, especially with longtime rivals and resentful townsfolk interfering at every turn. She'll need more than a lucky charm to keep the family afloat, after she discovers her former high school boyfriend's pickled corpse in a Lucky Whiskey cask, and her grandfather is arrested for the murder.

Charlotte has one shot to clear his name and save the family business, and that is to find the real killer among a town full of suspects.

Re: A Shot of Murder

My favorite whiskey is Johnny Walker Black, neat. And I definitely think that whiskey goes very well with reading. At least it has worked very nicely for me.

If it's not coffee and throw blanket it's a few shots of
whiskey with a good book. Definitely have to read yours!

sounds interesting

Very interesting post. I hope your books contain the same sense of
humor and snarky attitude this post did. We live in Tennessee. The
home of Mountain Dew and Jack Daniels.I was a librarian for years
at a small county library. The books most stolen here have to do
with witch craft (for private collections) and books like Harry Potter
and those on evolution ( censorship by theft). We replaced Harry
Potter Book One 10 times and had many complaints about
indoctrinating the children in Satan's ways. They also complained
about graphic novels. How dare we put graphic things on the
shelves for young people. Of course they had no idea what graphic
novels were.
Anyway, my favorite whiskey is Bushmill's Irish Whiskey. I love to fix
Irish coffee.
A SHOT OF MURDER sounds good, but I do prefer my whiskey
without the added ingredient found in theirs.

I have to admit...7 & 7. Seagram's Seven Crown and 7 Up.

What an interesting and eye-opening article. I
even learned a new word which I am thrilled to
add to my vocabulary. That word is
I agree with many things stated in this
article, however, being Canadian, I have to
agree to disagree with the spelling of the
word whisky. It doesn't need the extra "e".
Amie Gaudet 2:22pm April 10, 2019)

Oops, I forgot to mention my favorite brand of
whisky. It is "CC" which stands for "Canadian

Loved the wacky humor! Single malt Highland Scotch,
preferably Glenmorangie Lasanta. Dalmore or Dalwhinnie are
also good.
Karen Krack 2:33pm April 10, 2019)

To determine my favorite whiskey brand, I would have to mix whiskies up with a
lot of ginger ale, a lot of fruit (pineapple and/or cherries?), a lot of crushed ice,
and then top it with a little paper umbrella.

I have tried Whiskey a few years ago. It is something that is very smooth if you get the right kind. Look forward to reading this book
Cynthia St. Germain 4:48pm April 10, 2019)

favorite whiskey is Tullamore Dew.

I've always drank Jack Daniel's Whisky and either 7up,
Gingerale, or Mountain Dew! Love the post and comments with all the surge of mixed drinks! A Shot Of Murder sounds like
a great cozy read for the summer, especially with a mixed
drink while reading!
Rebecca Booth 5:32pm April 10, 2019)

sounds like an interesting book - funny you are from Ohio -
my family all lives there (I do not) and I want to move to
Colorado - which I love - I've also been a bartender - you
learn alot about people

Margaret Yelton 3:36am April 11, 2019)

Can't wait to read your book.....Sounds Amazing! And of
course, with a few shots of Jack Daniel's! Also, as far
as whiskey being the state beverage of Alabama, it truly
is! My family is from there and it's a "Must Have" on a
daily basis! Whiskey helps in so many ways and I think
reading books and drinking a few shots make the Perfect
Sharon Hickman 10:30am April 11, 2019)
