About The Whiskey Sea
- Publisher: Lake Union Publishing (August 23, 2016)
When Silver sells his fishing boat to WWI veteran Sam Hicks, thinking Sam would be a fine husband for Frieda, she’s outraged. But Frieda manages to talk Sam into teaching her to repair boat engines instead, so she has a trade of her own and won’t have to marry.
Frieda quickly discovers that a mechanic’s wages won’t support Bea and Silver, so she joins a team of rumrunners, speeding into dangerous waters to transport illegal liquor. Frieda becomes swept up in the lucrative, risky work—and swept off her feet by a handsome Ivy Leaguer who’s in it just for fun.
As danger mounts and her own feelings threaten to drown her, can Frieda find her way back to solid ground—and to a love that will sustain her?

My Thoughts:I enjoy reading historical fiction - I like the history aspect, I like the people, I like the simpler times. Author Ann Howard Creel captures all theses crucial pieces of the pie in her new book, "The Whiskey Sea," and presents a perfect book for the fall reading season.
I really enjoyed the fast-paced storyline of this story of the Prohibition-era 1920s, and I loved the relationship between the two Hope sisters, Frieda and Bea. There is intrigue, romance, and action all rolled into this story and I was genuinely sad to see it come to an end when I reached the final page.
Fans of historical fiction will find "The Whiskey Sea" to be a great read, as will fans of romantic fiction as well. I highly recommend it!
