She returned to Cedar Creek to escape her mistakes, but the past followed her home.
Dani moved to Chicago to pursue her dreams, and one by one, she achieved them all: an exciting job, a beautiful house, and a handsome and adoring husband. But when his early morning arrest reveals that she’s really married to a Mafia hitman, Dani’s perfect life is shattered.
Divorced, unemployed, and almost bankrupt, Dani returned home to Cedar Creek, always looking over her shoulder in case the Mafia followed her home. But after two years have passed without incident, she’s finally started to believe she can let down her guard.
Then one fateful Friday night, she wanders into a bar, intent on forgetting her problems, if only for a night. But there are two men in the bar who make that impossible. One is her high school sweetheart, the one she left behind to chase her dreams in Chicago. The other is a stranger with an ominous grin that sends chills down her spine.
As Dani’s past closes in on her, she must fight for her own life and the lives of those she loves. Can she do what it takes to ensure their survival, even if it means sacrificing herself?
Welcome to the small town of Cedar Creek! Get to know the families, solve the mysteries, and prepare to fall in love…

Whiskey Flight by Violet Howe.
Contemporary romantic suspense. 1st in the series but connected to all the other series by the author which take place in Cedar Creek. In particular, if continuity is important to you, read the Cedar Creek mystery series beginning with The Ghost in the Curve and the two following before this book. It can stand alone as romantic suspense.
Danielle moved back to Cedar Creek to live in a family home when all her assets were frozen because of her ex-husband and his organized crime connections. Dani has reestablished connections in Cedar Creek and is home to stay. Maybe it’s time she forgives Seth, her onetime BFF, for not following her to Chicago.
Threats and fear burst in the door with a phone call from her ex. Someone is watching her and she needs to leave town immediately or everyone she cares about will be at risk.
Gripping storyline. Strong and supportive hero. The heroine...doing what she feels she has to in protecting her family. A little less screaming maybe but who knows how I’d react in a similar shoot out?
4.5. A little predictable but a riveting read.
