Unintentional stowaway, young Alexandria fell into the heart of Prohibition's underworld--and Jake McKenzie. Alex, the flaming redhead, thrilled to the risks of run running, speeding over the waters and evading the law between Canada and Washington State. But when she caught the eye of Antonio, the head of the Italian Mafia intent on taking over the Northwest Territory, excitement turned perilous. Decades later, details of Antonio's murder still haunt her. And Jean, the college student Alex hires to tame her garden, soon wonders whether this older feisty, in-command woman has more sinister plans than simple yard work. Set in the 1970s, stepped with research of the bootlegging era, Whiskey Cove portrays the tumultuous times of changing society ruled by the unquenched demand for booze and the law that worked both sides.
