For Love & Bourbon by Katie Jennings is a romantic suspense set along Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail. For many years, the Brannon family's distillery has been the best in the area. When Ava Brannon becomes the new face of Lucky Fox Whiskey, she dedicates her life to preserving her family's legacy. But when Special Agent Cooper Lawson starts investigating her father and his ties to the Irish Republican Army, Ava is forced to face her family's deadly secrets buried deep within their past. Of course nothing is as clear cut as it seems, so Ava is drawn deeper into her family's past and secrets. Having hunky Cooper nosing around isn't helping either, and Ava finds herself easy distracted by his good looks and charm. She finds herself falling for him. She's losing herself in the family's mysterious history...and in her sensational desire for Cooper.

For Love & Bourbon is a well-written story that has everything I look for in a romantic suspense. Good story. Great secrets and plot twists. Hunky male lead role but, of course, a reason the heroine can't immediately fall in love with him. I also loved the setting of this story and the fact that it is wrapped around Kentucky Bourbon. I thought that was a nice historical twist that really made this story feel very authentic and believable. And who doesn't love a story that includes bourbon? Great story, nice setting, fantastic characters.
