Whiskey Dream by Taryn Rivers ~ Review + Excerpt

Dreams can’t come true if you’re dead.

Rosalie
After spending my life fulfilling someone else’s dream, nothing will stop me from making my own come true in Whiskey Falls.
Not my parents who want me safely ensconced back home in Minnesota.
Not the sexy modern day viking who’s pursued me since I arrived.
And certainly not the gang trying to take out my sister and me.
They’re about to learn the hard way: I may act like a wallflower, but this rose has thorns.

That’s what my student, Miss Luna Hendrix, whispered to me the night I rescued her from a handsy boy from school.
