5 - "Wow… Just Wow." Stars!

We travel to Mayhem, Minnesota and get to know the Whiskey Sisters and believe me when I tell you they and the town they come from are unlike any family or place I have read about before, and in such a happy and positive way.

"This is something special you have here…"

Two books, and two novellas make up the sum of this series so far, and I devoured each and every one of them, it’s not often I find an author that can make me laugh, cry and fall in love with a group of fic

Complicated. If I only had one word to describe this book, this would be it. I cannot adequately describe the goodness of this story without giving away the good stuff, but here goes.

Jameson is a kind and caring individual. She’s a single mom to a handful little boy and she has an amazing support system. But she comes with baggage in the form of an idiot ex husband. A health issue with her ex father in law (who she is close to), forces Scott, her ex brother in law to come home an

I fell in love with the Whiskey Sisters series with the first book, Blame it on the Bet. The story had amazing characters and was a fun read. The second book, Mischief and Mayhem is different. It's more serious, which I wasn't expecting. The characters are still great, but it isn't as fun and there aren't nearly as many humorous parts. However, this isn't to say that the book wasn't good, because it was.

The Whiskey Sisters have made their own places in their town of Mayhem. Jameson, recently divorced, has started a diet, no, not that kind. Of the man variety. She's cut herself off after her marriage imploded but every diet allows for a "cheat" day, right? Jameson wasn't tempted until HE returns, but she's a determined woman and no one will break her control.

Scott left everything behind a decade ago, not caring for everything that goes with living in a small town. But now he's back, a family tra

It's a sweet and yet emotional story. Not every love story can be straightforward and this one is quite complicated because Jameson was once married to Scott's brother. But, he can't stop himself from having feelings for this woman. She is the most beautiful person he has ever met and as guilty as he feels for being attracted to his brother's ex-wife, he simply cannot help it.
Jameson is a mother, first and foremost, also after her divorce she has lost faith in her judgment as well as men in gene

I totally enjoyed Mischief and Mayhem by L.E. Rico, part of her Whiskey Sisters series. This is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Rico but will definitely not be my last. I loved that all four of the O’Halloran sisters were names after different brands of whiskey, which made sense since their father owned a bar in Mayhem, Minnesota. This story features Jameson who is trying to pulling her life together after her divorce while being on a strict avoidance of getting involved with any man other than ...more

Jameson's ex-husband Win has broken her heart and she's made a vow to remain single. She isn't interested in another relationship, especially after what she's been through. Jameson is a single mother with several loving sisters. Her son's grandfather also enjoys to help out, so there's plenty of support. When disaster strikes Jameson meets Win's brother Scott for the first time in years. Scott once made her an irresistible promise, but does he still intend to keep it?

Lots of mischief and even mayhem. I loved the story of Jameson and Scott. The Whiskey Sisters series is one I am definitely going to follow.

Jameson is a recent divorcee with a terror as a son. Well they say terror but goodness I bet he is the sweetest thing ever- he was written so mischevious you just know he was an adorable little chubby cheek boy you want to cuddle.

The ex is Win- Scott's brother, but things arent' as simple as that. With deception and deviousness Scott has wasted the last 10
Her divorce should have put her off men forever, but somehow Jameson O'Halloran finds herself deeply attracted to her ex brother-in-law, Scott Clarke, when he comes back to town after his father suffers a stroke. Unfortunately, Jameson and Scott know nothing can come of their attraction, especially when family secrets and the fact that she was once married to his brother are reasons enough to keep away from each other. Will Scott and Jameson fight for their shot at happy ever after or does too m ...more

Where do I start? I mean really. It’s like I waited FOREVER for this book in the series. If you want a recap of my review of Henny’s story here you go: Hennessey’s Review. So I won’t go into the sisters again in my review but let’s just say that they all play a very big part of this book and it is wonderful how Ms. Rico is able to use them in nonintrusive ways. Bailey and Jameson’s side plot is brilliantly played out, even if my heart broke a bit. Very realistically written and heartfelt. Rememb ...more

Mischief and Mayhem is a “sweet and clean” book – there is minimal mild cursing (no f-bombs) and no sex. If those things aren't your jam, there's nothing to worry about here. And even if you prefer those things in a book, this one has enough plot and good writing that you will not miss them. This is technically the second book in this series but it completely stands alone. You do not have to have read the other book to enjoy this one.

This is only my second L.E. Rico book, but as I read this one

​I'm really enjoying this series about the Whiskey sisters, set in Minnesota, and this one was even better than the first one which I also enjoyed.

This time we get the story of the second sister, Jameson, who runs and owns O'Hallorans with her sisters, the Irish pub in their town of Mayhem. She is recently divorced from Win and they have a small son called Jackson, a holy terror but very, very funny too!

Her father-in-law, Big Win, collapses and is rushed into hospital on life support in a coma.

Mischief and Mayhem is Book 2 in the Whiskey Sisters Series by L.E. Rico. It can be read as a stand alone however I’m looking forward to reading book 1 to get to know the support characters a little better.

I found it a little slow to start with but once I got to around 15% I couldn’t put it down.

Jameson is such a sweet, likeable character. She’s a single mother to Jackson and recently divorced. Her ex husband Win is a vindictive person who will stop at nothing to ensure she doesn’t end up with

I loved this second Whiskey Sisters book by L.E. Rico! Fantastic follow-up book to Blame it on the Bet! This series featuring four sisters (all of whom are named after whiskey), has humor, love, and heartbreak.

Jameson and her unfaithful ex husband (Winston) try to cope with his father's medical emergency and in the process they find out it is Win's estranged brother, Scott, who is his healthcare proxy. They find Scott doing charity work in a rural Mexico city, and he arrives home for the first

The O’Halloran sisters were great, and it was interesting to see all the sisters named after whiskey. Jameson and Scott were great together.

4/5 stars.

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys sweet small town romances with a little bit of drama and forbidden love mixed in.

Jameson and Scott were always destined to be. Even when time and distance separates them fate brings them together. I like the little bits of divine magic mixed into the plot. And all the little Siri conversations breaking up the chapters. This is the first book I read in the series so I think I did miss out on some of the backstory but not enough to ruin my en

How much do I love Mayhem? A whole lot - everything about this town and its residents just adds to the colour and the charm of this book. It is Jameson's turn to find love. Newly divorced, she is not in the market for anyone, let alone her ex-husband's brother but when Scott returns home to Mayhem the sparks fly between them. Scott has not been home for a really long time and the tension his absence has caused his family is palpable.

The whole quirkiness and fun of the town is contras

I was so excited to head back to the town of Mayhem! Only there would you find four sisters named after different kinds of whiskey.

I adored Jameson and Scott. She has had some hard times but remains so positive, and she is a great mother. Scott, after being gone a number of years, has returned home. The author did a great job with his character, and the family and romantic issues he deals with.

Just like the first book in the series, there are some hilarious moments. Especially with Scott's intro

This was a new author for me and so I have not read the first book in the series, but I started with this one. I was not disappointed at all. This was a very well-written story that was full of emotion along with some drama and very nice humor. The characters were well-developed and very interesting and likable. I got into the story very quickly and found it very hard to put the book down. That's how good it was. A story filled with love and emotion along with some humor made this book a winner ...more

Mischief and Mayhem is the second book I have read by L.E. Rico. It also happens to be the second book in the Whiskey Sister's series. I loved it. All the sisters are named from brands of Whiskey. They live in the city of Mayhem. They run their family pub.

Jameson is helping with her ex father in law's care as he is hospitalized and gets to reconnect with her brother in law. The relationship between Scott and Jameson is uniquely interesting. I could not put this one down.

I laughed...a lot. I cried, just a little and I was tremendously entertained throughout this wild madcap ride of a story. It was quirky, fun, sentimental and romantic. Filled with love, Friendship, family and community. I wish for more of these stories about the Whiskey Sisters and the town of Mayhem.

I have been given a review copy of this title through NetGalley and I have voluntarily decided to give my opinion. Mischief and Mayhem is the second book in the Whiskey Sisters series and each book in this series can be read as a standalone. This book just had me and just touched my heart. I truly loved this story and these characters and I’m so excited to see what next from this author.

This is the 2nd book in this amazing series and is Jameson and her ex brother-in-law Scott’s story. This is a well written story which is filled with quirky fun and entertainment which all lead to a humorous and romantic story.

A sweet and funny story. Ms. Rico has done a fantastic job of keeping a smile on my face with here creative use of child safe curse words and toddler speak. The teasing way in which Scott has to learn how to use the iPhone and be introduced to all the things he has missed around town since he has been gone is not to be missed. It is the little quirky details that she includes that makes this book such an exceptionally fun read.
