This is The Godfather Part 2 meets Upstairs/Downstairs, if either was set in Bourbon distillery country! Told from the perspective of the female horticulturist (landscape gardener) who has caught the eye of one of the sons of the super wealthy family who own the distillery. But life begins to unravel when the bodies start to pile up and the money isn't where it's supposed to be. Like in The Godfather, the responsibility falls on the shoulders of the idealistic younger son to take up the reins of a corrupted empire and rebuild it. But without a slush fund as a foundation, does he have the skill and experience to do it the hard way or will he fall into the traps set by his father before he can unravel the mystery of what his father was up to and where all the money went. A fast-paced and intriguing read.
