    One thought on “Death By Bourbon”

    1. I think I could stretch this rating up to 3.5 stars because overall I did like this one. It was an interesting read with an ending that I didn't expect. Josiah was apparently injured by a criminal in an earlier book. We are given bits and pieces of that story along the way. She is also involved with Jake, who thought he was divorced but never really was. But back to the mystery, we are introduced to the killer in the very begining of the book. The reader is privy to the who and the why but the d [...]

    2. This is the first book I've read by this author, Abigail Keam. In the beginning as I was reading this book I found it a bit difficult to follow. People just showed up in the story with no background information, and I thought; "Who are you, and where did you come from?" Suddenly! I had a 'light bulb' momentIt dawned on me this is the fourth book in a series, therefore all these characters would have been explained, and introduced somewhere along the line in those other three books, which I hadn' [...]

    3. Death by Bourbon is the 4th book in the Josiah Reynolds Mysteries. Because this was the first book I've read in the series it was hard to follow at first, since not a lot of details were given about characters, they would just arrive on the page as if I were supposed to know them - which if I had read the books in the intended order I'm sure that wouldn't have been a problem. However, I didn't give this book 2 stars for that, since it's my fault I read it out of order not the author's. I actuall [...]

    4. I really like this series, though I read this one, number 4, quite awhile after reading number 1 and that was a mistake. They really do depend on each other in order to make total sense of characters as well as story lines, so now I'm reading no. 2. If I were not a resident of Lexington, KY, I am not sure that I would find these quite so appealing, as it's always more fun when reading fiction to be able to think I've eaten there or I've driven down that road. That aside, they are interesting mys [...]

    5. At the engagement party for her best friend, Matt, and the novelist, Meriah Caldwell, Josiah Reynolds sees socialite, Addison Dewitt, take a sip of bourbon, go into fits and then die. The police, and just about everyone else, call it a heart attack, but Josiah feels the whole situation is ‘icky.’ She can only get Lady June Elsmere and Meriah to believe her, so the three of them take it upon themselves to smoke the killer out.While she’s dealing with this new mystery, Josiah also has to cop [...]

    6. This is the first book by this author I have read, which was probably a mistake. I found it hard to follow the characters and the story. I also found it hard to follow the main character. It wasn't until well into the book that I realized Josiah is a female. I was wondering how everything fit. I would like to read earlier books to get a sense of the whole picture.

    7. Well everything was quick about this book. Jake leaving, Matt marrying, Franklin leaving, the end result to the murder. I guess this is my least favourite book in the series. Josiah did not even get to prove who the killer was. Not put off though next book already to go.

    8. Abigail Keam in her new book, “Death By Bourbon” Book Four in the Josiah Reynolds Mystery series published by Worker Bee Press brings us another mystery to be solved by Josiah Reynolds.From the back cover: Life takes a dramatic turn for Josiah when she witnesses a death at an engagement party for guess who . . . Matt. Matt? Yes Matt.Charming socialite Addison DeWitt falls into a fit after taking a sip of bourbon. That would be upsetting enough, but Josiah is sure it is murder. However, no on [...]

    9. Death By Bourbon, a Josiah Reynolds mystery (Book 4)by Abigail KeamI'd taken a break in this series and I'm glad I did. I came back to it with a cleared mind and found either Keam wrote a better novel than last time around, or I was just more in an accepting frame of mind regarding the main character, the irascible Josiah Reynolds.We get a bit more backstory in this novel, with a few flashbacks to the time when her husband, Bannon, left her, taking most of their money, much of her jewelry, and a [...]

    10. This book starts in the past; Asa is home from her "adventure;" and Josiah and Brannon are still together; I was immediately hooked b/c I like Asa so much. However, this book was not so much a standalone. In the previous two books, a quick synopsis was given, or at least people came into the book and it felt like a new reader to the series would understand the character's presence. Not so much for this story. It's beginning to feel like I made a good choice in reading the series beginning to end [...]

    11. Review originally posted atA Date with a Book .I choose to review this book because it was a cozy mystery. I am very glad I did. This book is the fourth book of a series and while I knew I was missing some of the back story, I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery. I will definitely go looking for books one thru three.This book was a quick read as the pages turned very quickly. I loved the quirkiness of the characters and the main character Josiah was excellent. I love cozy mystery series that continu [...]

    12. As my loyal readers know, I am a big fan of stories with strong women. Josiah Reynolds and her friends are definitely that. Over the previous three books Josiah has been thrown off a cliff; her husband left her, taking off with all of her money; and her daughter became a professional thief. But she is a survivor and manages to keep going and keep her Southern bearing through everything that life tosses at her.The first few chapters of Death by Bourbon were very confusing to me because the author [...]

    13. Josiah was recently in a life-threatening accident and needs a wheelchair or cane but that doesn't stop her from poking around to determine if Addison DeWitt was indeed murdered. Did his wife do it or was it his mistress? Or was it an accident or natural causes?I liked the writing style. It was a fast read. The majority of it is in first person in Josiah's voice. It is at times conversational and sarcastic. The numbered chapters are what's happening in the present and occasionally there is a ch [...]

    14. As always these are such great characters and wonderful stories!! I love a heroine that I can respect and who doesn't look like a super model and is more inline with today's woman.You can relate to Josiah's anger towards men, falling in love with someone she cannot have and great friendships with such colorful friends.The ending is a dozzie, didn't see it coming.

    15. Death by Bourbon is the fourth book in the Josiah Reynolds mysteries. That said, I haven't read the first three books in the series, so I went in blind. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't. This time, unfortunately, didn't. I was doing OK at first, but then all of these other characters started showing up and I didn't have a clue of who they were, where they came from and what they wanted. Did it take anything away from the plot? No, not really. It just took away some of my investmen [...]

    16. Charming and handsome Addison DeWitt takes a sip of bourbon at an engagement party and falls into a fit a few minutes later. Josiah thinks it was murder, but no one believes her except for her friends, Lady Elsmere and Meriah Caldwell, the famous mystery writer. The three of them try to outsmart the suspected murderer, but the killer is always three steps ahead of them in this fast-paced, witty and fun who-dun-it! Death By Bourbon is the fourth installment in the award-winning Josiah Reynolds my [...]

    17. Death by Bourbon is the 4th in a series of mysteries by author Abigail Keam and was the first I read in the series. That did cause a bit of a problem when certain circumstances were mentioned that threw me off a bit. That said I found this to be a fun story that I read in one afternoon. I enjoyed the authors writing style and the plot kept me interested in the story. Who was the killer?? The ending was unexpected, sure didn't see that one coming. I think I will have to go back and read the first [...]

    18. This is the fourth book in the Josiah Reynolds series. I DO NOT RECOMMEND READING IT WITHOUT READING THE FIRST THREE BOOKS, as the first few chapters will leave the reader quite confused.I love Josiah! She is a feisty woman, past her prime, with a great sense of humor, depth of character, an amateur detective, a beekeeper, recovering from catastrophic injury, and owner of The Butterfly ( her home).Yes, there is a mysterious death at an engagement party for her friend Matt. There is quite a bit o [...]

    19. I guess I should have started with the first book in the series; but this one was a free on so I decided to get it. But the structure of the story and it being the fourth in the series made it a little confusing to read. I didn't understand all that was going on and the changes in time confused me. The book would go back a few years and then come back to the present with no warning. The ending was very abrupt but I liked the twist at the end. I would recommend this book to people who like southe [...]

    20. This is the second Josiah mystery I have read. Not having read #2 and #3 in the series, I was at a disadvantage involving the main characters. I find myself liking Josiah and her supporting cast, and I'm not really sure why, except that she is a pull-herself-up-by-the-bootstraps kind of person, not choosing to wallow in her misfortunes. I also like the folklore history given about Kentucky. I think Keam does need to polish her writing style. The story just ends, almost as if Keam just decided to [...]

    21. This is the fourth in the Josiah Reynolds mystery series-Josiah Reynolds is a beekeeper selling honey at the Farmers' Market. She lives in a beautiful custom home/farm called The Butterfly. She finds herself involved in crime solving to the extent she is recovering from injuries received during one of her past "investigations" This was not my favorite in the series but I did like it enough I will probably download "Death By Lotto" when it is released.

    22. This book is #4 in the Josiah Reynolds series (explains why the main character starts off the story in a wheelchair recovering from serious injuries). Will need to read the first three for continuity.OK, I finished it. So disappointing Couldn't understand half of the action or who the characters were, undoubtedly explained in prior books in the series. I began to like the main protagonist by the end but not enough to read any more by this author.

    23. I had to read the first two chapters twice to figure out who was who and the time line. It wasn't very clear. I didn't like the ending, just made me very sad. This was my first time reading one of her books and I felt like I missed a book that introduced the characters. Took me a while to figure out who was who.

    24. Death by bourbon (4) was an interesting read, lots of moneyed people, the story starts and stops as it pulls info from previous (I am guessing) books. There is a death, a couple of Kentucky history lessons. The main character, Josiah, has to figure out who killed one of the husbands in her inner circle, while still trying to control her own life.

    25. Made it past the half-way point so I'm counting it as a read. The only excuse I can make is that this is #4 of the series and I had not read the first three. My mistake for thinking this might be a Stephanie Plum-type book where Janet E explains the back story EVERYtime she starts a new book in the series. I have NO idea what this story was about or who the characters were. Ugh.

    26. Death by bourbonthis was a fantastic book. it's scenery reminded me of the old country farm. I would have known what happened to Asa and her mother. I liked the way the events played out. Asa had had a very hard life I would liked for her to have founded happiness in the end. it gave me the sense that she very lonely.
