Author: R.L. Griffin
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cover Designer: Silver Plum Creations
Release Date: April 21, 2015
Sometimes the best things in life come from the unexpected. So if you lower your expectations, then you’ll never be disappointed. Sound cheesy? It is, but it's also true. Clichés come from a grain of truth…like a man with a Porsche is compensating for something, or once a cheater always a cheater—you get the idea. Sorry, I digress. I'm supposed to be telling you what this book is about.
I'm Megan Walker, a lawyer at one of the hottest boutique law firms in Atlanta. I'm on the fast track to making partner and have my entire life planned out...or I did.
We all know how that goes, right? Best laid plans and all that.
Life just threw me a couple curveballs, so I've set out to take things into my own hands. By throwing caution to the wind and getting out of my A-type personality bubble, I'm learning more about myself than I have in my twenty-seven years.
Sound like a chick flick, doesn't it?

Another 5* read from RL Griffin!!
I love this author's work, in my eyes she can do no wrong. am I biased? Maybe, but I don't care, she hasn't wrote a book yet that I've not loved and this latest is no exception.
As usual, and what I've come to expect, RL brings to life such wonderful and believable characters that you end up thinking of them as friends or wishing they really were your friends and find yourself wondering what they're up to long after their story has ended.
I really enjoyed the plot of Sunshine & Whiskey, it's different to what RL usually writes due to the fact it's a romantic comedy. I couldn't help laughing out loud at some of the drunk fuelled escapades of Megan and I actually related to a few of them but I'm not saying which ones!
Megan Walker, is a young lawyer on her way to the top - fast. She has her future planned out in front of her until a couple of things happen unexpectedly to change those plans, big style. It makes her look at her life and question the choices she's made and what she now wants for her future. Her best friend, Laura, has just become unemployed so they decide to take a break and go on an epic road trip stopping at places they've always wanted to visit, ending up at Napa Valley.
Their adventure isn't short of drink, drama and hilarious incidents and the two friends meet quite a few characters along the way who become memorable for one reason or another. I found myself shouting at my kindle a few times over Megan's snake of an ex, Chad and at a few of the decisions she made that I didn't want her to make. I loved Megan's blunt no-nonsense way she had about her. She made me laugh over her choice of words and phrases she used and I loved the relationship she and Laura had with each other. They were the best of friends and didn't let anything come between their friendship, well not for long anyway.
Now, I have to mention Walker AKA Magic and Meat. Did I forget to say that Megan gives some of the people she meets funny and very fitting nicknames? Magic, who is sex on legs, had me swooning and sighing when he entered the scene. However, I do have a soft spot for a certain muscled hunk with the nickname Meat! I don't want to say anymore as I may reveal spoilers.
Sunshine & Whiskey took me on a road trip packed with humour, passion and emotion-filled drama, and I honestly can't wait to see what happens next for Megan and the gang. If you're tired of the CEO billionaire/rocker/biker/MMA plots then give yourself a treat and 1-click Sunshine & Whiskey today, I can't recommend it highly enough!
R.L. Griffin published her first book in 2004. After that she focused on practicing law. A few years ago she began writing the By A Thread series, which is out now. Her goal is to keep readers on their toes, whether it's the plot twist or the book itself, her books are outside any box. There is a little bit of grit in most of her books and a ton of cussing. Most books are enjoyed better with a glass of wine, or whiskey, whatever your poison may be. She lives in Atlanta with her husband, kid and dogs. She loves to travel and meet readers.
