Whiskey stood there, on my doorstep, just like he had one year before. Except this time, there was no rain, no anger, no wedding invitation - it was just us.
It was just him - the old friend, the easy smile, the twisted solace wrapped in a glittering bottle.
It was just me - the alcoholic, pretending like I didn't want to taste him, realizing too quickly that months of being clean didn't make me crave him any less.
But we can't start here.
No, to tell this story right, we need to go back.
Back to the beginning.
Back to the very first drop.
This is my love letter to Whiskey. I only hope he reads it.

About the Author
Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her "freedom of press." She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn't working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine - not necessarily in that order.

Wow what a book hangover!!! This has got to be the BEST book I have read this year. A clever plot attributing a man's love to an addiction to whiskey. This book stole the heart from my chest and stomped on it several times but luckily Steiner mends that broken heart by the time the book is completed.
Once again, Kandi Steiner has written the very definition of a five star read. A Love Letter to Whiskey is complicated...and terrific (terrifically complicated?). The POV took a bit of getting used to, but it all made sense in the end. She wasn't even talking to me. The characters are strong and consistent. The story line is solid, broken, tragic and poetic. I absolutely love the premise.
This was only my second read by Ms. Steiner and she had my full attention throughout the entire book! I started on a Saturday morning, taking breaks throughout the day, and finished Sunday morning because once you start this book you HAVE to keep going to find out what happens next! My poor stomach was in knots, my nails are completely gone because I was so anxious about this story and at one point I had to stop and talk to my husband about it because I was just broken by what I read. In this book you meet Brecks/ B and her best friend Jenna who are in high school and they meet a boy named Jamie and they become a friendship of three. You watch the pull and push, the heart break and heart mend of young love evolving into more but never finding the right time. Ms. Steiner takes you through their high school, college and after college years trying to understand how to love. Ms. Steiner broke me many times and put me back together only to be broken a few chapters later. My heart was wrapped up into B and all she goes through, and at a young age what she has to face with her family was just overwhelming. I really had a love-hate relationship with B though and I wanted to scream, cry and punch her in the face many times while reading this book but I kept up hope that she would overcome herself and really understand what she felt. When I was reading about Jamie all I had for him was love, that was again until I got about half way through the book and wanted to throw my phone at the wall in disappointment. I had a strong case of whip lash with this book and I LOVED it! I will say that I was VERY disgusted during some parts of this book where there is cheating but I truly believe this book was written so well that I didn't bother me ask much as it could have. You will not be able to put this book down until you finish because you will be so wrapped up in the story that your sanity depends on finding out how the story ends. I had to know and my head was so torn from what happened before the end I started to cry because I just knew it wasn't ending how I wanted it to end, Ms. Steiner you wrote one heck of a book!!
