Overview

Welcome to Mayhem, Minnesota, home of the Knitty Kitty, The Little Slice of Heaven Pie Shop, and O'Halloran's Pub-owned by the four young women known as The Whiskey Sisters.


In the wake of her divorce, Jameson O'Halloran has gone man-vegan. And this is one diet she's determined to stick with. Even when her long-lost ex-brother-in-law shows up looking like two scoops of double dutch dipped in chocolate... She's not giving in. Been there and still wearing the messy T-shirt.


It's been a decade since Scott Clarke left his family and his hometown, never to return. But when tragedy strikes, he finds himself dragged back to the land of gossip, judgment, and the one woman he absolutely, positively, without a doubt can never have. His brother's ex is off-limits. He just needs to keep repeating that to himself until it sinks in.

Mischief and Mayhem is the second book in the Whiskey Sisters series by L.E. Rico. It was great to be back in Mayhem! This is Jameson's story. After divorcing her 'winner' of an ex-husband, she's done with guys for now, and you gotta give the girl credit... She puts up a good fight when Scot comes back to town. These two have a history though. Not a romantic history necessarily and not just because he's her ex-brother-in-law. Their history is cuter than that, and I liked getting glimpses into how they first met as children and some of their earlier memories of one another. I think they had things figured out better as children than as adults. *wink* Like the first book in this series, Mischief and Mayhem is super fun with super fun characters! I enjoyed getting lost in Mayhem again, and I can't wait to do it again in the next book! The ARC of Mischief and Mayhem by L.E. Rico was kindly provided to me by the publisher for review. The opinions are my own.

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? Scott left his hometown because of family problems. Now that he's back he has trouble adjusting. He never got along well with his brother and finding out that Win's ex-wife is single again makes Scott feel things he's never felt before. However, he can't date his brother's ex-wife or can he? When Scott and Jameson spend time together sparks fly, but would it be a good idea to give in to them if Jameson wants to keep her promise to herself and if Scott will leave again? Will they be able to resist temptation or are their feelings too strong to walk away from? Mischief and Mayhem is a wonderful romantic story. Jameson is a strong and determined woman. She's a great mother, she's a caring and protective sister and she's a sweet daughter-in-law. Her ex-husband hurt her, but he hasn't broken her and I admired her strength. When Jameson meets Scott she knows she's in trouble. Especially since he's living abroad and doesn't intend to stay. Scott is a kindhearted and chivalrous man. He has such a lovely personality, but he's also a troubled soul. I couldn't wait to find out if Scott and Jameson would be able to heal each other's hearts. Fate offers them a chance and discovering if they'd take it kept me glued to the pages. L.E. Rico has a lovely heartwarming writing style. I love the Whiskey Sisters, they're all fabulous. Jameson is part of a great family and I really enjoyed reading about them again. L.E. Rico skillfully describes the relationships between her main characters. She perfectly understands friendship, true love and family and the result is a well balanced story with many fabulous twists and turns and an adorable ending. Mischief and Mayhem is a terrific charming, captivating and tempting story.

Oh Scott and Jameson how I loved your story! From the prologue to the end, all I thought was, "Awwww!" and how would we journey to that end. Their storyline took a surprising twist and different plot than I would have guessed. Nothing bad, but different. Their connection was sweet and genuine, simply cute. Throw in a little boy is as cute as can be, then does what no adult is able to do and he steals the show. I have true respect for how the writer made Scott and Jameson play out their scenes with Win, by taking the high road and letting him hang himself with his words and actions. Another amazing story with the Whiskey sisters! I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

I'm packing to move to Mayhem. I love the Whiskey Sisters and man did I take a header into this book! I loved Scott and Jameson. Scott Clarke left Mayhem 10 years ago and hasn't been back after a falling out with his father. He's traveling the world working basically as an NGO helping do whatever needs to be done. Meanwhile his brother Win has married and now divorced Jameson. They are co-parenting their son Jackson who is a pip! The toddler has his own lingo and happily I understood exactly what he was saying. Wonder what that says about me? When Big Win suffers a massive stroke, and on life support, Doc tells them that James is the second name listed on the health care surrogate form. Win is not the first. His brother Scott is. That makes Win really angry, not that the jack hat needed anything to make him contrary, the guy was just an all around dipwick. When they locate Scott, he dreads coming home, but he's also determined to discover the truth about who he is and the illusive clue his mother left him before she died. Win being Win won't help him, meanwhile Scott and Jameson grow closer and dang if that didn't just push all the right buttons for me. I loved them together. The guy has been living in third world countries for 10 years, no idea what a smart phone is, who certain celebrities are and what's been going on in the town of Mayhem; land of KnittyKitty, priests dispense love advice like a Pez dispenser and pies. Those magical pies. And then O'Halloran sisters! This book had so much going on in it. Goopa is the bomb!! Another lesson, never cross a sister! Then there's little Jackson. I loved the way the book opened. That was a classic I won't soon forget. I love the way Lauren weaves a story together and wow did she push my buttons in this one... had a little book hangover after reading this. Lauren, you hit this right out of the park! Thank you! **advanced reader copy from NetGalley and Entangled for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own**

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 her son. When her long-lost ex-brother-in-law shows up looking like sex on a stick she’s still not giving in. She’s been there and still wearing the messy T-shirt. After a ten year absence, Scott returns to Mayhem only because his father falls ill. After a lifetime of fights with his brother, Scott knows that despite his attraction to Jameson she is off-limits. I loved the interaction between the sisters as they work together, support and love each other. Scott and Jameson have a wonderful friendship as they work together to find solve a mystery regarding the brothers. I also loved the town of Mayhem and how they are in everyone’s business; such a small town thing. I especially enjoyed the Pie Lady who had visions of the future and memories of the past. I live in the capital city of Minnesota and enjoyed the way Ms. Rico included many of the quirks and traditions of the State Fair. Yes, the butter sculptures, cheese curds, and food-on-a-stick are real things. Ms. Rico wrote a wonderful story that drew me into her book and the lives of her characters, making me forget the world around me. I had trouble putting this book down, turning page after page, not letting go until I turned the last page, still wanting more. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

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 general. But, Scott is not like any other man. He is sweet and he is considerate; the exact opposite of his brother. Perhaps that's why she feels the way she feels. Both are scared of their complicated pasts and current situation, however, one thing is for, sure they may not be able to keep their feelings hidden for long... It's a very well written novel and has some very interesting characters. I quite enjoyed the story and would recommend to all contemporary romance fans.
