Book Review – “Breakfast, Tea & Bourbon” eBook was published in 2017 and was written by Pete Bissonette. This appears to be Mr. Bissonette’s first book.
I received an ARC of this novel through https://www.netgalley.com in return for a fair and honest review. I categorize this novel as ‘G’ (as far as I read). The primary character is Nels Ware who sets off with four friends in search of a hidden treasure. He has looked at the clues and thinks he knows the location. Off they go in a dilapidated RV to retrieve the $50,000 and have a lot of fun along the way.
I gave this book about 40 minutes of my time and reached the 17% point when I just had to call a ‘Rule of 50’ on it. By that point they were on their way and had only accomplished drinking. Beyond two drink recipes where the primary ingredient was Bourbon, and a recipe for making olive spread, the story had really gone no where.
Usually by the 10% point at least you know the basic plot and the antagonists. This book had sounded interesting when I read the abstract. I was disappointed. Oh, and there are clues in the story that are supposed to lead you to find a real $50,000. The cover art is OK. I give this novel a 2 out of 5.
