Welcome to Mayhem, Minnesota, where the cats wear sweaters, the local priest dispenses dating advice, and you can find your fortune in the bottom of a pie tin.

When her family’s pub is threatened with foreclosure, Hennessy O’Halloran, along with her three sisters, is determined to raise enough money to keep it out of the hands of the L.A. real-estate developer trying to raze it and replace it with a—god forbid!—multiplex theater.

Bryan Truitt always gets what he wants. And what he wants is the sweet corner property on Mayhem’s Main Street where O’Halloran’s Pub sits. But his “quick business” turns into more than he bargains for when he meets the feisty Hennessy. Next thing he knows, he’s betting her he can outlast Mayhem’s punishing winter in time to make the pub his—or he’ll gift it to her for free.

Hennessy knows better than to flirt with the enemy. But suddenly Bryan’s not sure which he wants more…the property or the woman who owns it.


Blame it on the Bet is the first book I’ve read written by Author L.E. Rico, it is a very clean and wholesome romance. We meet all the sisters in this first book in the series, Hennessey V.S., Jameson, Johnnie Walker Black and Bailey Irish are the Whiskey Sister’s their parents owned an operated O’Hallorans Pub and now the four sisters find out that they are about to lose the Pub in Foreclosure back to the bank. Bryan Truitt wants to buy the Pub to for a company who wants to tear it down and build a movie complex, the girls fight with everything they have to pay the loan back to the bank within the 5 weeks they have. Bryan likes Hennessy and she likes him too, to bad they want opposite things.

This is a laugh out loud wholesome book with Polka Mass at the catholic church, chili cook off’s and good down-home Minnesota hospitality. I lived in Minnesota for about 6 years and I felt that same sense of hospitality while reading this book as when I lived there.

Great read, going to start the next Whiskey Sister book at the end of this week.
