Drinks with Reads: T.R. Ragan's Furious

T.R. Ragan joins us today to match her new book, Furious, with three new drinks for a Mystery Playground drinks record. So many wonderful drinks to choose from. 

Faith McMann comes home to a nightmare: her husband is killed and her son and daughter are taken. Although the intruders leave her for dead, she survives. Crippling grief and fear for her children make life unbearable. Until her anguish turns to anger…and she trades victimhood for vengeance.

Frustrated with the law’s efforts, she takes action to rescue her children—and wreaks havoc on the brutal criminals who tore them from her. With her family and newfound allies at her side, Faith descends into the hellish underworld of human trafficking, determined to make those who prey on the innocent pray for mercy.

The forces she’s up against have already proven that their ruthlessness knows no bounds. And there’s nothing they won’t do to turn Faith’s crusade into a suicide mission. But they’re about to learn that nothing is more dangerous than a mother fighting for her children—especially one who’s earned the nickname Furious.

A dark drink to go with a dark world. Enjoy!

  1. The inner beast of mom has been released. Great drinks.

  2. That sounds like a really good book! I wish I had more time to read! Thankfully I always have time for a drink and all three of your recipes look so good, I'm going to have to make my boyfriend make one (or two) for us soon!

  3. All 3 drinks sound great and the book even better. This one goes on the TBR pile for sure!

  4. This Book sounds excellent, and I can't decide which drink to try first.

  5. I can literally sit down to a good book and drink thanks to this post. : )

  6. Rum and Pineapple juice... Say no more :) oh did someone say books ;)

  7. This looks great! Nothing better than a good book and a good drink!
