Clues woven into Pete Bissonette's new novel “Breakfast Tea & Bourbon” will guide you to a hidden real treasure of $50,000.
Breakfast Tea & Bourbon
a novel
(and a treasure hunt)
After experiencing enough losses for a lifetime, Nels Ware does not take things for granted, especially his family of friends. So when a $50,000 treasure hunt grabs his attention, he recruits them for the rollicking quest.
Nels is certain he has deciphered the clues to the treasure’s location. But has he? Is he leading his friends on a cross-country wild-goose chase? Can their dilapidated RV even deliver them to the treasure? Or will someone else beat them to it?
A reader will find a $50,000 treasure
Woven within the pages of the novel are clues leading to an actual treasure hidden in the United States worth $50,000.
While any serious puzzle person would find delight in studying the book and solving its clues, it is quite likely an average reader will read the book and say, “I think I know where it is! Let's go get it!”
Breakfast Tea & Bourbon is an adventurous fiction novel, an intriguing puzzle and treasure hunt, and a guide for those looking for a more meaningful and joyous life.
Breakfast Tea & Bourbon was written and created by Pete Bissonette, president of Learning Strategies, a personal development training and publishing company. In his new novel Pete shows a way to inner joy and happiness through an outer game that demands from creativity, ingenuity, and resourcefulness. It's a free-spirited novel, a treasure hunt with a substantial cash prize, and a road-trippers guide to the universe.
