“Breakfast Tea & Bourbon,” a contemporary adventure novel, is based around Nelson Moun, who “plunks down $5,000 to join a charitable treasure hunt with a $50,000 prize. Believing he has solved the mystery, he straightaway enlists four friends to co-pilot an RV dubbed ‘the beast’ and retrieve the treasure,” according to the book’s website.
But the intrigue doesn’t stop there. Tucked away into the words of the fiction novel are clues leading to a real-life treasure hidden somewhere in the U.S. worth $50,000. In addition to the $50K, the reader who unravels the mystery will have $5,000 donated to his or her charity of choice.
The Minnesota author and mastermind behind the treasure hunt within a treasure hunt is Pete Bissonette, president of Learning Strategies, the Minnetonka-based publishing company.
The quest begins on Thursday, February 9, 2017, at 5:08pm U.S. Central Time. (Hmm, is that a clue?) “My advice is to first leisurely read the book and full-on enjoy the story,” Bissonette recommends on the website. “Then go through the book again, searching for what could be clues. Stay positive and imaginative. Someone is bound to find the treasure, and that someone may as well be you.”
