Death, Taxes, and a Skinny No-Whip Latte

Diane Kelly

It's all in a day's work for Tara Holloway, the U.S. Treasury's latest, greatest, soon-to-be-skinniest weapon against the biggest, richest tax cheats in the nation...

When she joined the Criminal Investigations Division, Tara knew she'd be investigating some very real crooks. Forget about waitresses hiding tips from the IRS or babysitters not declaring income! Tara and her partner, Eddie, are going after one of country's richest, dirtiest felons. Being on a diet doesn't help Tara's mood much. Hopefully, by the time the investigation is over, she'll be sitting somewhere in a string bikini, far, far away...

But first: Reality. Marcos Mendoza is a suspected loan shark with connections across the Mexican border. He's never been accused of any crimes, yet his business associates have a history of disappearing...and resurfacing...in body bags. Will Tara risk life, limb, and the pursuit of filing a joint tax return with her maybe-serious boyfriend Brett? Fighting crime, like drinking a cup of coffee with low-fat milk and artificial sweetener, is often bittersweet...

      • content:

        "Readers will find Kelly's protagonist a kindred spirit to Stephanie Plum: feisty and tenacious, with a self-deprecating sense of humor. Tara is flung into some unnerving situations, including encounters with hired thugs, would-be muggers, and head lice. The laughs lighten up the scary bits, and the nonstop action and snappy dialogue keep the standard plot moving along at a good pace."

        March 1, 2012

        The U.S. Treasury folks down in Texas take their white-collar crime investigations seriously, and this is no ordinary tax evasion case. Tara Holloway and her partner Eddie Bardin know that Mexican criminals are preying on local small business folks by blackmailing them into illegal money laundering schemes. The alternative is torturous death; Tara and Eddie know of one victim already. Additionally, one agent might have already been bribed into silence, but Tara begins to wonder if he is not innocent after all. Eddie pulls back from the investigation when his family is threatened, but Tara is not above going rogue. Hold your breath: Annie Oakley is on the loose. VERDICT It is hard not to notice a sexy CPA with a proclivity for weapons. Kelly's sophomore series title (after Death, Taxes, and a French Manicure) isn't cozy, but it has huge romance crossover appeal. With surprisingly dense financial trails and details, the story is not quite as light as the title suggests.
