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...

MEDIA REVIEWS

"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." --RT Book Reviews

"A quirky, fun tale that pulls you in with its witty heroine and outlandish situations, DEATH, TAXES, AND A SKINNY NO-WHIP LATTE has a bit of everything. You'll laugh at Tara 's predicaments, and cheer her on as she nearly single-handedly tackles the case." --Romance Reviews Today

"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." --Library Journal

"Ms. Kelly has created an exciting, fun new mystery series with quirky characters and a twist, I mean who would have ever guessed IRS investigators could be so cool!" --Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

"Kelly's novel is off to a fast start and never slows down. There is suspense but also laugh aloud moments. If you enjoy Stephanie Plum in the Evanovich novels you will love Tara Holloway!" --Reader to Reader Reviews
