So if you know Stephanie Plum from many of Janet Evanovich’s novels then you might want to get to know Tara Holloway. The Death, Taxes, and series is penned by author Diane Kelly. The latest in the series will be coming out this month. I am sharing Death, Taxes, and Peach Sangria. Are you ready for an adventure?
Tara and her partner Eddie have been assigned some cases by Lu their boss. They have to go around and check out businesses to make sure that they handling the money correctly. There is a secondary purpose which has to do with the other case they were assigned. This case is to follow the trial of terrorists who have been arrested. In the meantime at the office everyone is looking for a hook up. Nick is also interested in joining the Double D dating service, and Tara has had her eye on him for a while. She wants a chance with him but can’t tell her current boyfriend Brett. Will she be able to express her true feelings? Will she catch thieves who helped the terrorists?
I met Diane last summer at the National Romance Writer’s conference. They had a signing that night. There were many authors there I had a great time talking with Diane. I didn’t that her novels would be similar to Janet Evanovich. I enjoy both writers.
Tara is an interesting character. I came into the series in the middle so I really can’t tell you much about her. I also might give something away from the story that you all need to check out for yourselves. The novel is written from her point of view. She is interesting as a narrator. There are other characters that help move the story along but they all can’t hold a candle to Tara.
This novel is worth checking out!
