Meet the Author

Liliana Hart spent five years teaching music in the public education system. She molded America’s youth, busted kids for smoking pot in the restrooms, and broke up illicit affairs behind the stage on a regular basis, so she finally decided to hang up her hat and let someone else have all the fun. (Liliana’s Addison Holmes Mystery Series, about a small town teacher who gets into a whole lot of trouble, is somewhat autobiographical, but she won’t confess to which parts).Liliana began reading romance novels with all her new found free time, and when she ran out of things to read, she decided to write her own novels. The result was a 150,000 word thriller—a dazzling adventure—where the heroine was a thirty-year-old virgin assassin (Yes, you read that right). She couldn’t imagine why people weren’t knocking down her door to read it, but she persevered through the rejections and began writing a second book. She finally got the hang of things and eventually learned that losing one’s virginity wasn’t all that romantic after all. All of her books involve some kind of suspense (she just can't help herself), laughter, and a lot of steamy sex.Since the failure of her first writing attempt, Liliana’s books have gone on to win awards such as: The Daphne Du Maurier, The Suzannah, The Linda Howard Award of Excellence, The Maggie, and many others. Her affiliations include Romance Writers of America and Mystery Writers of America.Liliana loves to cook and is addicted to reading, Internet Boggle, kickboxing, and Bones. She lives in a big, rambling house in Texas with a couple of cats to keep her company. She loves to get emails from readers.Enjoy the Adventures!

    Well written and entertaining!

    Review by Ursula:

    An entertaining, fun read. Addison has a knack for getting into trouble. She has horrible luck and it's only going to get worse. The story was well told from a first person point of view and moved the action on at a steady pace. Addison's mom, best friend and co-worker are the perfect addition to the story. They make the story more interesting and provide relief from Addison's horrible mishaps that seem to happen at an unnatural pace.

    Nick, the cop working on the murder case that Addison first reported when she tripped over the body, was a likeable character and you enjoyed the scenes he was in. He is a good cop, very capable and determined; because of that, this is where the only problem I have with the story comes up. The police are on the case, and an accident prone, bad luck, unexperienced high school teacher feels she needs to embroil herself in the investigation. With multiple deaths, Addison feeling she should be involved in the case was somewhat irritating, especially when she keeps crucial evidence from the police.

    Overall, the story is worth reading. It is well written, entertaining and a quick read. I enjoyed the character developement of each of the principles. There were several different people involved, but Liliana gives you enough character building for each one that you feel you get to know them.

    What a great fun book to read. You won’t want to put it down. It has a little bit of everything in it; murder,
    mystery, love, mothers and humor. Very light read but so enjoyable. Everyone can relate to a teacher who
    has her fiancée leave her at the altar, her apartment building is condemned and starts a job as a stripper to
    earn a little extra money, right? And since there’s a murder in the area, why not do a little detective work too.
    And of course, while doing surveillance work there’s that great looking cop. Yep, this was a great book!
    I look forward to reading more by Lilian Hart.

    I loved this book! It was very good. Kind of like a southern redneck Stephanie Plum. I can wait to read the next 2 in this series. I bought them right away and I hope there is more to come. I also see other books by this author and if they are even half as good as this series it will definitely be worth a look! This book was very well written & very entertaining. Not many can keep my attention but this one did! So read this everyone! You have nothing to lose since this one is free for the nook! Enjoy, I certainly did!

    Wonderful-well written- lots of humor. Addison is smart and fun. I could not put this book down. It will keep a smile on your face from start to finish. I have ordered the rest in this series and can not wait to read them.

    Enjoyed the story. I never laughed so hard as I did while reading this story. It is about a school teacher who is trying to find a second job and the trouble she gets herself in.

    Loved it!

    I'm not going to write a recap about the book since that's already been done. I'm going to tell you to read this book - you will not regret it.

    I smiled, giggled and laughed out loud so many times during this read and you will too. Addison is a believable character. I love how clumsy she is and her reactions to the situations she falls into.

    Looking forward to reading more in this series and her other series. Enjoy!

    Good read

    If you like Stephanie Plum, you're going to like Addison. Fun mystery with a lot of laughs and a sexy cop to boot. Can't wait to read more.

    Oh my gosh...go out and read this book!

    I love this book and I can wait to read the other books in the series. This is a laugh out loud with great writing style that makes you want to read the next page, hell the whole book in one night. You meet Addison Holmes who is down on her luck and is trying to make extra money as a stripper (bad one at that) to buy her dream house. She was just left at the alter by her fiance who is cheating with her arch nemesis. Her apartment building is being condemned and she doesn't want to move in with her mother, she is about to go on summer vacation from her real job as a history teacher and she stumbles onto a dead body as her last and only time being a stripper.

    Addison Holmes always finds herself in the worse case scenarios because disaster follows her like a mosquito to a flame. This book won't disappoint as the best summer read of 2013. It has a little something for everyone, romance, mystery and a go getter that will do everything in her power to make lemon-drop shops with the lemons that life has given her. I would love to see this become a movie with Emma Stone playing Addison, she would really make this character come to life and make you want to give her a hug, a shot and a dollar bill!

    Thank you Ms. Hart on writing an amazing book, one that everyone should go out and buy!

    Good book!

    I enjoyed this book. Light, funny, and a hot male lead! Still, there needs to be some additional editing. Lots of typos! I do plan on reading the next installment!
