WHISKEY REBELLION: AN ADDISON HOLMES MYSTERY

My name is Addison Holmes, and I teach history at James Madison High School in Whiskey Bayou, Georgia. You might be under the assumption that my life went to the dogs when my fiancé left me at the altar for the home economics teacher, or when I got notice that my apartment building was going to be condemned, or even when I was desperate enough to strip to my unmentionables to earn some extra cash.

WHISKEY REBELLION: AN ADDISON HOLMES MYSTERY

My name is Addison Holmes, and I teach history at James Madison High School in Whiskey Bayou, Georgia. You might be under the assumption that my life went to the dogs when my fiancé left me at the altar for the home economics teacher, or when I got notice that my apartment building was going to be condemned, or even when I was desperate enough to strip to my unmentionables to earn some extra cash. The truth is that I'm pretty much used to disasters following me around on a daily basis, but I could have gone without finding my principal dead in the parking lot of a seedy gentlemen's club.

After the initial shock of finding my first dead body, which included throwing back shots of Jack Daniels like it was water, I decided to take stock of my life. I was in a desperate situation and if the school board ever found out I'd been a stripper, even a bad stripper, I'd be jobless as well as fiancé-less and homeless. Fortunately, I had a friend who felt sorry enough for me to give me a job doing some surveillance work at her detective agency. Not to mention the fact that I was now able to stick my nose into other people's business for a good cause, find a murderer, and pick up helpful tips from an incredibly attractive detective.

Come check out my story and be thankful your life is relatively normal.

    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!

    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!

    Really good!!

    This was a really good laugh out loud book. Addison was funny and had such great adventures. Everything with her was an adventure. It seemed like trouble followed her. Nick was a by the books police officer and Kate was a great friend. I am looking forward to reading more of Addison's adventures.

    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.
