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.

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'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!

Didn't seem like much of a mystery until the end when the heroine started actively trying to solve the murders. However, I found it funny and entertaining. There are a lot of wacky situations that keep your interest. I would read more by this author.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

Well-written 188 page story of a ditzy, accident-prone high school teacher in a small southern town. An excerpt from next book included. Not an imperative purchase.

Don't let the slow start fool you. This is not another predictable book about a gal down on her luck who meets Prince Charming. A good 'who did it?' with twists and turns that keep you gueesing. Such a great variety of characters - and good job of relationship development. Setting is simple. Not a mystery/crime book with lot of depth to the plot (certainly not a Grisham or Baldacci) but a quick easy read with a good bit of sexual overtones. AH

Lacking maturity -- so very glad it was free. Couldn't get past the third chapter due to the 30 year old ditz that is the heroine. Too freakin' unbelievable for a high school history teacher to be stuck on dressing, thinking and behaving as if she's the age of her students. Maybe it gets better further in, but not going to waste the time.

I’m not sure whether I would categorize Whiskey Rebellion as a mystery, a romance or a comedy. Certainly, there are several murders and the heroine and her friends figure out “who dunnit”. But along the way, there are a lot of laughs, a 20 year cat fight between the heroine and a rival from her school days, and a budding romance between the heroine and a police detective. It was a fun read but the plot was a little thin as I figured out what was going on about halfway through the book. Would I read another in the series? Maybe.
