Death, Taxes, and Peach Sangria (Tara Holloway Series #4) by Diane Kelly

Death, Taxes, and Peach Sangria from A Tara Holloway Novel series

Diane Kelly

When it comes to exposing tax fraud, Tara and her partner Eddie are really cleaning up. From their brilliant takedown of the disappearing "Tax Wizard" to their perfectly planned downfall of the "Deduction Diva," they've earned the respect of their peers at Criminal Investigations. Now Tara's ready to celebrate with an ice-cold pitcher of peach sangria—even if her next case is totally the pits…

Tara's looking forward to a challenge but, back at the office, everyone's looking for love. Her boss Lu "The Lobo" Lobozinski and office virgin Josh Schmidt are signing up for an online dating service, and—to Tara's dismay—so is her crush, Special Agent Nick Pratt. Tara's trying to act chill. But when she learns that her next case involves cash-funneling to terrorists, it's not just her love life that's on the rocks. It's her life, period.

Oh what a fun time I had with Tara as she goes on a hunt for tax cheaters. Diane sure knows how to tickle my funny bone with the laugh a minute tome that is delightfully entertaining. The writing is crisp; the dialogue witty and engaging and the action is unstoppable. But what I like most about this book and series is that Tara is so lovable and I enjoy her relationship with friends and her parents. This is a great read and I look forward to the next exciting cases that crosses Tara’s desk.

I've read all in this series and they are a cute, fast read. Starting to be a little predictable, but still enjoyable.

Not quite as funny as Stephanie Plum, but not as inept either. Tara learned how to shoot before she was out of diapers and if she has a cookie jar in her kitchen, she probably actually keeps cookies in it (instead of her gun). She has a romantic dilemma, too, although it's easier (for me, anyway) to see who she should be with. Humorous, entertaining, and worth the time to read.

Where can I get that recipe for the Peach Sangria? It seems to help with all types of problems. Again another fun read. Tara gets into some of the strangest situations, and still comes out on top. Loved every minute of reading this book.

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? Synopsis: 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? My Thoughts: 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! Jencey/Writer's Corner

I loved it. But I got upset at a few "interruption", but it worked out. I did have a great laugh about Josh in the coffee shop and his whimper. I could see that so clear. But the TSA was really a great part even if not for Tara, but I could not believe she had NOT cleaned it out. But she did not deserve what she got either. The Halloween party was great and I am so happy for Alicia, poor girl. Good grief, I don't think she could handle another day with Tara's laundry. So I read the book in one day now I have to wait until the summer to see what leg warmers has in store for all of us. I have a feeling Tara and Diane are both saying "Neener neener" to me right now. At least I can make some peach sangria!
