I have a new obsession and her name is Tara Holloway. To be honest, I’ve had these books on my bookshelf for quite a long time and I haven’t had a chance to read them until now. But since I’ve had this Cozy Mystery kick, I figured that I would read these since I already have so many of them. This is the first book that I read from the series and although it’s technically the third in the series, I had no problem jumping into the story.
Tara is an agent for the IRS and like most people I know, I associate taxes is really boring people. However, Tara is probably the most lively heroine I’ve read in a long time. Immediately I fell for her because of her snark and sense of humor. If you can’t guess by the cover of these books, they are going to be light read, but don’t think for one moment that they don’t pack a punch.
Diane Kelly does a wonderful job of exploring white collar crime. Not only if she highly detailed, but there are so many laugh out loud moments in this book, I felt like I bookmarked every single page.
In addition to the wonderful cases, there’s a touch of romance in this series as well. Although Tara is technically matched up with someone already, she has the hots for temporary partner, Nick.
Nick – Oh man, this guy is everything a woman would want in a guy. He’s a tad cocky but not over the top to where your eyes roll over in your head. It’s just enough to make you smile and I think Kelly did a great job with his character. The other secondary characters are amazing as well. In fact, I fell in love with the whole crew, which is why I’m so excited that I found this series. I have a feeling that I’m going to be glomming the rest of the series because they are so damn fun!
The Tara Holloway series is packed with hilarious antics and fast-paced action. If you’re looking for something that is wholly unique, Diane Kelly is your girl.
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
