    Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

    This book was hilarious! I seriously laughed so hard reading it. The storyline was interesting as well, about an agent in the criminal enforcement wing of the IRS. With a solid mystery and great humor (often off-color), with a lively heroine who stands out big time, I enjoyed this book.

    Interesting character, Tara, and apparently already a series. I found this one at a thrift shop so I'll keep an eye out for the others. Think of Stephanie Plum as a female IRS special agent and you'll have Tara. Not as fast a read as the Evanovich books, but kept me interested.

    I took a break from reading this book after about 6 chapters because it wasn't holding my attention. I picked it back up after a few days and found myself much more interested in the rest of the book. Slow start or short attention span, the book picked up quickly afterwards and while you pretty much always know who the bad guy is, I found myself looking forward to finding out how they catch him in the end. Lots of action, a few slapstick moments and great characters. I'll be on the lookout for I took a break from reading this book after about 6 chapters because it wasn't holding my attention.

    Tara and Eddie are back just a few short weeks after being injured on their last assignment. This time, they are up against a loan shark that not only is withholding taxes, he chops up people who don't do as he wishes. Tara's relationship with Brett heats up. (Sometimes a little more that she would like....LuvLub!) A double crossing former coworker, a BFF with her new beau and a kickass new friend all pitch in to catch the bad guy. Laugh out loud funny! 4 stars

    4.5 stars I'm glad I stuck with this series, because this book definitely did a good job of building on the first in the series. The fun, snarky voice of Tara Holloway is still very much there, and I found this to be more strongly written than the one preceding it. Looking forward to book #3!

    This author has a great writing style--funny, good character and plot development--but the language and sex are bad. I enjoyed the story--an IRS agent who is involved in bringing down a scumbag tax cheat/money launderer/murderer, but I was really put off by the other, and unnecessary, stuff.

    While the first book in this series didn't impress me very much, I will admit that I liked this second effort much better. Although I still find it hard to feel morally outraged over people not filing correct tax returns, at least this time around an actual murder is involved. Crime/drug lord Marcos Mendoza is guilty of several murders but with the police and FBI at a loss for how to prove it, the feds turn to the IRS' criminal tax investigation department to nail Mendoza to the wall using the While the first book in this series didn't impress me very much, I will admit that I liked this second effort much better. Although I still find it hard to feel morally outraged over people not filing correct tax returns, at least this time around an actual murder is involved. Crime/drug lord Marcos Mendoza is guilty of several murders but with the police and FBI at a loss for how to prove it, the feds turn to the IRS' criminal tax investigation department to nail Mendoza to the wall using the only legal ammo they have. This sets Tara and her partner, Eddie, on the tax fraud trail while simultaneously trying to stay under Mendoza's radar lest they end up dead too. I thought that the humor was better in this book and the characters seem to be settling into their roles. Tara came across as more mature in this book and less flighty. The hook of the series seems to be that Tara will be obsessed with whatever the fill-in-the-blank portion of the book title is, i.e. "Death, Taxes, and Fill-in-th-blank", which is kind of cool. Another thing that differentiates this series from other cozies is that there is never any question of who the guilty party is. The reader knows who the culprit is from the beginning; the only question that needs to be answered is the manner in which Tara and Eddie will take them down. This is probably a less interesting approach than having the reader figure out who-done-it along with the protagonist but I can appreciate that the author is going for something different here. The romance angle is still on the bland side for my tastes but a new character is introduced that could spice things up. Now I am not one to ever advocate for a love triangle. I pretty much hate them on sight. That said, I enjoy a book series so much more when I am just as invested in the main protagonist's love life (if there is one) as I am in the rest of the story. So if a romance is part of the story I want it to be a good one, full of back and forth banter and chemistry. I don't get any of that with Tara and her landscape architect boyfriend, Brett. He's nice, but dull. The good thing is that he doesn't eat up a lot of page time in this book. Another thing that I like is that this series is set in Dallas, Texas and makes quite a few references to other parts of the state. Being a lifelong Texan, I like being familiar with the setting and being able to track Tara's movements around both the city and state. In the end, this second book was enough to motivate me to give the rest of the series a try.

    Tara is an IRS agent ... she was hired because she's got an accounting background but is also a sharpshooter. She and her partner, Eddie, are trying to get the goods on Marcos Mendoza, a dangerous loan shark. If you can't pay up or you cross him, he has ways of making you sorry (like having your body cut up into many pieces and discarded around the state of Texas).

She and her partner, Eddie, are trying to get the goods on Marcos Mendoza, a dangerous loan shark.

Three years ago, another IRS agent, Nick, had tried to infiltrate Marcos' organization to bring him down but ended up taking a bribe from him and quit his job to live in Mexico. Because of all the surveillance work she has to do, Tara's not able to spend much time with her new beau, Brett, or her two cats, Annie and Henry. Instead her favourite high calorie lattes are keeping her company and adding on some pounds and inches (hence the reference to the skinny lattes which she has to begrudgingly switch over to). This is the second book in the Tara Holloway series (and the fifth book I've read by this author). I read the first one, third one and fourth one in the series within the last couple of weeks ... they work as stand alones as there was enough information from the past ones so you know what's going on. I enjoyed this one. I liked the writing style ... it was funny and sarcastic (the scene with the guy in the trench coat was a hoot!). It is written in first person perspective from Tara's point of view. As a head's up, there is some swearing and adult activity. I liked Tara. She gets really involved with this case and won't let it go. She would be a good person to have on your side. Brett sounds like a nice guy but I find him a bit boring and blah. Tara has loyal friends in Alicia and Christina. Dr. Ajay, as in the other books, is a hoot and unfortunately Tara has to see him more often than she'd like. This is definitely a series I'm enjoying and looking forward to reading more of. Blog review post: http://www.teenaintoronto.com/2014/07...

Tara is back, this time in action packed investigation to stop not only a tax cheat, but a murdering, money launderer. Tara and her partner Eddie take on Marcos Mendoza and it almost costs one of them their life and family and the other their relationship. Extra drama comes in due to a couple of new characters that Ms. Kelly has introduced, who may just cause trouble in paradise between Tara and her boyfriend Brett. Ms. Kelly has created an exciting, fun new mystery series with quirky characters and a twist, I mean who would have ever guessed IRS investigators could be so cool! You can't help but love Tara's, tough talking, polyester clad, bee-hive wearing boss, Lu. I admit....I am addicted to Tara Holloway and the entire zany supporting cast of the Death and Taxes series. Tara is a gun toting, quick witted, kick ass heroine who goes after the bad guys with all she's got. Death, Taxes, and a Skinny No-Whip Latte is a fast paced, funny, mystery with a little bit of romance in the background. If you like mysteries with comedy and a continuing relationship between the H/h, I strongly recommend Diane Kelly's Death and Taxes series. I cannot wait for the release of Death, Taxes, and Extra-Hold Hairspray on 7/1/12!

    Death, Taxes and a Skinny No-Whip Latte by Diane Kelly Who knew a mystery with an IRS investigator could be so funny? Okay, I did because I'd read Diane Kelly's first Death book, but this second one is a Hoot! Here are a couple of examples. "In the preceding presidential election debates, Texan candidate Ross Perot had warned voters that, if passed, the pending bill would result in a "giant sucking sound" of jobs heading south of the border. Bill Clinton was elected and had promptly signed the Death, Taxes and a Skinny No-Whip Latte by Diane Kelly Who knew a mystery with an IRS investigator could be so funny?

"In the preceding presidential election debates, Texan candidate Ross Perot had warned voters that, if passed, the pending bill would result in a "giant sucking sound" of jobs heading south of the border. Bill Clinton was elected and had promptly signed the controversial bill. Then again, President Clinton was known for sucking sounds." "Society at large had no clue that the Treasury department employed a team of crack agents whose job it was to pursue criminal tax evaders. And, yep, we carried guns. Pepper spray, too. I'd lobbied for nunchucks, brass knuckles, and Chinese throwing stars, but to no avail. Something about civil rights, abuse of power, yada yada yada." Tara Holloway is an agent of the Criminal Investigations Division of the IRS. She and partner Eddie are investigating suspected loan shark Marcos Mendoza but clues are thin and the stake-outs long and boring. Except for the pervert exposing himself outside the car window. And the would be robber in the laundromat. And the Carmel lattes. Will Tara ever catch her man?Or will sexy Nick Pratt double cross her? This second series book about Tara Holloway and her misadventures is entertaining and engaging. It's even laugh out loud funny in places. An absolute must read.

Well, more like in pieces in individual evidence bags. The case to fry Mendoza is consuming Tara's entire life, costing her a very important trip with her boyfriend Brett. When the case seems to be going nowhere, things take a turn for the worse and Tara gets thrown off the case. She can't give up, so she takes the case into her own hands and finds herself bending the rules and breaking a few laws. This was the second installment to the Tara Holloway series, and Diane Kelly definitely continues to impress. The same characters we grew to love in the first book are back, and Tara has really come into her own in this second adventure. Gone are her little quirks from the first book that didn't fit with her strong & driven IRS Special Agent persona - like needing an almost daily manicure. She's still very feminine though, but not to the point of seeming like she has multiple clashing personalities! My major complaint was how the plot resolved without any consequences for Tara's rules & law bending. She never gets in trouble for anything! It became too predictable. But, other than that the plot was awesomely done - no doubt thanks to the author's personal experiences.

Tara Holloway is a crack-shot (she has my respect just for that), coffee-addicted, IRS investigator still trying to prove herself to both the agency and to herself. However, there was one element that just set my teeth to hurting. The cutsie-pie comments. “Hot pants for my hot boyfriend.” “I’ll take you hot and the pizza cold.” Who talks like this? Really, have you ever uttered these words in the heat of romance? Fortunately they were few and far between, but comments like these tend to stop the pace of the story as I try to digest them, going back to see if I really read what I thought I read. I also don’t like an overflow of information. Do I really need to know who ordered what for dinner? If it’s not pertinent to the story, then it’s just filler. (According to Strunk and White, “A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences…”.) In spite of these small issues, the book is delightful and amusing. I read this book in a half-a-day, lounging in the sun on my lanai. Truly, a good beach read.

    I don't normally read humorous suspense stories, but I thought I should branch out and try something new. I'm so glad I did. This book made me laugh out loud several times (no easy feat) and chuckle many more. It's a good thing I wasn't reading it in public or people would have thought I was a lunatic. The suspense was handled well, and even though big chunks of the book are stakeouts, it never gets too draggy. I also liked Tara Holloway, the main character, and her co-workers.

Plus, a sexy new character is introduced in the last third who looks like he may shake up Tara's life in more ways than one. I need to go back and read the first book in this series and then the one after it. I recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense and is looking for something a little more light-hearted.

    So I read Death, Taxes, and Extra-Hold Hairspray before this book, but I still think these books are fine to be read on their own and out of order. While I didn't think this book had as many humorous lines as the third book, it still had enough to make me snort more than a few times.

I like the accounting aspect of it...not that she gets into it in detail, but it's an interesting line of work. Toss in a gun and investigative skills, and you have one heck of a sleuth.

    I liked this one. I appreciated the humor; i was amused by several scenes, and there was a beach scene that made me laugh out loud. The main character was likable, the plot was good, and I enjoyed the story. There was good chemistry among the love interests. My criticisms are that the tax information can get a little bit tedious, and there wasn't much of a mystery, as the "bad guy" was known throughout, but overall, a good read.

    IRS special investigator Tara and her partner Eddie are trying to pin something on a man named Mendoza, who is not only murdering associates, but also cheating on his taxes. Mendoza also corrupted another Treasury agent, Nick, who was investigating him. But it looks like Mendoza has covered all his bases, and the pair have trouble trying to find a weak link in his defenses. There's nothing wrong with this, but it just didn't really grab me.

    Tara Holloway, who is a CPA and Criminal Investigations Division agent with the IRS, has just been assigned the biggest case of her career along with her partner Eddie. Unfortunately, she's also gained a couple of pounds, which really doesn't help her mood. This series is smart and funny, laugh out loud funny, and keeping up with the gun-toting Tara, her partner Eddie, her boyfriend Brett, her two BFF's, and her boss Lu, can be addictive. I love the series.

    This book was totally hilarious, the mystery took a different route since the main character is the actual investigator, instead of a nosy sleuth. It steered its way from cozy territory with a (1 page) sex scene on page 30-something. And it was full of bad language, guns, and hilarious quips. Such a great book and I loved it. I'm ready for the next one!

    You cannot hold an enchilada in your hand, yet her characters manage to do so without getting enchilada sauce and cheese on their hands. Quite a feat unless they are really eating a burrito and not an enchilada. Other than that, I enjoy her books very much.

    I loved this book. I am not certain what was funnier, Tara mistaking the sunscreen with another product or Lu being a cross between Cleopatra and the Heat Miser. Both almost had me pee in my pants. Along with that, I will never look at a baked potato the same! Thanks Diane. I loved it.
