Death, Taxes, and a Sequined Clutch by Diane Kelly is the first novella in the “Death and Taxes” romantic mystery series. Publisher: St. Martin’s Paperbacks, October 2012
IRS special agent Tara Holloway isn’t going to let a perfect opportunity to collect pass her by. Especially when she can do it in sequins and a bedazzled hip holster.
Death and taxes wait for no woman. And if anything can take Tara’s mind off gorgeous temptation Nick Pratt, her new coworker, it’s a case at her old accounting firm—involving none other than the arrogant womanizer who humiliated her years ago. Taking down brothers who’ve lied and cheated their way into millions is a professional satisfaction, but catching Nathan Jamison with his pants down is the most fun Tara can have without Nick. That is, until the bullets start flying.
It never fails…a simple IRS case always ends with someone shooting at Tara, but rest assured, Tara has her glock at the ready for a hoe down shoot out. This was a fun read and I especially enjoyed how Tara enacted her revenge on an old co-worker. A visit from her parents brings humor and I can’t wait to read the next exciting adventures with Tara and her friends.
