Death, Taxes, and a Shotgun Wedding by Diane Kelly is the 12th book in the “Tara Holloway” romantic mystery series. Publisher: St. Martin’s Paperbacks, coming October 31, 2017
LOVE BEGINS―AND ENDS―WITH A BANG.
For IRS Special Agent Tara Holloway, this case is personal. . .
Wedding bells are ringing as Tara and her soon-to-be-husband Nick prepare for their big day. But along with all the RSVP cards are a series of death threats from an unknown source. The culprit must be someone from an earlier investigation―a white-collar criminal with a red-hot grudge―but Tara has run across too many lawbreakers to narrow down the search. And time, like her biological clock, is ticking.Now, while dodging attempts on her life, Tara also finds herself embroiled in a rental scam in which a heartless crook is ripping people off left and right. Will she be able to track down the con artist and make it down the aisle in one piece? Or will “til death do us part” come before Tara can even say “I do”?
In her last hurrah, Tara has hit the trifecta with her upcoming wedding, a rental scam and a stalking bent on killing her. What is Tara supposed to do? Knowing Tara she’ll doggedly pursue what needs to be done so that she can get to the church on time. I love this series and will miss the many adventures of Tara Holloway.
The author did a great job in wrapping up this engaging and entertaining series with what Tara does best, go after those trying to cheat the system and stop a stalker in their tracks with assistance from her IRS co-workers. This was a well-written drama where all the players played pivotal roles that enhanced the telling of this tale. From multiple attempts on her life, from going undercover as a driver, from family gatherings, from enjoying life to the fullest, this was one of my favorite book in the series and again, I’ll miss Tara and Nick. Love the epilogue which put a smile on my face.
