    "I don't know who I am anymore." Tara has lost her job as a Criminal Investigator with the IRS because of the events in the previous book. A couple of her open cases go to her boyfriend, Nick who gets to travel to Japan and India without her. Tara gets better with each book. I was concerned that there would not be any wild and crazy cases since she is no longer carrying a gun for work. Never fear! Tara can find ways to get in hot water regardless of her employment status. It amused me that simply "I don't know who I am anymore."

The usual supporting crew is here and I am pleased that they all are on Tara's side regarding the legal actions from her earlier predicament. Tara's life is a laugh out loud funny mess. I have fallen behind in this series and need to catch up with the wild and wacky adventures of one of my favorite heroines. I'm not sure that I would classify this as a true cozy since there is a bit of sex in the book that some purists frown upon. I love it just the way it is!

    I love this series and this book made me happy. I really like Tara, she is a very real and likeable character and you can't help but root for her. The story was good, Tara is just a magnet for all the crazy taxpayers. My one complaint would be a couple of minor discrepancies but I did have to look back at the previous paragraph because I was pretty sure that Nick was wearing dress pants and not jeans. Doesn't take away from the story but that kind of thing should be caught before the book goes t I love this series and this book made me happy.

    Looking at the cover, you would think this is another chick lit book. I was surprised this is some kind of a series and I haven't read the previous ones. This is actually my first book of Diane Kelly and I love it. My first time to read about a subject like the IRS and tax evaders. Admirable tax cops. I love the courtroom scenes.

    I usually start a series at the beginning of the series, but I guess my brain was out to lunch when I got this one, because I thought I was starting at the beginning. It didn't take much reading for me to figure out that there were things I should already know, so I looked it up and saw #6 in the title - big Oops! Nevertheless, I really enjoyed Tara and her friends and co-workers, and immediately requested the first 4 books from the library (that's all they had). Even though I now know how #5 end I usually start a series at the beginning of the series, but I guess my brain was out to lunch when I got this one, because I thought I was starting at the beginning.

Even though I now know how #5 ends, I'll likely be buying that one to read all the events that led up to this very enjoyable book.

    I really wasn't crazy about the previous book in this series, but liked this one much better. Tara's life isn't going so great and a lot is being dumped on her, but she keeps on plugging along. She's lost her job, the government is bringing excessive force charges against her and then there's the civil case. Things go from bad to worse, but when the chips are down you find out who you can count on. I've enjoyed this series from the beginning.

    This is another, cute entry in this typically quirky cozy mystery series. It's not the best book in the series, not for Tara who is facing the very serious repurcussions of her actions in the last book, and not for me as a reader because there was too little Nick and because I do happen to think Tara is somewhat guilty of what she's been accused. I also think Tara's marksmanship skills border on the ludicrous but this is a cozy mystery after all, so I guess the point is to not take anything too This is another, cute entry in this typically quirky cozy mystery series.

    Love these stories of the ballsy gal who has it all... Having grown up in the Dallas area all the books bring back memories of places and experiences. Kelly's characters are alive with realism and believability; even the more kooky ones.

    An action-packed cozy mystery that will keep you guessing! Taken from my review at RomanceJunkies.com: Tara Holloway has risked her life more than once while performing her duties as an IRS Special Agent, but when she shoots Don Geils, a lowlife criminal, four times in the leg during a bust, her actions are declared unjustified and she loses her job.

Taken from my review at RomanceJunkies.com: Tara Holloway has risked her life more than once while performing her duties as an IRS Special Agent, but when she shoots Don Geils, a lowlife criminal, four times in the leg during a bust, her actions are declared unjustified and she loses her job. Then the criminal, in the midst of plea bargaining, sues her for nearly twenty-five hundred dollars in doctor bills plus ten million in punitive damages. As if things couldn’t get any worse, the state decides to bring charges against her, claiming she used excessive force, which could earn her a prison sentence. All of this happens just after she is given a plum assignment in which she would have traveled to Japan and India during her investigation. However, this is handed over to her former partner and current lover, Nick, and she is not even allowed to accompany him due to the prosecuting attorney’s threats to get an injunction against her if she tries to leave the state. Although Tara’s former boss Lu is doing everything she can to help Tara, whose firing she feels was unjustified, Tara is at her wit’s end as she struggles with finding work, the paparazzi, the holidays and the possibility of an impending prison sentence. If she had killed Geils, she would not be facing these charges and she would still have her job. An excellent shot, Tara, known as the Annie Oakley of the IRS, could have killed him, but it would have cost her a piece of her soul, something she doesn’t think she could bear. With Nick out of the country, Tara is feeling lonelier than ever. Lu manages to get Tara back in the IRS as an auditor, but what Tara really wants is her old job back. However, they have already found a replacement for her. As she handles a case involving an alleged friend, attempts to keep an eye on Nick’s back in addition to her own predicament, Tara tries to soothe her worries with green tea ice cream. With the help of her family, friends and former partners, will Tara be able to clear herself, or is she about to spend some time behind bars? The sixth book in award winning author Diane Kelly’s TARA HOLLOWAY series, DEATH, TAXES AND GREEN TEA ICE CREAM is a fast-paced, adventure-filled, cozy mystery that will quickly make you a fan. Tara is a tough, but fun, character and her romance with Nick adds even more depth and sex appeal to this story. These two are wonderful together and their angst at not being together during Tara’s troubled time, as she finds herself on the other side of the courtroom and suffering from self-doubt, is realistically displayed in this book. No matter what interesting case Tara is working on, trouble always seems to find her, often to hilarious results. With the combination of humor, danger, suspense, mystery, romance, interesting tax-related investigations, loads of fun and a bit of sass, this series is always entertaining and this book is no exception. I am a huge fan of Ms. Kelly’s work and eager to read the next installment, DEATH, TAXES AND SILVER SPURS, due to release July 29, 2014. For a book sure to keep you entertained, look no further than DEATH, TAXES AND GREEN TEA or any of the TARA HOLLOWAY stories! I recommend them! Dottie, RomanceJunkies.com

But as always, Nick steps in This series, along with Tara Holloway, have stolen my heart. Tara is a kick butt heroine with some series butt-stomping skills. She is fierce and passionate about what she does. This series continues to develop in a positive way, and give readers new cases and brand new characters to grip ahold of! At the start of this book, and the end of the last one, readers learn that Tara has been fired from her job, and for someone like Tara this constitutes a mental breakdown. But as always, Nick steps in to save the day and Tara is on another mission once more! I didn’t really know how to feel about Tara no longer working for the IRS, but once again Diane Kelly comes through in a clutch. I worried for nothing it turns out because even though she no longer has a badge and a holster packed with heat, she still has other advantages to getting inside some of her very own cases. Tara, as well as the author who wrote her, is highly intelligent and incredibly clever and she always gets what she wants! Tara is someone for other women to look up to; she is a feminist herself and believes in equal treatment for all women. In Tara’s eyes, women can do all that men do, and do it better. She is an outstanding heroine that continues to grow and bloom with each addition to this series. Tara and Nick’s relationship makes me happy! I love watching it mature and develop into more for both of them. Nick really respects Tara’s space, which any man must do if he is going to date Tara. Tara proves that she cannot be held down, and Nick has just the right personality to work alongside her. Their relationship works well and adds humor and a light romantic fluff to the stories, just what they needed! ***A copy of this book was provided to me by the publishers at St. Martin’s Paperbacks in exchange for my honest review***

There is a trick to combining romance with other genres like mystery and suspense. You need to have more than a romance novel with a mystery tacked on, or a mystery novel that has a relationship - there has to be an actual blend of the two, in my mind. Unfortunately, I’ve read far too many that simply don’t fit the bill. While this one was a bit hit-or-miss with the mystery, the characters carried the story well beyond what I was expecting. Poor Tara Holloway - she’s not having a good couple of months. After an 8-month tenure as an IRS Special Agent (think tax cop), Tara has been fired after Internal Affairs ruled against her shooting a man in the leg. Four times. Well, it wasn’t like he was a very good man, right? But now the scumbag is filing a civil case against her for his medical expenses and “damages” (Tara is starting to wish she had “damaged” him more…) and to add injury to the insult, there are criminal “excessive force” charges being brought up against her. At least she has the support of her former partner and current boyfriend Nick to support her. But with the loss of an agent at the IRS, her old job filled has been and Nick is working with the new guy, traveling across the world to track down a fraudulent vendor, and Tara finds herself temporarily (she hopes) working as an IRS auditor. But trouble manages to find her still, even without the backup of her gun and ever-faithful pepper spray. Well, at least her dad got her a new long-range rifle for Christmas! Just what she wanted! (No, really, it actually is just what she wanted.)

    Tara has recently been fired as an IRS agent because in her last case, she fired four shots into Don, a slimy dog's leg. In addition, she is being charged with using excessive force and Don is suing her for $10 million dollars in damages. She hires a lawyer and is counting the days 'til she may lose her freedom. In the meantime, her former boss gets her a job in the audit department ... she misses the action of being an IRS agent but at least she's making money again.

In the meantime, her former boss gets her a job in the audit department ... she misses the action of being an IRS agent but at least she's making money again. This is the sixth book in the Tara Holloway series (I've read the previous ones) and the seventh book I've read by this author. It works as a stand alone as there was enough information from the past ones so you know what's going on. This book is written in first person perspective from Tara's point of view. As a head's up, there is swearing and adult activity. I thought this book was just okay ... it's my least favourite of the series. I didn't find it as fun as the others. I know Tara had a lot going on but I didn't find her overly likeable until the end. I thought it was impulsive and wrong how she'd shot Don in the first place and that she deserved having to go through the trial. She was lucky that the Lobo found her a new job. Despite being involved in cases which have him flying to Japan and India in the same week, Nick is very supportive as are her friends, former colleagues and family.

    I received a free copy of this book as part of the Goodreads Giveaway. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, Death, Taxes, and Green Tea Ice Cream, by Diane Kelly. It was light and fun but if you’re looking for a serious murder mystery this isn’t the book for you. Tara Holloway is or should I say was a Special Agent with the IRS.

As Special Agent Pratt picks up the cases Tara was assigned, Tara is left to find a new job before her small savings account runs out. Sound simple? Nothing is simple with Tara. She manages to get into very interesting situations in the book. Even though this was the sixth book in the series for Tara Holloway, I didn’t feel that by starting with this book I missed out. I have not read any of the previous books. There were enough references to previous situations that Tara has gotten herself into that I know I want to start reading the series from the beginning. And I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next book (assuming there will be one.)

    This is the first I've read of Diane Kelly's work, and I want more! IRS Special Agent Tara Holloway, who has been fired for the way in which she shot down a particularly odious bad guy, is one of the best series heroines I've come across in ages. She's smart, snappy, realistically vulnerable, and uses salty language.

Tara's former boss gets Tara another job with the IRS, in the less-than-fun auditing department. There, Tara tries to cool her heels while awaiting her court case for assault. She can't manage to stay out of trouble, though, especially when an old enemy from college appears on her auditing schedule. This was a fun read from beginning to end. Most important, I found myself caring about Tara and rooting for her. I definitely want to read more of this series.

There were a lot of disjointed IRS cases, but no real mystery, and a lot of the book felt like filler not really leading anywhere, just killing time until the denouncement. It was a fine read, enjoyable in many parts, but nothing really wowed me, or made me want to revisit the series again.

There was a time in the very beginning where I thought the entire book may be 'bogged down' by tax terminology and procedures, legal proceedings, etc (which really don't interest me much). However, as I read more and more, I grew to love Tara and became invested in the tax/legal procedures because I wanted to know how they would affect her in the end.

    I love this girl. Special Agent Tara Holloway is the perfect blend of clever, fun, brilliant, down-to-earth and unforgettable. Just when I think Dianne Kelly has no where new to take her character, there are surprises up and down and all around. These books are filled with action, romance, suspense and humor. Nick, Lobo, Eddie, Tara's parents and the rest of the supporting crew have such well written banter, interaction and intriguing stories it makes these novels irresistible.

    Love it, easy to read, characters well build, scene believable. Every chapter lead to wanting more. Female sharpshooter, who's bosses could not believe in her abilities as a special agent for the irs. She can out shot just about everyone and proofs it. The bad guy tries to take her to court and the book is built around the court proceedings and still bagging the bad guys. A women to be reckoned with, for sure a must read

    I really like this series, and I could not put this one down. In this one, the main character finds herself on the other side of several lawsuits that could be debilitating to her life and to her career. Fortunately, her family and friends stood by her, plus she had a good lawyer, and somehow managed to survive what was definitely a traumatic situation. I hope the author writes a lot more of these books, and very quickly!

    Marvelous, funny, and clever series Diane Kelly gives her readers a likable, honest hero. Tara Holloway is a down-to-earth IRS agent that doesn't take kindly to people who cheat other people and the IRS. This is a delightful series about the good IRS agents. Start with the first book and don't stopped until you are at latest book. This series is cute, funny with a little romance thrown in for good measure.

Didn't want to see Tara sent to prison and the series wouldn't be any good if she didn't get her job back BUT what she did is wrong and if she can't control herself and acts as judge and jury then she SHOULDN'T have a badge and a gun.

    I love the Tara Holloway series, even though I've managed to fall behind. This one has cases involving counterfeit phones, fake debt collectors, and chocolate cow patties, but most of Tara's problems come from being fired (at the end of the last book), sued by the man she shot, and charged with excessive force. Somehow Kelly manages to make even those troubles funny. And I'm on to the next one!

    A little predictable...light easy read. This was my first Tara Holloway book. I found this is one of those books that remind me I have to finish no matter how much it isn't working for me. There is nothing inherently bad about the book: the plot is a little predictable, the characters neither curiously interesting or relatable, there is little suspense.
