    ❂ Murder by Death

    I love this series, but this one wasn't my favorite. I'm pretty sure thought that it's me, not the book or the writing. I couldn't relate to Tara losing her head over the music star and I just wanted to shake her. But I quite enjoyed the story line about the oil and gas case. I'm looking forward to the next book. full review: http://jenn.booklikes.com/post/107768... I love this series, but this one wasn't my favorite.

    Tara is an IRS Special Agent in Texas. She carries a gun and can use it. Her boyfriend/love interest Nick, also works as an agent for the IRS. Tara’s current case involves the current #1 sexy Country-Western singer in the US. Brazos River is only 22, but he sets women’s hearts a flutter whether they are 10 or 60 years old. He is Tara’s main dreamboat, but she must get him to pay his debt to Uncle Sam. He has never filed an income tax report. The interest on his debt is over $2,000 per day.

Tara and Nick go to a concert of his in an attempt to corral the sexy heartthrob. Tara believes him when he tells her it is all a mistake and he’ll make it right --- And she falls for this several times. Meanwhile poor Nick puts up with her drooling about Brazos……….. But for how long will he stand aside – and how long will it take Tara to wake up and do her job? … ……. The book was clever, but it was for someone much much younger than me. Not only did I want to shake Tara until she woke up, but all the sexual escapades and descriptions I find excessive.

    Another great Tara Holloway book but not my favorite. The tax storylines are good and interesting enough to keep you reading. BUT, that a big but, I don’t believe that Tara would be star struck and Gaga over a ridiculous singing cowboy.. She is too much of a “company man” to fall for that. I didn’t buy it. The story otherwise was intriguing and sad at times, RIP Nutty. Onto the next in the series- they’re worth it.

Enjoy the tale and grab a cup of tea - you won’t be disappointed

    I love this series! I really like Tara, Nick and the rest of the characters. I decided towards the end of the book that I enjoy that Tara is usually working on more than one case in each book. That keeps everything moving and exciting. There was a lot of action in this one and it's nice to know that taxes can be exciting but I'm probably more like Alicia and just want April 15th to be over. I also like how there is always a little teaser for Tara's next case at the end, even if by the time I get I love this series! I really like Tara, Nick and the rest of the characters.

    Tara is an IRS Special Agent and she's working on two cases. One is that of a young sexy country singer named Brazos Rivers who has never paid his taxes ... and they are accruing at over $2,000 a day! Every time Tara catches up with him, he has another excuse and she keeps falling for them. Needless to say, Nick, Tara's boyfriend, isn't too pleased with Tara's crush on Brazos. Her other case is the mysterious purchase every week in some serious cash of "drill bits" by the owner of an energy comp Tara is an IRS Special Agent and she's working on two cases.

Her other case is the mysterious purchase every week in some serious cash of "drill bits" by the owner of an energy company ... an employee rats her boss out prompting Tara to investigate. This is the seventh book in the Tara Holloway series (I've read the previous ones) and the eighth 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. I found the last two in the series just okay so it was good to see this one go back to being fun and sarcastic (in my opinion, the last two were missing this) ... I enjoyed it so much more. As a head's up, there is swearing and adult activity. I liked Tara ... she was the Tara of old. Her one year joboversary is coming and she's got to get these two cases settled before then. And she'll do whatever it takes to do that ... even if it means hanging out with goats. Something traumatic happens in Nick's world which makes him more human rather than just being the fun flirty boyfriend and sometimes partner to Tara.

    Special Agent Tara Holloway is having a rough time. Her plate is full. She is trying to collect back taxes from Brazos Rivers, the sexy country music star. He's a distraction. While she fantasizes about him, he gets away. On top of that her boyfriend, Nick is mad at her. Jealousy has reared it's ugly head. She's also looking into PPE, an energy company, involved in a costly lawsuit. Something's not right with Larry Burkett, the owner. What's he up to? Diane Kelly has done it again.

Nick is a charmer who is more than her match. I love their chemistry. The story is well plotted and I enjoyed the twists and turns. Death, Taxes and Silver Spurs is a charming combination of humor, romance and action. Diane Kelly just keeps getting better.

    Tara just came back on duty as an IRS special agent, and she has to be careful not to use her gun. Shouldn't be a problem, since her next assignment is telling super-hot Brazos Rivers to pay his back-taxes. She attends one of his concerts with boyfriend and fellow special agent Nick, and he's jealous... for no reason, at all, Tara thinks as she fans herself. The security guards don't believe Tara 'come back with a real policeman.'

Add lots of plot twists, and is Brazos a bad guy after all? or just a great musician under bad management, like Elvis? And maybe Nick ought to be jealous more often, since it gives Tara some really hot action scenes with him.

    In pursuing tax criminals, Tara Holloway ends up going after her favorite singer: Brazos Rivers, who has a lot to hide, especially his real name. Nick pitches in, mostly to keep Tara from losing her mind (and not gaining any traction on the case), but Eddie's there, too, helping out on the sleuthing she's doing over at the oil factory. While he's non-compliant, Rivers' interest is over $2,000 a day...and Tara's interest in him wanes in direct proportion. This entry seemed a bit off for Holloway..

Just didn't strike me as something she'd fall victim to. Overall review: Good series; not the best entry thus far but certainly a step above other novels. As always, Kelly brings wit, sassy characters, and multiple plot lines together for a win.

    Calling this one a 4.5 star read! This series is a favorite of mine and they're always good reads, but this one was just a little better than some of the others. Super hot country star, Brazos Rivers, hasn't paid any taxes in a few years and is in to Uncle Sam for millions. The big question is, is Tara going to be able to get over being star-struck long enough to do her job?? She's also been approached by a whistle-blower who's pretty sure there are some bad goings-on at the oil & gas drilling c Calling this one a 4.5 star read!

    I was a bit behind in this series and with a new book coming out in early August thought I should catch up on this series while i had some spare time. Tara is always a hoot, along with Lu, Nick, Eddie and the whole gang. There is a scene or two where Tara gets herself into quite a predicament and it reminds me a little bit of Stephanie Plum...not a lot, just a scene here or there. Either way, the book always has me laughing at the quirkiness of the characters and the expressions.

    I loved this book soo much. It made me laugh and cry. Reading the Tara Holloway Series is like having one of your really good friends come for a visit and you have a fabulous time but you are sad when it is over, but you can't wait for their next visit because you know it won' t be anything less than amazing!

    My go to series for laugh-out-loud entertainment! This author continues to provide hilarious adventures for Tara Holloway, IRS special agent - I would have thought by now that she would run out of fun, but no way does that happen! Thank you to the author for many hours of entertaining reading - I can't recommend this series enough.

    I always enjoy Tara and her fighting the tax criminal. Yay Nick loves her of coarse he does even though she went a little fangirl for a country singer who was way behind on paying taxes. So glad she snapped out of that. Poor Nutty :(.

    This is the seventh book in this series. Tara is trying to get Brazos Rivers who is a country singer to pay his taxes. Hits many roadblocks with trying to get the money from him. She also is investigating whether someone from an oil company is paying someone off.

    I just love this series! I never knew the IRS could be so exciting. This book is an excellent continuation of the series, but I'd recommend new readers start with the first book so they can follow Tara's growth.

    I really enjoy this series, and this book is no exception. It is a good mystery with good characters and a good plot. It is always interesting to see what Tara is going to do, and what mess she inadvertently gets into. I will be eager to read the next one in the series.
