Book #1 in the Tara Holloway series:

Tara Holloway has got your number. A special agent on the IRS’s payroll, she’s dead-set on making sure that money crimes don’t pay…

Tax cheats, beware: The Treasury Department’s Criminal Investigations Division has a new special agent on its payroll. A recovering tomboy with a head for numbers, Tara’s fast becoming the Annie Oakley of the IRS—kicking ass, taking social security numbers, and keeping the world safe for honest taxpayers. Or else.

Tara’s latest mission finds her in hot pursuit of ice-cream vendor Joseph “Joe Cool” Cullen. Along with frozen treats he’s selling narcotics—and failing to report his ill-gotten gains on his tax returns. Over Tara’s dead body. Then there’s Michael Gryder, who appears to be operating a Ponzi scheme…with banker Stan Shelton…whose lake house is being landscaped by Brett Ellington…who happens to be dating Tara. If following that money trail isn’t tough enough, now Tara must face a new conundrum: Should she invest her trust in Brett—or put him behind bars? New love always comes at a cost but justice? Priceless.

My Review: This was a fun read. Tara Holloway is almost as funny as Stephanie Plum. It's a mystery, combined with a romance with a lot of humor thrown in.

First book of the series and first time I have read the author. I liked the main character Tara. She's a smart and strong woman. And I liked how the author put a little romance into the story. Overall, the story was slow moving with a little too much information about taxes. I found I kept putting it down and wasn't in a rush to pick it up again.
