Book Description


Can IRS Special Agent Tara Holloway break up a clever ring of tax cheats who love money, dishonor the IRS, and disobey the laws of justice?

When Tara agreed to be her best friend’s maid of honor, she knew it would be a ton of work. But planning a bachelorette party is a piece of (wedding) cake compared to her latest mission for the IRS. Her target is radio host Florence “Flo” Cash, star of “The Flo Cash Cash Flow Show.” Not only has Flo been giving her listeners shady tax advice, she’s set up an elaborate barter system that leaves Uncle Sam out of the equation―and Tara tied in knots…

While Flo flouts the IRS at every turn, Tara has yet another case to tackle: a catfishing Casanova who’s relieved several lonely ladies of their cash, credit cards, and dignity. When her best friend’s big day arrives, it’s all Tara can do to keep from crying uncle. But when Tara snatches the bridal bouquet and her boyfriend Nick catches the satin garter, could Tara’s days of filing single tax returns be over?

My Review

Death, Taxes, and a Satin Garter is the tenth book in the Tara Holloway mystery series by author Diane Kelly. This is the first book of Kelly's that I have read.

IRS Special Agent Tara Holloway is involved in her best friend's wedding. As Maid of Honour she has plenty to do. But work calls and Tara is in the midst of an investigation involving radio station owner and radio host Florence “Flo” Cash, star of “The Flo Cash Cash Flow Show.” Something fishy is going on. And yet another investigation involving duped women and catfishing.

I found the characters in Death, Taxes and a Satin Garter to be quite entertaining. In fact, this book is quite humourous. This is a great book for fans of cozy mysteries.

Fun story and situations. I recommend Death, Taxes and a Satin Garter for readers of cozies and readers of humourous mysteries.
