WILL THIS KILLER DEAL LEAD TO A DEAD END?
Meet Whitney Whitaker. A hopeless romantic when it comes to real estate, she knows what it takes to find—and flip—the home of one’s dreams. A fixer-upper is like catnip to Whitney: she can’t resist the challenge of turning an eyesore into a priceless work of art. So when one of her clients decides to liquidate a crumbling property, Whitney seizes the opportunity to purchase it for a song. But soon a curious incident of the cat in the night-time leads to a change in tune. . .
Sawdust is the name of Whitney’s cat—of course. Whitney’s passion for gut-renovation may be a mystery to him but one thing Sawdust knows for sure is this: Dead bodies don’t belong in flower beds. So why is there one in this new, albeit old, house? Now it’s up to Whitney, along with the help of hot-and-cold Nashville Police Detective Collin Flynn, to find the truth about what happened before the mortgage property forecloses and Whitney loses her investment. . .and maybe her own life.

So maybe it goes without saying that IRS Special Agent Tara Holloway is star-struck? In Diane Kelly's Death, Taxes, and Silver Spurs, she's head over heels...in trouble.
Easy's getting harder every day for Tara. A tax-evading pet groomer managed to buzz off a big chunk of her hair...just in time for her date strictly-business meeting with country-music heartthrob Brazos Rivers. Of course Tara shouldn't care-she's devoted to Special Agent Nick Pratt, after all-but Rivers does know how to steal a woman's heart with a song...
"Better than a refund check from the IRS!"

Meanwhile, Tara's up to her fracking neck with another case: A natural-gas company with a money trail that is almost as suspicious as Brazos Rivers's tax return. Which is to say, he can't seem to cough up one. Tara figures the misdeeds of her celebrity crush must be an oversight. But will she dance to a different tune...when her tax-evading idol starts evading her, too?
"TARA HOLLOWAY IS THE IRS'S ANSWER TO STEPHANIE PLUM-SMART, SASSY, AND SO MUCH FUN."
