But this time IRS Special Agent Tara Holloway is in over her head—and challenging every dietary law in the book. . .

When the IRS is tasked with assisting the border patrol in pursuing unscrupulous “coyotes” who’ve transported illegal immigrants across the border, Tara finds herself at odds. Not only must she investigate Brett Ellington, her old flame whose landscaping business employs such workers, but now Tara has to convince her new romantic partner in crime, Nick Pratt, that she doesn’t still carry a torch for Brett. #stresseating #greaseistheword

Now, in addition to proving her love to her own fiancé, Tara is on the hunt for a trail of bogus 1099s in the Dallas area. Someone, somewhere is using the IRS as a pawn in a cunning game of revenge. Will Tara be able to identify the culprit making the false tax reports—before her sweet-potato-fry addiction forces her to get her engagement ring resized? That is, if jealousy doesn’t get the best of Nick first...

This is one of my favorite series and the author has, once again, demonstrated why. Tara Holloway is an IRS special agent investigating cheats after other attempts to collect have failed. Tara is a tiny little thing with phenomenal shooting skills and kick ass cherry red Doc Martins to, well, kick ass with their steel toes. In this novel, the romance between Tara and Nick has progressed and they are now engaged. While they both want to be married, neither want to plan a wedding.....cue their moms to take over. Tara finds herself investigating both a human traffic coyote and a tax fraud sending false 1099's of lottery winnings. The coyote is her higher priority as people are dying and they have to find a way to lock him up as well as find three girls he's kidnapped. Unfortunately, one of the 1099 victims is leaning on his congressman to get action. Of course, nothing goes as it should, leading to moments of humor and great story. If you enjoy smartly written chick lit, you will love this book. While it is part of a series, it is a stand alone novel. However, the series is so good that you really owe it to yourself to read them all.

Tara is the IRS agent you don't want to get on the bad side of. But she has a soft heart for the underdog.
