Tara Holloway Synopsis: Death, Taxes and a French Manicure by Diane Kelly is the first book in the Tara Holloway series. Tara finds her in hot pursuit of ice cream vendor Joseph “Joe Cool” Cullen. He’s not only selling ice cream, but drugs as well, and he’s not reporting his income on his tax returns. Over Tara’s dead body. There’s also Michael Gryder, who looks to be operating a Ponzi scheme… with banker Stan Shelton… whose lake house is being landscaped by Brett Ellington… who happens to be seeing Tara. If following that money trail isn’t difficult enough, now Tara must face a new challenge: Should she invest her trust in Brett – or put him behind bars? New love always comes at a cost, but justice is priceless.
