Whiskey Rebellion

Addison Holmes Mystery, #1

I have to say that I absolutely loved this book. This was the first of Ms. Hart's books that I've read and she definitely made a new fan in me now! She added just enough humor in her storyline to make her readers laugh out loud over Addison's antics. I just couldn't help but fall in love with Addison because she just seemed to have terrible luck in everything she did. She was the kind of person that always seemed to be at the wrong place at the wrong time and because of this it made the storyline really comical for me. If you're looking for a lighthearted read that you'll definitely laugh your way through while turning the pages, than you should consider reading Whiskey Rebellion.

Book Blurb for Whiskey Rebellion

My name is Addison Holmes, and I teach history at James Madison High School in Whiskey Bayou, Georgia. You might be under the assumption that my life went to the dogs when my fiancé left me at the altar for the home economics teacher, or when I got notice that my apartment building was going to be condemned, or even when I was desperate enough to strip to my unmentionables to earn some extra cash so I could buy a house. The truth is that I'm pretty much used to disasters following me around on a daily basis, but I could have gone without finding my principal dead in the parking lot of a seedy gentlemen's club.

After the initial shock of finding my first dead body, which included throwing back shots of Jack Daniels like it was water, I decided to take stock of my life. I was in a desperate situation and if the school board ever found out I'd been a stripper, even a bad stripper, I'd be jobless as well as fiancé-less and homeless. Fortunately, I had a friend who felt sorry enough for me to give me a job doing some surveillance work at her detective agency. And it didn't bother me one bit that it was the equivalent of a pity fuck. Money is money, and I was about to be homeless. Not to mention the fact that I was now able to stick my nose into other people's business for a good cause, find a murderer and pick up helpful tips from an incredibly attractive detective.
