Heaven's first rule to becoming a guardian angel: Earn your wings. Seriously. Harder than I anticipated. Being the Southern ghost that I am, I've followed all the rules strictly by the book. Well, almost. Some things don't count. Like kissing the lead sword-fighting instructor behind headquarters for the Council of Noble Purposes. And now, because someone snitched, I'm being dispatched on a solo mission to close a demonic portal opened by a bunch of trouble-making teenagers fooling around with a spirit board. An innocent Christmas party trick gone bad. Sure, it sounds harmless, but Saint Peter isn't laughing. Santa's unlikely sidekick, Krampus is loose and stirring up big trouble in Whiskey Creek, Georgia. With the countdown to Christmas ticking away, my only authorized equipment is one winged horse and a slick new pair of white leather chaps and bullwhip. Yay! Tis the season to be jolly. Now, where's my sleigh?
'Tis the season for death, taxes, and maybe even love under the mistletoe... Death, Taxes, and Mistletoe Mayhem is a brand-new holiday novella from award-winning author Diane Kelly! Christmas is fast approaching when IRS Special Agent Tara is assigned a new case involving a jewelry wholesaler who's repeatedly claimed large theft losses on her tax returns. Was Nadine Gramercy really robbed, or were the thefts a mere ruse to pocket tax-free profits? Tara believes Nadine belongs at the top of Santa's "naughty" list. Her investigation takes her to Chisholm Trail mall, where she meets Fort Worth Police Officer Megan Luz and her fluffy K-9 partner, Brigit. Though Megan believes Tara is barking up the wrong tree, she agrees to provide backup if a bust goes down. Moreover, they decide to team up as matchmakers to find love for Chris Rasmussen, a pediatric nurse who moonlights at the mall playing Santa Claus. Chris has a warm heart and a body that's hot enough to melt to the polar ice caps. This sexy-yet-sad shopping mall Santa was recently dumped by his fickle fiancée, leaving the not-so-old elf more jilted than jolly. Can Tara and Megan solve the crime...and lift Santa's spirits in time for Christmas? Look for Death, Taxes, and Green Tea Ice Cream—available now!—from St. Martin's Paperbacks. Praise for Diane Kelly's Tara Holloway novels: "Smart, sassy, and so much fun!"—New York Times bestselling author Gemma Halliday "Better than a refund check from the IRS!" —Reader to Reader Reviews "Tara Holloway [is] a kindred spirit to Stephanie Plum: feisty and tenacious...laughs and nonstop action."—RT Book Reviews ABOUT THE AUTHOR Diane Kelly is a former CPA and tax attorney, who had several brushes with white-collar criminals during her career.
