Editorial Reviews


Romancing the Book - "An entertaining, fun read." 

Romanceaholic Book Review - "This book is hysterical. It's a true comedy of errors...A perfect summer read... lighthearted and funny"

From the Back Cover

In Whiskey Bayou, Georgia, the humidity is thick, the gossip juicy, and family is everything. For Addison Holmes, she's just trying to get by, and teaching history to a bunch of hormonal teenagers isn't exactly lining her pockets. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Who would've guessed her principal would be in the audience of the strip club that hired her?

Addison is almost positive her life can't get any worse. Until she stumbles over her principal's dead body in the parking lot. There's no way Whiskey Bayou won't hear about that juicy tidbit, which means she's likely to be out of a job. 

Thank goodness for Kate McClean. Addison's best friend owns The McClean Detective Agency, and sometimes it's good to have friends in high places. Or at least places that can offer a girl a job to spy on low-lifes and adulterers. But when her principal's murder intersects with her new job, this gum-shoe learns fast that she knows nothing about catching bad guys. Fortunately, the sexy detective in charge is there to lend a hand.

More About the Author

Liliana Hart is a New York Times, USA Today, and Publisher's Weekly Bestselling Author of more than 40 titles. After starting her first novel her freshman year of college, she immediately became addicted to writing and knew she'd found what she was meant to do with her life. She has no idea why she majored in music.

Since self-publishing in June of 2011, Liliana has sold more than 3 million ebooks and been translated into eight languages. She's appeared at #1 on lists all over the world and all three of her series have appeared on the New York Times list. Liliana is a sought after speaker and she's given keynote speeches and self-publishing workshops to standing-room-only crowds from California to New York to London.

Liliana can almost always be found at her computer writing or on the road giving workshops for SilverHart International, a company she founded with her partner, Scott Silverii, where they provide law enforcement, military, and fire resources for writers so they can write it right. Liliana is a recent transplant to Southern Louisiana, where she's getting used to the humidity and hurricane season, and plotting murders (for her books, of course).

1.) I have a Coke first thing every morning instead of coffee.

2.) I try to read at least one book a day (when I'm not on deadline), sometimes two or three if I have the itch. Reading is one of my greatest pleasures.

3.) I decided to be a writer my freshman year of college. Which, of course, is why I majored in music and art history.

4.) I started writing my first book when I was eighteen. It was about a 30-year-old virgin assassin. Yes, you read that right. It's buried in the far corner of my closet.

5.) I didn't complete my first book until I was twenty-five, but 40 titles since then. I'm 35.

6.) I love being a writer. It gives me an excuse to think about different ways to kill people and to take weird vacations for the tax deductions.

7.) I could eat macaroni and cheese every day. I love it! But my hips do not.

8.) I'm very slow to make new friends. I'm a pretty solitary person, so when you see me at booksignings and conventions, I'm completely out of my comfort zone, which is why it's so nice when I have readers come up and talk to me like they already know me. It puts me at ease.

9.) My favorite cities to visit are: New Orleans--Galway, Ireland--Sonoma--Knoxville

10.) I like Milk Duds more than I probably should. I'm sure one day it'll catch up to me.

11.) I love to travel. I'm perfectly content to wake up on a random morning and say, I'm going here today." And then I'll buy a plane ticket and pack a suitcase. There are still so many places I'd love to see.

12.) I spent a summer in Ireland when I was in college with a random family I'd never met or spoken to before. It was one of the bravest and most adventurous things I've done. A great experience.

13.) I hated high school. If I could go back and do it over I'd try to graduate early and get the heck out of there.

14.) I have a weakness for fast cars.

15.) I performed at Carnegie Hall when I was in college and toured Europe with a percussion ensemble one summer.

16.) I spent four years in college majoring in Percussion. It is now completely useless since I'm writing books full time, but it does give me an advantage when playing Rock Band.

17.) I like gaming. When I take vacations between books, a good part of the time goes to playing RPGs.

18.) The cleanest place I've ever been is Switzerland.

19.) I don't gamble. When I go to Vegas I spend my time at concerts and shows.

20.) Purple is my favorite color. Go Frogs! (TCU alum)

21.) I love a good mystery.

22.) I've had impacted wisdom teeth for years, but I have no desire to get them taken out.

23.) My husband and I are terrible skiers. We know this from experience.

24.) I like to sit down in the shower. I'll often stick my Kindle in a plastic bag and read in there for an hour.

25.) I spend a lot of time thinking of ways to kill people, and I have a tendency to zone out in the middle of a conversation if it's a really good idea.

This offering from author, Liliana Hart, is a real charmer.

Engaging, quirky, and humorously cursed with bad luck, history teacher turned detective, Addison Holmes (not to be confused with Sherlock or Katie), has to roll with the punches as she solves the mystery of her high school principal's apparent murder in the alley behind a seedy strip club. But the principal's death proves to be only the tip of the investigative iceberg. There are more dead bodies in her future

Holmes is an exceedingly likeable character who manages to get herself into all sorts of unusual "situations." Hart's heroine smacks of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum or Lois Greiman's Chrissy McMullen. The plot moves along at a good clip. (If you read a lot, you can probably read this book in an afternoon.) And there are a number of "laugh out loud" moments throughout the book.

In all honestly, there were a few more proofreading issues than I would have preferred to see. But they weren't frequent enough or of great enough consequence to keep me from enjoying the read. It's well worth the $2.99 price tag.

I'd like to see Hart continue the Holmes series. As Evanovich winds down, writers like Hart and Greiman have proven that they can pick up the slack.

Delightful book, Ms. Hart.

Let me sum up the reviews for you: It's witty and clever. It's gripping and suspenseful. There's a bit of romance if that's your thing. There is literally something for everyone. Even the most casual reader will find a reason to keep the pages turning. Good stuff.

Addison is a delight. Ms. Hart has constructed a well-developed plot with enough twists to keep me reading long past bedtime. I'll be looking for more books in this series as I'm especially interested in how Addison is going to grow as a character.

I started out liking this book, but about half way through, it went downhill and never quite recovered. The humor in the first part of the book was quite a bit like watching some slapstick comedy. The heroine Addison Holmes was likable in the beginning, but as the story wore on, she became someone I grew to despise. She was definitely not someone I would like my own children to have had as a teacher. A preview of another book was at the end, but by then I had my fill of Ms. Hart's writing.

I never find stupid funny. The protagonist - is just plain stupid, not witty, nor charming. Luckily I got this book cheap, I'd be very angry if I spent any thing more than the $4 I paid. If there is a mystery in it,I couldn't find it. There's no suspense, about the murder, the characters, anything. Do not waste your time.

I'm giving this book one star because there is no "no stars" option. To call this a comedy is ridiculous. What's funny about Addison? And how did someone so stupid get to be a teacher? Romance? A cop who, upon first meeting her, spends all his detecting time trying to get her into bed, with boring descriptions of her sexual bodily functions (i.e., wet panties, ugh!). Mystery? The only mystery is how this really inferior book made it to Amazon. I expected more discernment from a company in the book business. Well, it was free. And not worth that.

If you want a book that is fun & quirky, with great characters, then Whiskey Rebellion is the book for you. Addison was a great heroine and her mother was a hoot who added wonderfully to the story. Addison might have been down on her luck, but she wasn't a quitter. This is a must read with humor and mystery. Can't wait for book two Whiskey Sour.
