Title: Whiskey, You’re the Devil – Addison Holmes Mystery #4
Author: Liliana Hart
Review: Addison Holmes is about to take her P.I exam while living in Sin with her boyfriend and right when everything seem to be going in the right direction Rosemaire Valentines fingerprints are found on a murder weapon used to kill a Sex shop owner. Addison calls on the gang to help solve the case before Rosemarie is tossed into jail with no hope. So with the help of Nick, Savage, Kate, her sister and mom what could possibly go wrong? Well - Everything.
I couldn't wait for this book to come out and at 10pm because that when it was loaded on to my Kindle I started to read and found myself and half an hour later putting it book down and going to bed because it was missing something. When I finished reading Whiskey You're The Devil the only words that came to mind is flat. The story fell flat, the characters fell flat and yes there was humor and fun but something just didn't seem to flow right. I had so much hope for this book but instead from the same characters doing the same things without any growth made for one uninteresting story. Addison is still finding herself in awkward situations that have tons of humor but everyone else fell flat. At first I was laughing so hard and her cases were interesting but before I knew it the book wrapped everything into a nice little bow with very little action. Everything was "Solved" in a few short paragraphs which made me feel a little short changed. I love this series and I pray that Liliana Hart doesn't decided to go with the Stephanie Plum where it’s an endless love struggle between "Two Hot guys" and no character development. The cliff hanger from the last book is answered but it took awhile. The dinner scene with mom, the lawyer, her sister and Rosemarie had me laughing so hard but that is when everything ended. After that if felt like the author thought it would be good to slap them here and there making the book choppy. She gave us another cliff hanger and since there are two more books in the series which makes me hope for some development in the next book.

Author Information: Liliana Hart spent five years teaching music in the public education system. She molded America’s youth, busted kids for smoking pot in the restrooms, and broke up illicit affairs behind the stage on a regular basis. (Liliana’s Addison Holmes Mystery Series, about a small town teacher who gets into a whole lot of trouble, is somewhat autobiographical, but she won’t confess to which parts).
Liliana began reading romance novels with all her new found free time, and when she ran out of things to read, she decided to write her own novels. The result was a 150,000 word thriller—a dazzling adventure—where the heroine was a thirty-year-old virgin assassin (Yes, you read that right). She couldn’t imagine why people weren’t knocking down her door to read it, but she persevered and began writing a second book. She finally got the hang of things, and eventually learned that losing one’s virginity wasn’t all that romantic after all. All of her books involve some kind of suspense (she just can't help herself), laughter, and a lot of steamy sex.
Since the failure of her first attempt, Liliana’s books have won awards such as: The Daphne Du Maurier, The Suzannah, The Linda Howard Award of Excellence, The Maggie, and many others. Her affiliations include Romance Writers of America and Mystery Writers of America.
Liliana loves to cook, and is addicted to reading, Internet Boggle, kickboxing, and Bones. She lives in a big, rambling house in Texas with a couple of cats to keep her company. She loves to get emails from readers.
Enjoy the Adventures!
