I received this book as a freebie at RT15.

I know Liliana Hart is a hugely popular author, but I didn't finish this book. It was fine and there were definitely some funny parts, but I got tired of hearing so much about the hotness of the heroine and the two heroes. About two thirds of the way through Whiskey for Breakfast and after reading endless passages about how Addison felt about her ex and how hot she found Savage (really? his name is Savage?), I got tired of the endless back and forth betw

These books get better and better!! Some great new colorful characters in this one. Great mystery and love, with the added bonus of non-stop comedy....anxious to dive into book 4!

Loved this fun-filled well-written mystery!

I laughed out loud, snickered too. If you’re looking for a light exciting plot-filled good mystery, pick up this book. Giggles guaranteed.

Addison is a former high school history teacher who is now working part-time at her friend, Kate's detective agency. She is studying and training to become a full-time PI. Her cases include the search for a missing old woman (she has changed her name and moved into a different senior's home), a billionaire who is dying and wants to find his only heir (the product of a sperm donation in the 1940s) and a wife suspected of cheating. Because of a prior case, Addison is being threatened by a killer w ...more
There is just something so appealing about this series. Addison is a certified hotmess, but ya gotta love her. She falls int solving her cases despite her best efforts to mess things up. It a wonder the girl has survived, they should have a special room at the hospital just for her!

I have said in the past that I think Savage is a better match for her in the romance department, but Ms Hart is determined to have us think she should be with Nick. Maybe she is just the girl to get him to lighten up

Another Holmes Hit for Hart!! I want MORE! I've just read the first three books in the Addison Holmes series in the last week! All I can say is I want more!! There is steamy romance, never ending interruptions (usually related to a dead body), and belly rolling laughter! If you need a pick-me up give this series a try, I think you will agree and LOVE it! And now a bit about the story...

Addison Holmes is still an unemployed spy in training. She is working to get her PI license, but has to finish

Okay so I am not downing this book at all, was away to good for a bad review, lol....but I am going to get on the author about ending the book the way she did!! What is that about, so not fair!!! Haha!! Now I am going to have to wait forever for the next one to see what happens!!

Okay enough ranting about the ending!! Overall, like the rest of the books in this series (which I re-read before this one)Whiskey for Breakfast was a great, fun and entertaining book. It had my giggling pretty much thro

Wow, talk about an author that can make me put sleep on hold to read a book in 24 hrs. Well, I have read the previous books in the series and I'm already anticipating #4. What I love the most about this series is it's a great combination of mystery, love and comedy yet never straying off course of the main genre of mystery. Liliana Hart is a refreshing author that makes reading fun and stirs the imagination by trying to let you anticipate what's next.
Addison Holmes is a riot, the 'scrapes' that
GAHHHHH!!!! LOVE this series. Anybody that like Janet Evonovich should read these they are ahhhmazing and no offense stephanie i like addison more:).

Addison does it again

9/10: Fantastic, left me wanting more.

These just get better and better. Love the humour.

Uncle Milton had been a firm believer in male enhancement and erectile dysfunction medication. Not that it had done him a lot of good in the end. They’d had a hell of a time getting Milton’s coffin closed, and I shudder to think how scarred the poor intern was who was relegated to massaging out the rigor.

Love Nick.

“I know, babe. Believe me, I know.”

I really like Savage too, but hope the love triangle is resol

Ups and downs in the tumultuous love life of Addison Holmes. Lots of good cases, especially with searching for the heir of a rich man who had donated sperm years previously, but knew only a few bits of information on who received the sperm. Another case revolves around s drug lord who has lots of cops and even s judge on his payroll, so he's tough to catch.

Addison is confused about the two men in her life. Savage is a good guy, but Addison doesn't give up on Nick, and they go through a complica

Hart/whiskey for breakfast:an Addison Holmes mystery

This series is the best yet ,even though the others were good, but I never laughed so hard at Addison ,p.i. In training and her misfortune cluzt that keeps happening to her.

The plots are so superfluous to these books. Ha, guess you would never have thought I would say that, or read a book like this. But, it is summertime, and this is just fun, light stuff. Lots of humor, and mainly lots of hot sex, with a little story line around it of trying to figure out who killed the old dying guy and who his heir is. Great literature this is not, and lots of typos, but still I zipped right through it. One great line goes something like this - "I went to eat the great homemade ...more

Things have improved for Addison this time around, she's got her own place, she's getting jobs to do, and while her mom has some new quirks she doesn't seem as focused on her anymore. The dynamics have changed between Addison and Savage but its a good change and things are even better for her and Nick. Can't wait to start the next book.

Another Great Addition To The Series

Everything fit so well in this book. From the life struggles to the suspense, there was never a dull moment. This is a great book for anyone who enjoys a little romance with their mysteries.

Excellent book!

Very funny and an excellent mystery!! Addison is a girl after my own heart. I love that she isn't perfect! There is a bit of a cliffhanger at the end, but the next book is out so it's okay.

Hot and hilarious

The story is wonderful, but the word pictures Liliana Hart paints cause the story to blossom in layers of color. The heroine has a forthright sense of humor that had me laughing out loud.

Best Yet

I read the first two and didn’t think them much more than something to keep me occupied on long plane trips. But Hart reached her stride by this one. I’m now looking forward to,the next.

A private investigator in training, a NAD Squad (Neighborhood watch), a very sexy FBI agent, an equally sexy Savannah Cop, and dead people. I didn’t get any whiskey, but I did enjoy the story and recommend the book.

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).
