"I tried to keep watch on all the entrances to the backyard like Kate had told me to do , but I was too fascinated by the lock picking set in her nimble fingers. I wondered if they’d teach me to do that stuff in classes to become a private detective. Somehow, I was thinking that wasn’t a skill they wanted to teach to the general public. She had the door open in a matter of seconds, and when she gestured for me to join her, I ran to her side like the great loping gazelle I was— almost slipping on ...more

Another Fun Read

The best thing about the Addison Holmes series is that it's an easy fun read. The pacing is excellent. The characters are brilliant. Addison is beyond likable. Everyone has or wants a friend like her. The mystery is always interesting even if a bit fluffy. It's definitely chick mystery, but the reveal is always satisfying. There is romance, but I wouldn't really call this romantic mystery. There needs to be more development on that front to warrant that description. Don't get me

Whiskey Sour begins when Addison and Nick are talking again, but things may not be all that great, especially when Addison decides to help the FBI and get her private detective license. While she's having these issues, she's also having issues living with her mother and her mom's new boyfriend.

This book was actually very good. At first, I thought it was sort of slow to get into and I don't like when the prologue gives you more information, but I was hap
I'm hooked. Straight onto the next book in the series, no question about it. I've grown quite fond of Addison, the accident prone disaster magnet. The humour in these books is spot on.

This series is a bit of dumb fun. It has a lot in common with the Stephanie Plum series. Definitely parts that made me giggle.

I have to be honest and say that when I read the first book I thought Addison was kind of a clueless ditz. Then the friend who recommended that I read the book pointed out that the reason she had thought I'd like it was that Addison is so much like me. I went back and thought about it, and darned if she isn't right! I would totally fall out of the tree and get stuck at the top of the fence. Totally. That being said....

This is book two in the series, and like book 1 it ended with lots of room for

I loved this book Liliana. I just love Addison. Sometimes she is so much like me when I was younger. She is such a clumsy person, but you have to love her. This book is about Addison and her work with the Detective agency. She gets fired from her teaching job and decides she wants to become an detective She also gets involved with a fellow worker Nick. They have been attracted to each other for some time and they finally enter into a relationship of sorts. Addison isn't sure how Nick feels about ...more

Another awesome novel in the Addison Holmes series! Addison while goofy and a little frustrating at times, is a very likable character that I felt I could relate to very easily (especially when it comes to her addiction to sweets). The action and romance in this book is off the scales and incredibly fun and funny to read. It's a quick and easy novel to sink your teeth into when you're feeling down and need a good laugh. While the love triangle gets a little irritating you can't help but enjoy bo ...more

I adore Addison Holmes. She makes me laugh like no other heroine has in a while. I loved Whiskey Rebellion, but I think I enjoyed the second book even more. The secondary characters are well-drawn and likeable. Great chemistry between the two main characters. Adding a new potential love interest was a great twist and complication for poor Addison to stumble through. The mystery was such a minor subplot for me -- I just wanted to see what trouble Addison was going to get into next.

Meh. The characters are engaging enough for me to want to keep reading to find out what happens, but the book is still very poorly edited/proofread - the kinds of errors that spellcheck wouldn't catch, but an actual person would - like when she said that a particular person's reaction was a "very good sigh" (meaning it boded well for the future).

Ez a rész határozottan jobb volt, mint az előző, szinte dőltem a röhögéstől amikor olvastam, úgyhogy kedvenc sorozat is lett belőle. Már alig várom, hogy a folytatást is a kezembe vehessem.

Addison has been working part-time at her friend, Kate's detective agency. Kate has been hired to help find out what happened to some stolen jewels that a designer had bought in an auction but never received and the murder of the courier who was transporting the jewels. Because Addison doesn't come across as an experienced investigator (because she isn't), she is brought in as part of the investigation.

In the meantime, Addison and Nick, the police officer involved in this case, are trying to fig

I abandoned this book after reading only 10 pages - I found the breezy style too fake and cheesy. Here's a few lines from those first few pages:
"His muscles had muscles and I was pretty sure it wasn't his gun pressing into my belly..."
"I waited for the sound of gunfire and for hot metal to rip through my skin, but there was nothing but tense silence..."
"Just remember, that payback's a bitch, sweetheart..."
"The air was thick with syrupy humidity..."

So here's the thing about these books (I'm only through book 2, so I reserve the right to change my mind later in the series): Addison drives me up a wall. But apparently in a good way? Honestly, I actually like her (most of the time). You know, when I don't want to pull her aside and shake her. Because she makes terrible choices. But she knows they're terrible. Or at least figures it out fairly quickly. Not to mention that she makes me laugh.

My one complaint with this one is that the big myste

I love this series, and probably anyone who loves Stephanie Plum will too. There is a lot of similarity between them, but enough differences to keep it entertaining. Addison works for her girlfriend, who is a legitimate detective, doing odd jobs and surveillance. She lives in the South. The similarities are that she always messes up, doesn't quite know what she is doing, eats poorly, has no money, men and sex are a big part of it, and it is hilarious. The plot is almost a minor part of the story ...more

9/10: Fantastic, left me wanting more.

No, no, no! You can't leave it like that! Arghh!

But, heart breaking endings aside, this was a great follow up to book one.

Nick. Nick. Oh, Nick.

He paused a minute to kiss me, his tongue stroking mine in a way that told me Nick would be the type of man who left no stone unturned when it came to bedding a woman. He’d be a vaginal Magellan.

And the laughs made it even better...

Along with this author, I purchased - by mistake - another author who wrote using the same title. This time I was in for a surprise. The book made me laugh. The "heroine", main character, is a total klutz, has foot-in-mouth disease, and is of total Southern stock. These aren't usually paired up but in this case it worked. It's a little steamy, for the adults out there that enjoy that aspect, and the plot is mild but not heavy. Want to laugh a bit? Get the book!

Very like Kinsey Milhone, clever, cute, laugh out loud funny.

I like Addison and the people in her life. The problem I had was the plot was almost secondary to all the sex she was having. It was a bit much. But I did like her antics and she did make me laugh and that is always a positive. a few errors in spelling ,i.e. StationAry instead of StationEry etc. Overall a fun and enjoyable read that I do recommend.

This is a hard book to rate. On one hand, I found it enjoyable. On the other hand, I only picked it up when I didn't have anything else handy. I wasn't invested in the mystery part. I didn't care one way or the other. Maybe if we had some interaction from the antagonist?? Addison is a train wreck, but I guess that's what makes this book so entertaining. I'm not sure.

My friend loves this series, so I might recommend it to the right person.

Things pick up shortly where the first book left off. There's a new guy on the scene to mix things up a bit but for the most part this story is just as entertaining as the first book was. Things are changing in Addison's life and its as of yet to be determined whether or not that's a good thing. Definitely going to read the next book.

Ok story

Not my kind of characters. Not enough mystery and too much ogling the opposite sex and jumping in bed then deciding it wouldn't work. The best friends didn't come off as a real relationship to me. I thought the main character was a very immature 30 year old. Perhaps it's a series for younger people.

This is my second time reading this book and it actually was better than the first time. I love Addison! Her positive outlook on life is inspiring. I laughed out loud because I could actually picture and hear these conversations taking place. I enjoy reading the Addison Holmes series because it’s a fun and sexy read. Definitely a must read!
