My Review: Tax Cut by Michelle Lynn Seigfried


Good mystery. Fun Characters, Good plot twists. Well told story that keeps your attention. Also a clean read.

I was always trying to figure out who or what was going on. It unfolded the mystery a little at a time.

Chelsey Alton heard through a friend that a job in her field was open because the last one was murdered.
Chelsey decided to go back to work because of the job opening. As a Municipal Clerk for Coral Beach. It was close enough to commute to work and her parents could babysit her daughter. Chelsey's finds a letter from the previous clerk that say's if he is dead it was his bosses fault.

Chelsey is a single mom of a two year old. She is excited to date a guy she met at New Year's Eve party. He is a single father too. Her first day on the job she meets a guy who starts stalking her. A Seenior citizen that has memory problems calls complaining about too many birds, tooth fairy, dead bodies. Her bosses are not that friendly. Maybe the mob is involved with the clerk's death.

Also the previous secretary had quit before she came to work so she told her friend Bonnie about the job who she worked with before about it. Bonnie is married to a Doctor but she likes to look and flirt with other guys. Bonnie is funny and likeable.

The setting is on a island in New Jersey.

The pacing is good and unfolds the story at a steady pace. I think I would have reported her stalker right away when he would not take a no.

I would like to back and read the first book Red Tape in the series and see how it all unfolded too. I would read another book in the series.

Their is drama, action, romance and lots of humor in Tax Cut.

I was given this ebook to read and in return for being part of its book tour and to give honest review of Tax Cut.
