Tax Cut by Michele Lynn Seigfried

“I saw him,” she said. “He handed an envelope filled with money to the tooth fairy.”
      The ramblings of eighty-nine-year-old woman with dementia.  The government employees are used to her regular phone calls and dismiss the crazy old lady; but the new municipal clerk, Chelsey Alton, isn’t so sure the woman is off her rocker.  Something’s amiss in the Village of Coral Beach, a small, New Jersey shore town community, and Chelsey’s determined to find out what it is.
     The former clerk of Coral Beach, Vinny Buttiglieri was murdered and dead bodies keep popping up all over town.  Between being a single mom to a temper tantrum throwing two-year-old, bosses who humiliate her in public, the dead bodies, and a man named Mike Nero that is stalking her, she has her hands quite full!
     Chelsey recruits her good friend, Bonnie, a voluptuous woman with an off-color sense of humor, to assist her on a few recon missions. The deeper they dig, the more they put themselves in danger, becoming entangled with sinister mobsters, criminal activity, and government corruption.
     Not everything is as it seems. Chelsey thinks she’s doing the right thing, trying to uncover the truth and protect herself at the same time, but can she save herself when she becomes entrenched too deep in this Jersey shore mystery?

~~I received this book en exchange for an honest review~~

This book had many twists and turns in it that I didn't see coming at all. Chelsey is the Municipal Clerk for Coral Beach, and did she get thrown into a shit storm. She is picking up basically where the previous Municipal Clerk left off. There is something going on in that little town, but she can't quite put her finger on what it is. With her friend Bonnie by her side, and a couple of good looking men to stare at, can she do her job?

This is the first book that I have read by Michele. It isn't going to be the last at all. The writing that she has done in this book kept me on my toes until I finished the book. I totally didn't see the twists that happened in this book at all. This is a breath of fresh air, you think it is one thing, but then it turns out totally different. I love it!
