Book ~ "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" (2016) Liliana Hart

From Goodreads ~ Addison sets out to discover who stole a kidney from her newest client - a kidney that was still very much attached to its owner when it was taken. 

With her brand new P.I. license in hand, a marriage proposal on her mind, and Aunt Scarlet and Rosemarie as backup, nothing could possibly go wrong. 

Former high school history teacher, Addison Holmes, recently got her PI license and is now working at her friend, Kate's detective agency.  The case she has been assigned to is that of a lawyer who woke up in a bathtub full of ice missing a kidney.  Everyone agrees the guy deserved it since is isn't a very nice guy.

Addison needs wheels so she takes a tip from a fellow PI and buys a van from a "broker" named Ugly Mo.  She can't afford the full price so he hires her to see if his wife is hanging out with his competitor.  Addison's friend, Rosemarie, who is a teacher, and Addison's 90-year-old Aunt Scarlet help her out with the investigations.

In the meantime, Nick, a police officer, who Addison has been dating, has recently proposed.  Though she's in love with Nick, she is hesitant to get married because she'd caught her former fiancé fooling around on her wedding day just before the ceremony.

This is the fifth book I've read by this author and I liked it.  Though it is the fifth in the Addison Holmes series (I've read them all), it works as a stand alone. It was a light fun book to read.  It is written in first person perspective from Addison's point of view.  I liked the writing style ... it was amusing.  There were some typos and grammatical errors (I've found that will all her books) and inconsistencies (for example, Addison gets a short haircut and comments she hasn't had it styled since high school yet in the last book, she did).  As a head's up, there is swearing and adult activity.
