Paw EnforcementPaw Enforcement by Diane Kelly is the first book in the “Paw Enforcement” mystery series. Publisher: Kensington, June 2014

Paw Enforcement introduces police officer Megan Luz and her loyal K-9 partner Brigit — two Fort Worth cops who are worth their weight in kibble.

Officer Luz is lucky she still has a job after tasering a male colleague where it counts the most. Sure, he had it coming—which is why the police chief is giving Megan a second chance. The catch? Her new partner can’t carry a gun, can’t drive a cruiser, and can’t recite the Miranda Rights. Because her new partner is a big furry police dog. So that’s what the chief meant when he called Megan’s partner a real b*tch…

With Brigit out on the beat, Megan is writing up enough tickets to wallpaper the whole station. But when a bomb goes off at the mall’s food court, it’s up to Megan and Brigit to start digging—and sniffing—for clues. With the help of dead-sexy bomb-squad expert Seth Rutledge and his own canine partner named Blast, Megan finds herself in a desperate race to collar a killer. Will justice be served—or will she end up in the doghouse?

Paired with one another, we follow the story of police officer Megan and her new canine partner Sgt. Brigit. I love the format of this book with its sub-heading alerting me as to who is doing the talking. This very enjoyable drama had a comfortable tone, chapters that were easy to follow and some laugh-out-loud moments that was hard to put down as I had to know what was going to happen next. The author did a great job in presenting clues as to who was behind the deadly actions facing Officer Megan with some surprising twists that kept me glued to the pages. Megan is a gutsy heroine who knows what she wants and I’m looking forward to seeing her reach her goal with hopefully more books in this wonderfully engaging and entertaining debut series.
