Paw and Order by Diane Kelly is the second book in the “Paw Enforcement” mystery series. Publisher: St. Martin’s Press, December 2014
Police officer Megan Luz and her loyal K-9 partner Brigit are back on the beat—and under the gun—when the local rodeo show goes to the dogs. . .
OUT OF THE DOGHOUSE
After capturing the notorious Fort Worth “Tunabomber,” Megan and Brigit are practically celebrities. Which is why the police chief lassoed them into doing rodeo duty —mostly as a public relations stunt for the department. Megan’s not a fan of calf roping, bull riding, or goat milking contests. But when a thief appears to be working the circuit, her trusty K-9 partner starts sniffing for clues. . .
INTO THE FIRE HYDRANT
The culprit is “Robin Hood,” a young Texas golddigger who steals from the rich to give to the poor—namely, herself. With Brigit hot on the trail, Megan has to juggle her on-again off-again reputation in the FWPD with her on-again off-again relationship with sexy bomb-squader Seth Rutledge. This time, Megan is determined to rope in her suspect and her man…before chaos, and/or her trusted furry partner, is unleashed.
Megan, who has higher aspiration within the police department, is on point with her K9 partner, Brigit, as they track a thief on the rodeo grounds. I like the approach the author takes in the telling of this drama, ala Columbo. . .we know who is behind the theft, it’s following Megan as she put all the pieces together to capture her prey that kept me reading on. I also enjoyed how Megan’s and Seth’s personal relationship played out in this book as it was very entertaining. This is a fun read and I love Megan’s internal dialogue and Brigit’s who has an ulterior motive as to the shenanigans she displays at the expense of Megan’s closet. I’m looking forward to the next book in this terrific series.
