About this ebook

When a case of he-said/she-said turns criminal, it’s up to Megan Luz and her devoted K-9 to dig for the truth. . .

When relationships go south, some people just can’t—or won’t—let go. When Fort Worth Police Officer Megan Luz and her pawed partner Brigit investigate a series of stalking incidents involving a couple who recently broke up, their detective powers are put to the test. Is this a case of a controlling creep who refuses to accept rejection—or one about a woman scorned whose fury has been unleashed?

As hostilities escalate between the former lovers, the situation goes from romantically dysfunctional to downright dangerous. He insists his former flame has become a crazy ex-girlfriend intent on vengeance. She alleges that he is a master of manipulation and lays blame entirely at his feet. Who’s the culprit and who’s the victim? Can Megan and Brigit sniff out the truth. . .before somebody ends up dead?

Enforcing the Paw is part of Diane Kelly's fun and smart Paw Enforcement series.

This a fun addition to the Paw Enforcement series. In it, Megan, along with her K9 partner Bridget, are called to investigate vandalism between two former lovers. Each accuses the other and before long there are multiple incidents with Megan no closer to knowing which one of them is telling the truth. As usual, Bridget is the smartest creature investigating, unfortunately, the humans in her world don't understand dog... Fans of the genre will love this book. It's a light hearted romp with enough mystery to keep it interesting, but all the heart you'd expect in a K9 novel. The author is on my must read authors' list and should probably be on yours as well.

Enforcing the Paw by Diane Kelly is the sixth A Paw Enforcement Novel. Officer Megan Luz and her canine partner, Sergeant Brigit of the Fort Worth Police Department are on the night shift when they respond to a call of a broken window. Adriana Valdez claims her ex-boyfriend, Ryan is responsible for the vandalism and that this is not the first incident. Megan goes to Ryan’s apartment where she finds evidence that implicates him in the crime. Ryan, though, claims that Adriana has been harassing him, and she is framing him for the crime. Ryan has an order of protection against Adriana. This is just the beginning of a he said/she said case that is going to test Megan’s detective skills. Is the guilty party the creepy Ryan or the drab, neat freak Adriana? Megan has another case that is equally perplexing. A man in hospital scrubs, scrub cap, and mask is stealing grape Tootsie pops from convenience stores near two hospitals. The man knows the area well and manages to escape each time Brigit and Megan track him. Why would an adult steal lollipops? When Megan is not working, she is spending time with her boyfriend, Seth and his dog, Blast. Megan has noticed that Seth is slowly leaving things at her place (toiletries and clothes). Megan needs to decide if she is ready to escalate their relationship? Life is never dull for Megan and Brigit. See how things turn out in Enforcing the Paw. Enforcing the Paw is a delight to read. I found it to be well-written, engaging, and moved along at a fast clip. The book is written in the first person. The chapters alternate between Megan’s, Brigit’s and The Devoted One’s (the person responsible for the attacks on Ryan and Adriana) point-of-view. Brigit’s chapters are humorous and will have readers chuckling. They provide a light element that injects whimsy into the story. Enforcing the Paw may be the sixth book in the series, but it can be read alone (easily). All the necessary facts are provided on Megan and Brigit along with some key details from the previous novels. My rating for Enforcing the Paw is 5 out of 5 stars. The identity of The Devoted One is not difficult to figure out, but that did not stop my enjoyment of the story. I was riveted from beginning to end (and got a little miffed when I was interrupted). I do want to mention there is some mild swearing in the book. I wish it was not included, but it does go with the characters. Enforcing the Paw has a great ending. I have read all the books in A Paw Enforcement series, and Enforcing the Paw is my favorite. Now I must wait (impatiently) for the next book to be released.
