Book Review of Pleasant Lake
Pleasant Lake P.D.
Alexandria Moreno, parking enforcement officer for the serene town of Pleasant Lake, has signed on with the FBI to nail a gorgeous suspected criminal, Miguel Diaz, who’s passing himself off as a legitimate businessman. Alex’s assignment is to use her feminine wiles, of which she has few, to infiltrate Diaz’s world and find some evidence for a conviction.
To complicate matters, she’s teamed up with Detective Roman Plow, who is her ex-boyfriend, though the FBI doesn’t know it. As they focus on retaliating for past wrongs, real and imagined, their smoldering love/hate relationship brews. They’re not exactly an ideal team.
With her bumbling nature, a steamer trunk full of emotional baggage, and no investigating skills, Alex spends most of her time reminding herself that the tall, dark, and handsome Miguel Diaz is not her real boyfriend and struggling to keep from falling into his bed. As she tries to dig up dirt on her undercover lover, the steamy investigation leads to a fight for her life. But who is behind the attacks?
About the Author:
Kelly Fitzpatrick is a multi-award-winning writer of romance and a Golden Heart® finalist. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, two dogs, and a Russian tortoise named Ivan.
Ribald humor and twisted romance make this a great read. Alex is the Parking Enforcement Officer for the Pleasant Town police department. Or as her ex-boyfriend, and general womanizer, calls her the meter-maid. That is until the FBI taps her to go undercover and snoop on possible mob-boss Miguel. But things may not be exactly how they seem, and Alex can’t stop tripping over herself long enough to collect evidence.
Funny, at times sad, but mostly very funny story, with a wickedly warped ribald humor. A definite good read. I give this story 4.5 out of 5 clouds.
