Against the Paw

A Paw Enforcement Novel, #4

I must confess that I’m a sucker for any novel with a cute dog on the cover so I absolutely love Diane Kelly's Paw Enforcement series. Against the Paw is book #4 and this time Megan Luz and her K-9 partner Brigit are working cases around various types of home invasion, from burglaries to a Peeping Tom. I wish there had been more progress with Megan’s love life but at least their relationship is consistently taking it slow. There is a wide cast of supporting characters and it was great to see them again on the pages.

I'm fond of the way that author writes first person in alternating chapter, from the perspective of the female cop, the KP dog and the villain of the novel. I don’t usually like being in the mind of the “villain” but Diane always does any amazing job of telling the villain’s story where they don’t see themselves as the bad person.

I'm thrilled that this series is going well because I want more books to read from this author. It's comforting to know that you can pick up one of her books and get exactly what you want… a great read.
