Review of Pleasant Lake P.D. by Kelly Fitzpatrick

Welcome to my Review of Pleasant Lake P.D. by Kelly Fitzpatrick.

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?

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.


My Review:

I got a real kick out of Alexandria Moreno she want to be so much more than a meter maid (AKA Parking Enforcement )  I love the way every time someone gets on her bad side she asks them what car they drive!  
Then her dreams come true when FBI Agent Kilgore shows up and needs her undercover, seems the suspected bad guy has the hots for the meter maid.  Let me just say supposed bad guy Miguel Diaz is HOT and he can cook too ladies!  One big problem for Alex is her annoying ex-boyfriend Roman Plow, is assigned as her new partner.  Let the love triangle begin.

I really loved that this love triangle was very realistic; I could see any woman in the situations that Alex finds herself in.  Even a horrid mother of the new boyfriend is part of the situation and let me tell you Miguel’s mother is a piece of work.

Kelly Fitzpatrick has written a great romantic comedy with a crime to solve thrown in.  Kelly is very gifted when it comes to writing the comedic banter that would truly happen in real life and I often caught myself smiling while I read. 

 I really enjoyed reading this novel and I have already recommended it to several friends. You should check it out too.
