Paw and Order by Diane Kelly

Megan is a K-9 officer and Brigit is her dog.  They're celebrities because of the last case they worked on, so the chief sends her to the local fair for more promotion of the police department and its officers.  Megan isn't enthused about the job but gets that way not long after she enters the fairgrounds.

St. Martin's Press and Net Galley gave me the opportunity to read this book (thank you).  It will be published December 30th, so take your Christmas money down and get a copy.  This is the second in the series, so pick up the first one while you wait.

Megan had a relationship with Seth from the bomb squad.  Seth has some problems and he backed off.  Now he wants to get together again but he doesn't want to talk about his family and those problems.  Megan says talk or forget it.  He's willing to try.

In the meantime, someone is stealing money from folks at the fair.  They're robbing them in the restrooms.  Even with descriptions from the victims, she's having trouble finding them.  While she's working on solving that problem, she's got a guy flirting with her there.  Like she needed more trouble.

I like stories that have an animal in them and Brigit is a delightful character.  Megan is her own person and she's not secure in the romance field.  I wanted to shove her in the right direction but she'll have to find it on her own.  That's how life is too, right?

This is a cozy mystery set amongst the farm animals and rodeo.  I could almost smell the cotton candy and corn dogs.  I enjoyed this read.  Why don't you taste it?
