I.O. Tours Presents "Pleasant Lake P.D." by Kelly Fitzpatrick Book Spotlight/Review

Welcome to the final stop for the Pleasant Lake P.D. book tour presented by I.O. Book Tours!

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?

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was an easy-to-read romantic somewhat mystery, and portions of it were quite entertaining.  There was even a portion at the end of the story that had me on the edge of my seat.  Alex was the one character with whom I felt I connected to a degree, and Miguel was an interesting character as well.  But honestly, that is where a lot of the interest in the book stopped.  For some reason, I did not connect with this book as well as I thought I might.

Thankfully, there was very little profanity, and the bedroom scenes were basically non-descriptive.  For that, I was grateful.  The FBI and twin angle in the book also kept me somewhat interested.  And it is clear that the author has truly invested herself in this book. I also appreciate the fact that good triumphs over evil.  And Alex was actually right, and she is one independent woman. For whatever reason, I just was not interested.

In spite of this, if you are looking for a light read with some romance, mystery, and comedy, this may very well be the book for you.  And don't be concerned if your book says it is over 600 pages long.  It reads more like a 300-page book.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
