Officer Luz is lucky she still has a job after tasering a male colleague where it counts the most. Sure, he had it coming - which is why the police chief is giving Megan a second chance. The catch? Her new partner can't carry a gun, can't drive a cruiser, and can't recite the Miranda Rights. Because her new partner is a big furry police dog. So that's what the chief meant when he called Megan's partner a real bitch...With Brigit out on the beat, Megan is writing up enough tickets to wallpaper the whole station. But when a bomb goes off at the mall's food court, it's up to Megan and Brigit to start digging - and sniffing - for clues. With the help of dead-sexy bomb-squad expert Seth Rutledge and his own canine partner named Blast, Megan finds herself in a desperate race to collar a killer. Will justice be served - or will she end up in the doghouse?

Kelly's writing is smart and laugh-out-loud funny. (Kristan Higgins, New York Times best-selling author)
No, Because the protagonist keeps mentioning how smart she is. Arrogance. Police procedures are not followed by the cops. Duh. Author has them blundering. Also, Police dog procedures are not followed. Author doesn't have good knowledge of police dog handling. Author has this dog out of control all the time. For example: eating up crime scene morsels. Police dogs don't gobble up stuff at a crime scene. Example of blunder: Cop sits down at her beat in a food court to eat lunch and is unaware of teens behind her giving her the finger and making faces which is caught on security tape. A cop would never sit down EVER with back to activity and crowd. They sit facing the crowd. In their nature. Then she leaves her weapon and dog at home at final scene to get her in trouble. This would never happen in real life. Why take the dog to church, and leave it at home along with your weapons when you are going to a former crime scene and your regular beat? duh.....
Least: Heroine takes police dog to church and the dog is out of control in many areas. Author has things happen to try and be funny. Not funny.
Just out of pace because the book is out of pace.
Never I hope.
My head is spinning at the lack of correct portrayal of police dogs and police.
yes yes yes........funny and well written. can't wait for more from this series
all of it but especially when brigit (the dog) says "fish yum yum"
both main characters
laugh till your side splits
Thrilling, Funny, Interesting
I have to say when Brigit was speaking about how she felt about the second date when she catches them. I laugh so hard to see it from the officer and the dogs point of view was great. I also like how they both weren't afraid to admit when they were afraid when the bomb went off.
This was my first but I will be looking forward to the next one to see how they grow as partners.
Yes I did listen to it on setting and my family could stop staring at me laughing to myself.
This is a great first book to a new series.
How can you not like a book which starts with the female cop tasering her vile sexist partner in the balls! The characters are funny and interesting, although not always believable. I read for character and place more than the mystery, and the fact that some of the characters were a little extreme didn't bother me as it was done in the interest of comedy and doesn't set out to be totally realistic--otherwise we wouldn't be getting occasional chapters from the point of view of the dog!
Loved the story line but the narrator got way carried away with the sounds etc. Sometimes I felt like I was 10 listening. A good start to a series but the narrating needs to improve to take it more seriously.
Fun fast-paced story with lots of adventure and intrigue.
Versatile, Mellow, Interesting
We laughed out loud several times while listening to the book on a long road-trip!
Coleen did a great job of reading, but she made several pronunciation mistakes that really bothered me, especially the song that was repeated several times in the book - she read "whoopee Tee Yee Yay, get along little doggies" instead of "whoopee tie yie yay". lots of other mispronunciations that should have been caught and corrected before final distribution.
I couldn't help thinking this story was the female version of Turner & Hooch. However as the book progressed I realized the movie may have sparked an idea, but the author penned an original story. The narrator was excellent for this story. I'll be sure to give the next book in the series a try.
Yes, it is comical and you learn a lot about the partnership between cop and dog, I'm definitively gonna listen again because I know I missed a few spots.when the dog saved a food court of people at a mall when he was new to the cop and there's so many I can't list them all.
When the cop and dog just got teamed up together and went shopping for food and the dog wanted certain snacks and the. Cop thinks 9.00. Is to much when she is emptying at the register the dog stands up and puts the treats on counter and the bag has tooth holes in it so the dog got his biscuits.
Yes I couldn't stop it was funny.
Try this book it's awesome.

If you are looking for a deep story, this is not the book for you. However if looking for light hearted entertainment you might want to pick it up. Listened
On a long road trip. Good for a few laughs.
