I've followed this novel almost since the beginning when I happened to judge Chapter One for a RWA chapter contest. I gave the entry a near perfect score, but it didn't final in the contest (presumably because one or both of the other judges didn't see its promise). However, a couple of months later, a partial did final in the Golden Heart Contest, and subsequently, Medallion Press picked it up for publication.
Pleasant Lake P.D.
By Kelly Fitzpatrick
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?
