A Nose for Mischief (Riverbend K-9s) by K. T. Lee
After Zoey Butler loses her job at Future State Energy in Colorado, USA and fails to find another job in the same sector, she contacts FBI Special Agent Alexis Thompson to see if she can help her find a new job. Alexis works in Riverbend K-9 Academy in Indiana with her dog Waffle and she finds Zoey a place there, working with the adorable canine Tasha.
But as she begins to settle down in Riverbend and enjoying her new job, something happens with her old employers – Future State. She offers to help the FBI by returning to her old company and seeing if she can find out what’s happening. This time, fellow dog handler Liam is going to accompany her.
The book has everything – drama, mystery, industrial espionage and romance. I loved the characters especially Zoey, Liam and Alexis. I also really enjoyed the dogs featured in the book and they were the reason I fancied reading it initially.
The story is well-paced, held my interest throughout and kept me turning the pages. This is the first in the series and I would definitely be interested in reading the future books.

A Nose for Mischief (Riverbend K-9s Book 1)
When materials engineer Zoey Butler lands her dream job at Future State Energy, she believes her research in renewable energy will make headlines. Unfortunately for her, she’s right. Zoey is working on her latest experiment when FBI Special Agent Alexis Thompson and her K-9 partner, Waffle, raid Future State and arrest the head of the development for fraud. Zoey helps the FBI find answers in the aftermath, but she soon finds herself jobless and unemployable. Desperate and out of options, she reaches out to Alexis, the one person who knows Zoey was duped like everyone else.
Liam Graham is an FBI special agent and instructor at Riverbend K-9 Academy. When Alexis brings in a new recruit with an unusual background, Liam pairs her up with Tasha, a dog in need of a handler to stay in their competitive program. Zoey is thrilled to put her past behind her and give the mischievous rescue dog her own second chance. However, shortly after she arrives, the FBI realizes the Future State case is far from closed. And Zoey may be the key to solving it.
Zoey offers to go back to Future State to help the FBI end things once and for all. Only this time, she’ll have Liam and Tasha for backup. But, the problems at Future State are more explosive than any of them suspect.
