Hey, everyone! Melinda Langston here, checking in to share all the exciting happenings here in Laguna Beach. With the tourist season winding down, the kids preparing to return to school, and only 136 days until Christmas (yikes!), we locals are preparing for the upcoming Mobster Film Festival. The festival is a fundraiser for Angels with Paws, a fabulous local non-profit organization for seizure response dogs.
As an animal lover and supporter of other local animal shelters, I was asked to head up the scholarship fundraising. Raising money for seizure sufferers to afford their own response dog, trained to retrieve needed items, turn off lights, or even carry needed medication. . . .how could I say no?
Of course, it’s never that easy, is it? A local businessman, who had promised a sizable donation for the event, is found dead before handing off his check. And even though I'm not a suspect, someone I care about is. You can read all about it my crazy adventure next month in The Dogfather, book 10 in the Pampered Pets Mystery series.
If you’d like to learn more about seizure response dogs or how you can support the cause, check out Paws with a Cause.

Who knew the world of designer purses could be such a dog-eat-dog business?
When a local, designer handbags store owner is found dead, the police first believe it’s an unfortunate accident. But the evidence doesn’t lie. Before you can say "wiseguy," Bow Wow Boutique owner, Melinda Langston’s, former fiancé and undercover FBI agent, Grey Donovan, is the prime suspect.
Now the two are working side-by-side to prove Grey's innocence— nothing personal, just business. Or is it? Suspects are piling up, family secrets are exposed, and no one is who they appear to be, including Mel’s newest employee. Time’s running out. Mel better sniff out the killer before she and Grey end up sleeping with the fishes.available 9/21/18
