Paws with a Cause

by Mel Langston from Sparkle Abbey's Pampered Pets Mystery series

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 Dogfatherbook 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.

One last item, as part of the Killer Characters summer giveaway, Sparkle Abbey is offering your book choice from the Pampered Pets Mystery series. To enter, please tell the authors which book you’d like if you win, along with your name and email address in the comment section below. Comments close at midnight your time on Sunday, August 12th.


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 fiancĂ© 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
