Betty Foxx Has Moves!

Betty Foxx from Sparkle Abbey's Pampered Pets series has got moves and she's not afraid to use them.

Hi, there, Betty Foxx here. I work at Melinda’s Langston’s Bow Wow Boutique. The girl needs me something bad because she doesn’t always think about maximizing her sales. I’ve got retail experience. I also help her and Detective Hottie solve murders, but that’s another story. Now, I’ve been around the block a time or two and not much surprises me, but when Cookie (that’s my nickname for Melinda) suggested I call her sneaky cousin, Caro, the pet shrink, you coulda knocked me over with a feather. Those two haven’t been speaking since a big feud started with them fighting over a brooch left to them by their granny. Cookie thinks I’m havin’ dog trouble, cuz I got this Saint Bernard, but I’m fine. Raider and I are just getting used to each other. Still Cookie must really be worried to suggest I call her archenemy cousin.

So I agreed to call the pet shrink and she gave me some pretty good tips. But, here’s the crazy thing. Caro was taking care of this cat and then the owner (a rich Internet dude) disappeared and his partner was found dead. Yowza! I guess I’m gonna have to help her now too. There’s lots of suspicious stuff going on, but I am plenty up to it. I took these self-defense classes and my hands are dangerous weapons. Nobody better mess with me. I’ve got moves! Now if I can just get Caro and that TV reporter, MacAvoy, to spill what they know.

Stay tuned because things are about to get excitin’ around here!

Anyone for tea and crumpets...and murder? Laguna Beach’s favorite pet therapist, Caro Lamont is back in Downton Tabby, book seven in The Pampered Pets Mysteries. Downton Tabby is now available for pre-order at Amazon and to celebrate Sparkle Abbey is giving away this Andrew Cardew feline-themed teapot and a canister of exclusive Downton Abbey tea. All you need to do to enter the drawing is pre-order the book and then email Sparkle Abbey with "Downton Tabby Pre-Order" in the subject line. The drawing will be held on June 6th, the book's release date.

Sparkle Abbey is the pseudonym of mystery authors Mary Lee Woods and Anita Carter. They've chosen to use Sparkle Abbey as their pen name on this series because they liked the idea of combining the names of their two rescue pets – Sparkle (ML’s cat) and Abbey (Anita’s dog). The authors co-write the bestselling Pampered Pets Mystery Series which focuses on the wacky world of precious pedigrees, pampered pooches, and secrets in posh Laguna Beach, California.
