Happy Veterans Day from Laguna Beach

by Diana Knight from Sparkle Abbey's Pampered Pets Mystery Series

Happy Veterans Day and to every single veteran out there, "Thank-you for your service."

You might remember me, I was in a bunch films in the sixties. I've retired from the movie business, but I'm still very busy working on raising awareness about animals rescue. I'm so excited to be taking part in an event right here in Laguna Beach that benefits an organization near and dear to my heart called, Warriors for the Paws. The group helps to provide therapy dogs for veterans who suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome. You might have heard it referred to as PTSD, The group does a great job, and hopes to soon be able to provide even more therapy dogs.

Several of us had an idea to do a fundraiser that involved stars and their pets and we're calling it Barking with the Stars. I've asked my friend, Caro, who's a people therapist turned pet therapist, to help with the event because something like this can evolve into high-strung yipping and yapping. And believe me, I'm not just talking about the dogs.

Plans for the event were going great. We'd had quite a few well-known celebrities agree to be a part of Barking with the Stars. But now, it seems Caro's ex-husband has been causing some problems. He's been spreading rumors that Caro is unreliable and unstable. What a piece of work the man is!

We eventually get things back on track, but I have to tell you that before that happens things go badly awry. Soon we have dead celebrity, an event that's falling apart, and more suspects than you can shake a stick at. And even if her sleuthing puts Caro in the doghouse with Detective Judd Malone, you know she is going work to dig up the truth before the killer gets away.

Find out more about our Barking with the Stars event when the book comes out on November 17th. It's already available for pre-order. And if you want to make sure you don't miss any news, stop by and sign up for Sparkle Abbey's newsletter.
