In posh Laguna Beach, murder has gone to the dogs. "You'll
be howling with laughter!" Kathy Bacus, author of Calamity
Jayne. When Caro Lamont, former psychologist turned pet
therapist makes a house call to help Kevin Blackstone with
his two misbehaving German Shepherd dogs, she expects
frantic dogs, she expects a frantic dog owner, she even
expects frantic neighbors. What she doesn't expect is that
two hours later the police will find Kevin dead, his dogs
impounded; and that as the last person to see Kevin alive
(well, except for the killer) she is suddenly a person of
interest, at least according to Homicide Detective Judd
Malone. Detective Judd Malone scanned my living room, his
baby blues taking in my overstuffed couch, easy chairs and
crowded bookshelves. My cats, Thelma and Louise, perched in
the window sill, replete with tuna. Each opened an eye and
then, unimpressed, went back to their beauty sleep.
Dogbert climbed from his doggie bed, trotted over for a
sniff, but then also dismissed Malone and went back to his
nap. "Can I get you something to drink?" I asked. Some
hospitality is automatic. Even when you have an unannounced
guest. Even a guest who might arrest you. He shook his head
and continued his scan. "Well, then. What can I help you
with, Detective?" "I understand you visited Kevin
Blackstone today?" "Yes, I did. I'm the behavioral
counselor for his German shepherds. What about Kevin?" I
had a really bad feeling about this. Malone arched a brow.
"Kevin Blackstone is dead." Sparkle Abbey is the pseudonym
of two mystery authors (Mary Lee Woods and Anita Carter).
They are friends and neighbors as well as co-writers of the
Pampered Pets Mystery Series. The pen name was created by
combining the names of their rescue pets - Sparkle (Mary
Lee's cat) and Abbey (Anita's dog). They reside in central
Iowa, but if they could write anywhere, you would find them
on the beach with their laptops and depending on the time of
day either an iced tea or a margarita.)
