Discover a New Adventure with Raiders of the Lost Bark
Readers looking for a new adventure will want to stop by Beaverdale Books on Friday, May 13 at 6:00 PM for a free program by a popular local writing duo. Sparkle Abbey is the pseudonym of two mystery authors (Mary Lee Woods and Anita Carter) who 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, with either an iced tea or a margarita.
In their newest book, amateur sleuth and Bow Wow Boutique owner Melinda Langston finds herself "Glamping Under the Stars” with a blackmailer who turns out to be Orange County’s hottest new gourmet pet chef, Addison Rae. Before Mel can put an end to Addison’s strong-arming, the chef is found dead. Mel is just one of many suspects who had motive to snuff out the demanding chef. Was it Redmond, the angry sous chef who detested working for Addison? What about rival chef, Pepper Maddox? The glamping chef gig was hers until Addison blackmailed her way into the job. And then there’s Asher, a charming fellow camper whose past relationship with Addison isn’t the only secret he’s guarding. Mel’s not one to tuck tail and run, even when it looks like she may be the next victim.
Raiders of the Lost Bark is the eighth book in the series. Additional titles include, Desperate Housedogs, Fifty Shades of Grey Hound, and Downton Tabby. They will be happy to sign copies of their books.
