HOUND ON THE SOUND (LEGAL BEAGLE MINI-MYSTERY)
Pepper Sullivan is dying to jettison her job at the big city law firm, so when she finds a house on the water at an amazing price, she grabs it . . . only to discover that most of the folks in her old hometown believe the place is haunted.
Once back in Misty-on-the-Sound, Pepper has to contend with her old boyfriend the sheriff, her nosy mother, and the town’s shady lawyer. All this while starting her own law practice and trying to find time for her original passion—singing.
With the help of her trusty legal beagle, Mr. Woogles, can Pepper figure out what’s going on before the house turns on her?
SCALES OF JUSTICE (LEGAL BEAGLE #1)
Pepper Sullivan is in trouble. She just moved back to her beachside hometown of Misty-on-the-Sound from New York City to open her own law office. Her real passion is singing, but practicing law is her bread and butter. Now the only other attorney in Misty (and the guy everybody knows she hates) has fallen off a balcony and died—or was he pushed?
Pepper digs deep to solve the mystery with the help of her legal beagle Mr. Woogles, her former boyfriend who’s now the sheriff, and her interfering mom. Along the way, she deals with the challenge of an old house, wacky clients, and the hot Italian doctor who buys the place next door.
With a song in her heart and dogged determination, will Pepper be able to solve the case and absolve the innocent?
TREBLE WITH THE LAW (LEGAL BEAGLE #2)
Pepper Sullivan just solved the first murder that quiet Misty-on-the-Sound has seen in decades with the help of her trusty canine companion, Mr. Woogles. Everything should calm down now, so she can get back to building her law practice and spending her free time belting out Broadway songs.
But when the town’s richest and most famous son, Everett Pursley the Third, comes back to lead the “Lights on the Sound” parade of boats on Labor Day weekend, tragedy strikes again. The millionaire’s wife is found drowned. Was it an accident?
As usual, Pepper’s one-time boyfriend Sheriff Logan Bateman needs her help to figure out what happened--but he doesn’t want it. When her gorgeous next-door neighbor, Dr. Angelo D’Amore, provides an unexpected clue, Logan seems a mite jealous. And Pepper can’t get far enough away from the pesky new guy in town, Josh Devlin. Nevertheless, the attributes of all three potential “suitors” are gleefully dissected by Pepper’s nosy and noisy mother.
In the end, Pepper must harness all her skills as a sleuth to uncover the culprit and unravel the mystery of the lady who was launched.
LAWYER OF NOTE (LEGAL BEAGLE #3)
Misty-on-the-Sound is celebrating the grand reopening of the newly-refurbished Crystal Hall with a gala concert by the famous singing pair Zeke and Zinnia. Just as the couple is taking their second curtain call, catastrophe strikes. Is it an accident… or murder?
Pepper Sullivan, attorney and cabaret singer, is pulled into the investigation by her on-again-off-again beau Sheriff Logan. He resists her help but finds that she provides invaluable clues. Along the way, she gets assistance from her trusty legal beagle Mr. Woogles, her pushy mom, and the merry band of Misty Meddlers who spread town gossip via their secret online chat group.
The usual gang supports Pepper in her quest to get at the truth… from her florist pals Bryce and Sergio and her mom’s old friend Liz to her deliciously attractive neighbor, Dr. D’Amore. Will Pepper finally fulfill her lifelong dream of singing at Crystal Hall—or will the scent of murder linger so long that her concert gets canceled? If she dares to sing, will she be the next vocal victim?
