Acting Up: More Adventures of a Hollywood Dog Walker: LA Lights Romantic Comedy Series, Book 3 is a contemporary romance novel written by Di Jones. While this is the third book in the series, Jones gives enough background information to allow it to be read as a standalone novel. Tessa has gotten herself happily involved in the LA lifestyle. An aspiring actor, she has the perfect agent who pushes her to do both the commercials she'd rather not bother with as well as the auditions for series' pilots. Tessa walks dogs to supplement her acting income, and this new profession has helped her make human friends as well as the canine companions she walks daily. One of her favorite charges is Max, a Schnauzer pup, who belongs to Mo. Mo's asked Tessa for a big favor -- he'll be headed back to the East Coast for several weeks or so to visit an ailing relative. Tessa loves Max and has no qualms about dog sitting for Mo. When Max is abducted from a dog park, however, Tessa is sick at heart wondering how she'll ever tell Mo his baby is gone.
Di Jones's contemporary animal novel, Acting Up: More Adventures of a Hollywood Dog Walker: LA Lights Romantic Comedy Series, Book 3 is an entertaining and, at times, suspenseful story about the nightmare most dog walkers have spent a sleepless night over at some time in their careers -- losing a client's pet. Tessa is a strong and often funny main character whose commitment to her acting career has cost her a boyfriend in the past, and may be jeopardizing her current relationship with Ryan. Her life's a whirlwind of dog walking, auditions, and parties where she hopes to be seen by the right people. Her network of friends is diverse and filled with authentic and interesting characters, people from all walks of life drawn together by their love of animals. Acting Up is a fast-paced and humorous read that's filled with California sunshine, dogs and the camaraderie of good friends. It's highly recommended.
