Set in a not-so-swanky spa outside of L.A., "Pampered to Death" is the latest installment in Laura Levine's long-running series. Publishers Weekly calls it "delightful," and Levine's completely objective husband (me) would wholeheartedly agree. She'll be signing books on Saturday afternoon from 3 to 5 at the Spitfire Grill in Santa Monica (3300 Airport Ave). Hope to see you there.
