Review by The Book Commentary

Attorney at Paw: A Chrissy the Shih Tzu Cozy Mystery by Diane Wing is a fascinating read; in turn, hilarious and heartwarming. At the time that Autumn Clarke is grieving the loss of her parents, killed in a car crash, she meets Chrissy, a Shih Tzu with extraordinary gifts. Chrissy has also experienced loss, being the sole witness to the murder of her pet parents. Autumn adopts Chrissy and together they set out to unravel clues in a murder with the help of other characters they meet along the way. This is a cozy mystery at its best, filled with twisting moments and featuring characters — both human and animal — that readers are going to root for. Will they be able to solve the murder and heal?

This tale is immersive from the get-go as readers are introduced to the themes of death and murder. The author rouses the curiosity of readers from the opening pages with the obituary announcements and a murder scene. The prose is crisp and delectable and one has the impression that this author understands the economy of words. Yes, she wastes no precious word, creating relentless drama in the narrative as she explores the relationship between Autumn and Chrissy the Shih Tzu in the midst of grief and a murder investigation. The detective is another character that arrests the attention of readers. Diane Wing’s use of anthropomorphism enriches characterization, making Chrissy a character that readers can relate to; she reads human emotions with accuracy and succeeds in building a strong connection with Autumn. Fans will adore the beautifully crafted dialogues, the strong plot points, and the realism infused into the writing. This is a mesmerizing tale from the first page, emotionally rich, and a highly sophisticated cozy mystery that will surely keep you engaged until the last captivating page.

"Chrissy the Shih Tzu may be the cutest sleuth on the job, but don't let that button nose fool you—it's perfectly able to sniff out a killer with a little help from her human friends. Great start to a fun new series!"
--Sheila Webster Boneham, Author of the award-winning Animals in Focus Mysteries

"Diane Wing does an excellent job of showing readers just how animals can communicate with us through images and actions when we are tuned into their frequency. Through the relationship between Autumn and Chrissy, Wing also shows the importance of therapy animals and how much they can help those who need them. Add in a sweet romance to the intrigue of the mystery and you've got a book that you won't want to put down."
--Melissa Alvarez, Intuitive, animal communicator and author of Animal Frequency and Llewellyn's Little Book of Spirit Animals

"Diane Wing has created a wonderfully endearing little character in Chrissy the Shih Tzu. It really shines through that the author is an animal and dog lover. I can see these books quickly becoming a cherished addition to the cozy mystery genre."
--J. New, author of The Yellow Cottage Vintage Mysteries
