Attorney at Paw by Diane Wing-Beck Valley Tour-Review/Giveaway

About the book 
Autumn Clarke survived the car crash that killed her parents. To help her cope with PTSD, she adopts Chrissy, a Shih Tzu with a remarkable secret. Chrissy is also the only witness to the mysterious death of her pet parent. Autumn vows to find the truth behind his death with the help of Chrissy, the neighbors and an attractive detective. Can Autumn unravel the clues while trying to heal Chrissy's trauma and overcome her own devastating emotional wounds in the midst of a dangerous murder investigation? 

And others are saying 
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

And I thought
I was pleasantly surprised.  I enjoyed Attorney at Paw  more than I expected I would.  

Based on the cover I thought I would be reading a cute little story with a little mystery thrown in. 

I got way more.  Attorney at Paw was very well written.  A great story/plot.  And some great characters.  And with all that there is a touch on PTSD and on animal rescue and how therapy dogs can be used.   And there is a bit of romance too. 

We get a mystery in who did in Chrissy's (the dog) original owner. 
Was it his sister who sent Chrissy to a shelter?  And received the inheritance?   Or was it his business partner?  Then again it could have been the chick that had the hots for him.  Or maybe even his girlfriend.  There are no shortage of suspects. 

There are no shortage of suspects and no shortage of  likeable characters making this one a great read and start to a great new series.  

I give Chrissy 5 paws.  I can't wait to read more. 

I received a complimentary copy. 
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
