"Diane Wing throws some new and interesting characters into the storyline of A Winter's Tail, and they fit in seamlessly with the current cast of old friends. I love how the animals, Chrissy, Ace along with Mickey and others, don't just play second fiddle to the human characters. Each canine has their own identity and a necessary part of the plot. Kudos to Mrs. Wing for another great cozy afternoon read!" -Antoinette Brickhaus, Leonardtown, MD

"This installment of the Chrissy the Shih Tzu cozy mysteries finds Chrissy's pet parent, Autumn, preparing for her wedding to Ray Reed, a local police lieutenant. Autumn's friend and cousin, Bea, is worried that Autumn and Ray's nuptials are cursed because of several setbacks to Autumn's plans. Meanwhile, Chrissy discovers a body in a snow pile and Ray is assigned to investigate the victim's death. This is the best book of the series so far! I couldn't figure out who was sabotaging Autumn and Ray's wedding until the final reveal. A fun, cute, and enjoyable read. -Terri Chalmers, Sicklerville, NJ
