Accomplished….Schnur’s meditations on women’s friendships makes this a humorous but not trivial read.” Publishers Weekly

Entertaining…The main character is lovably flawed, and so is almost everyone orbiting in her up-and-down universe, which may remind us of a lot of people we know, including ourselves.”

Here are just some of the reviews for The Dog Walker:

Let’s declare a new genre – not Chick Lit but Wit Lit, which is Chick Lit that actually works. This summer’s candidate is “The Dog Walker,” which delivers the requisite workplace dish, social skewering, name-brand knowingness and sexy sex, but with the attitudinal smarts, deft writing and perfect comic timing woefully lacking in such Chick hits as “TheDevil Wears Prada,” “The Nanny Diaries” and “Bergdorf Blondes.

The New York Daily News

“A warmhearted, big-city fairy tale about the things that matter most: dogs, friends, music and falling in love.”

Jennifer Weiner
author of The Next Big Thing and Good in Bed

“Entertaining from a near-breathtaking lead-in, with comedic turns and close calls and surprises along the way…What makes you keep turning the pages is Nina’s sardonic wit and the author’s lively imagination and sense of timing.”

East Hampton Star

“A delightful romantic comedy. An Us Must.”

Us Magazine

“A clever, fresh slant on infatuation and love…made even better by lots and lots of dogs.

Lauren Weisberger,
author of The Devil Wears Prada

“Characters come alive on the page…a hilariously touching debut novel that is impossible to put down…A must read!”

“An enjoyable comedy-of-errors yarn, filled with mistaken identities, eccentric characters and lots and lots of dogs.”


“A laugh-out-loud romp… It’s 309 pages of pure glee, made all the more fabulous by the presence of extremely excellent dogs. The Dog Walker is one of my favorite books since Bridget.”

The Dallas Morning News

“Imagine Julia Roberts in the movie walking eleven dogs on leashes (it could happen) and learn all about her love life. The book is a trip; it’s breezy, it’s wacky.

Elmore Leonard,
author of Raylan and Get Shorty

“It’s a great pleasure to meet a dog-walking heroine who loves to snoop…Sweet.”

The New York Post

“The Dog Walker will delight and entertain both dog lovers and romance readers…A page-turner which moves toward a satisfying conclusion.”

Library Journal

“What a delightful, witty, warm, wise, funny and stylish debut! Leslie Schnur’s The Dog Walker is a winner.”

Harlan Coben,
author of Stay Close
and Shelter

“An original romantic comedy…funny and entertaining, fast-paced and down to earth …combining classic comedy with modern-day situations, it delves below the surface to reveal hidden truths about true romance.”

Romantic Times

“A sparkling tale…guaranteed to keep the reader enthralled….A story filled with the subtle nuances of human relationships, rich and complex in their gravity (with) enough self-deprecating humor to make it an absolute and entertaining treat.”

“The Dog Walker …is dreamy. ”

Vanity Fair

“A delightful, unexpected, feel good tale, definitely not just for dog lovers.”

 “A hilariously touching debut novel that is impossible to put down.”

Laugh-out-loud funny, poignant and brilliantly observed. Schnur is a true original. Someday readers will say, ‘It’s good, but it’s no Schnur!'”

Al Franken,
U.S. Senator and author of Lies and the Lying Liars who Tell Them
