Publisher's Summary

Pru Marlowe isn't your ordinary animal psychic. A tough girl on the run from her own gift, Pru left the big city to return to her picturesque Berkshires hometown looking for a little peace. Too bad that her training as an animal behaviorist got her mixed up with Lily, a rescue dog, and Charles, the dog’s guardian. Now Charles is dead, and Lily appears to be headed for the same end, for after all, Lily is a pit bull, a fighting-ring dropout. And Lily is far too traumatized to give Pru a clear picture of what she has witnessed. But Pru knows something about bad girls trying to clean up, and, with a sense of justice strong enough to overcome her dislike of human society, she takes the case.
Listening to the animals, Pru picks up clues and learns there are secrets in the pretty little town that make murder look simple. Unable to tell anyone about her psychic abilities, uncertain at times about her own sanity, Pru comes to realize that if she clears Lily, she’ll likely become the prime suspect—or the next victim. While the only creature she can totally trust is her crotchety tabby cat, Wallis, Pru must uncover the real killer—and find a way to live with her gift—before the real beasts in the town savage her and those she has come to love.

Entertaining, though not cozy, mystery

Any additional comments?

I liked Dogs Don't Lie. The narrator did a great job of bringing the characters to life for me. That said, I do prefer a more cozy style mystery, and neither Pru nor her cat are really the cozy sort. Still it held my interest. I'm not sure I 100% bought into the killer and motive presented at the end, but I plan to try the next in the series anyway.

A good listen

If you could sum up Dogs Don’t Lie in three words, what would they be?

I was a little annoyed at the main character's lack of insight, after all she is a dog behaviorist

What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

easy voice to listen to, she separated the character's well
