Summary

An animal communicator, a dead body, and furry witnesses with a story to tell...

I’m Dr. Kallie Collins, a veterinarian who can communicate with animals. No, it’s not as crazy as it sounds. Yes, it has landed me smack dab in the middle of a murder investigation.

It all starts with a bone.

A dog digs up the bone. A detective wants the bone. The dog wants to keep the bone. That’s where I come in. Instead of tranquilizing the dog as the skeptical detective suggests, I use an animal-communication technique, and voila! Tail wagging, the dog drops the bone, then leads me to the location of a complete human skeleton. Sheesh!

Now, I’m up to my ears in four-legged witnesses and trying to figure out who the killer is before it’s too late and another person disappears.

I’m just hoping it won’t be me.

A mystery and pets what more could you want

I enjoyed this book but it wasn't quite what I was expecting. Reading the blurb (Kallie uses an animal-communication technique)
I was expecting more a doctor Doolittle or reading the pets body language type of story instead the animals communicate by sending her visions. This isn't anything supernatural it's just something she can do after a training course and everybody accepts it. It may seem weird but it actually works and plays out nicely in the story. The mystery was interesting and the author is obviously a big mystery fan because a lot of famous characters (that I know well, being a fan myself) were mentioned and brought a smile to my face, especially when Kallie kept wondering what Kinsey Millhone would do. The characters are fun and like able, I really liked the two different personalities of the best friends. It's a fun book and I will be looking out for book two.
Kallie as the vet on call gets sent out to help the police, when a dog is found guarding human bones. Using her special skills she gets the gone back and is able to lead the police to the rest of the body using this dogs help. By doing this she becomes the go to girl for a certain detective but it also puts her in the spot light of a killer. With threats being received, families disappearing, business that are not what they appear and a cat and dog to worry about Kallie has no option but to continue helping the police with there investigation, no matter how many times she is told to stay out of it or by doing so she put herself and her friends in danger. Well Kinsey wouldn't back down.
I liked the narrator and thought she did a good job bringing the characters to life.

Even better as audio!

veterinarian, law-enforcement, family-dynamics, friendship, murder-investigation, cozy-mystery, situational-humor, verbal-humor*****

Veterinarian Kallie's skills might be less obvious than Dr Doolittle, and she's lots younger than Dr Herriot, but she has even more in common with Kinsey Milhone! She claims that her ability to interact with animals is a thing that can be learned, but the sheriff's department and the paparazzi aren't so sure. The detective is new to the area and their first encounter is over a dog who doesn't want to give up the (human) bone but leads them into the cow pasture complete with cow pats. When Kellie isn't sleuthing, she's groaning over her mother's matchmaking schemes, so it's a good thing she's got a couple of good friends! Absolutely loved this book!
I requested and received a free ebook copy from Robynn Sheahan of Independent Book Publishers Association via NetGalley. Thank you!
*****Guess I only THOUGHT I loved it because when I won an audio copy I found out how much BETTER it was when performed by Naomi Rose-Mock! She really brought more life and personality to each of the characters!

Dogs Don't Lie is an entertaining cozy mystery with engaging characters and an interesting plot. The characters are engaging and the mystery is well written. The aspect of the lead character talking to animals is realistic and works in this setting. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to cozy mystery readers.

I received this book for free in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.

Puuuuurrrrrrrfect Cozy Mystery!

I LOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVEEEDDDDDD this audiobook. It was so much fun and a quirky mystery. The characters are all so well written and the plot is just the perfect mix of mystery and fun. The purrrrrfect cozy mystery! As an animal lover, I know I'll be relistening to this one! The Narrator also did such a great job! She stayed engaged and really brought the characters to life. I'm for sure going to check out some of her other work and really hope to hear more from this author as well!

I'm Hooked and Want More

I loved everything about this book, the setting, the detective, Kallie, the animals, and the plot, not to mention the narration. I was completely hooked from beginning to end and want to read or more likely, listen to, more books in this series.

Kallie, a veterinarian, gets called to help law enforcement because they have a recalcitrant dog on the scene of a case. Kallie uses her animal communication ability to get the dog to not only give up the bone he's protecting, but show her where it came from. Unlike in some stories, Kallie's animal communication skills don't ever become annoying. She claims she learned them in a class and that anyone can do it if they know how. Skepticism of Kallie's abilities is predictable, but people come to believe her as she uses her ability to help law enforcement solve their crime.

Good read

This is a great story with clever characters and a good mystery. Great read but my only complaint is the narrator said mista in place of mister. That seems like a silly complaint but the word is said so often in this book that it became grating lol still worth the read!
