Today I am reviewing "Dogs Don't Lie" by Lisa Shay is the 1st book in "A Kallie Collins Cozy Mystery" series. This is a new to me author, but I am glad I read the book as the series has a lot of potential.
You see, there’s this dog with a bone he’s not willing to part with.
On scene, the dog tells me the bone is human. Actually, he shows me the location of the body, complete with a human skull, through an animal-communication technique I learned a couple years ago. Now I have to explain how this works to the detective, convincing him I’m not the murderer.
Who knew a simple farm visit would put me in the middle of a murder investigation? Well, I did kinda jump into this mess. I had to. I know what happened. The two four-legged witnesses to the murder told me.
And I’m the only one listening.
I loved the setting of Medford, in southern Oregon with its forests it brought back memories of visiting Oregon as a child. I always like a small town setting where almost everyone knows one another. I enjoyed Kallie's relationship with her best friends, Grace and Sam, and the chemistry between Ben and Kallie. (could there be romance in the future)
I found myself engrossed in the story and reading it in one sitting. It was entertaining, full of twists and turns as well as a few surprises.
I look forward to reading the next installment in this series.
I requested and received a copy of the book from the publisher and NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I always love reading comments and getting to know my fellow cozy lovers.
