    1. The story has been reviewed from others very well, so I will tell you what I liked about it: the way the animals are portrayed. Of course it implements our projection on to them. But still Clea Simon obviously loves animals and spends a lot of time studying them.What strikes me most is that Lily the pitbull-rescue-dog is drawn as a lovable soul, that just does not understand what happened. Thank you for that Clea. Finally someone rallying for those beautiful animals. It becomes so clear, through [...]


    2. Small town life in Beauville is pretty much the same as any small town in New England. It is also the hometown for budding animal behaviorist Pru Marlowe. Pru had moved to New York City to do her schooling, but she didn’t quite finish. Between working herself sick, working toward her certification, and the internship required of a behaviorist, she’d ended up in the hospital discovering that she could hear the thoughts of the animals around her. There were far too many voices assaulting her i [...]


    3. I was pleasantly surprised by this cozy. I've wearied of most cozies written by 21st-century authors as too cute, too much romance, and way too little mystery. This one was several notches above, both in the writing and the characterization. If the series still has a "gimmick"-- a pet rescuer who can communicate with animals by thoughts -- it's so well done that I was convinced it's possible. Cats figure in this more than the dog who is the main suspect in a murder, but animal lovers in general [...]


    4. I received a free e-galley of Dogs Don’t Lie by Clea Simon from the publisher, Poisoned Pen Press.Dogs Don’t Lie centers around the murder of Charles, owner of a pit bull named Lily (a.k.a. Tetris). The murder is staged to appear that Lily killed Charles. Animal psychic and behaviorist, Pru Marlowe, works as Lily’s trainer and finds Charles’ body during a routine training session. Recognizing Lily’s innocence, Pru must search for the true murderer in order to get Lily off the hook for [...]


    5. This is the first book I've read by Clea Simon, but it won't be my last. I really like the concept of this series. I don't really consider it noir. Perhaps it is very dark by the standards of cozy readers. On the spectrum of cozy to noir, this book would be somewhere in the middle. That happens to be the type of mystery I prefer, not too extreme in either direction.


    6. Dogs Don’t LieBy: Clea SimonPublisher: Poisoned Pen PressCopyright April 2011Pru Marlowe couldn’t wait to get out of her small town. Now years later she is running home to get away from herself. She has a gift that while helpful in her chosen profession as an animal behaviorist is driving her a bit out of her mind. After her mother passes away, and living in the house she grew up in, she starts a business working with pet owners teaching them (after talking to their pets) what they need to d [...]


    7. I thought this was a really good mystery (which was almost a cozy mystery). Pru is an interesting character. She talks to animals and is a little unsure of herself but she seems in control throughout this entire novel. She can take of herself even when a few insecurities. The mystery was good and found it kept me guessing.


    8. I picked this book from netgalley on a whim. I usually do not read animal books but something about this caught my eye and I am glad I gave it a chance.The mystery is of course who killed Charles and why. Pru is trying to come to terms with her "gift" of hearing the animals, the gift that caused her to run from the big city home to small town of Berkshire where everyone knows your name and your business.I found Pru to be an adorable main character who is able to communicate with animals. Pru is [...]


    9. Pru Marlowe was training to be an animal behaviorist, until she managed to work herself sick. She then woke up to realize she could hear animals’ thoughts, beginning with her own cat, Wallis. She tried to escape the animals’ voices by heading back home to a small town and told everyone it was because of her ailing mother. When her mother passed away, she inherited her childhood home. Pru was trying to build a business of working with people’s animals, secretly using her ability to hear the [...]


    10. This is not the sort of mystery I usually read, but I was in the mood for something a little lighter. I read the back cover and figured I "might' get through the first chapter. I was so surprised that I really, really liked this book. Pru Marlowe is an animal psychic, who is owned by a cat named Wallis. She's settled down in a small town after the passing of her mother. Pru advertises herself as an animal behaviorist so as not to attract any attention. Oh boy! That sure isn't working out for her [...]


    11. This was a fun book. I loved the way the heroine, Pru has conversations with her cat Wallis, a ferret named Frank, a bichon frise called Growler, a pit bull, and numerous other felines. I really enjoyed that.This is basically a whodunit, but with a twist. The twist being that animals are the key behind figuring it out. Pru is a "dog whisperer" who hears what the animals are saying, but doesn't always interpret it the right way. In this case, a pit bull and a kitten are the key witnesses to the m [...]


    12. This book had some really good parts, but boy, did it drag, especially the second half. Visits to the same people, covering the same old ground over and over. The animals are way smarter than the humans and frankly, are what made the book readable. The main protag was more like a cardboard figure just going back and forth over the same territory trying to figure things out. Some clues (provided by the animals) seemed to come from nowhere. Sometimes the animals seemed to have such a good understa [...]


    13. In Dogs Don't Lie: A Pru Marlowe Pet Noir, the first book in author Clea Simon's Pet Noir series, we meet protagonist, Pru Marlowe, a young twenty-something animal-behaviorist who has returned to her small Berkshire hometown after hastily fleeing New York City under less than ideal circumstances. I really like the premise of this series, which revolves around Pru having psychic communicative abilities, at least with animals of the non-human variety. On the negative side, I thought there was too [...]


    14. Clea Simon is one of my favorite Authors and here we are given the tasty treat of a new series, involving, pets, their behaviors, their thoughts, and how, if we were given the gift that Pru Marlowe has been, would communicate with each other.Pru Marlowe is only a bit away from being a certified animal behaviorist. She has a mystery illness in her past which halted her studies but gave her an incredible gift of being able to communicate with her animal clients, if she can learn to control the gif [...]


    15. "Dogs Don’t Lie" by Clea Simon is a good, quick mystery in a small town. A man is found dead at his home and all signs point to his dog, but did the dog really do it? The best parts of the book for me are that Pru Marlow could understand what her cat, Wallis, was saying and the Dog, Lilly, becomes a hero at the end! The plot was a bit confusing, but it’s still a good read!


    16. I thoroughly enjoyed this light hearted tale. Pru Marlowe is an animal psychic who relies on her animals to solve a murder mystery. While I usually read more hard boiled thrillers, I especially liked the canine and feline characters!!!


    17. Thoroughly enjoyed Clea Simon's DOGS DON'T LIE, a great murder mystery featuring an animal psychic, her feline "roommate" and an endearing pit bull accused of murder. It's a great read for anyone who loves animals and mystery. Can't wait for the next book in Ms. Simon's Pet Noir series!


    18. Love the idea of someone who can pick up on animal thoughts---and the way they are voiced in the audiobook. My favorites are Pru's cat, Wallis, Albert's ferret, Frank, and Delia's kitten, Tulip. Can't wait to listen to more of this series!


    19. Interesting premise. Sometimes I think I can "almost" hear my dog . what if someone really could pick up on what animals are sensing, feeling, thinking??


    20. Good start to a new series - I'd like to read more of them. Interesting mix of characters, and I especially like Wallis.


    21. Dogs Don't Lie - Pru Marlowe 1In A Nutshell:A novel concept for the paranormal mystery genre. It is not cosy. The heroine, Pru Marlowe, is an animal psychic. But she has not got her head around that ability as yet, which makes her very human. Who would believe they can relate to animals this way! So, when Lily, the pit bull, is blamed for the death of her owner, only Pru, who understands the truth, can save her. The story told from the animals POV is well done and seems realistic. Frank, the ham [...]


    22. I had a hard time getting into it. Maybe if I was in a different mood or another time, but it just didn't catch me. Maybe because it is the idea of a dog being accused of mauling its owner.



    23. Pru was working on her degree to be an animal behaviorist, but when Pru starts hearing the animals it isn't the sunny world of Dr. Doolittle for her. She ends up sleep deprived and overwhelmed and consequently drops out of school with only a few weeks remaining to have completed her degree, and pulls up stakes to go to her small hometown. The idea was to get away from New York with its multitudes of pets while going home to take care of her ailing mother. The story begins with Pru restraining Li [...]


    24. Wow! What a great book! I was looking about when the "other books you might like" section popped up with a book called "Cats Can't Shoot," by Clea Simon. I couldn't resist. I opened and read the sample chapter had posted and was immediately sucked in. Only one thing stopped me from hitting "Add to Cart" right then and there. If I was going to enter into a brand new world, I wanted to get in on the ground floor. So I searched for other books in the "Pru Marlowe Pet Noir" series. Sure enough, "D [...]



    25. This review originally appeared on my blog at gimmethatbook.Thanks to the author for this review copy! When I met her at BookCon 2015, she was signing copies of two books. Fans got to pick which one they wanted and Ms Simon graciously shared a few words with each person as she inscribed their copy. I was intrigued, since I never heard of “pet noir”, and knew right away I wanted to review this book.Pru is an animal trainer who just happens to be able to “hear” thoughts in her head, though [...]


    26. Dog's Don't Lie wasn't the lighthearted paranormal mystery I was expecting. The first in a new series, Simon introduces Pru Marlowe, who develops a psychic sensitivity to animals after a physical collapse, just weeks shy of graduating as an animal behavourist. Overwhelmed, Pru returns to her hometown, ostensibly to care for her ailing mother, but desperately needing to adjust to her new ability. With her mother's death, Pru decides to put her training to use and is hired by Charles to train the [...]


    27. First Line: The problem with murder is that it's messy.Pru Marlowe is an animal psychic. To escape the cacophony of furry voices in her head, she ran from the big city back to her small town home in the Berkshires hoping for a little peace. Unfortunately her training as an animal behaviourist and her need for money to pay the bills put her right in the path of Lily, a rescue dog, and Charles, her person. Now Charles is dead, and the distraught Lily looks like the killer. After all, she's a pit b [...]


    28. Animal behaviorist Pru Marlowe dropped out of school just before getting her degree, but she has something even degreed animal behaviorists don't have. She can talk to animals and they talk to her.Talking and listening to animals tips the scale for the overworked and sleep-deprived student. After a hospitalization she leaves the city and returns to her hometown in the Berkshires. Her mother died shortly after her return and she now lives in her childhood home. Pru works as a dog walker and anima [...]
