Dogs Don’t Lie by Clea Simon (Blackstone)

Tavia Gilbert narrates this first person narration sounding exactly as Pru would sound, and as Wallis, Lily and all the other animals would sound (if they really could talk) as well; she makes it all seem very real.  The fast pace and tone are is just right, even for the human characters.  Pru knows animals, they help her and themselves, and it’s frequently funny to hear what they tell her; it’s good mystery too.
