You’ve Got Tail by USA Today bestselling author Renee George is a laugh-out-loud cozy mystery. Kidnapping, murder, and a town full of people hiding the truth will keep Sunny Haddock busy as she tries to unravel the strange happenings in Peculiar, Missouri. Fall in love with a hilarious cast of characters in Book 1 of Peculiar Mysteries; a paranormal romantic comedy that will not only have you laughing…it will also melt your heart.

 

Welcome to Peculiar, Missouri!

 

Sunny Haddock, an animal-loving vegetarian psychic, is stoked to leave California behind to start a new life in the Ozark town of Peculiar with her best friend Chavvah Trimmel. She ups the moving date when Chav goes missing, and Sunny high tails it to the small town. What Sunny doesn’t realize is that she’s moving into a community of were-shifters, and they don’t want a human resident. Especially one dumb enough to arrive a couple of days before the full moon—the only night of the month shifters have to take their pure animal forms.

 

When the gorgeous Babel Trimmel, Chav's younger brother, (along with the sheriff, the mayor, and some other nice folk) suggests Sunny haul her U-haul and butt back out of town, she’s undeterred. Her psychic abilities might be out-of-whack, and blood makes her faint, but she’s not a quitter. Besides, she's not about to go anywhere until she finds out what happened to Chavvah.

 

But Sunny has more to deal with than unfriendly townsfolk...like disturbing killer visions and the dog-like animal no one else sees that seems to be stalking her every move. To make matters worse, she is finding Babel to be more irresistible than crack on a donut.

 

Sunny needs to get her ability and her hormones under control if she wants to solve the mystery and save her best friend.

I was looking for a fun paranormal cozy mystery to dive into, but You’ve Got Tail ended up being a disappointment. The story had potential, but things went down hill fast. I’m not sure why I kept reading.

 

I did like Sunny’s psychic ability, but she lacked any understanding or training with it. I found the characters names funny, but then that got old fast. The last thing I enjoyed was Sunny’s introduction to the town where she meets Babel for the first time. It put a smile on my face.

 

Sunny comes to Peculiar to find her missing friend. She keeps saying she’s going to find her friend, yet she doesn’t do a thing. She has these psychic visions all over town, but doesn’t understand what it means. I would have liked her, but she didn’t do anything special. I was annoyed by all the rambling, which goes on and on, that she does in her head. And, she wasn’t good at detecting. All she does is run around clueless sticking her nose in things and getting into trouble.

 

The romance; between Sunny and Babel was nonexistent. Their was no development at all and I wouldn’t call it a romance. It was confusing; is what it was. These two are either having sex or they aren’t. Their was no building of any type of relationship.

 

The writing was fine, but the plot left a lot to be desired. It was obvious very early on who the villain(s) are, at least for one of them. Their was very little focus on the actually bad guys. We literally never even meet some of them.

 

Anyway, You’ve Got Tail was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.

Bubble... Bubble...

 

June Heal has nothing to lose when she relocates her homeopathic cure shop, A Dose of Darla, from the flea market booth in her home town, to a quaint shop in the cozy but unusual little town of Whispering Falls, Kentucky. Or so it seems.

 

Cures and trouble...

 

Whispering Falls has a lot of secrets. From talking snow globes to whispering animals not to mention a few sprinkles of fairy dust, June realizes Whispering Falls is more magical than she thought. . .literally.

 

Magic stirs...

 

June discovers she was born into a family of psychics, and her homeopathic cures truly are magical. Unfortunately, they are not magical enough to save her from being the number one murder suspect when a member of the community that she had just had a disagreement with shows up face down in the lake with June’s lucky charm in the victim’s grasp.

 

And troubles double...

 

Add to that an attraction to her high school best friend, Sheriff Oscar Park and Mr. Prince Charming, her cat, is stealing charms from Belle’s Baubles, June is forced to clear her name in more ways than murder. After all, they don’t have cauldrons in jail.

A Charming Crime was interesting and it has some potential. 

 

This first book in the Magical Cures Mystery series was a crazy irritating mystery mess. I felt like I was being thrown all over the place with all the different information coming at me all at once. 

 

Our heroine June was frustrating as a character and all she eats are Ding Dongs. All most every page the author has her picking up a Ding Dong to eat. She’s bothered, lets have her eat a Ding Dong. She’s feeling overwhelmed, lets have her eat a Ding Dong. Does this girl not eat anything else?

 

June also finds her mother, Darla’s Diary. Does June sit down and read it? Nope. This Diary has a tone of information in it about Whispering Falls, Junes magical abilities, and more. If she had read it, well she would have been better prepared for the weirdness of Whispering Falls. 

 

Then we have the town, Whispering Falls, that is a magical community only for magical people to live in. Ok, so this town sounds cool, but they have all these weird ass laws. They where coming at me left and right and I couldn’t keep up with them. June was given a packet to read about the town and their laws, which she had to sign, and she never sat down and read it. By the end of the story the town is going to change some of the laws. Which is good and for the better, but it felt like the author wanted the storyline to go one way and for it to do that she had to change her laws. The story didn’t fell well thought out on the authors part.

 

Last, the murder mystery investigation. Why was her friend, Oscar, who is the police officer of Whispering Falls not investigating? Why was June running around doing the investigation? And, last I have to mention her plan to catch the killer was not thought out. I shook my head at her plan…

 

All I wanted was a fun paranormal cozy mystery to dive into and A Charming Crime left me feeling frustrated with everything. This book was not for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.
