Summary

You've Got Tail by USA Today best-selling 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 One 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.

Quirky, fun and blessedly without the ridiculous self-inflicted idiotic angst so often found in the female heroines of the genre

Decently written, good story, great narration! Not a work of literary character development- but it's a stress-relieving, fun story. Well read with characters interesting enough to evoke a decent level of emotional response. The humor was enough to bring forth those out-loud, unexpected laughs and I look forward to another- as long as it's a Hollie Jackson read!

Talk about a loaner--one human-a town of shifters.

Where does You've Got Tail rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right up at the top for enjoyment.

What did you like best about this story?

All though I am not usually a fan of first person--Hollie Jackson is the perfect Sunny, feisty, snarky, little human in a paranormal town.

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many favorites to choose.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did and since it is 8 hours long--oh well, who needs to sleep.

Any additional comments?

I read this book over a year ago, and this is my book review--if possible the audio was even better.

Original Book review:What great mystery--a fun read with some really serious situations. I am not (usually) a fan of first person narrative. Ms. George has educated me. Now I know I am a fan of witty, funny and sharp first person repartee. Yes, Sunny talks to herself—a lot. And it is often hysterical.
Sunny travels to Patience to find her friend, Chavvah, who has gone missing, just like the older brother she came to town to find. Sunny is also an on again off again psychic. Little does she know what she is about to find. A town of shifters, all kinds, who don't want her to find their secret and want her gone, a sexy little brother to her friend who is anything but little and wants Sunny. No, no—friends brother and much younger man—not good.

But the secrets that plague the town are killing people and the longer she stays, the more people she meets, the more her abilities give clues to the crimes. So much so that Sunny is repeatedly attacked and a ghost of the missing attaches to her—and not in human form.

There is not one dull minute in this read, there are laughs and emotions, characters you love, hate, who repel, and let's not forget a crazy female or two. This is one you should not miss. If you do YOU'LL BE SORRY....

A fun light hearted mystery

If you could sum up You've Got Tail in three words, what would they be?

It is a fun mystery with a taste of supernatural.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The main character was fun and quirky

Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes it is an easy lesson.

Audio issues

Annoying audio issues sprinkled throughout. It’d cut out and skip in random places on words.

Disappointed

This book would have been a decent story if the main character wasn't a desperate sex-crazed nymphomaniac. I was a little disheartened book was recommended by Audible as it is not a book I would ever chose to read. To much swearing and cheap sex scenes, which, I think is only used when the author lacks the ability to write anything of substance. The main character spent more time lusting over her friend's brother than actually finding her friend. Not a good character trait.

hard core romance with supernatural edge

had I known this story relies more on the steamy sex scenes than actual story, would've given it a big miss.

Actions speak louder....

Sure took her sweet time to search for her friend. Seemed rather indifferent, more interested in the brother. Not sure I’d want her for a best friend.

I’m hooked!

I admit I bought this because it was on sale. I thought why not. Well I’m absolutely hooked on the series and have now purchased them all!
