You’ve Got Tail (Peculiar Mysteries Book 1)
by Renee George
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.
There’s so much animosity when Sunny Haddock sets foot at Peculiar, Missouri. She’s on a mission to find her friend, Chavvah Trimmel, who’s been missing for weeks. Seeing Chavvah’s younger brother lying on the floor with no clothes on isn’t exactly the welcome Sunny has been hoping for. Sure Babel Trimmel is hot and gorgeous, but he’s much younger than her. Plus she can’t date her bestfriend’s brother, because that would be violating #girlscode…
Inasmuch as Babel wants Sunny for himself, he isn’t the type to stay in Peculiar for a long time. He’s there to find her sister and nothing else… But he needs to find his missing older brother, too. Could their disappearance be related? And why are all the townspeople hellbent on luring Sunny Haddock away? What does the town of Peculiar be hiding.
Sunny had admitted herself that she’s no detective nor does she have sleuthing skills. But she’s doing her best to find her friend and stay alive amidst all the threats and attacks she had endured during her stay in Peculiar. Sunny is the endgame and she’s much more than a friend. Did I mention that she’s also a psychic?
I needed something to cheer me up this week and Renee George made that possible. Loved Sunny Haddock and Babel Trimmel, they proved that age doesn’t matter in love, nor tails and paws. Shifter stories had always been one of my favorites and this book didn’t disappoint.
