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.
