Got a faerie problem? I'm your girl.
Magic gone awry? Not a problem.
But when kids go missing and the search comes up dry, my boss decides I need a partner.
The pain in the ass kind.
Now I have a problem.

As a field agent in the FBI's ultra-elite Occult Crimes Division...aka the OCD, it's my job to investigate cases of the magical variety. I'm the best at it, but it seems my employer doesn't share my confidence when he pairs me up with the bureau's newest golden boy. Turns out he's the biggest tool I've ever met.

Logan Hawthorne.
Arrogant. Attractive as hell.
Oh yeah--and human.

I don't have time to teach this smug & straight-laced suit about the shadow realm of faerie that exists below our feet. I've got a list of missing kids a mile long and no time to waste in finding the creature who's snatching them.

Now if only there was an explanation for this talking cat...


Wiretaps & Whiskers is book one in the The Faerie Files by Emigh Cannaday.

I wanted to like Wiretaps & Whiskers, but unfortunately this book didn’t work for me. I ended up DNF’ing at 37%.

I had trouble getting into the plot, world, and characters. Nothing captured my attention.

Our leads, Elena and Logan, bicker constantly. The bickering got to be childish. As for the individual characters nothing stood out about them. Logan in the begging makes a big deal about not believing in magic when he’s transferred into the OCD. The devision doesn’t do anything to inform him and once on a case with Elena she gives in and shows him some magic to open his eyes. When this happens he’s like ok. Just too quick to accept. Then we have Elena who is suppose to be the best agent to deal with the supernaturals, but she doesn’t show any great talents or anything really special to make her the best for the job. Last, the whole plot and set up was’t working for me.

Wiretaps & Whiskers 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.

Rated: DNF

  1. Sounds interesting, but your review has me convinced it’s too problematic. Sometimes you just have to DNF.

    • Ya, this sounded interesting and I read a few other reviews, but it turned out not to be for me and I DNF’d it. Thanks for visiting!
