Wild Irish Heart (The Mystic Cove Series Book 1) - Tricia O'Malley

It was free and a book group chose it. I even voted for it. The concept sounded interesting.

 

But I can't. I just can't. This is the poster child for bad Romance. It was supposed to be mystical and Irish.

Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues
Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues (Mystic Bayou Book 3) - Molly Harper

Mystic Bayou, Book 2.5

I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the series.

The Characters:

Ingrid Asher:
Rob Aspern:
Bael, Jillian, Zed, Dani, Sonja

The Story:

Ingrid is our newest transplant to Mystic Bayou. In town to live without hiding and open her Ice Cream shop. Rob Aspen is a Mathematician brought to Mystic Bayou by the League to study the Rift. For Rob it was basically love at first sight. He literally couldn’t move as he watched Ingrid string Zed up with a tree. Watching Ingrid integrate into Mystic Bayou was fun. She and Rob trying to navigate into a relationship was good too. I’m glad Rob was able to find someone to love.

Ms Harper did not disappoint in the Zed/Bael department. And girls night brought about many giggles. *insert toothy grin here*

Selkies Are a Girl's Best Friend by Molly Harper

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This was a great little audiobook! This is the third book in the Mystic Bayou series but I was pretty confident that it would work well as a stand-alone. It did work very well on its own but now I kind of want to go back and read the earlier books. Funny how that works. I thought that this book was fun from beginning to end and I had a great time meeting some of the residents of this strange town.

Sonja can handle just about anything. She works for the League and seems to be able to get things done. She is given the task of being the liaison for the town's new doctor. Will has taken the position as the new doctor but he wasn't expecting to see the ailments that seem to be popping up around town. He hasn't lived in Mystic Bayou for a very long time and it is obvious that some things have changed. 

Sonja and Will were great together. I thought that they had really great chemistry and seemed to mesh really well. It was fun to watch them work with each other and I really enjoyed it when they opened up to each other. Will had quite a few hang-ups in regards to starting a relationship which made sense considering his history. 

I loved the way that this story was written. It had all of the humor that I have come to expect from Molly Harper which kept things really light. The story also had a lot of heart with the characters dealing with some real issues and moving forward in their lives. I thought that the characters in Mystic Bayou were very well done. I especially enjoyed getting to meet Will's brother. 

Amanda Ronconi and Jonathan Davis did a fabulous job with the narration. I really thought that their voices worked well together in this story and it is always nice to have two narrators for a story that is told from two different points of view. I thought that they both did a great job with the characters voices and were able to add some emotion into the story. I wouldn't hesitate to listen to more from this pair of narrators.

I would recommend this book to others. I thought that this story was funny, original, romantic, and exciting. I couldn't stop listening because I just had to know what else could happen in the strange town of Mystic Bayou. I can't wait to read more from this delightful series.

I received a copy of this audiobook from Audible Originals.

Initial Thoughts
This was fun! I have not read any of the previous books in this series and I can confirm that this book works very well on its own. I thought that the relationship between Will and Sonja was well done and I really enjoyed the friendship between Jillian and Sonja. This was rather comical with a lot of fun references worked into the story. I thought that the narration was great and added a lot to the story.

Audio Review: Selkies are a Girl's Best Friend (Mystic Bayou, #3) by Molly Harper (Author), Amanda Ronconi (Narrator), Jonathan Davis (Narrator)
Selkies are a Girl's Best Friend (Mystic Bayou #3) - Molly Harper, Amanda Ronconi,Jonathan Davis

 

 

I'm not usually drawn to paranormal stories, but Selkies Are A Girl's Best Friend could have me changing my point of view. Harper creates a world where being unique is not the exception, but the rule. Mystic Bayou is a place of acceptance that could teach us a lot in the real world. Sonja and the mysterious Will are our tour guides into a world full of chaos and humor. In an ever changing climate, it's the ability to unite in the scary moments that makes Mystic Bayou an eclectically, beautiful canvas. What I love most about Molly Harper is that she dares to be different. With the help of a dangerously smart and wickedly funny group of characters, as well as topnotch vocal talent, Selkies touched the dreamer in me that I often forget still exists.
