Publisher's Summary

Molly Harper is back with the next wickedly funny, wildly enchanting Mystic Bayou novel - available in audio first!

Sonja Fong isn’t afraid of a little chaos. As director of the League’s research center in Mystic Bayou, a tiny town in Louisiana that’s home to supernatural creatures and humans alike, she’s responsible for making sure things run smoothly. It’s not an easy task when her daily memos include lines like “new equipment is needed because the old equipment was destroyed by a temper tantrum involving dragonfire.”

Her job puts her in the path of Dr. Will Carmody, a mysterious shifter who’s returned to Mystic Bayou after a long absence only to find that he’s now considered an outsider. To make matters worse, the rift - a tear in the fabric of the universe that is leaking supernatural energy into the bayou - is unraveling at an alarming rate. Now Sonja and Will must team up to fix the rift and save Mystic Bayou from certain disaster, all while their own romance is heating up. Can they have a future together while the whole world is falling apart?

Wonderful Narration

The books in this series are fun, but what makes them delightful is the narration. I love both voices, but especially Jonathan Davis. His low, rumbling Cajun is, well . . . Magical.

Mystic Bayou is where I want to live

I love this series. I love Molly Harper - but this series has the right amount of snark and wit and hilarious characters and the narrators are BANG ON!!! I think they complement Molly Harper’s writing! Please please please don’t let this be the last! I need more Zed, Jillian and well - all of the residents of Mystic Bayou!

This series is perfect to listen to after a long stressful day at work - it helps make being stuck in traffic a blessing rather than a curse. It’s light it’s charming it’s funny - I need more of these kinds of books in my life for when I feel the need to de-stress!

an excellent addition to the series

this is an excellent addition to the series this is our time and the element of the sulcus was really cool this was a spinner didn't expect and I like how the drama is unfolding I think my only qualm so far with this series is that I started it before 10 of these books were out.
as usual I would highly recommend.

Dares to be different.

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.

Fun, schmaltzy, predictable in all the right ways

I think I love Molly Harper. Yes, her books are predictable. Yes, I knew who the villan was from the moment she/he entered the story. Yes, the books could be longer. They are also fun, escapist, hilarious, magical romance tales that leave you smiling and hoping all the main characters are real people and Mystic Bayou is a real place. Good times..

Oh my sweet tea!! Sonja finally gets her story!! *Happy Dance*

I really enjoyed this story! It was great to see tough as nails Sonja find her weakness. Who just happens to be in the form of a Selkie. Will is great too! He is just the perfect amount of damaged for Sonja. It was great to watch (listen) them both overcome their insecurities about a relationship. I can’t wait to see what is next in this series!!! I really really hope that we will learn more about Mr. & Mrs. Fong!!

As always I listened to this book on audio. Thank you Audible.com for making this book free to members :). Amanda Ronconi is amazing as always!! And even though I am not a fan of the dual narrators in an audiobook Jonathon Davis is growing on me. I look forward to the next installment in this series.

love Mystic Bayou... want more

I want more... Molly Harper is hands down one of my favorite authors. Her combination of humor, action, and paranormal characters is one of the best in the genre.

Another brilliant narration by Amanda Ronconi and team.

I really enjoyed this book! I was waiting for Sonya's story and it did not disappoint. This was a good, easy listen. And of course the characters from the previous books made it all the better.

Too short

I liked it but it felt rushed. The story was way too short. I wanted more to happen or get further into the rift issue.

Still looking forward to the next installment.
