Ingrid Asher is the newest resident of Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where shapeshifters, vampires, witches and dragons live alongside humans.
Ingrid doesn’t ask for much. The solitary tree nymph just wants to live a quiet life running her ice-cream shop in peace. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to shake her new neighbor, Rob Aspern, head of the League’s data science department and so good looking it just isn’t fair.
If there’s one thing Ingrid doesn’t need, it’s someone poking around in her business. But the more she gets to know the hunky mathematician, the more she finds herself letting her guard down. Can she trust him with her secrets, or will her past destroy everything?
Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues by Molly Harper takes us back to Mystic Bayou for a quickie romance delivered with feels and laughter. Warning: It will leave you craving ice cream in the worst way! ?
While this could work as a standalone, and Harper does a nice job introducing and explaining the characters and town of Mystic Bayou, I recommend listening the series in order of release. It will increase your enjoyment of the series, particularly when it comes to the banter between characters.
Ingrid Asher is the newest resident of Mystic Bayou and the opening scene to this tale was hilarious. Ingrid is a tree nymph. She is socially awkward and untrusting around humans, others and in particular, the League. She’s bought a farm, and a local business where she plans to open a creamery.
Rob Aspern, head of the League’s data science department is also Ingrid’s neighbor. Whenever he is around her he becomes socially inept and quite frankly it was hilarious. Ingrid who is suspicious of everyone made it more so by her reactions.
I loved watching the romance unfold as Harper gave us a mix of adorkable and awkward moments. Of course Jillian and Danica get involved. How could they not!
Talk of mouth watering ice cream flavors had me making a trip to the local ice cream shop. Then they had to go and mention pie. ???
We learned a little more about Mystic Bayou and the tear/rift as Harper updated us on the town, previous couples, and more.
The conflict could have been resolved with communication but wasn’t dragged out and led to character growth, secrets, and tender moments. All of this added to the swoon and feels.
I love listening to this series on audio. The narrations have been stellar. It captures the snark and personalities of these characters. Amanda Ronconi and Jonathan Davis narrate the dual POV. These two are perfect together. They enhance the humor, oddities and characters.
Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues was a fun installment to this series. I liked Ingrid and look forward to visiting Mystic Bayou again.Humor, romance and more await you in Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues By Molly Harper a #MysticBayou novella. @Audible #JIAM #loveaudiobooks #ParanormalRomance #MustListen Click To Tweet
