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."
He job puts her in the path of Dr. Will Camody, 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?
Selkies are a Girl’s Best Friend by Molly Harper is the third audiobook in the Mystic Bayou series and I’ve got to tell you, I am loving this quirky little paranormal town. Romance, mystery, suspense and an overall story ARC will soon have you craving them too!
This is my first series by Harper and I love her mix of romance, suspense and humor. From unique paranormal creatures to the town of Mystic Bayou itself and its odd touches of magical realism, shifters and paranormal energies. You never know what will happen.
Dr. Will Camody has returned to Mystic Bayou. He’s moved into his family’s homestead along the remote shores in Mystic Bayou. When he shows up for an unscheduled interview with Jill, Sonja Fong the director thinks he is a salesman. It was an interesting first encounter.
It seems Mystic Bayou is finally getting a medical clinic and just in time as Jill seems to be ah, setting everything on fire! ? No more on that… you’ll have to listen for answers.
Mysterious bookkeeping, Selkie lore, romance and danger await you in this delicious, suspenseful, and hilarious installment. At just under seven hours this tale is perfect for your commute or an afternoon at home.
Narrated in dual narrative by Amanda Ronconi and Jonathan Davis, I loved getting inside Sonja and Will’s head. The chapters alternate between them and enhanced my enjoyment. Both narrators were excellent and Ronconi has long been a favorite.
Wicked banter, lore, miscommunication, character growth and fun in the water await you…..

I will have to check this series out! It sounds like something I would really love!
This series sounds really fun! I can’t find the third one as anything but an audiobook though. Wonder if it’ll be released as an ebook like the other two.
Yes, they are exclusive to Audible first, then release later in other formats.
Ohhh ok! Thanks for explaining.
I have every intentions of listening to this one. For some reason(Ronconi I am sure)I always listen to Molly Harper books. Glad it was another good one!
Gah I want to listen to this series. I have Audible escape which my deal runs out soon and I have so many audio ARCs and library books, it has not been happening. Sigh. Thanks for letting me know it is fabulous.

I agree, this is a fun series. I strongly recommend her Jane Jameson/Half-Moon Hollow series, also narrated by Amanda Ronconi. The snarky humor is fabulous!
I loved her Nice Girl vampire series, and I need to read more by her. Glad you’re loving this new series!
I have the first book yet to read. This sounds like such a fun series:)

Wouldn’t it be fun to live in a paranormal town?
What a fun and steamy series! Thanks for the review, Kimba! 🙂
It’s been so long since I haven’t read any of her books, but I should go back to them!
This was my first series by Molly Harper, too. I love the way she combines small town, paranormal and suspense in these.
