    This series is about a town in swamp-land Louisiana that is populated by a mixture of humans, assorted shifters, fae, and other magical things. Those alligators that seem to be peeking through your window while you are changing? Yeah, those are the local gator-shifters that are pervs. They also have a giant magic canyon in the marshland that leaks magic all over everything and is turning the humans into other things. yeah, right. That's what the gators said and now my nude ass is posted all over This series is about a town in swamp-land Louisiana that is populated by a mixture of humans, assorted shifters, fae, and other magical things. Those alligators that seem to be peeking through your window while you are changing? Yeah, those are the local gator-shifters that are pervs. They also have a giant magic canyon in the marshland that leaks magic all over everything and is turning the humans into other things. yeah, right. That's what the gators said and now my nude ass is posted all over the internet. Stupid GoPro! Don't believe the magical perverts in this town! They lie! With the humans changing, it is time for science to step in. Cuz you know that science will totally figure out why a girl turned into some Russian mythical monster with long fingers that tickles people to death. There is totally a logical explanation for this. And, with a whole gaggle of new people - scientists and a gazillion employees - come the inevitable hook-ups. And, with the hook-ups comes the inevitable babies.... which presents a bit of a problem. In this book we get to see the complications that arise when a bird-shifter and reptile-shifter make a 'baby'. You know what those two things have in common, right? Hint: it ain't no live births. Will she have the baby or the egg? Let's find out. This will be fun! The heroine in this book is a human that we have known since book one, Sonja. She's the human bestie of the first book's heroine and runs the "League" that is conducting the sciencey stuff in the bayou. She meets Will, a selkie (seal shifter) and is pretty bitchy to him. I was worried for a bit that I was not going to like Sonja, but she turned out okay enough. The best part of her was her friendship with Jillian (yay for all Jills in any form!). I liked their bff ways: When Jillain was making Sonja promise her something: Jillian pulled a copy of a magazine out of her back pocket and shoved it at Sonja. "Swear!" Chris Hemsworth was smiling seductively at Sonja from the cover of "Men's Health". "Swear on the abs of Thor!" That is a sacred vow being made. The abs of Thor are no laughing matter. Personally, I'm a fat Thor fan. I can relate to him a lot more, he was definitely funnier, and he's got snacks. So, this book is Sonja and Will's love story, with a little bit about the town's issues going on. I like the town and the recurring characters. I hope that we will get a little more of them in the next book. And, make it funnier too. This one didn't have as much funny as I know Molly Harper can bring.

    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.

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.

    These two worked perfectly together... I really enjoyed this latest instalment of the Mystic Bayou series. Sonja Fong is my favourite kind of heroine. She's smart, attractive, independent and strong-willed. I knew from the beginning she was going to need a hero who could be as put together as she is. When I met Dr Will Camody, I knew he was her perfect match...even if he does have a tail.

Molly Harper has shared with us another entertaining story and brought it to life for me by matching it to two very talented narrators. This series is one of my very favourites when it comes to dual narration. Both, Amanda Ronconi and Jonathan Davis are very good at giving each character their own voice. I love it when Zed's character gets all passionate and Mr Davis really expresses it well. I'm always chuckling when Zed and Bael get together for chats. Selkies are a Girl's Best Friend is short, sweet and left me completely satisfied. For an audiobook, I don't mind that it's short at all. I get a good laugh, a bit of angst to keep the story moving and a touch of intrigue that kept me guessing. I had my suspicions from the start, and I was right on the mark. The connection between Sonja and Will was obvious and I never doubted they were meant for each other. If you're looking for a quick and entertaining audiobook, I highly recommend giving Molly Harper's, Mystic Bayou series a go.

    Although I enjoyed the story and liked going back to Mystic Bayou, this installment in the series wasn’t quite as good as the first two. It’s still worth a listen and certainly made doing chores more entertaining.

Mystic Bayou is in desperate need of a medical doctor and the League hires, Will, who is an original resident, but moved away. He’s a bit hesitant to return home, but he knows it’s what his selkie nature needs. It’s another fun and wild ride through the paranormal haven of Mystic Bayou. I like that previous characters continue to play important roles in the plot and that the story is part romance and part rift related. The romance is instant attraction and sweet. Will has trouble trusting others and Sonja is self-sufficient. They find common ground, have a few missteps, but in the end a romance and trust develop. The rift continues to be an issue that is mounting. The bad guys are obvious, yet it’s still fun to dive deeper into the rift and what is happening to the residents of Mystic Bayou Narration: As with the previous novels in the series, the story is shared in dual narration. We have Amanda Ronconi reading Sonja’s POV and Jonathan Davis reading Will’s POV. I find that the more I listen to this series the duel narration has grown on me. At first I wasn't a fan, but now it works. Overall both did a great job. Sulkies are a Girl's Best Friend was another fun audio that will keep you wrapped up in the story. Rated: 4 Stars

    “It was like a My Little Pony take on a Cthulhu nightmare, all beguiling eye-gouging colors and the bone deep knowledge that there were powerful things out in the dark that could easily and cheerfully devour you.” Between the sexy merman and the twisted powers about, this should have been great but it just wasn’t. It was just ok, for a variety of reasons, like the rest. “It was like a My Little Pony take on a Cthulhu nightmare, all beguiling eye-gouging colors and the bone deep knowledge that there were powerful things out in the dark that could easily and cheerfully devour you.” Between the sexy merman and the twisted powers about, this should have been great but it just wasn’t.

Things took a sharp turn for the worse in, I would guess, the last third of the book. The non-romantic plot is pretty straight-forward: there are unusual and unexplained business expanses and a character we never met who is the assistant-manager of the finance department and makes unwanted passes at the female lead. She doesn't catch on at first, which is fine because she is putting the pieces together and getting distracted by her love life and her best friend's pregnancy. Then, two-thirds of the way through, she swallows a stupid pill and begins to suspect Obvious Red Herring for no discernible reason, while Obvious Guilty Party never even crosses her mind. I hate when main characters get stupider than I am. The main conflict of the romantic plot is handled even worse. We see early on that one half of the romantic pair has some intimacy issues, which seem to be centered around this boundary that Must Not Be Crossed. As the story progresses, that character tells their romantic partner what the boundary is, and explains their issue and their trauma and why the boundary Must Not Be Crossed. Then, two-thirds of the way through, the romantic partner catches the character at a vulnerable moment (in the shower, with their back turned) and crosses the boundary. With nothing to say for themselves except "I couldn't help it." And then the jerk gets rewarded by the narrative, which essentially takes our traumatized character and beats "You need you get over your issues, you wimp!" into them. This is the sort of thing that should have the readers up in arms, that should not be acceptable in a romance novel in this day and age. I suspect the lack of reaction is at least partly due to the fact that the traumatized character is the male lead and the jerk that crosses a boundary they were specifically told Not To Cross is the female lead. Urgh! If the series continues, I don't know if I will. Maybe I'll have cooled down and be ready to give Molly Harper another chance by then.

    Unfortunately for me this series isn’t my favorite. The characters are interesting, but not enough. These stories tend to be shorter and the romance is taking a backstage to the plot. This would be fine if this was urban fantasy or if the main couple romance would blossom over a series of books. This is not the case. Very insta-love to me without a Paranormal explanation. Additionally this story dragged. The plot itself wasn’t very interesting added to the lack of romance or very little of it. Thi Unfortunately for me this series isn’t my favorite.

Finally the conflict (romance wise) was introduced and then the plot conflict all happened in a rush to conclusion. I’ve given this a good run. And perhaps I’ll read more as long as it’s (“free”) for me and I don’t have to use a credit. If I had to use a credit, I would pass.

    M. [storme reads a lot]

    I enjoyed reading this latest installment to the series, but it doesn’t hold up as strongly as the first two. I actually got halfway through, start getting bored, and just listened to the last chapter. The series is a tad formulaic. The rift is dangerous... murder mystery... love story swoon... the end. Molly Harper is a great author. I just did not care for this latest one. I’m looking forward to the next one though.

    In Selkies Are a Girl's Best Friend, Ms. Harper returns listeners to the quaint and crazy parish of Mystic Bayou, Louisiana. Picking up at some point after the previous titles, the story focuses on Jillian’s best friend, Sonja. Once a big city girl, Sonja has found a home in Mystic Bayou, and loves running the offices of the League. With the increasing number of unique-born and created shifters, the League hires Will to provide medical services to its denizens. Originally from Mystic Bayou, Will In Selkies Are a Girl's Best Friend, Ms. Harper returns listeners to the quaint and crazy parish of Mystic Bayou, Louisiana. Picking up at some point after the previous titles, the story focuses on Jillian’s best friend, Sonja. Once a big city girl, Sonja has found a home in Mystic Bayou, and loves running the offices of the League. With the increasing number of unique-born and created shifters, the League hires Will to provide medical services to its denizens. Originally from Mystic Bayou, Will was a bit hesitant to return home after so many years, but knows it is what his selkie nature wants. Selkies Are a Girl's Best Friend is another wild ride through the paranormal haven of Mystic Bayou. I love that as the series twists and progresses, past characters continue to play important roles in the plot. The story is equal parts romance and rift-related action. Sonja and Will come from different worlds but find an immediate attraction. He has trouble trusting others because of his parents’ horrible relationship. She has always been self-sufficient and in charge due to her upbringing. The pair find common ground, and although there are a few missteps, develop a trust and romance. They are easy together, finding a near-insta-love, which works in this face-paced story. When Sonja discovers discrepancies in the office spending reports, she is driven to discover what’s going on - irregularities are a no on her watch. Of course, this ties to the rift-related issues which continue to mount. While the bad guy seems to be pretty obvious to me, it’s still fun to watch Sonja put the pieces of the puzzle together. Narration: As with previous books in the series, the story is shared in a dual narrative, with Amanda Ronconi (AR) reading the parts told from Sonja’s POV and Jonathan Davis (JD) the parts shared from Will’s POV. Overall, both do a good job, and at this point, I find that I enjoy both equally. One change for me is that I listened to the whole story at 1.25x speed, whereas in the past I changed speeds with the change in narrator. That made the experience more pleasant right off the bat. I found that JD continues to expand his range for his male voice, giving each a unique and identifiable sound. I enjoyed Will, who didn’t have a strong accent, and still loved hearing the slow drawls of the other characters (previous books). AR’s voice for Sonja was slightly different than the other female characters, but the range of difference isn’t tremendous. While I still feel the two narrators have narrative styles and voices that are a bit on the opposite ends of the spectrum, so when they perform the voices of the same characters, they sound completely different, it still works. Like an episode of Scooby Doo, Selkies Are a Girl's Best Friend is a bit outrageous and laugh out loud fun. Toss in a sweet romance and you get an entertaining listen.

    Have I read the previous 2? Nope Where there a backstory that I missed? Yes Did I feel left out? Nope! It is not that hard to figure things out and just go with it. Sonja works in a weird ass place. She gets a new coworker, a hot one. Sparks fly, after a while. Her boss and best friend seems fun, I'd like to see how she met her dragon. But yes the book is not that long so the drama is at a minimum, which I like. They fall in love and there is some danger that I really can't say anything about. Oh and Have I read the previous 2?

She has this great soothing voice. Davis did Will's parts and I have not listened to him before, but he did a good job narrating too.

    2,5 stars. I really hoped I would enjoy this despite it having a selkie as main protagonist...I HATE selkies, mainly because the first one I’ve ever encountered (Toby’s early love interest from the October Daye serie) turned out to be such a bland and soppy character, it ruined the whole creature for me. So I was extra sad when I couldn’t overcome my own conundrum and enjoy this, especially because I was very much looking forward to read Sonja’s story. And while I thought her and Will’s romance was 2,5 stars.

And while I thought her and Will’s romance was pretty cute, the fact his nature was such an obstacle to their relationship made me extremely annoyed with the whole thing. At least the overarching plot progressed throughout the book and we got a few answers and new questions about what exactly is going on in Mystyc Bayou.

    I enjoyed this one more. Probably because it grabbed my attention a little more but also because of the whole pregnancy thing of a side character that suddenly breathed fire/lava was pretty entertaining and the whole leak of power in the town seem to get crazier and I'm here for it. The romance was fine enough and the guy shifted into something unusual. It reminded me of the name "dave" from that first book which I found ridiculous for a true dragon's name lol.

    This wasn't my favorite of the series but I still liked it and enjoyed the progression of the overall storyline. I wish that Will and Sonja had more time to develop their relationship. I feel like there was so much going on that they didn't get their due time. I'll continue with the series. It seems as though things are about to come to a head in Mystic Bayou.

    My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com. I’m really loving this series set in the fictional town of Mystic Bayou. I love reading (or well, listening) about different mythical creatures that you don’t see in many paranormal romance stories. In this one, we have a selkie. While I’m aware of the species, I’m not all that familiar with the details about them.

I’m really loving this series set in the fictional town of Mystic Bayou. I love reading (or well, listening) about different mythical creatures that you don’t see in many paranormal romance stories. In this one, we have a selkie. While I’m aware of the species, I’m not all that familiar with the details about them. I love how Molly Harper gives us a few different myths about selkies and then goes on to show us which version of the myths she decided to make “real”. As with most stories that I enjoy, it is the secondary characters that I really like and with this series, that hasn’t changed. The only big difference is that they were main characters in previous stories and I’m so glad that they continue to have larger roles in the later stores. Zed and Bael are just great. I love the two of them together. I hope we continue to see them in future books. The couple in this book are a lot of fun too. Sonja works for League for Interspecies Cooperation as director of the research center in Mystic Bayou. She’s one of those people that just makes things happen and gets the job done. If it weren’t for her, the offices would fall into chaos. She shows that even more when her boss ends up pregnant and is vomiting fire for her morning sickness. Dr. Will Camody was raised in Mystic Bayou, but left to become a doctor. He’s now ready to come back home and be the town’s only doctor. The people in the town will be able to tell their full concerns to Dr. Camody because he is like them. He’s the selkie. His brother has been in town and a bit of a recluse. I really liked his brother a lot too. I’m really enjoying this story, but also the overall series arc as we learn more and more about this rift that is causing issues and so many people who want to mess with it. I can’t wait to see where Harper goes next with this series. Narration It is no secret that I’m a huge Amanda Ronconi fan. I always stop to look at any book with her name listed as the narrator. I first learned of her narration by trying Molly Harper’s books. I think they are a great pair. I’m not as big of a fan of Jonathan Davis. He’s not bad, and I’m getting more used to him. One thing kinda drove me nuts with this story was that the two narrator’s volumes were different. I found myself changing the volume every time there was a switch in narrator. I still love this series and I still think that I enjoy listening more than I would enjoy reading. I do feel that the narrators do help bring the story to life. **I'd like to thank the publisher for providing me with a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    Love this series (it’s free on Audible) and it feels like a snack because the books are short . It’s a nice way to wait for her next big series. The narrators are the best, the bayou is an exciting place and the characters feel like the best kind of Neighbors. I love escaping to this world of scientists, shifters and a world that is changing peoples DNA.

    Another fun little Mystic Bayou romance. (view spoiler)[This definitely advances the larger overarching story as the plot thickens. Now the rift is way bigger, they have a strange ancient artifact to deal with, and a conspiracy from on high. Lots to look forward to. I was a little mystified that someone is obviously capable as Sonja was so unable to spot the bad guy. I figured it was probably him the moment he lied to her about who was behind the dodgy transactions. Also, I’d like to register my di Another fun little Mystic Bayou romance.

I get that part of her persona was that she stubbornly refuses to be affected by the rift, but leaving her as a boring human with no superpower except for extreme competence was a big disappointment. Where’s the fun in that? Now she’s just gonna get old while Will stays young, or at least younger.(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] I’m still enjoying this series. And this was a pretty good installment. (hide spoiler)]

    Selkies are a Girl’s Best Friend Mystic Bayou, Book 3 I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the series. The Characters: Sonja Fong: Will Comody : Bael, Jillian, Zed, Dani, Much of the town of Mystic Bayou The Story: I love Sonja and Will’s chemistry. They bicker a bit but you can tell it’s in love. They make a great addition to Mystic Bayou and I’m looking forward to seeing more of them. Oh and Will fits right in with Will and Bael and I love that even more.

    There is a new resident in Mystic Bayou and he's thrown Sonya right off her game. She is normally Jillian's rock with the most organizational skills and fear induced respect. But Will Camody brings out a different Sonya. The two get involved in the happenings at the rift. I really enjoyed Sonya's story. She gets put in a few difficult positions that her skills help her shine through. Seeing her build a relationship with Will, and even helping Will's brother out of his shell was fun.

There is an amazing surprise about one of the Mystic Bayou residents that kept me laughing throughout the book. Molly Harper knows how to sprinkle in the humor in the midst of serious problems. The narration for Selkies Are A Girl's Best Friend was spot on. I love the job Amanda Ronconi does with Harper's books and the smooth voice of Jonathan Davis just enhances the story. Definitely a fun audio that will draw you in and keep you wrapped up in the story.This review was originally posted on Rantings of a Reading Addict

    The Mystic Bayou series is getting more interesting with corruption being suspected at the League's highest level. The rift is still growing and mysteries are slowly being uncovered there. Characters from previous books are still present and their storylines are continuing. Although the "bad guy" in this book was easily figured out, it still was an enjoyable read for fans of Molly Harper. In the audible version one of my favorite narrators, Amanda Ronconi is still paired with Jonathan Davis, but The Mystic Bayou series is getting more interesting with corruption being suspected at the League's highest level.
