The latest Mystic Bayou novel from Audie Award-nominated author Molly Harper will have you swooning with passion and wailing with laughter!
Cordelia Canton is on a top-secret assignment: travel to Mystic Bayou and use her powers as a touch-know psychic to learn more about the mysterious artifact that's been pulled from the rift site. She's partnered with Brendan O'Connor, a rare male banshee whose tall, dark, and broody good looks are a major distraction. Before long, it becomes clear that the artifact they're studying is sentient - and brimming with supernatural power. Can they harness its magic in time to stop the secret forces conspiring to steal it?

It has been a while since I listened to the previous Mystic Bayou story. It was nice to be back into the small town of paranormal creatures. In this story, we have Brendan O’Connor, a rare male banshee and Cordelia Canton, a touch psychic who gets memories from stuff she touches. They come together to work on the weird artifact that was pulled from the rift.
This is a fun, light-hearted, comfort read, or well listen. If you’ve never listened/read to Molly Harper, she is very funny and her characters are so lovable. She brings a lot of snark and pop culture references. This book was no different. This series does have a bit of a formulaic feel, but it is still a fun escape.
This book did feel like it might be the last book in the series, since there was a bit of a conclusion, but I see there is an audiobook WHICH came out in January. So, I guess not. This is a series through Audible, so you can’t get it from other places and it is even a few months before it is available as an ebook. I’ll look forward to grabbing the next book (I still have a novella story to listen to as well).
I’m a HUGE Amanda Ronconi fan. I listened to my first Molly Harper book and I can’t even imagine reading one of her books and not listening. She really brings out the characters’ personalities. She’s also great at including the snark Harper puts in her stories.
I had not listened to Jonathan Davis before this series. I had a really hard time with the first book, but I think it has gotten more cohesive. I don’t think his narration is bad, it just doesn’t stand up with Amanda Ronconi, in my opinion. I’m always more interested in the female POVs in this series, and I think it might have something to with the narration. I do think that if I listened to him in a different series where he was the only narrator, I would like him more. I think I just struggle with anyone else performing Molly Harper stories.

I really need to start this series. Especially now since it’s in Audible+
It is a fun series.
The premise for this book sounds like a good one. Thanks for letting us know about this one. It sounds like a book that I might like.
I always enjoy Molly Harper’s stories! 🙂
Glad this latest was a fun one. I dropped off in the series, but I’ll get back to it at some point.
I’m so glad you’re enjoying this series. It sounds great!
It is a fun, light-hearted series. Always a good pick-me-up.
I listened to this when it first came out. I just read my review from back then. I gave it 3.75 stars and it wasn’t a favorite for me. I said the same thing you did that it felt like it was ending. But we are wrong as you know. I just got the new one. I love Amanda Ronconi and Molly Harper.
Amanda Ronconi and Molly Harper never fail me. I love their work together.
I feel like that one came out forever ago. There’s been 2 or 3 since that one. I’ve not listened to the most recent one, but based on the one before… she’s starting a new story arc. This series is a lot of fun.
Yeah, I’ve gotten so far behind (on several series). Once daylight is longer, where I can get more walks in, I’m hoping to pick up more audiobooks and get caught up on them.
I really need to read more of Molly Harper’s work. This sounds like something that I would like.
I really love her work, though I’ve only read the paranormal stuff. I keep saying I’m going to try the contemporary romances she’s written, but just haven’t gotten around to them.
I am loving this series and just finished the last one. So glad you are catching up.
I’m glad I’m getting caught up too. I’ve gotten so far behind on so many series.
Great review, Melanie💜 I hadn’t heard of this series but have collected lots of Harper’s books and everyone seems to rave about Ronconi! One day…
You should check them out. I think most are included with a Audible membership.
Molly Harper’s stories are fun and always make me laugh, too. Love Amanda Ronconi’s performance with her stories. It’s been a while since I listened/read of one of Harper’s but I’ll keep this one in mind seeing as it comes with the Audible membership.
You really should check them out. They are a lot of fun.
