This was really nice, I liked the narration for most part as well!
Ingrid Asher is the newest addition to the Mystic Bayou, she’s coming there to open her ice-cream/creamery shop. Ingrid is far from her home, where the other tree nymphs live due to her past with a human. She has spend the better part of her unnatural life in a city which had little place for supernatural and now is finally moving to where she can be herself in the small town of mystic bayou with other magical creatures and open space.
Rob Aspern who is the head of the League data science department hasn’t had a particularly good time in the mystic bayou with what the sheriff and the mayor being on his case.
Rob and Ingrid don’t have the ‘best’ of the first meetings. Not to mention Ingrid is not interested in humans or socialising of any kind. I liked them together, they were sweet and cute. However, there wasn’t much of romance or spend time together between Rob and Ingrid so while I found it sweet, I wanted more of it. It felt like there was more of Rob with his friends and Ingrid with hers scenes, then of them together so there wasn’t much time spend on them, building/developing their relationship which considering its a novella meant there wasn’t much space to begin with.
Overall, this does have the usual Molly Harper humour, along with sweetness and some drama to make a good light listen.

Rating ~ 3.75 stars avg for narration and the story.
I was super excited to see that Sonja Fong was getting her own book. She’s the best friend of Jillian from the first book in the series How to Date your Dragon. She like Jillian is a part of League, she’s the director of league’s research center in Mystic Bayou. Her parents are also part of the league, with their super secret assignments and what not which is why Sonja is pretty close to Jillian who is like a sister to her. She’s also completely human.
Dr Will Camody, once a resident of mystic bayou now considered an outsider is back into town to open his clinic and return to the water/selkie ways of the Bayou. His return is made complicated by the fact that he getting treated like a newcomer.
Sonja and Will have have a very interesting first meeting, deciding to make ‘friends’ Sonja tries to help out Will with the hospital renovation and the rest is history…
This had the usual Molly Harper humour, along with some sweet romance and awesome friends and some angst/conflict along with magical mayhem to make things interesting. We also get some cameos from our favourite citizens of mystic bayou and how things have been with them.
Quibbles: While I understood Will’s behaviour, his over reaction to that particular incident made me really annoyed.
Overall, a pretty good edition to the series, looking forward to more!
