Publisher’s Description:  A hilarious new standalone novella brimming with otherworldly charm from the reigning queen of paranormal romantic comedy Molly Harper!

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?

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*


Nervous Nellie says…

I’ve always heard of nymphs but I’ve never actually read a story about one.  I have been following the story as it unfolds in Mystic Bayou as it chronicles the mysteries within.

This was a short story and standalone, so there were really no advancements to the Mystic Bayou mysteries.  What this story line revealed was a newcomer to the Bayou.  She was a tree nymph who could command the plants and trees.

I can’t say with absolute honesty that I loved this story.  It felt like huge chunks were cut out and edited to hook the sentences together.  I guess what I’m trying to say was that it was ok.  It didn’t really add to the Mystic Bayou mysteries since the following book only mentions Ingrid as the ice cream shop owner, but come to think of it, none of the matched couples make an appearance unless it’s Zed and Danni or Bael and Jillian.

I’m having a tough time rating this book.  Maybe a 3 and 5/8.
