Always Be My Banshee by Molly Harper
Publisher’s Description: 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?
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*

This audio book is an Audible exclusive. You won’t find it anywhere else. If you like the Mystic Bayou series, then you’ll be glad to know there has been an addition to the family.
I have to be a bit critical here. I’m sorry, but I feel like the story wasn’t as good as the other three prior books. I don’t recall the reason the Banshee was brought in to begin with as it wasn’t explained. The romance was sort of instant and there wasn’t much substance to it like between Zed and Danni or Jillian and Bael. It just kind of happened. I guess I was expecting a bit more depth to the characters.
Here’s the story: Cordi gets picked up in the airport by Brenden. Cordi has been brought in to decipher the black box that was found in the rift. I assume that Brenden was brought in to ground her, though it was never mentioned. She has a bad reaction. Days go by. Brenden kind of makes a move. Then Cordi’s ex is brought in to take over the directorship of the project from Jillian due to her maternity leave. He’s quite the wet noodle. No personality. Then the BIG head guy comes down and chews Cordi for not working. Push comes to shove, the bad guy makes the move, Brendon and Zed atop of Bael save Cordi. The black box is handled and everything turns out. There is, of course, more to it than that, but not a whole lot – at least I don’t feel there is. It feels like the editor edited the crap out of the book and left only bare bones. I was underwhelmed.
