Audiobook Review: Selkies are a Girl’s Best Friend (Mystic Bayou, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Selkies are a Girl’s Best Friend by Molly Harper

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sonja Fong isn’t afraid of a little chaos. As director of the league’s research center in Mystic Bayou, a tiny town in Louisiana that’s home to supernatural creatures and humans alike, she’s responsible for making sure things run smoothly. It’s not an easy task when her daily memos include lines like, “new equipment is needed because the old equipment was destroyed by a temper tantrum involving dragonfire.”

He job puts her in the path of Dr. Will Camody, a mysterious shifter who’s returned to Mystic Bayou after a long absence only to find that he’s now considered an outsider. To make matters worse, the rift – a tear in the fabric of the universe that is leaking supernatural energy into the bayou – is unraveling at an alarming rate. Now Sonja and Will must team up to fix the rift and save Mystic Bayou from certain disaster, all while their own romance is heating up. Can they have a future together while the whole world is falling apart?

The heroine: Sonja Fong – best friend to Jillian from How to Date Your Dragon. Sonia works as the Director of the Mystic Bayou office of the International League for Interspecies Cooperation. Sonia is the kind of person that has contacts everywhere and can get things done (sort of like a corporate fixer).

The Hero: Dr. Will Camody – a very well dressed and handsome man, who rubs Sonja wrong way from the start and vice versa. He is a medical doctor who has worked for the League in an outreach capacity as a doctor to other supernatural beings and has come home to Mystic Bayou to be the new town doctor.

The Story: Sonja is not too happy about having to work closely with Will after their first meeting didn’t go well, due in part to her mistaken assumptions about him. However, she is outrageously attracted to him despite thinking he is a condescending jerk.

Like the rest of the books in this series, this was told in dual points of view with dual narration by Amanda Ronconi and Jonathon Davis. I usually don’t like dual narration where the male narrator reads the chapters told from the Hero’s POV and the female narrator reads the chapters in the female POV. I like duet narration better where the male reads all the male parts and female reads all the female parts. However, with these two narrators it doesn’t bother me when the female narrator has to do some male lines and vice versa because these two have so many voices and accents that it is easy to distinguish who is talking at any point.

I had a bit more trouble getting in to this story than the prior ones, I am not sure if it was because I was overtired yesterday or if it was something in the story. I did realize that this one was every bit as charming and whimsical as the rest of the series. Will is a Selkie Shifter (seal shifter), and I have not read about these before so that was different.
