Publisher's Summary

Queen of paranormal romantic comedy Molly Harper delivers love and laughter in this magnificent series finale - available in audio first! 

Eva Boudreaux keeps the truth about her life before arriving in Mystic Bayou a carefully guarded secret, flying under the radar as a talented boat mechanic. In the swampy little town filled with powerful supernatural beings, Eva never expected to strike up a charged flirtation with one of the Bayou’s human residents. 

Alex Lancaster is far too polished for Eva’s taste - not to mention the danger that comes with his high-ranking position in the League, which could expose her secrets. Trouble is, she can’t resist his disarming sense of humor or the chemistry that crackles to life whenever he’s near. Will Alex be able to handle a woman like her? Or will her difficult past keep them apart? 

Either way, they’ll need to join forces to solve one final mystery in Mystic Bayou. The fate of the town - and their hearts - depends upon it.

Dear Listener,

How does it feel to close the final chapter on Mystic Bayou?
"When I started the Mystic Bayou series, my Audible editor told me I could write about any supernatural creature I chose in whatever setting I wanted. That is a dangerous thing to tell a writer. I fell into a serious research rabbit hole and came out with the citizens of Mystic Bayou. This strange, complex, and wonderful group of fictional people got me through a cross-country move, relative isolation in a new hometown, and a pandemic. While it’s difficult to say goodbye, I hope I’ve left each of them happy ever after.
The response to these stories has been so heartwarming. To clear up a few commonly asked questions: No, this town isn't based on a real place. No, sadly, Zed isn’t based on a real person. (Couldn’t we all use a Zed in our lives?) And no, I cannot provide a recipe for chocolate rhubarb pie. I threw together two random ingredients I thought would make a really strange dessert. And it still sounds super weird, at least to me.
I hope this final entry in the Mystic Bayou series is as satisfying and joyful to listen to as it was for me to write. I hope I brought you laughter, fun, and a little less loneliness. I hope my longtime narrator Amanda Ronconi never gets tired of my shenanigans, because none of this would be possible without her." – Molly Harper, writer of A Farewell to Charms

Amazing

Its an amazing story as always Molly Harper never disappoints. However, I'm really sad that its the last book in the series. I have loved all of these books. The combination of Molly Harper's story with Jonathan Davis and Amanda Ronconi narrating has been utter book nerd perfection.

Another great book

Another great book I love this series it brings out all kinds of emotions laughing one minute and teary eyed the next I am a little frustrated with the ending it's a little bit of a cliff hanger so I'm hoping there is still more to come.

I love this series!

Making me cry, laugh and cry in a 30 minute window is more than I could ever hope for in a book. These characters are fun and heartwarming. Escape from a world gone mad...

A Wonderful End to One of my Favorites

I've loved every book in the Mystic Bayou series and it is so bittersweet that this is the last installment. I feel like I could listen to stories about this quirky town forever but I'm so happy it's ending on a happy, optimistic note and clearly on Molly Harper's terms. (If she ever decides to reopen it, tho, I will give her all my money.)

Eva is an interesting character and her background was well done in my opinion. I loved that the book didn't shy away from making her ballsy or play down her strength to make Alex seem more masculine, and the fact that he found it hot was all the better. As always, Amanda Ronconi and Jonathan Davis gave fantastic performances and I will miss this series dearly and revisit the town through re-listens often.

Really great series

I will miss these stories. A great ending to a superb series that ties things up nicely. I loved Eva such a great character, liked Alex, thoroughly enjoyed their relationship. The narration is as always perfect, matching the characters perfectly. A wonder series that I hope the author will revisit in the future.

Not her best work

The story was a bit saccharine sweet and predictable but it was a fun listen nonetheless and a way to pass the time.

Decent but somewhat average.

A solid ending, all is wrapped up nicely. Some good new elements. The main couple's relationship dynamic was a pleasant change, with the female being the far physically stronger and more capable one. There was less drama and fear as the characters are much more risk savvy. So in a way the story was more sedate.
A dash more diversity would've been appreciated. It's not a super attention grabbing story, nor the best in this series. But is overall an enjoyable listen and a treasured opportunity to spend one last time in the bayou.

molly harper your gold!

I've listened to all the other mystic bayou books and absolutely loved them. The wit, sarcasm and humour of molly harper's writing is pure belly laughing, romantic and suspenseful. I so enjoyed this series and didn't even know this book was out till I stumbled on to it.
It was fabulous to hear all the characters and their antics once again. Loved Eva's story and who she turned out to be and it was great to hear Alex getting his tale as well. The way Molly wrote their relationship together was funny as.... I couldn't stop laughing at the contrast.
I felt trepidation in one of the chapters and I hoped it wasn't paralleling with the title....
The quirky dialogue from all the characters near the end was just brilliant.
Zed is still my favourite...Molly just writes him to perfection.
The storyline rounded out nicely with questions answered.
Dare I hope there is another book? But we've run out of characters methinks.?????
Amanda and Jonathan are just perfect with their narration...in all the books....am going to swamp myself in Molly's vampire series, I just can't pass on her writing.
