Publisher's Summary

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? 

For more Mystic Bayou stories, check out the series—available in Audible Escape. Please note this Audible Original will be included in Audible Escape on 7/5/19.

Hilarious and Cute!

Fast paced, giggle inducing and sweet! Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues was the perfectly little listen to escape reality with. I found myself laughing out loud more than once while I was listening to this as I worked. I mean, really though, who couldn’t love a listen that had you smiling and laughing while doing laundry? In all seriousness this really is an adorable little story.
Ingrid is equal parts wise and naive. With her age comes certain wisdom, but her sheltered life before moving to Mystic Bayou left her ignorant of quite a bit when it comes to social niceties. Extremely blunt and somewhat distrusting she’s quite the hard shell to crack. Particularly for Rob who is drawn to her the moment he lays eyes on her. Rob is a bit shy, slightly awkward and all kinds of nerdy hot. Between misunderstandings and the addition of other hilarious characters you’re sure to get your fill of sweet and funny with this one!
Amanda Ronconi does a fantastic job bringing Ingrid to life. Beautifully done accents and perfectly fitting exactly what I pictured Ingrid sounding like. Jonathan Davis doesn’t fail to deliver either when it comes to accents and making Rob sound adorably swoony.

An absolute gem!!!

Really, I've never read or listened to another Molly Harper book. I thought this one sounded adorable and just could not pass it up! I was right in my adorable assumption. Now I keep thinking I need to go back and listen to the other books in the series. I'm not one who generally listens to stories about paranormal happenings with mythical creatures but this quick little bite tickled my fanciful side. I haven't read or listened to the previous 2 books in the series but that did not take away from my pleasure of listening to this one! I recommend it over and over again!

The narrators were fabulous!! Amanda Ronconi was JUST what I expected for Ingrid. She sounds a bit aloft but as though she doesn't want to be. I'm seriously digging the accent, I just have a thing for these accents! Jonathan Davis is a perfect Rob. He's strong in voice and character but still sounds caring and sweet. They worked well together.

I enjoyed the cleanness of the storyline and the light romance. I almost feel as though it was a story about Ingrid as a nymph than it was about Ingrid and Rob. I think it actually made it more enjoyable for me. Really you can't go wrong with this quick and delightful listen!!

Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues

I didn't think I would like this as much as I did I got it because it was one of the free audible originals. I'm also not all that into love stories. I did like the addition of the ice cream shop. (I'm an ice cream addict)

Short, but delightful

Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues managed to convey a lot in a very short story. It was funny, there was ice cream, and the romance was believable. And there was ice cream.

Nice story

Well I was surprised at its lack of length, and it’s lack of a more in-depth plot. I enjoyed getting to know Ingrid’s character and Rob, but I just kept waiting for something more exciting to happen. How do you lead the last two with this? It’s a nice story though. A lovely romantic story.

Cute! A natural history of Tree Nymphs

Ever wonder how nymphs cope in this urbanized world? What happens to a tree nymph who loses her tree? And how do they find love? Be careful- the powers are awesome, and your neighbor with the bonsai might be a nymph!

romance delivered with feels and laughter

Ingrid Asher is the newest resident of Mystic Bayou and the opening scene to this tale was hilarious. Ingrid is a tree nymph. She is socially awkward and untrusting around humans, others and in particular, the League. She’s bought a farm, and a local business where she plans to open a creamery.

Rob Aspern, head of the League’s data science department is also Ingrid’s neighbor. Whenever he is around her he becomes socially inept and quite frankly it was hilarious. Ingrid who is suspicious of everyone made it more so by her reactions.

I loved watching the romance unfold as Harper gave us a mix of adorkable and awkward moments. Of course Jillian and Danica get involved. How could they not!

Talk of mouth watering ice cream flavors had me making a trip to the local ice cream shop. Then they had to go and mention pie. 🥧🍦😍

We learned a little more about Mystic Bayou and the tear/rift as Harper updated us on the town, previous couples, and more.

The conflict could have been resolved with communication but wasn’t dragged out and led to character growth, secrets, and tender moments. All of this added to the swoon and feels.

I love listening to this series on audio. The narrations have been stellar. It captures the snark and personalities of these characters. Amanda Ronconi and Jonathan Davis narrate the dual POV. These two are perfect together. They enhance the humor, oddities and characters.

Surprisingly engaging

The dialogue was realistic, well written and performed. I found the whole book interesting and even would like to hear more about both characters. Worth buying.

Bravo! Bravo !!

Charming Funny

Do you want a listen that is short but full of fantastical surprises?
Of course, there is just enough romantic spots to glue the plot together.
Do you like ice cream and fairies? Ice cream? Well to find out what ice cream and fairies could possibly have in common or why I just said that, then do yourself a favor and listen to this while having some ice cream.

Oh yes, this is one of the Audible Originals I selected this month. The price was definitely right totally and completely FREE! If you missed out on this as a free original with your membership it is rather inexpensive.

Just a bit uneventful

Nothing really happens. Yes, there is: Fall in love at first sight, fight, make up -but that is it.

Disappointing 3rd book

If you’re debating whether to buy this - it isn’t worth the money. Clearly a token 3rd book to round off the trilogy, but half the length of the other novels, and no plot line that integrates with the other storyline. Laugh out loud funny at times, but ended right in the middle where the other books were just kicking off!

Story line lacking

I've enjoyed the Mystic Bayou series, love the narrators, and they were good in this, but they struggled against the truly inferior story line. Undeveloped characters and a rushed story, not even the wonderful quirkiness of the town could dig this one out.
