Summary

Detective Stratton Bright is a man with many secrets. He came to Grimm Cove on the hunt for monsters created by a madman. Not only is he a Fae who is duty bound by birth to protect those who cannot protect themselves, he’s got a personal stake in the matter. Now, after years with no leads, the monsters have resurfaced at the same time a new arrival comes to town—a woman Stratton finds himself oddly drawn to. Is it just a coincidence, or are the events related? And if so, what could the monsters possibly want with her?

Really good

Detective Bright is a fae who also is a police detective in Grimm Cove.
Astria has a past and a family that she would rather not associate with. However these fate has a way of drawing these two characters back together in Grimm Cove.
A tale spanning a lifetime but beautifully told. A gem to listen to.

I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

My Favourite So Far

I loved this instalment of the Grimm Cove series. This is my favourite of the series so far. It’s so entertaining and funny bringing together old characters (I want a friend like Marcy) and new ones, such as Torid, Astria’s protector and friend! the narration was excellent. I just love this series and am looking forward to the next one.

Amazing

This series continues to amaze! I love the people of Grimm Cove; they are a hoot. Stratton & Astria are amazing, and so it their story. I really enjoyed the plot. Even though it definitely has a noticeable "theme" running throughout, I thought it was unique & interesting. Be warned this is a long one and hard to put down. I look forward to our next visit to Grimm Cove.

LOVE THIS BOOK!

Holy crud on a cracker! This series just keeps getting better. The first trio sets up the series then book 4 introduces what I want to call "the next wave". I was glued to this book and didn't want it to end. Semi spoiler... the ending sets up for book 5. I failed to say that I love this book! Yup, I have re read parts of it multiple times already. Stratton is more than he appears and no one is quite sure what he is. He was called to Grimm Cove, and he was there years before. Astria returns to Grimm Cove in order to hopefully put an end to everything that haunts her. Little does she know this is just the beginning and not everything is as it seems. Stratton and Astria met when she was a young child, then again later in life. Neither realized who the other was to them.... fast forward many many years. Both have grown and it has been over 35 years since they first met. This book brings them back together and solves part of a mystery but what is next?

Ok, so yes I read this book before listening to it. I picked up on pieces I missed while reading which just made me love this book even more! The narration was awesome!

A return trip to Grimm Cove leads to love.

Detective Stratton Bright is a Nightshade Hunter which is a combination of a federal agent and detective with magical powers. He does everything from protecting innocents and looking over a family who had made trouble for centuries. Stratton has been in Grimm Cove for the last several years taking a break from his Hunter duties. Astria Frankenstein “Franks” has been on the run for her life since she was a young girl. She has learned to fight the demons that have been after her for years. Astria is drawn back to Grimm Cove after spending her college years there twenty years ago. Stratton and Astria will be thrown together when demons start killing residents. The new woman in town catches the eye of the last person she wants to a police detective, but their attraction is too strong resist. As Astria and Stratton try to figure out what is happening between them and in Grimm Cove, they’ll find it just maybe Starry With a Chance of Nightshade kind of experience.

Starry With a Chance of Nightshade by Mandy M Roth is the fourth book in her Grimm Cove series. It takes two people with magical powers and brings them into danger and an irresistible attraction. A man whose life is turned upside down when the newest resident catches his eye. As he tries to remember where he might have seen her before. A woman on the run is pulled back to the town where she spent her college years. She’s facing down her past demons. He’s taking a long sabbatical from fighting demons. Starry With a Chance of Nightshade has danger, suspense, undeniable attraction that just may lead to forever. Characters that are funny, meddling and not what you seem. Lives are forever changed, and secrets are revealed. A man and woman whose lives intersected in the past will finally be brought together as the find their way through the danger trying to keep the other safe. Mandy M Roth’s next book in the Grimm Cove Starry With a Chance of Nightshade is funny, suspenseful and keeps the reader entertained as you read your way through the book.

This reader looks forward to learning if a secondary character will finally find what he’s been looking for over the years. Mandy M Roth as always has kept this reader entertained and am looking forward to the next book in the Grimm Cove series and any other books to come.

A great telling of the story that will keep the listener wanting to come back for more. Characters have their own voice and inflections with some humor. Listeners are engaged in the story, and it will go by fast as you get in grossed in the community of Grimm Cove.

Stars in my eyes

Another installment of Grimm Cove brings new characters and an added charm of all our our favorites. Astria is running from her family legacy and Bright is on the hunt. They don’t realize how intertwined they are. This book covers decades and brings elements of gothic literature to life. There is sass, conflict and a dash of crazy that will have you laughing and nail biting at the same time! While their story is complete Roth leaves some loose ends that leave you jonesing for the next book! Narrator does wonderful and makes each character it’s own and give each amazing amounts of life.

Slow burn romance, PWF

At last! I was finally able to revisit Grimm Cove!! This time we get to meet Astria and get Stratton's story!! The story follows Astria along three different timelines. I really enjoyed where the author landed on Astria's age. For me this was a slow burn romance with a bit of angst. You will understand, when you grab this book. I loved Torid! He's a goblin/dog and he belongs to Astria and he made me laugh at his antics. It was nice to see most of the gang of Grimm Cove.
The narrator, Allyson Voller did a great job with providing unique voices for each character. She used a variety of tones and inflections that elevated the story.
If you enjoy reading paranormal romance then this book is for you! Especially if you enjoy when the heroine is over 40+.

Absolutely riveting

I love this series so much. Each story is unique and fun and full of mystery, mayhem and romance. Stanton and Astria are an amazing couple I love their history and how they always seem to find each other. I am anxiously awaiting more.

Love This Series

Grimm Cove may be a respite for supers, but it is also a hotbed for monsters -again. This outing is Stratton's story, and it is quite the adventure. Who knew Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker wrote fictionalized versions of true events. I did find Marcy a bit extreme in this book, even for her. Perhaps cutting back on the ditz factor would add to rather than detract from the story. Even so, I enjoyed the book and look forward to the next.

Freaking Fantastic!!!!

I honestly believe that Starry With a Chance of Nightshade by Mandy M Roth is my very favorite in this series to date. Lover the character is Astria right from the beginning and this story brought so many of the town's characters together! None were better than Torid and Marcy. These two were the best in my opinion. And quite frankly, Allyson Volker brought every One to life. She did a miraculous job narrating this book. it's the best, and can't wait for the next one!!! ❤❤❤

DON'T MISS THIS AWESOME STORY.

I loved the narrator. She brought life to all the characters. Having read the book I wondered how the audio would sound. Great really great. Loved it from the beginning.

Stratton & Astria & so many more

So much going on and not much to tell without spoilers. I will say I freakin' loved it!

Stratton's job and many powers were to protect beings-- humans plus-- from the bad supernaturals. Doing his job the best he could put him in many places, with many people, including a woman he can't resist. Eventually, he ends up in Grimm Cove with "people" she knows and new friends. There are lots of secrets to be revealed, loves to match up, friends to find again, dangers to overcome, and loves to find--oh, yeah, and lots of steam.

This is an amazing audio with unforgettable characters and a storyline that reaches into literary history and more. DON'T MISS THIS AWESOME STORY.
