I’ve been wanting to read this series and what better way to discover more about the characters than to read this collection.

Ivy Granger, a psychic detective with some Fae in her blood line, is one tough lady, and that’s without special training and weapons. She’s smart, snarky, and you don’t want to be on her bad side. And if she doesn’t set you straight the first attempt, her friend and sidekick, Jinx, will take out the trash.

These short stories were just what I needed to get me started on the

If you love Ivy and Jinx you'll love these sneak peek into their world. Reading some of the series would be helpful when delving into these short stories but not totally necessary to enjoy the snippets.

24 and never even been...?!?
It's got to be tough living with Psychometry.
Helpful for being a PI though. Having second sight certainly, helps.
Especially if you are the Only PI in town. And Harborsmouth has enough trouble to keep a few dozen PIs busy.
The downside being that nearly all of the clients walking through Ivy Granger's door would be terminal to "Only Human" detectives, but their cases would be the stuff to easily drive a normal insane.

These are cases that all but drip danger. E.J. Steven

( Tales From Harborsmouth is a collection of all the novellas that have been written about Ivy Granger, psychic detective. And while I love the full length books, her novellas are entertaining and usually add more to her overall story. It’s a good day when I get a new book or story about Ivy.

I love when author bundles together several novellas from an universe for me it gives an useful additional insight into the series and i'm happy this one is doing it and more. Now some of the novellas can be read in any order, always better to read a series in order novellas included but in this case some are prequel and others gives enough information to satisfy a new reader w
This anthology does a great job showcasing various denizens and their activities in Harborsmouth. EJ has a remarkable talent to write stories that capture the multiple moods and dispositions of a menagerie of magical creatures in a distinctively engaging way.

In this story Ivy and Jinx investigate a haunted house. There are some odd twists and strange encounters in this spooky tale. I enjoyed it and thought it was a great launching off point for this book.

Yet again I have got extremely lucky and managed to find a new series that I can add to my ever-expanding To-Read list. If, like me, you are a fan of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files and Kim Harrison’s Hollows series then you will definitely enjoy Ivy Granger’s adventures.

The characters, style, setting and plot are in the same vein, but just as Harry Dresden and Rachel Morgan are distinct, so is Ivy. Her powers involve getting visions, which aid her in investigating and solving crimes, rather than be

Nice and quick read full of suspenseful short stories that keep you engaged from the beginning to the end.
Frostbite was a scary, nearly horror tale about a desperate solution one desperate mom carried out for her children... and then came to Ivy to ask her for help.
Blood and mistletoe brought up a powerful faerie mistress who went insane with loss and called upon the darkest powers to finish a rite and summon him from death. Murders, no clues, and constant fear are present here, the mood lighte

Tales from Harborsmouth is a wonderful collection of novellas within the world of Ivy Granger. If this is your first experience in Ivy's world - welcome! I hope you enjoyed all of the stories in the collection and they have piqued your interest in the urban fantasy series by E.J. Stevens. You won't be disappointed. If you're familiar with the series - isn't this series great!? I've read everything in the Ivy Granger, Psychic Detective series and love how they just keep evolving.

Tales From Harborsmouth is a collection of short stories that fall between the regular full length books. They are like little side trips of Ivy and friends doing what they do best. This was a quick, fun read and I really enjoy Ivy and her "can do" attitude and snarky sense of humor.

Side note: Thrill On Joysen Hill (Ivy Granger 5.5) has a couple of spoilers in it if you haven't already read the previous books in the series.

For those who want to know: There is some language and violence (but not

This was a fun book to read. It is made up of a few short stories that go with the Harborsmouth books.
I enjoyed reading these Ivy Granger is a great character and there is so much different paranormal it keeps you going. Now to go and read the other books by E.J Stevens.

These enchanting tales are a delightful introduction the world of Ivy Granger, psychic detective. Ivy is prepared to battle vampires, daemons or fae as she protects our world from the supernatural. She is assisted by the strangest group of friends, to solve the deadly problems she faces. I look forward to more adventures as she grows into her halfling powers, for Ms. Stevens brings her stories to life with strong characters, unique perspectives and eerie settings.

An interesting insight to this amazing world with really fascinating characters!
My only criticism is that some of the stories could have been more fully developed - but I understand that they're supposed to be short. Nice to have them as a collection all together.

I really liked this collection of short stories and novella that introduced me to the enjoyable and whimsical characters that make up the Psychic Detective world. It was a quick and fun read. The group of 4 short stories at the end telling one incident from each of the character's viewpoints was one of the highlights for me. It was easy to see how the author keyed in on specific details to make each of their stories unique to the each of them. The last story was just plain entertainment and icin ...more

Four separate Ivy Granger stories

First story about a house, not only haunted, but in need of help to move on.

Second story about a necromancer fairy who has lost her mind and the problems she causes.

Third story with four different viewpoints about a bar run by Pick for the depraved.

Fourth story you get to meet the Car Lord Sithe, who is taking Hob the kitchen brownie from Kate the Witch's house, Marvin the teenage Bridge Troll and Sparky the demon kid, to keep them out of trouble while Ivy and Ji

Stand aside Anita Blake - you have competition

Loved it! A mix of Stephanie Plum and Anita Blake. Kept you reading throughout just to see how she would survive. Although these are short stories, the best thing is that they tend to follow one to the other and thereby giving you a sense of consistency. A really terrific read recommended for all who love Fantasy with strong female leads. Ones who aren't afraid to act first and question later.
I received a free copy of this book for a honest review.

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this book.
I have to say that I only read the first story in the book then stopped, not because I didn't enjoy it but because I loved it I had to go get book one so that I could read them in order.
I have since read book one Shadow Sight and the second of the short stories.
Now of to buy the second book, once I've read that I will go back to Tales from the Harboursmouth to read the next story and so on.

Any opinions are honest and and my own.

Unusual, interesting, great collection

I loved this little collection!!
It's rare for my favorites to write the same scene from the different views of all the people and Fae involved. She's really captured the characters and feeling of this crazy city. I recommend reading this after the third book 😊

This is my first taste of Ivy & Jinx and I promise it will not be the last. Anyone that has read my reviews before knows that I absolutely love demons & magic. This has both in spades. That Jinx is one feisty lady. Another author added to my must read list. Read this in 2 days. Very highly recommended must read.

A well-written story about Psychic Detective Ivy Granger and her friends. They encounter Vampires, Fey characters as in Seelie and also Unseelie fairies, Demons, Witches and the worst of them all Puck. I really enjoyed the way this story was done. Good storyline and lots of humor in it too.

This is one of the few series in which the short stories are excellent. I recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys the Ivy Granger books. If you haven’t read the books, you will probably be a bit lost.
