Book 1, Greenwood Cove:
Sunny is challenged by a childhood friend to discover the cause behind damage done to docks along Lake Burton's Greenwood Cove, and she's never one to resist a challenge when monsters are involved. 

Book 2, The Deep Wood:
Sunny’s search for a monster terrorizing the county leads her into a past she never knew, and a secret that changes everything. 

Book 3, Cemetery Hill:
After her uncle is framed for murder, Sunny must figure out who, or what, really killed his ex-wife before someone else falls victim to a vicious monster.

Not Bad

Not bad but not wonderful either, Book 1 was especially slow paced and I think that they may have seemed slower paced than they really are because of the constant Southern backwoods drawl. It wasn't that the narration was bad but I just found that it really grated.

There are the elements of a good urban fantasy story and I think it definitely improves in Books 2 and 3. However I do have reservations. I found Sunshine's character annoying, she was really quite whiny, and written in the 1st person that comes across very strongly. There was a constant internal monologue about what a horrible person she was, character flaws out the wazoo, how everyone puts her down and she totally buys into that, constant references to her sainted Henry and her attitude toward men and sex was faintly ridiculous. So the ongoing love interest really doesn't work, in either direction because of her ongoing attitude and his somewhat insane jealousy. Plus there seem to be a couple of sub-plots that never really go anywhere, although maybe there's an intention to deal with that in the future.

So, I would really recommend listening to the audio sample to see if you can tolerate the narration.

2.5 stars - dull, and no Jane Yellowrock

This was so incredibly dull. I love Jane Yellowrock so thought I’d give this book a go, but although there are many parallels this is nowhere near the same type of story. It sounds harsh, but for starters the heroine is just too simple minded. The world she lives in is very simple too. The stories just plodded along, and you’d get a little action at the end. However, there were so many things that could have been amazing if the author had delved a little deeper. I found myself so bored that I nearly turned it off a few times, but instead browsed for my next read whilst listening to it instead. They talk of supernatural stuff but barely touch on it, and the heroine just sort of blunders into situations and doesn’t plan anything. Most of the story is just her doing everyday boring stuff. Then she’ll spend ages researching books for some answers. Each story was the same in that respect. I found the relationship development frustrating too, with talking of their history really limited in detail, and the building trust and her worries really tiresome. This was nearly two stars, but there was promise if it had more work, so I’ll round it up.

Perfect new series!

I am not a big review writer and I am writing this review after almost a month after listening to it. I simply had to come back and say- it stuck with me! More often than not, I forget if I read/listened to something and I have to read a blurb to remind myself. But that is definitely not case with Sunshine Walkingstick!
But to start from the beginning: book one is probably weakest in the series due to couple of reasons. One being it starts a bit slow, and it takes time to get to know all characters, get the sense of surroundings etc. Second one is the language use. As a non-native English speaker I would have probably given up on the book, if I had read it. But the narrator is perfectly chosen, as she really brings Sunshine to life and makes her sound, after a while, like she is just using a different accent.
Book two is already better with action, is not slow and we already know and root for some characters.
Book three is fantastic!
Not all questions are resolved and hopefully there will be more books in the upcoming months.I really want to know what is that critter and happened with Henry's ghost.
I recommend this to Jane Yellowrock fans, Mercy Thompson and similar. With strong female lead, good overarching storyline, once you pass the language barrier, and a slower first book, you will love it!

Narration was great, Sunshine was worth credit

I have both Audible and Kindle. The narrator does such a great job with the cadence, inflection and pacing. I found myself going back to listen to the parts I read. I found the accent to be genuine and was able to relax into the books. The books themselves have dark storylines with friendship and family consistent through all. Sunshine is a very likeable character. She is strong, self reliant and flawed. She is her own worst critic. The building relationship with Riley is believable.
I enjoyed all three books. I feel this was worth my credit. I am happy to find both the author and narrator.

Old Country

I loved the storytelling caught myself laughing which was not good as husband wasn't listing had ear Phone as he tried to sleep. If you love perfect tremor not a book for you but the reader nailed the old fashioned backwoods well.hah spooks and panters old Cherokee medicine women. But not scary if you are looking for a scary book. PS misspell panthers on purpose that's how it's said in book . Oh yea this book was a free listen for a honest option and after Facebook from the age of 11 if I don't like on don't even finish it

Enjoyable series

Sunshine Walkingstick hunts the monsters others dont quite believe in. She has a trsgic past and is slow to trust that someone like Riley could truly care for her.

Oh my sweet Sunshine

I wish she would just go ahead and give in to Riley already!
Each story is great. I miss Sunshine already and want more of her endearing sweet personality.
Narration by Rebecca Winder was great. I was scared I wouldn’t be able to handle the accent but I ended up loving it. She did a great job switching it up between characters.
I can’t wait for more in this series.

Not What You Expect... So Much Better

This is definitely not my normal genre. Still, this story drew me in and kept asking for more. The narrator brought this to life in amazing ways but the story being told is just so real.

This one is a must listen and a three in one deal to boot. Can't go wrong here.

Not for me

Sunshine Walkingstick Omnibus One Books 1, 2, and 3 wasn't very interesting for me. It might be interesting for someone else.

Good urban fantasy

This is a pretty good urban fantasy series. 3 for 1 with this audiobook is a great deal by itself. I really like the southern/mountain feel and narration for this series. Good story and good listen.
