Fred is not your ordinary mermaid. She's not blonde. She's not buxom. And she's definitely not perky. In fact, Fred can be downright cranky. And it doesn't help matters that her hair is blue.
While volunteering at the New England Aquarium, Fred learns that there are weird levels of toxins in the local seawater. A gorgeous marine biologist wants her help investigating. So does her merperson ruler, the High Prince of the Black Sea. You'd think it would be easy for a mermaid to get to the bottom of things. Think again.
Fun book. Reminded me of Davidson's Alaskan Royal Family series. Lighthearted most of the time, a cute love story, a steamy sex scene (one and not even involving the man character) and a sort of wrap-up. A fun, distracting read for a icky day. Davidson is definitely a go-to author of light breezy entertaining reads.
There's not a whole lot to say about the book, but I did enjoy it. Of course there are two more books in this series. And I have both from the library. So, guess what I'm reading next? Yep, next up is Swimming without a Net.
