Sleeping with the Fishes: review

( 1st in the series)
by MaryJanice Davidson

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.

If you are looking for a quick and a funny read, look no more! This book will give you both of those things, but not too much more. The story line is fantastic, but it needed to be hammered out more, it just didn't flow. The characters have such potential if given the time to blossom. I did love Fred's care free attitiude, refreshing!

and it falls into these reading challenges...

I liked MJD's mermaid trilogy too. The only books of hers I enjoyed besides her Undead Series, which are my absolute fave.

Thanks for the review! It sounds like a fast, fun read. A cranky mermaid with blue hair....too funny!
