Book Description

You never know what hides beneath the sea's surface until you take the DIVE...

DEEPER by Christine DePetrillo
Crystal Bawle wants to sleep, but every time she closes her eyes, the drowning nightmare seizes her. Water is everywhere, and she is swallowed. That deep blue ocean wants her, and she’s getting too tired to fight.

Doctor Ray Taimen has spent too much time on land, but he can’t let his people down. His messages of marine health need to be spread to protect his kin and home. There’s no time for distractions, especially from an exhausted human.

When Ray falls ill, can Crystal reach deep enough to save him?

Just so you know, all those stories about mermaids being perky and adorable like nautical cheerleaders are crap.

Just ask Evelyn "Evie” (rhymes with heavy) McFagan, alcohol-fueled funeral director, and all-around lousy mother. In a coastal New England playground, some crazy new chick, named Nomia just spoke to Evie telepathically…or did Evie put a little “something-something” in her coffee again?

Or maybe this time, despite her husband’s insistence that she seek rehab, Evie’s onto something—something fishy.

Snooty playground mom, Marla, has gone missing and Nomia was the last to see her.

Coincidence? Or does the village have a killer trolling around?

Evie is determined to get to the bottom of things…or the bottom of a nice bottle of bourbon; whichever comes first.

Maybe she should stick with the bourbon, because as Evie dives deeper into the mystery, she starts to discover that mermaids are not nice…

UNFATHOMABLE by Rachel E. Moniz
Just another sunny, summer day on the coast of Rhode Island...
...until the boat crashed.

Scared, alone and filled with regrets, Theresa Gordon waits for rescue, her guilty thoughts her only company. As the last remnants of her sanity slip away during the dark night, rescue comes in a most unexpected form.

Troy Williams has searched for the one woman who can save him and thinks Theresa might be the one...if only she believes his unfathomable story...

BLOODY DEPTHS by Joseph Mazzenga
Maren’s home was the ocean that she loved. An oceanographer, she lived her dream of being one with the sea until the day an ill fog rolled in to change her life forever.

She lost everything she knew - her family, her friends and her humanity.
All that remains is her love of the sea, and a fading hope that the humanity within her can be saved by the caretakers of the ocean that no one knew existed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mermaids? October 5, 2012
By Libmom
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good collection of short stories - all very different but all having to do with mermaids or mermen. The characters are realistic but quickly slip into sci-fi range when they encounter the aquatic life they are destine for. After reading these you might think twice, or three times, about the creatures you encounter in the water.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Collection of Merfolk Tales November 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's an old saying - actually, there are a lot of old sayings - that goes "Good Things Come in Twos". In the case of Dive: A Quartet of Merfolk Tales, the saying should be revised to read "Good Things Come in Fours". Each of these tales is suitable for older YA's as well as adults in search of an enjoyable read on the topic of Merfolk.

Christene DePetrillo leads off the quartet with DEEPER, a merman meets girl kind of story. Crystal Bawle - yes, that's her real name - is a thity-year-old insomniac; she can't seem to get a decent night's sleep no matter what she tries. And, she seems to have tried just about everything: medication, meditation, exercise. Nothing works. And it's all because of the same dream that has continued to play every night, like an obnoxious commercial, since she became a teenager. It's a dream of being out in the ocean, surrounded by water, subsequently struck by lightning and then pulled down into the watery depths.

Crystal is working the front desk at the Breezes Resort in Bermuda, trying to stay awake, begging for sleep - real honest-to-goodness sleep. The resort is hosting a Marine Wellness Conference - no, it has nothing to do with health-care for Leather Necks - and one of the speakers arrives to check-in. Usually, guests - male guests, anyway - are attracted to her perky partner, Rionne, but Dr. Ray Taimen seems to be more interested in Crystal and she certainly finds him to be quite attractive. It's only natural; he's a merman from an undersea kingdom who has been out of water a bit too long.

Whilst we are on the subject of mermen, Rachel Moniz entertains the reader with UNFATHOMABLE, another tale where merman meets girl and in this instance, they subsequently rescue each other.
