While I found The Cupcake Witch to be a sweet, magical romance, I found The Glass Mermaid to be heart-breakingly sad. Kate is the last of her kind and has lived 300 years with the guilt that she wasn’t able to save her family and her merman love. She’s losing her mermaid charm and magic and shedding one single tear could mean the end of her life. Cooper is a 31-year-old who has returned to Chancellor to die on his terms.
While others don’t know they’re dying, they do. In doing so, they choose their own path, showing their strength and courage along the way. Kate and Cooper have waited their entire lives to meet the love of their lives, fall in love, and have a family. Neither expected to meet “the one” just as their lives are about to end, but they do.
Told in first person from dual points of view, you get to see and feel what and how Kate and Cooper are thinking and feeling. As characters, they’re both great. Their backgrounds are sad, each have already been through so much. The beautiful part of this story is the sacrifice one makes for the other, without seeming to truly think about it. That shows true love. The Glass Mermaid and The Cupcake Witch will make you believe in the power of love and the special magic it creates.
This novella is told from multiple perspectives of two lovely characters, neither of which are looking for love. Yet, both of which are desperate for love. Kate is the last mermaid of a Lake Erie sea kingdom. Cooper has moved in to his grandmother's home to spend his remaining days painting the gorgeous Lake Erie sunrises and sunsets.
I enjoyed learning about the fate of Kate's family and why she is the last mermaid--even if it was tragic and heartbreaking. My favorite part of this book is when the light bulb over my head lit up when I realized that Kate's shop, called The Glass Mermaid because she collects sea glass and crafts jewelry from it could also refer to Kate herself, the last, so very alone and fragile mermaid. Poppy Lawless created a magical and beautiful story.
The Glass Mermaid could easily be read in one sitting as you soak up some sun at the beach, lake, or poolside. It's the perfect summer romance, even if you don't daydream about being a mermaid.
Pick this one up. You won't regret it, and I'll certainly be looking for more books from Poppy Lawless.
This is not a long story and I don't want to give anything away but know that it is a lovely short about how the heart can take pain and give love in many ways. It is less a romance and more a story about how there comes a time when you see how in order to make your life meaningful you have to give to others.
