As a new-business woman, Serena is moaning the lack of good male prospects. Her last boyfriend turned out to be a criminal who stole ten-thousand dollars from her. Things get worse when said ex disappear on a boating trip and Serena's cap stained with Larry-the-ex's blood is found on the boat. Enter Detective Alex.
We soon find out that mermaids are real and that they are the cause of the lack of men. Not the nice kind of mermaids, but ruthless monsters, ready to kill for their ends, charming men to their deaths. Serena, as the mermaid catcher, in the only thing that will save the town from this menace, if only she can keep herself out of jail long enough.
The plot could have been fine but the end product falls really short of expectations. None of the characters ring true. Alex, for sure, deserves to be kicked-out of any respectable police force. I found the animalistic nature of Serena's lust off-putting. The training part of a mermaid-catcher was way too short and unbelievable. And who ever heard of death by breeding ? How does it even work ? Now, that would have been an interesting idea to develop ! But no, we get almost nothing on the nature of mermaids, their lives, their habitat and their reproducing (I've always wondered : it seems to me their fish-tail would be in the way...).
Part of this book wants to be a fantasy novel, but most of it is a sappy romance novel (only they seem to fall in lust more than fall in love). Both parts fight for supremacy and do not work well together. I would suggest to the author that she rewrites the novel, flesh out the mermaids and seriously rethink the pace of Serena's and Alex's relationship. I would also edit the fish sentences at the beginning of each chapter. Some will find them funny, I found them corny.
The lead lady is so incredibly boring. The romantic interest is so incredibly boring. Even the mermaids are really boring. The 'action' and 'drama' were so watered out, I just couldn't finish it. I read majority of it and didn't have much left to finish it, but I actually gave up on it. I don't give up on books...ever. I'll even finish bad books because at least I'm gawking at how bad something is. But this one was just so bland; it wasn't outright horrible, but it held zero entertainment value for me.
The editing was good (thus my 2 stars), so it didn't seem like I was reading illiterate drivel. The dialogue is lacking emotion. The relationships are cheap. The first intimate scene between the love interest and the girl is just weird. The glimpse into the mermaid life via dream-surfing (or whatever it was) was kind of interesting, but that was the only chapter that held some of my interest.
So if you like heroines that are inept, emotionally unstable, yet remain boring in a barely-there romantic interest and goal to save the town from slutty mermaids...congratulations! You found your treasure.
I did enjoy this story even though it was pretty silly.

Not what I was expecting. If I wanted CSI I would have turned on the TV. I saw a mermaid, expected a fantasy. Should have read the blurb and the reviews.Published on March 30, 2012 by darswords
