Jane has traveled the world with her father and brother, but it’s not until her fractured family-still silently suffering from the loss of Jane’s mother many years before-inherits a house and a history in Coney Island that she finally begins to find a home. With the help of a new community of friends, a mermaid’s secrets, and a tattooed love interest with traffic-stopping good looks, the once plain Jane begins to blossom and gains the courage to explore the secrets of her mother’s past.

Colorful characters, beautiful writing, and a vibrant, embattled beachfront backdrop make this the perfect summer read for anyone who has ever tried to find true love or a place to call home.


Ummm…”a tattooed love interest with traffic-stopping good looks”? Sign me up!! LOL

    I almost bypassed this book because the cover was a little blinding to me (I can't help my cover-judgy ways, hush!), but I've read a couple of reviews for it, and now I'm super excited for it to come out. I really can't resist a good mermaid book. ;D
