What drew me to this book was the blurb. Unfortunately, it had nothing to do with the book I read. While the characters are as described, Rachel is an author and Henri is a pediatrician, the storyline was far different.
While the story wasn’t what I expected it was still entertaining. I was a little confused in the timeline at a few points but nothing earth shattering. Rachel and Henri’s journey towards one another is fraught with interfering exes and the odd white slaver. Not to mention the wicked aunt dressed in black. Throw in a language barrier and a few white lies and you have a quick read that is lightly entertaining.

Dr. Henri Bernier is an analytical man with a quiet life and a job he loves. The last thing he expects to find when he anchors his treasured fishing boat in the sheltered harbor of a small island is an accidental mermaid washed ashore. He soon learns his perfect life leaves much to be desired.
Will desire save them or drown them in a perfect storm from their pasts?
