If you’re looking for a great beach read have I got a book for you! In Over Her Head by Judi Fennell is a witty, funny, fabulous story about Erica Peck, a marina owner that is scared of the sea, and Reel Tritone, a Mer man who, obviously, lives in the sea. What follows is a rip-roaring adventure complete with stolen diamonds, death threats, creatures of the deep, and true love. Honestly, I’m not going to tell you much else about the plot. It sounds utterly silly. And I can’t really believe I bought it. But I did. And I’m telling you Fennell pulls the suspension-of-disbelief off admirably. Whether you’re at the beach, at the pool, or closed up in your comfy ACed house this summer, if you’re looking for a great romance I’d highly recommend In Over Her Head. It hits the shelves in June.
I see from Judi’s website that In Over Her Head is the first in a series. Wild Blue Under is the story of Rod, Reel’s brother (the names still make me chuckle) and Catch of a Lifetime is about Angel, one of their sisters. Ohh, I can’t wait! Thanks to Danielle at Sourcebooks for sending me an ARC (advanced reading copy) of In Over Her Head and alerting me to this new author and series. I’m looking forward to reading more books by Judi Fennell!
