SWIMMING WITHOUT A NET

Image of Swimming without a Net (Fred the Mermaid, Book 2)

Being a mermaid who hates the open water is just one of the challenges facing Davidson's quirky and cranky heroine. The second chapter in this wildly offbeat series has lots of laughs as well as biting social commentary.

Fred's half-human/half-mermaid disposition hasn't gotten any better since her unexpected introduction to merfolk. In fact, Fred has been decidedly cranky since both Prince Artur the merman and hunky marine biologist Thomas Pearson have disappeared from her life. Things get more complicated when Fred is summoned to her first big merfolk meeting. The pressing question the merfolk face is whether or not it's time to reveal themselves to the world, and they want Fred's perspective. Yikes!
