    Drawing the Mers and Greek Gods together beautifully

    Reading the back cover of this book is a bit like revisiting a favorite friend. At last, it's Angel's turn - the Mer (not mermaid) sister who's always been so intrigued by humans in Judi Fennell's previous books.

    When Logan Hardington finds the beautiful Angel (now with legs rather than fins) hiding on his boat it certainly seems like the Catch of a Lifetime. The fact that she's naked (she is a Mer after all) and his six-year-old son is standing on the pier is a bit of a problem, but Logan just loans her his shirt - what an honorable man.

    Angel's struggles to understand human society, despite all her studies, provide for fascinating and amusing mistakes as Logan takes her shopping for clothes. And author Judi Fennell, knows just how to write those mistakes into delightful dialog, keeping the reader smiling and eager for more. Meanwhile, of course, Logan makes his own mistakes, and the path of true love never runs smooth, especially not when the sharks lying in wait are real ones with real fins and evil intent.

    The novel includes all Judi Fennell's trademark creatures and puns, plus a delightful young child in Logan's son, and some fascinating questions about the willingness of children to believe, and adults to disbelieve their ears and eyes. Greek mythology is neatly woven in, providing intriguing reasons to ponder free will, care for the planet, and the way large changes start with tiny steps. Catch of a Lifetime is a fun and worthy follow-up to In Over Her Head and Wild Blue Under and a very enjoyable romance.

    amazing read

    This author carries her characters over into each book she writes. Catch of a Life Time is an amazing read. There is suspense, drama and unending romance. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time. This book also has its cute moments with the little six year old boy but also adds to the suspense and drama. The toe tingling romance between Logan and Angel will leave you begging for more! Will Angel ever prove what she is capable of and no longer be just Angel? Will she rise to every ones expectations? If you like this book, the other books this author has written will also be must reads!

    Bridget's Review

    Humans are wreaking havoc on the ocean. Angel is a mermaid who is determined to stop the destruction. When a shark tries to make Angel it's meal, she narrowly escapes by hopping into a boat. The boat belongs to Logan and he cannot believe his luck. Like any good father, Logan wants to give his son Michael what he wants most in the world. It just so happens that what Michael wants has found it's way into Logan's boat. That's right, Michael wants a real mermaid. This couldn't have worked out more perfectly. Angel is ready to recruit people to fight for her cause and Logan might be the inspiration she needs to get started. The more Logan and Angel learn about each other, the more they realize that they are kindred spirits. When Angel's life is in jeopardy, Logan must decide between the comfort and familiarity of singleness or to give his all for the woman he loves.

    I'm addicted! I loved the creativity that was necessary to write such a book. Judi is a master of romance and fantasy. If you are a fan of romance and want something different than your average human loving human story, I recommend Judi's books.

    a terrific tale of the tail

    Mermaid Angel Tritone wants to be an advisor to her brother Rod the High Councilman on the Mer Council. However, he rejects her dreams of joining the ruling Council as he insists her safety is paramount. Upset, she goes on a swim by herself to get her thoughts straight.

    Breaking the truce between their species Hammerhead Harry the nasty shark attacks her, but Angel escapes by climbing onto Logan Hardington's fishing boat. She claims to be a "maritime biology" student, but the single father is flummoxed by her arrival as the beautiful young lady is stark naked. He agrees to employ her as a babysitter since his son Michael likes her and he would do anything to make his child feel wanted by him as he only recently learned of his existence. Michael vows to keep Angel's secret that she is a mermaid from even his dad yet also believes she is the mermaid he wished for his birthday. As they fall in love in between arguments with his offspring matchmaking them, the duo rescues Michael from horrible Harry, but also must battle an evil sea monster with oceanic-forming world domination plans.

    The third Tritone sibling Mer urban-oceanic romantic fantasy (see Wild Blue Under and In Over Her Head) is a terrific tale of the tail as the female sister takes the lead with her mission to save the world. The story line is fast-paced from the onset and never slows down for even ebb tide; as the unity of a father, a son and a mermaid who helps being the two males together while saving the earth makes for a fun Catch of a Lifetime.

    Harriet Klausner.

    Good story but X rated!

    I liked the story line, it was original but the sex scenes were too explicit. Nothing left to the imagination. Don't let the kids read this!

    Excellent Weekend Read!!!

    Very enjoyable weekend read. I thought the plot and characters came together to complete a really nice page turning story. I'll surely be looking into reading the other offering in this series as well. :)
