After she is caught behaving obscenely with another woman, Sophia is left abandoned. Her friends pretend not to know her, her family is trying to decide the best place to banish her, and Sophia wishes that running away was as easy in fact as it was in theory.
She is saved from scandal, if not her suffocating life, by way of an unexpected marriage proposal from Lord Everett Dobson, the most coveted bachelor in the city. Not in a position to refuse, Sophia accepts his offer and agrees to visit his home at Mermaid Cove for three weeks.
Mermaid Cove proves to be as beautiful as promised, complete with endless beaches, glittering waters, a castle that looks like it was made of sand... family curses and local legends... and two beautiful, mysterious women who cannot talk, but seem to have secrets they want to share...

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley for a fair and honest review. I can't properly express how much I liked this book. It was short yes. But oh so good. Lesbians and mermaids who are lesbians. AND fae lore. That resembles The Little Mermaid that I remember (well parts of it like the sea foam part and not being able to talk). OH! And an entire place that practically communicates in sign language so they CAN communicate with the mermaids! The only real criticisms I have is that the mermaids were the default pale and skinny. I like my mermaids to be all different colours and bigger because the ocean's cold. They need the fat/blubber to help keep them warm. Skinny mermaids have never made sense to me because of that. So that bothers me. Read the full review here: https://blowpopsbooks.wordpress.com/2015/09/22/review-the-secret-of-mermaid-cove/
