"What a fun laugh-out-loud read!"
You truly can't go wrong when you pick up a MaryJanice
Davidson book. I know that no matter what mood I am in she
can still tickle my funny bone beyond belief. It has now
gotten so bad that I torture my husband by sharing what
was so funny. Unfortunately he just stares at me blankly.
[sigh] Probably would help if I started at the beginning
of the book instead of just reading a blurb. But I digress.
Sleeping with the Fishes is about Fredericka or as she
prefers, Fred. Fred is a blue haired mermaid who can't
stand eating shell fish and likes living on land. No one
is aware of her mermaid identity except her best friend
Jonas, and of course her parents. She is content enough
griping about working at the New England Aquarium, hanging
with her best friend [who desperately wants to give her a
makeover], and avoiding her parents personal life.
But like any good romance you need a wonderful hero to
enter. However in this case there are two, one a marine
biologist named Thomas and the other of course a merman
and the prince of the Red sea, Artur. And as only Ms.
Davidson can do she plays each one of these character off
each other perfectly creating pandemonium and tons of
laughs. In a matter of 24 hours Fred's life is turned
upside down with romance and intrigue as they try to solve
why there is toxic waste being dumped in the ocean and who
is the cause.
MaryJanice Davidson's, Sleeping with the Fishes is a great
read. I truly recommend this, especially if you are in
need of a good laugh and something out of the ordinary. I
look forward to the next installment in this series as the
end definitely leaves it wide open for more fabulous books
