Fred is a Girl's Name Too

Sleeping with the Fishes

Written by: MaryJanice Daavidson

Released: November 28, 2006 by Jove

Summary: Fred is not your ordinary mermaid. She's not blonde. She's not buxom. And she's definitely not perky. In fact, Fred can be downright cranky. And it doesn't help matters that her hair is blue.

While volunteering at the New England Aquarium, Fred learns that there are weird levels of toxins in the local seawater. A gorgeous marine biologist wants her help investigating. So does her merperson ruler, the High Prince of the Black Sea. You'd think it would be easy for a mermaid to get to the bottom of things. Think again.

I lived this book. Fred is an amazing character with a great voice and the entire concept was a good one. It's books like this that make me love and want to read Davidson's stuff. I give it a 9/10; it's definitely one that I'll read again and recommend to any friends of mine who want to laugh as they read and still be able to sigh at the romance.

*** On a side note, I'm experimenting with shorter reviews. Let me know what you think and if you would prefer the longer and more in-depth ones.

I love this series! Make sure you check out the short story in Dead Over Heels. It's not the same characters, but it's still cute.

While it would be nice to hear what you think of different aspects of the story, I can understand the appeal of writing shorter reviews. Just go with whatever works best for you.
