How To Be A Mermaid by Erin Hayes. CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015. 212 pages. ***
Tara has dreamed of being a mermaid her whole life. When an opportunity arises for her to be a mermaid and tour aquariums for a year, Tara convinces her mother to let her postpone college life. Tara is drawn to the sea life at the aquarium and distinctly hears a dolphin cry for help and for his mother. While trying to help Kai, a dolphin, she meets a gorgeous merman, Finn, and is faced with conflicting emotions and difficult decisions.
I received this book with 4 gorgeous fat quarters of fabric as part of an exchange for an IG book and fabric swap #quiltersbookpassport. It was an enjoyable read as an escape from the heat in PA this week. At 212 pages it was a very quick romance and fantasy book. Since the most intense part of the book is Tara and Finn kissing, it would be okay for a preteen who loves mermaids.
New York Times Bestselling Author Erin Hayes writes what she wants to read, which includes paranormal romance, contemporary romance, and urban fantasy sprinkled with vampires, billionaire princes, mermaids, steampunk and all the stuff you love.
She lives in San Francisco with her husband and a giant cat, along with too many Sailor Moon figurines and pieces of art she brought back from her travels. When she’s not writing, well, she’s planning her next big trip or watching sci-fi movies.
I used one of the fat quarters as a lining in this boxy zippered pouch, free pattern tutorial from Crafty Gemini at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BruF6Hk9NU
Now I have to choose 4 equally appropriate fat quarters to send with the book to the next name on teh list!
