Mermaid Inn Book Review

Good evening,

It has been a cold snowy winter here in Minnesota which is the usual weather to be had in this area. Luckily I have plenty of books and hot tea to keep me comfortable inside and forget about the weather.

Speaking of books, I was very lucky to receive a digital galley via Netgalley of Mermaid Inn by Jenny Holiday as well as a paper copy from the publisher.

Before I go ahead with my thoughts, I’d like to mention that I received a copy of the book for free but it doesn’t influence my thoughts.

My Thoughts:

I’ve been anticipating this book since hearing about it as I have enjoyed Jenny’s Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series and knowing that the main character Eve is a Librarian!

This book was everything that I hoped for and so much more!

Evie is a Librarian who lives in Toronto and recently found out that not only has her beloved Great Aunt Lucille passed away but she left an Inn called The Mermaid Inn in Moonflower Bay to her neice which is about a three hour drive.

Evie spent time there growing up in the Summer which she used to love and also loved a boy named Sawyer who broke her heart ten years ago and Eve couldn’t bring herself to visit since then.

Returning to Moonflower Bay, expecting to sell the Inn and get back to Toronto where her life is, she finds out that her Aunt put in a clause that it cannot be sold for a year and it’s also become rundownwithin the last decade.

Also, she’s turned her heartbreak into anger towards Sawyer who is now the chief of police, has grown a beard and has become so much sexier than she remembered.

Finding herself on temporary leave from her job to figure out what to do about the Inn for a year, she reluctantly finds herself accepting help with renovating, caught up in small town life including several festivals, the matchmaking schemes of several townspeople, making friends and slowly starting to realize just how much she loves the area.

She finds herself drawn to Sawyer despite trying to keep her distance which turns into a friendship and then a friends with benefits. Cue several steamy scenes, plenty of humor and a connection of two people that didn’t dim despite a decade apart.

Evie and Sawyer are adorable and I’m so glad that they were able to work out their differences.

The older citizens of the town are quite the scheming matchmakers but also very sweet and are the best kind of people to have on your side!

Full of humor, several steamy scenes, the charm of a small town, the beauty of friendship and the power of second chances, it was a book I found hard to put down!

Looking forward to reading the next book in the series when it’s released and I highly recommend this book!

Well that concludes my bookish ramblings for the time being. This book was able to help bring me out of my reading slump and I can’t wait to see who else will fall in love in this series! I hope you’ve enjoyed my Ramblings and I will return soon with more bookish content.

Happy Reading!

My Thoughts:

This was a charming story of two High School Seniors who find themselves caught up in a Twitter war between their two companies. What starts out as trying to one up the competition turns into so much more than either had intended including a fan base of followers.

Pepper has done what she could to be the best at everything she sets her mind to including grades, swim team Captain, younger sister, daughter and recently has been asked to help send out Tweets for her Mom’s company which is called Big League Burger. She’s been feeling overwhelmed lately trying to keep up with everything else going on but doesn’t want to disappoint her Mom so finds herself caught up in an unexpected Twitter war with another company who has accused her company of stealing their famous grilled cheese that has a secret ingredient. Pepper chooses to fight back with some rather snarky comments and also develops unlikely friendships with two people that she hadn’t expected to like.

Jack has grown up in New York, working at his family’s local deli known as Girl Cheesing, trying to figure out if he wants to take over the family business, often feeling in the shadow of his identical twin Ethan, is a part of the swim team and enjoys playing around with developing apps during his free time. When he sees that Big League Burger appears to have stolen his beloved Grandma’s grilled cheese recipe, he takes to Twitter and finds himself caught up in the craziness of going toe to toe with Big League. What starts out as getting back at them for appearing to steal the grilled cheese turns into something much bigger than expected and leads him down quite the interesting adventure including becoming friends with an unlikely person.

This book was full of snark, fluffiness, the power of friendship, adorable shipping between the Twitter fans of both companies and just a general fun book to read. Jack and Pepper are adorable and I loved watching their friendship grow as well as seeing both realize their dreams while also how important family is to them.

I highly recommend checking out this book if you’re looking for a fun read that does have some romance in and plenty of healthy debate.

Well I hope you’ve enjoyed my bookish ramblings and my thoughts have caught your curiosity. I don’t want to give any spoilers particularly since it’s just been released today but I will say that this book gave me You’ve Got Mail vibes with a more modern twist and takes place around high school. Have a wonderful rest of your week and I will be back soon with more reading updates!

Happy Reading!
