Summary

Laurie Morgan runs a café in the small seaside community of Mermaids Point, named after the beauties rumoured to live in the waters a few miles off the top of the point. When a hazy image is posted online of what appears to be a mermaid, the café and the village are soon full to bursting with curious sightseers. 

The most eye-catching of the new arrivals is handsome author Jake Smith, who has rented a cottage for the summer while he works on his new book. Or so he says. In fact, he is a journalist, burned out and disillusioned with life, whose editor has sent him on a crack-pot hunt for mermaids.... 

Jake quickly finds himself drawn to village life, and to the gorgeous woman who runs the local café. But he soon suspects there’s trouble lurking beneath the idyllic façade, and when it looks like Laurie’s family might be involved, Jake faces a difficult choice. Pursue the truth, or protect the woman he’s beginning to fall in love with.... 

Warm, escapist, feel-good and altogether brilliant storytelling from best-selling author Sarah Bennett. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley and Milly Johnson.

Too short!

This was a lovely easy listen and a nice story, but too short. I needed more! 😉

beautiful

My first of the 3 Mermaid Point visits.
Love the characters Lorelai and Jacob or Lori and Jake for short.

Its a fun, loveable story, a level of dishonesty, intrigue and mystery.

Love and friendship is key here. Trust is hard to rebuild once broken.

Its well written and the Audible is beautifully narrated.

Looking forward to my second trip to Mermaids Point 👉👈

Boring and predictable.

Rather an unimaginative storyline. It never really went anywhere. Dull characters and a very weak plot. I finished it to give it a chance to get better, it didnt sadly.

An easy listen

I really enjoyed this book mainly do to the performance of the narrator who has a very soothing and comforting voice. I also enjoy any book which offers a glimpse into small village life
