I don't read many books involving mermaids. Not since I was little, anyways.
But these mermaids aren't how I remember. They're cruder. Evil. Spooky. More like monsters and less like what Prince Eric might go for.
I really liked Monstrous Beauty.
It takes place in 2 different times. The past and present. And I loved finding out little things along the way that connected these periods in life.
The romance was lovely and the small beach town setting was both unsettling and calming.
A good read if you like mermaids, ghosts, romance or mysteries!
