From the start this title sucks you in, creating interest, and reflecting human nature.
As Mermaids are sighted near a Scottish Island, a town becomes divided, between those who want to wipe them out, and those who want to save the creatures. This is all compounded when first a merman, then a fisherman. Amongst it all, there new relationships are formed, and heroes emerge.
The story is cleverly written, and rolled out for the audience. The characters, certainly the man character, which there are several are slowly introduced, and their character developed.
What I really enjoyed about the book, was the way it reflected human nature, with many attacking the unknown and the mob mentality.
It is an easy read, that is enjoyable.

Slow and Boring.
This is the second book in the series featuring Jessie Cole, a private investigator.
I am aware that Ragan is a popular author and have read several of her titles in the past. This though is far from her best work, with a slow-moving plot, that failed to engage the reader.
The roll out of the story, describing the characters, trying to paint a picture of them is commendable, but it misses the mark on the books genre.
The tattoo thief
By Alison Belsham
An engaging and enjoyable read.
This title will twists and turns as you try to determine who the killer is and who is the mystery man pulling all the strings.
With four central characters – Marni a tattooist, Francis a newly appointed Detective Investigator, Rory, a detective who desires Francis job, and the Killer. All have their own characteristics and plans.
The plot will leave you guessing who is the killer, and it is cleverly rolled out throughout the story
You will be left wanting more.
