Not Everything Is A Mermaid That Dives Into The Water - Russian Proverb

  • Dec 3, 2007
This is the second 'tail' in the Fred the Mermaid Series.

Only a year ago was Fred's world turned upside down when she met for the first time another Merperson, Artur, Prince of the Undersea Folk. Until that time only her mother and her best friend Jonas knew of her scaly secret. Fred helped Artur with a little pollution problem and in the meantime bewitched both he and Thomas, her co-worker, both of them falling for her, head over fins.

But it's been a year, and since then Fred hasn't heard from either one of them. She's been living her life as normal while forced to watch as her best friend and boss swoon over each other. Fred is getting crankier by the day, which thankfully equals big laughs for us readers.

Then one day she is visited by two more of her fellow Merpeople asking her to make a journey to the Caymans for some special meeting known as a Pelagic. Reluctantly Fred agrees and soon she and Jonas are in the Cayman Islands, at a private resort, with none other than Artur, Thomas and a ton of merpeople.

I don't know what it is about MaryJanice Davidson's writing I like the best, the witty dialogue, her sassy characters, her humor, or her vivid imagination. All I do know is book after book she has me laughing out loud and all consumed in the worlds she has created.

This was a wonderful follow up to the first book Sleeping with the Fishes (Fred the Mermaid, Book 1) and Fred is just as fierce and funny as before. Fred learns a little about her past and people, while making the usual waves in the wake of her abrasive but fascinating personality. MaryJanice Davidson makes Fred and her underwater world seem so natural and real, this is a book you can easily enjoy.
