Swimming without a Net

Fred the Mermaid, Book 2

Swimming Without A Net is the second book about Fred The Mermaid who we met in Sleeping with the Fishes. Fred is a half-biped, half-mermaid who has just recently found out that she has to attend something called The Pelagic - which is a meeting of the whole UnderSea Folk that's going to be in the Cayman Islands. In the island, she sees cutie marine biologist Thomas along with the the High Price Artur who we also met in Sleeping with the Fishes. Fred soon finds out that she's been invited because the UnderSea Folk are divided in whether they should come out of the water closet or stay hidden and Mekkan, the king, wants her opinion on what they should do since she's lived most of her life with humans. We finally find out who Fred chooses to be with - either Thomas or Arthur.

I loved this book, probably even more than the first one. It's still a laugh-out-loud funny story that you can't help but like! It's pure delight reading about how Fred deals with all the UnderSea Folks and her feelings toward Thomas and Artur. I definitely recommend this book to everyone! Fred is so unlike any other mermaid but she's lovable in her surly little ways.

As Fred the Mermaid tries to fit in with her own kind, she finds herself hooked on both Artur, the High Prince of the undersea realm, and Thomas, a hunky marine biologist. She's also caught between two factions of merfolk: those happy with swimming under the radar-and those who want to bring their existence to the surface.
