USA Today bestselling author Teri Wilson brings you the perfect beach read rom com with a bright, sparkling love story featuring:
A heroine who’s vowed never to date again-for real, this time!
Her rambunctious Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy
The handsome and brilliant marine biologist she can’t ignore
And the nonstop antics of her friends determined to be matchmakers
Sparks fly when Molly Prince’s puppy Ursula constantly disrupts the beachfront area where new-in-town marine biologist Max Miller is studying sea turtle mating habits. Max and Molly are instantly attracted to each other, but Molly dismisses Max out-of-hand. She’s not dating anymore. Maybe not ever, since her last relationship ended in a spectacular disaster. As for Max, he refuses to take Molly seriously when her job is to play pretend as the aquarium’s mermaid. But when Ursula won’t stop digging in Max’s beachfront yard and reveals her unique ability to sniff out sea turtle nests, she might bring these two opposites close enough to help save the turtles, and maybe even save the aquarium…
Molly is a mermaid, happily employed at the local aquarium along with her puppy turned lobster Ursula. Max (the grandson of the old director) turns up in town determined to turn the profits of the aquarium around even if it mean means firing the best employee on his staff! What follows is mischief from the Charlie’s Angels (a trio of adorable but meddlesome OAPs), turtle saving adventures and some lovingly decorated cupcakes.
This was an adorable contemporary romance with just the right level of angst for me – I read this in just over a day and it really helped brighten my mood especially when I was grumpy from work 😂 I loved how much the dogs (and cats!) featured in the story and the retirement community had me in fits of giggles with their antics. I’d definitely recommend reading this on a warm summer’s evening with a gourmet cupcake and a cup of tea – bonus points if the cupcake has a little dog’s face on it!
