It may sound strange to say so, but I felt very at home in this book. I loved the setting, and especially loved the mentions of Mobile because it’s a place I know pretty well. Mrs. Herbert shows small, Southern, coastal communities in their full color and glory. The mention of real incidents that have affected the Gulf Coast, like Hurricane Katrina and the oil spill lent even more credibility to the story. Not only is the setting pure perfection, but I have also had a lifelong obsession with mermaids and romance. That made Siren’s Secret pretty much the perfect book for me. I love that there is a romance novel with a mermaid as the heroine. I loved every minute of discovering the relationship between Shelly and Tillman as it developed, and I love the sizzling attraction between them. I love how it always seems to be more than mere physical attraction, though, no matter how Shelly and Tillman try to convince themselves otherwise. I like the supporting cast of characters. I love how the characters’ names all fit so well, especially for Lily and Jet. I love how good Shelly is with Tillman’s autistic little brother, Eddie. I also love how truly well constructed the villain is. I won’t say more for fear of accidental spoilers. Suffice it to say that Siren’s Secret is a perfect marriage of fantasy and reality.
