Taking the plunge…
Lacy Caldwell’s mermaid gig at a cheesy roadside beach bar provided much-needed income while she pursues her graduate degree. That is until the beloved owner dies and her greedy nephew announces he’s cashing out by closing the bar and selling the property to a developer who’s going to replace the kitschy charm of the Mermaid’s Purse with ocean-view condos.
Cameron Sanders can’t believe his good luck. Struggling financially, he’s thrilled to find out some random, ancient aunt he hardly knew died and left him an inheritance that’ll help take the money monkey off his back. He’s ready to go to the mat in battle when some annoying mermaid from the bar tries to throw a wrench in his plans. But things get complicated when he realizes that she’s a woman he’s started to have feelings for.

The Mermaid and the Starving Artist
Love Jenny Gardiner's writing style. This is the third in the Falling for Mr. Wrong series. While it is part of a series, it can definitely be read as a stand alone book. This was a quick read. The story of Lacy and Cam is so sweet. Lacy the graduate student working part-time as a Mermaid at a tiki bar, and Cam a starving artist trying to find his way. Circumstances throw them together, and it was interesting to see their relationship evolve, especially when circumstances arise that can cause a rift. You'll fall in love with the characters from the tiki bar. I would never have thought about mermaids at a bar - so bravo to Jenny for her creative thinking! Lots of laugh out loud moments, but also moments that show you vulnerability by Lacy and Cam. Loved it.
