Updrift by Errin Stevens



For Kate Sweeting, love isn’t in the air. It’s in the water.

Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits, her well-being on life support. Her future looks desolate until she and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their shriveled existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can play small-town librarian-bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s up with that secretive Blake family from the beach.

Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first to figure out why when the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends. Kate is willing to go along with their subterfuge for a while but eventually makes a charge for the water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake is there waiting for her…and so is someone considerably less friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will have changed for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.

Review - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I received this book in a good reads giveaway. 

I don't want to add any spoilers and there is not a lot that I can add to the synopsis. I will tell you that I have never read a mermaid book like this before. Instead of the author trying to create an entirely new world as well as a hierarchy and rules that apply to the species, the author used our world. The rules and hierarchy that she created was not contrived and was really unique. I enjoyed reading this book. I haven't liked any mermaid books that I have read, so I felt a little wary with this one. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down.
