“Fred” Bimm is a mermaid, but not your typical mermaid. She’s
tall, has green hair and a cranky disposition. She gets
seasick and is allergic to fish.
Fred is a
marine biologist who toils away at the New England Aquarium in
Boston. She has to deal with the fact that the aquarium fish
are on a hunger strike, and clamor for the sounds of the Pet
worse from there. Someone is putting toxins into Boston
Harbor. Fred investigates the situation with a Dr. Thomas
Pearson, a marine biologist, and Prince Artur of the Black
Sea, a royal merman. Both Thomas and Artur think Fred is the
bomb. All Fred wants to do is solve the mystery, and go back
to her normal life.
Sleeping with the Fishes
is a hilarious start to a new series. Mary Janice Davidson
fills this novel with her signature style of humor, which had
me in stitches for eighty percent of the book.
I love Fred,
who tells it like it is and struggles to deal with situations
that are either funny, or dangerous. Both Thomas and Artur are
hunky heroes that any woman would find it hard to choose
Add to the
mixture Fred’s friend, Jonas, who has a huge crush on Fred’s
boss, Dr. Barb, and you have a hilarious tale that you will
want to read in one sitting.
Sleeping with the Fishes, dear readers. It will
leave you laughing, and begging for the next installment in
