I am an absolute SUCKER for second chance romances! Throw in the friends to lovers aspect, and I’m so there. I really enjoyed the last book I read from Jenny Holiday so Mermaid Inn was high up on my radar. It’s a small beach town romance, with all the good, cozy, sunny, small town vibes. It made for a feel-good read I highly recommend if you’re missing the beach and summer!
As much as I love angst in my second chance romances, there’s also something to be said for the sweeter ones too. Sawyer broke Eve’s heart ten years ago, which is exactly how long she’s been away from Moonflower Bay. She’s back in town now that her late aunt has left her an inn, which she has plans to sell quickly so she can get out of dodge. Her aunt knew better and stipulated she couldn’t sell for at least a year – enough time for Eve to reconnect with the former love of her life.
I was just so happy reading Mermaid Inn. It’s a delightful beach town romance, well-written with engaging characters. It checked all the boxes I needed in a second chance romance and I already can’t wait to read more of the series.
