Fred is a mermaid. But stop right there. Whatever image you’re thinking of right now, forget it. Fred is not blonde. She’s not buxom. And she’s definitely not perky. In fact, Fred can be downright cranky. And it doesn’t help matters that her hair is blue.
Being a mermaid does help Fred when she volunteers at the New England Aquarium. But, needless to say, it’s there that she gets involved in something fishy. Weird levels of toxins have been found in the local seawater. A gorgeous marine biologist wants her help investigating. So does her merperson ruler, the High Prince of the Black Sea. You’d think it would be easy for a mermaid to get to the bottom of things. Think again…
MaryJanice Davidson is the New York Times bestselling author of the Undead novels featuring Betsy Taylor; Derik's Bane, and the new young adult novels featuring Jennifer Scales, written with her husband, Anthony Alongi, among other titles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick read, Clever Tails This is the first book in the Fred the Mermaid series. Fred is a half-mermaid, half-human cross with green hair and super strength. She works as a marine biologist in Boston and keeps her mermaid self a secret. She only grows her tail when she knows that no human will see it. She can live and breathe under water, the same as she would on land, so no one is the wiser. Read more at:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Enjoyed It I have read many of MaryJanice Davidson's novels, and I enjoyed this one a lot. The thought of a cranky hybrid mermaid cracked me up, and with MJ's typical wacky humour, I found it very entertaining. I couldn't wait to read the next book, and was sad to find out it was ending as a trilogy. I would definitely recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a dud I did not enjoy this book. I already have the sequel, so I'll probably read it, but I found the story and characters boring, and compared with Davidson's other writing, this shouldn't have been published.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Real Lackluster As a longtime fan of Mary Janice Davidson, I was more than a little disappointed with her latest work. Though thoroughly amusing and light-hearted, the plot was slightly weak and I found myself bored with the content. HOWEVER, there promises to be a sequel to this novel, and it holds the potential of being much more entertaining to its predecessor.
