Mermaid by Max Ellendale


It’s all about love. Parental love, filial love, platonic love, close friends’ love and of course, romantic love. Completely angst-free and thoroughly encompassing, the world that the author creates is the kind of world everyone dreams of living in.

Veronica (Vee) Baird is an ex-detective who was wounded badly in the past in the line of work. And then her house burnt down. Without a job, without income, without a home and with a nine-year old daughter, she returns to Seattle from Portland into the comforting world of her college friends, Jordan and Alice; and their partners and group of friends – ‘the mermaid pod’. She meets Scarlett, a paediatrician, through Alice and is attracted. However, self-doubts, depression, negative self-image etc. hold back Vee but Scarlett has no such compunctions.

The book is narrated in first person by Vee but does a fine job of developing every single character. While it is primarily built around the relationship between Vee and Scarlett from their first meeting to proposal, it also showcases many other relationships equally well.

And sex! Yes, great sex scenes! Plenty of great sex scenes!

Read this to get lost in a beautiful world of strong, loving women supporting and looking after each other – who are also hyper-sexed. We loved this book.
