Mermaid Inn

Mermaid Inn
Published: 1/28/2020
Escape to Matchmaker Bay in this hilarious and heartwarming second chance romance from the USA Today bestselling "master of witty banter" (Entertainment Weekly). Eve Abbott has a problem-actually, make that a lot of problems. And they're all going to get worse the moment her toes hit the sand in Matchmaker Bay. Once a blissful summer escape, now the tiny town just reminds Eve of loss. Inheriting her aunt's beloved Mermaid Inn is the only reason…

Mermaid Inn by Jenny Holiday

Oh, Mermaid Inn by Jenny Holiday is SO much fun! I sure do love a small-town setting. Throw in a second chance romance & you’ve got me hook, line & sinker.

Things I Loved

Matchmaker Bay is a believable small town with relatable issues. Everyone knows your business & just try to keep a secret from your neighbors. The town is a tourist destination. There are plenty of parades, festivals & there’s a great sense of community.

I love the characters. Even the smaller characters are memorable, well-written & Holiday brings them to life. I can see an entire series based on the people in this town. Hopefully, there is more to come!

The narrative really pulls at my heartstrings. There’s a bit of the Gift of the Magi type feel going on. People in the town are doing what they think will help you. There’s a cyclical type of chain reaction that is endearing, emotional & thought-provoking.


This is 4.5 stars for me. Mermaid Inn by Jenny Holiday is a charming, cozy, heartwarming read. Love conquers all.
