The Mermaid's Purse

By Dorothy Keddington

Publisher's Note: A story like the sea itself - full of beauty, yet always with a hint of danger, where moods of light and shadow, calm and storm, life and death compete. Within its pages love is the tide that moves people together or drifts them apart, while the past returns, like waves on the shore to change and alter the present. The Mermaid's purse is a simple hiding place for a mysterious carnelian brooch. The cameo's worth arouses the greed of a ruthless man. While the mystery of its origin lead Arianne, Ian and Cameron into dangerous waters to protect the treasure of each other.

Mandi's Review: Arianne Moore is a young, beautiful widow, who is running from the ghosts of her past. Trying to escape her sorrow, she travels to the legendary Neahkahnie Mountain to help her aunts run a seaside bed and breakfast. There, along the mysterious, mist-shrouded coast, she meet Ian MacDonald, a Scottish sea captain who has spent his years working for a salvaging company exploring old shipwrecks. The old captain brings laughter to her aunt's small cottage, and Arianne is happy to see the twinkle in her aunt's eye. But when Ian mysteriously disappears, Arianne must rely on Ian's handsome nephew, Cameron Shaw, to help solve the mystery of "The Mermaid's Purse". This book is filled with mystery, suspense, and adventure. The beautiful descriptions of the misty coast will leave you feeling as if you are truly there. Cameron Shaw is a handsome, heart-skipping character, and the blossoming romance between him and Arianne Moore will leave you sighing. This is a great read, and if you love a good, clean romance, this book is definitely for you.
