Description
New York Times bestselling author Susan Donovan welcomes you to Bayberry Island, a special place between Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket where a bronze mermaid statue promises to grant true love to anyone who asks with an open heart…
For years Rowan Flynn distanced herself from Bayberry Island and its infamous mermaid legend. But after her investor fiancé lost what was left of her family’s fortune, Rowan reluctantly agreed to run the Safe Haven Bed-and-Breakfast, determined never again to fall for the ridiculous fantasy of the mermaid matchmaker.
Now Rowan is just biding her time until she can return to her “real” life in New York, fixing up the B and B and avoiding neighbors who are angry that the Flynns won’t sell their land to a developer set on turning the island into a glitzy vacation destination.
But when a handsome stranger arrives at the B and B the night before the annual Mermaid Festival, Rowan’s life takes a turn for the interesting. Could it be the divine hand of the town’s patroness? Or is Rowan being set up for another disappointment?

        October 21, 2013
        The first entry in Donovan’s new series is a lovely blend of romance and women’s fiction. Neither Rowan Flynn nor Ashton Louis Wallace is looking for love. Rowan has slunk home to Bayberry Island—“the Key West of New England,” where locals and tourists alike dress in costumes and there are brawls between rival gangs of fairies and mermaids—after her fiancé turned out to be a con man. Ash is on the island undercover, working for a real estate developer trying to buy the Flynns’ land. When Ashton unwillingly becomes the Mermaid Festival’s bachelor mascot, the magic of the festival and the island works on both of them. Rowan and Ashton’s instant, intense attraction steams up the pages, but Donovan’s real triumph is turning them into complex characters who share a believable connection and are fun without being wacky. As they encourage each other to grow, plausible inner and outer conflicts turn into great chemistry and a satisfying conclusion.
