Where Love blossoms…

Diverse Book Tour Presents Sarah Ockler’s Summer of Chasing Mermaids

Leave a comment



The youngest of six talented sisters, Elyse d’Abreau was destined for stardom—until a boating

accident took everything from her. Now, the most beautiful singer in Tobago can’t sing. She can’t even


Seeking quiet solitude, Elyse accepts a friend’s invitation to Atargatis Cove. Named for the mythical first

mermaid, the Oregon seaside town is everything Elyse’s home in the Caribbean isn’t: an ocean

too cold for swimming, parties too tame for singing, and people too polite to pry—except for one.

Christian Kane is a notorious playboy—insolent, arrogant, and completely charming. He’s also the only

person in Atargatis Cove who doesn’t treat Elyse like a glass statue. He challenges her to express herself,

and he admires the way she treats his younger brother, Sebastian, who believes Elyse is the legendary

mermaid come to life.

When Christian needs a first mate for the Cove’s high-stakes Pirate Regatta, Elyse reluctantly stows her

fear of the sea and climbs aboard. The ocean isn’t the only thing making waves, though—swept up in

Christian’s seductive tide and entranced by the Cove’s charms, Elyse begins to wonder if a life of solitude

isn’t what she needs. But changing course again means facing her past. It means finding her inner voice.

And scariest of all, it means opening her heart to a boy who’s best known for breaking them…
