The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . UPDRIFT (The Mer Chronicles, #1) . . . I LOVE romance. I LOVE small-town romance. I LOVE the not ordinary. Now, imagine adding in mermaids, small-town, young girl, super hot guy, and a mystery.

I eased myself in to this one slowly. I found sorrow, pain, mystery, excitement, suspense, secrets, myths. Kate and Cara move to a small-town after the death of her father. Cara needs a change and feels Kate needs the same. A chance comes there way and on the way to a new town they go. Soon Cara falls in love and Kate finds a long time friend. But things change in ways that Kate did not anticipate. She feel distant from her mom and even from the new friends she have acquired since moving to town. There was something going on that she was not privy to. 

The story moves along and things are slow to be revealed but at the same time the pacing was just right for the story itself. There are good characters all the way through the story. Some you love, like and are indifferent to. I enjoyed the build and lulls and even the anticipation of things. 

Narrator Sean Posvistak gave me a fantastic read. The voicing was there with tone, pitch, and diction. The audio was smooth and clear. Things kept pace with my changing of the speed of the audio. I did not feel out of step and the clarity was still there. 

 I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Errin Stevens. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

For Kate Sweeting, love isn’t in the air. It’s in the water.

Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits, her well-being on life support. Her future looks desolate until she and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their shriveled existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can play small-town librarian-bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s up with that secretive Blake family from the beach.

Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first to figure out why when the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends. Kate is willing to go along with their subterfuge for a while, but eventually makes a charge for the water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake is there waiting for her…and so is someone considerably less friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will have changed for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.

Top 10 List
Errin Stevens' "Mer" Top 10
1.     “Rise Up” (song) by Thomas Jack & Jasmine Thompson. Addictive and hypnotic – give it a listen!
2.     “Splash” (movie) is still as funny and adorable as ever.
3.     “Mermaid” (book) by Carolyn Turgeon is a lovely reinterpretation of mermaid mythology, all adulted up.
4.     “Robinson Crusoe” (book) by Daniel Dafoe is a revered classic for a reason. There are no merfolk but lots of ocean and it’s yummy and you should read it.
5.     “Gift from the Sea” (poetry anthology) by Ann Morrow Lindbergh is dreamy and thoughtful and just right.
6.     “Calypso” (song) by Suzanne Vega combines ocean nymphs, a Greek hero, and folk rock music in the cleverest of ways. What’s not to love?
7.     “The Little Mermaid” (animated movie) will have you singing ‘undah da see’ for the rest of your natural born life.
8.     “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” (movie) has the BEST, most convincing mermaids the movie world has ever given us.
9.     “The Mermaid” (poem) by Alfred Lord Tennyson is a warm bath of beauty you can take anytime you want.
10. “Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything” (song/video) by Veggietales is HILARIOUS. Charming for grown-ups and little ones alike.
