Murder at a Mermaid Nightclub

The enchanted village of Bijou Mer’s on high alert, with the villainous Horace on the loose. Imogen’s excited to escape the tension with a trip to the underwater Mermaid Kingdom to bake for the young mermaid queen’s engagement to the pirate king.

But when the mermaids turn out to be less French Riviera and more Jersey shore, the bakers are wrapped up in their world of clubbing in sea caves and fighting off seals for the best tanning spots, and are embroiled in a pirate smuggling scandal. It gets worse when a member of the mermaid court is found dead in a fishing net, and one of Imogen and Maple’s baked goods seems to be the murder weapon.

Imogen tries to fish out the real murderer to clear their names, while struggling with her romantic feelings for Hank. At the same time, she’s working with him to learn to control her magic and investigate Horace’s riddle and her own mysterious past.

As the mermaid court’s freewheeling lifestyle rubs off on the bakers, the gang lets loose and passions rise to the surface. But with a giant octopus crawling the ocean floor, the mermaid court filled with simmering secrets and scandals, and the ever present threat of the Badlands Army, Imogen must solve the murder before she ends up fish food herself.


Another hit in this magical cozy mystery series.

The gang from the Water Kingdom travels to the Mermaid Kingdom to make the pastries and such for the wedding of the Mermaid Queen (Winnie) to the Pirate King (Chuck).  To do this, Imogen and the others have to transform into merpeople to be able to get around their world since most of it is under water.  It is a new twist for Imogen, as she is still getting used to having magical powers.  While there they come across a mermaid that was murdered and Imogen has to solve the crime.  I will have to admit that I never guessed who killed Bubbles and the reason why was quite fascinating.  So much history between many characters. And there is some interesting twists when it comes to Imogen and Hank and their attraction to each other.  Oh and we do learn a little bit more about Imogen’s past and how she didn’t know she was magical.  There is still a lot more to come with that aspect, but what we discover is quite shocking – or at least to me it was!

I still can’t explain why I really like this series.  Maybe it is the creativity in the characters, worlds and magic; maybe it is the humorous situations; maybe it is the burgeoning love between Imogen and Hank; or maybe it is just the right book at the right time.  But whatever reason, this is a must read series for me and I can’t wait for book four that will be out sometime this month.

We give this book 5 paws up
