So, it had hopes of being really good.... even with some grammatical errors. I'm OCD about that, so the fact that I let them go meant it was ok TO START.

HERE are my issues:

The time period.....???!!! I hated that.... and mermaids can walk UPRIGHT on their fins ALL DAY LONG- no biggie, right?! Pshhhhhh!

The end of the book: if it hadn't been that I love my Nook so much, I would have thrown it across the room and run over and stomped on it in hopes to get the time BACK that I wasted reading this boo

"Tears on a Tranquil Lake" was a short, enjoyable read, but was missing some explanations that I think were important to the plot.

Wasn't a huge fan of this one, but the ending was cool. The mythology of the book didn't work for me, and neither did the romance-y love triangle thing. But the beginning and end were pretty sweet.
The prose was also a bit much. Just the way everything was written made me have to read it twice to really fully understand what was going on.
Just wasn't for me I suppose.
