I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads

Wow The mermaid Collector was a pleasantly delightful read. The read was light, heartwarming, sad, happy and magical. I managed to finish the book in just a day because I couldn't find myself able to put it down.

I love the way the author did the parallel time difference to show the readers were the mermaid legend originated at that town, it flowed smoothly with the current story line. The characters were interesting, the battles that they fought from losing a death one at an early age, to alcoholism to disorders made their stories unique in their struggles. Dealing with relationship between Tess and Buzz, Tess and the town, and two very different brothers.

The book was written very well, and I loved it. It touched on things and different perspectives. As sad as the Lydia story turned out, i almost ache for more. I will be looking forward to other books written by this author.
