Fantastic! A nice quick read with an engaging character and a nice thrill of mystery. I'd love to see more from this character someday.

Liana spins a great story, if you liked this you should look at her longer book "Even Villians Fall in Love".

I don't understand all the high ratings. Yes, the story was short but nothing really happened.

Short story. Quick read. Engaging character. Strange occurrence. Nothing really exciting happens.

Hilarious! I kept laughing out as I read this witty little tale! It's a perfect mix of fantasy and modern themes. I love the way Brooks writes with such a feisty, tell-it-like-it-is flair. You go girl! The cover art first hooked me with that beautiful underwater scene, and it only got better from there. I only wish the story was longer. (I'm not sure the title fits in with the lighthearted air of the story, but I assume it's a misnomer designed to surprise the reader.)

I enjoyed this. It wasn't truly outstanding nor terrible, so three stars seemed appropriate. The writing was enjoyable, although it was a very short and fast read. However, I will definitely read more by this author in the future.

Nice short story by the incomparable Liana Brooks. (Picked up while free on Kindle.)
Could use a touch of editing to tighten up the slightly confusing time while in the water; but then struggling with things in the water is confusing.

Quick short story. Enjoyable. A little strange occurrence set into a "routine" day on the job. I'd read more adventures involving this MC.

Fun little piece of mermaid-themed flash fiction. Brooks manages to deliver quite a bit of character in a short amount of pages. Free to download on Amazon right now.

Kristin is kind of insensitive, and that would be okay except nothing exciting happens.

This short read was good and had the potential for a full length book. Hoping to read more from the author.
