This was a brilliant fun story about Nancy having a second chance at life after being betrayed by a louse of a husband who was not only tight fisted but couldn’t keep it zipped.
My first book by this author, I loved Nancy’s determination and her tight friendship with the gang of girls, all of whom won my heart. Each supported her well in times of need.
A boat race to help Nancy gain her freedom from her husband and her precious boat, these mermaids form a cohesive group to help her win. Each one was powerful in their own right.
IT was a fun read and I loved tapping my kindle screen until I reached the end. I couldn’t seem to put it down or even want to. The book was a great literary oasis to escape into. I loved every word of it.

Romance, betrayal, and an epic yacht race make Carrie Talick’s debut novel perfect for fans of Elin Hilderbrand and Susan Mallery.
Hermosa Beach housewife Nancy Hadley is no pushover. So when her philandering husband, Roger, is caught in flagrante with an opportunistic widow on their racing sailboat, Nancy sticks it to him. She tells him she wants a divorce–with the sailboat, Bucephalus, part of the deal, too.
Roger would rather make Nancy’s life a living hell than give up his boat. But Nancy has other plans. After moving out of their opulent home, she and her posse of girlfriends invest in a racing boat of their own to live on, and she teaches them the fine points of sailing. Meanwhile, and unbeknownst to Nancy, a big real estate development is under way that would destroy her beloved harbor and new home. When scheming Roger returns to ask Nancy to help capture the last committee vote–held by Nancy’s old college friend–Nancy prepares for battle.
Nancy is not skittish about taking a few risks, so in a bold gambit, she makes a bet with Roger: a showdown in the thrilling Border Dash Race from Newport Harbor down to Ensenada, Mexico. The winner of the race will get everything they want.
The stage is set for the race of a lifetime–and the tantalizing possibility of new romance for Nancy–in a novel as heartwarming as it is breathlessly exciting.
