Goodreads Book Description: For Kate Sweeting, love isn’t in the air. It’s in the water.

Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits, her well being on life support. Her future looks desolate until she and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their shriveled existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can play small-town librarian-bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s up with that secretive Blake family from the beach.

Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first to figure out why when the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends. Kate is willing to go along with their subterfuge for a while, but eventually makes a charge for the water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake is there waiting for her…and so is someone considerably less friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will have changed for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.

My Review: Unlike anything I’ve ever read, Updrift takes its reader into a world of mermaids and their ways of living both underwater and on land.

I pretty much went into this book with only knowing that it involved mermaids, however I certainly came out with something I hardly expected!
The description of not only the mermaids but the differences between life on land and underwater, their laws of mating and attraction. The scenery, character development and storyline continued to dig deeper into the world of mermaids, including flashbacks of the past to the present time.

I’ve never read a book about mermaids before so this certainly was unexpected but totally worth the read! I will admit that the beginning was a bit dull and drawn out. It took me a little while to get into it but once I was, I couldn’t put it down!

Thanks so much to the lovely Errin Stevens for sending me a copy of Updrift to read and review!
