REVIEW: Mermaid Beach by Sheila Roberts

Posted May 14th, 2023 by in Blog, Contemporary Romance, Review / 9 comments


Mermaid Beach by Sheila Roberts is the 7th book in the Moonlight Harbor series, but I never once felt lost in this story. The characters are funny, full of spunk and the downhome feel of this small-town book makes you want to curl up and get to know these amazing characters.

Mermaid Beach is about three generations of women have a band called The Mermaids, but you soon find that each of the characters had dreams of their own. The third generation wants to follow her dreams of being a songwriter, her mother doesn’t want to let her go because she knows the heartache it might cause, and her grandmother believes that everyone should follow their dreams…and find a good man!

They especially want Bonnie to open up and find love. These characters will push each other’s buttons, they will meddle, they will encourage, argue and they love each other as only a family can do. But when the new bartender sets his sights on Bonnie, the sparks fly. Can these women convince each other to let go and follow their hearts?

This is an amazing story about family, following your dreams and following your heart. An excellent read for the beach.

Bonnie Brinks and her all-woman band, The Mermaids, are the pride of Moonlight Harbor. They’re the house band at The Drunken Sailor, and that’s just the right amount of fame for Bonnie. A lifetime ago, she went to Nashville to make it big, but she returned home with a broken heart and broken dreams. Now she’s got a comfortable life and a brilliant daughter, Avril, who plays for The Mermaids alongside Bonnie and Bonnie’s mother, Loretta.

Avril has big dreams of her own. Her life in Moonlight Harbor is good—she loves singing and playing guitar with The Mermaids, and she has the sweetest, most loyal boyfriend a girl could ask for—but it all feels so…small. She can’t help wondering if there’s something more out there for her. And she doesn’t understand why her mom won’t support her going to Nashville to find out.

Meanwhile, Bonnie threw in the towel on her love life long ago, but Loretta sure hasn’t. She’s determined to be swept off her feet, and she wants the same for her daughter. When the hunky new owner of The Drunken Sailor turns the tables on the band and Avril announces she’s leaving Moonlight Harbor, Bonnie’s comfortable life seems to be drifting away. Will these three generations of Mermaids find their happy endings on the Washington coast? Or will the change in the winds leave them all shipwrecked?
