‘A Dangerous Harbor’ by Rebecca Dahlke

‘Except for the mermaid on a weedy patch of sea grass ghosting in her wake, Katrina Hunter’s solo sail into Mexican waters had been monotonous and uneventful.

And now her thirty-two foot Westsail was on a leisurely stroll with only the current and the thrum of the auxiliary engine for companionship … except, that is, for the mermaid

She rubbed at gritty eyes, the result of too little sleep and too many hours at Pilgrim’s helm. “Sure it is. Last night it was Mickey Mouse reciting Robert Frost on top of a following wave, so why not mermaids?”‘

Why has Katrina sailed into Mexican waters and where has she come from?

What is out there which even starts to make Katrina believe that she has seen a Mermaid?

I am not a great lover of water or the sea, so the probability of getting me on board a sailing boat in the first place, are quite remote.

I could however, if I were an accomplished sailor, appreciate the peace and tranquility of the ocean, time for reflection and making plans.

I wonder though, just how long it would be, before I would begin to imagine things, both visual and audial, as a result of such isolation.

Or perhaps, Katrina’s imagings are not so far-fetched at all and her life is about to take a whole new turn!

As usual, so as to avoid too many unwanted spoilers, I have not included a full synopsis of the book in this post. However to find out a little more about the story, before deciding whether it is your ‘cup of tea’, or not, you can either click on the book image, or click here to enter the author’s website, where there is some great extra background material.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
