Loved the book She better be having a 4th one on the way and soon This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Lucy Snow is an artistic girl that longs for the sea

that she is meeting a native her mother decides to take extreme measure She murders the duke and slips a note to the police hinting that one of the dukes admirers might have taken it personally that the duke didn t fancy them When the police went to round Lucy up they opened her bag to find rat poisoning in it When Lucy is in jail she finds that she is getting land sick I m unsure what to think about Lucy It was cute and interesting, if a little scattered For an extremely fast novel Lasky tried to bring in the stories of four women aside from the titular main character, Lucy Lasky head hopped a lot to get the story out and everything came so easily that there was no real tension I liked the place Bar Harbor Maine is practically the main character of the series and it s lovely to

meat of my irritation From what I can tell, Lucy is the end of the series If it is, why is there no resolution If there s another one, Lucy will be a fine addition If it was the last one I m seriously annoyed Edit 2 11 I emailed Ms Lasky about the series and she was kind enough to reply as followsThere will be another book, but I can not promise when I have several other commitments I must take care of first Please be patientThat improves my outlook on Lucy and makes sense Oh to end on a cliffhanger like that What I would give for the books in this series to be just a few pages longer They manage to get so much in, and do a good job of it, but there are times when things feel just a tad bit rushed and with a few extra pages things could be drawn outI liked Lucy, and found her world

for her and May for both having mother figures such as they do I would have loved for there to have beenon the change Mrs Snow went through after her discovery While I enjoyed Phin and Phin and Lucy as a couple, I wished they had hadtime to grow with each other instead of diving right into a relationship, though I felt that Lucy meeting her sisters was well paced It was a decent read, and now I look forward to a book four to find out what happens now that some know I really thought this series had promise, but yet every time I read one of these books I walk away feeling unsatisfied When will I learn My major complaint of a lack of mermaids I both the first and second book is addressed, and we as readers are FINALLY getting the whole picture of what these daughters of the sea are and how they got there, but this series is so painstakingly slow moving It s like you have to read 300 pages to move a small inch Without spoiling anything this book is the sam I really thought this series

to move a small inch Without spoiling anything this book is the same as the others Annoying adults, clueless girl, and a shock cliffhanger I was NOT pleased when a major storyline was introduced to readers with only 20 pages to go I knew where this was leading, and knew there wasn t time to flesh it out So that means book 4 yes you read that right will start with 100 pages of fleshing out the plot element introduced in the last 20 pages of this book A never ending cycle So sad to see such a promising series take this path This book has killed 97% my brain cells This book will kill your brain cells.The main character will be the reason for the alarming decrease of your brain cells.The romance will have you banging your head every minute, therefore the reason for your alarming

Therefore you didn t loose anybrain cells, because you have noto fucking spare I gave this book 2 stars because I actually managed to finish this shit.
