Having escaped an abusive relationship, Chloe MacGregor is determined to put the past behind her. The little cottage high up on the cliffs overlooking the beautiful North Yorkshire town of Whitby is her safe haven, somewhere she is free to be herself.
When the arrival of her new neighbour and boss, Luke Warwick, threatens her peaceful, sheltered life, Chloe is forced to confront her past and to re-evaluate who she really is.
Falling in love with Luke is not part of her plan but, to her surprise, Luke is falling for her too. The only thing preventing their happy ever after is Chloe herself. Will she ever truly learn to leave the past where it belongs?
Warwick’s Mermaid is Chloe and Luke’s love story. This is a love story, more so about their pasts and the journey to each other.
Everyone has issues, hangups in their lives, our characters in this story too have an emotional baggage. While Luke has his fears it is Chloe whose issues are more of a bigger obstacle in her life.
The story is around 200 pages and the flow is pretty fast. There is not too much wallowing by the characters, it is nicely dispersed with moments of love and laughter.
I would say Warwick’s Mermaid is a difficult love story with tragic yet happy moments on it’s way to a HEA.
