ShearWater by D. S. Murphy

Product DetailsI intended to read this for my book challenge, but I had already used all the catergories were it would fit.   Here are some places that it could be used, should you, dear reader, be so inclined: YA book, Fantasy, a debut novel, published in 2016, guilty pleasure and a book that takes place on an island.

This is the story of Clara.  Her parents die in a car accident and she is sent to live with a grandfather that she didn't know existed - in Ireland.   Now Ireland is still a land full of magic... leprechauns, fae and most especially mermaids.  I'm always a sucker for a story about Mermaids.

While in Ireland, Clara meets Sebastian.  He's handsome, charming and nearly irresistible.  What is it about him?    He seems to want Clara to be closer and yet pushes her away.  Will he help Clara get to the bottom of the mystery that surrounds her mother and grandmother's past? 

This was a quick, easy and entertaining read.  I thought the characters should have had more Irish names but all in all not a bad way to spend the afternoon.  I gave it 3 out of 5 stars and may read the rest of the series out of curiosity.
