The Mermaid Catches Her Mate: A Nocturne Falls Universe Story Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Luna Matsya is a local celebrity as a trendsetting hairstylist, but she’d prefer to spread her fin in a nice body of water rather than make a big splash around town. She’s starting to believe that her ability to live and walk among mortals is more of a curse rather than a blessing. Especially now that the flashy tent from a touring magic show is blocking her lake. Where’s a mermaid to swim when the slightest mistake can put her in the spotlight?
Ace Conall is infamous for his daring tricks and he plans to make history with an epic illusion before taking a lengthy hiatus. This is a chance for him to finally feel at home after harboring a secret that may be the greatest magic act never revealed. What he hadn’t expected was falling for a smart-mouthed siren tangled up in his plans.

Normally I find the various authors' Nocturne Falls offerings to be much more gripping.
While this was an interesting spin on a mermaid tail (see what I did there? 😘), which, as a mermaid myself, I always appreciate 🙋🏼, somehow there were too many disconnects to truly dive into the main character, care about her & fall in love with the hero. Too many jumps in emotion/plot happened:
"I hate this guy who's Messing with my perfect, magical lakeI, grr, now he's taking over my salon!" 5 seconds after doing his hair 'off screen', "hmm, yes! I will date you!. Never mind that the town's ruling family would never put her & her lake home in such a position of danger, in a position to blow the whole town's big secret."
Or, "I love so much I'll give up my entire identity & even my species to be with you", 5 seconds after doing so, "never mind, I'm leaving you now."
It mostly just needed a bit of content continuity editing to become brilliant.
The writing (prose, etc) is there, it's just the details inherent in story crafting-- especially in someone else's WELL-defined universe-- that need some love.
There's sex, so a point was taken for that, the random jumps are another point off, and the general lack of grippingness & frequent desire to put it down is another point off. But otherwise, there's mermaids, so extra point given.
It was a disappointing treatment of what could have been a wonderful tale - pun intended
