Publisher's Summary

Adamantly opposed to commercial whaling, Miranda happily trades her fin for human legs when she's given the opportunity to work as a maid for a man in charge of public relations for a large Japanese whaling firm. Miranda soon finds out that she loves pedicures, favors bikinis over clamshells, and that she's a natural disaster when it comes to human housework.

There's so much about the human world she doesn't understand. Why does Justin Lockheed, her handsome boss, make her heart race and her knees weak? And just what is she supposed to do when it comes time to choose between advancing her cause and destroying his career?

    "A Modern Version of the Little Mermaid"

    Think a little mermaid plus washing machines, environmental consciousness, PR agencies, a whole lot of humour, a bit of magic. and, viola! You have this book. This is a clean, short story with a definite fairy tale factor and an assured HEA. Light and quirky, it was fun to listen to and demanded very little from it's listeners.

    "C Mickelson = Romantic Comedy"
    What did you love best about Mermaid Inc.: A Romantic Comedy?

    I enjoyed Ms. Robins' performance of Goldie. Great! I listened to most of this audiobook with earbuds. Several areas of the audio I could hear mouth/jaw clicks, but it didn't distract from the overall listening experience.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Mickelson has a wonderful grasp of the Romantic Comedy genre. This is not the first Mickelson book that I've had the pleasure to listen to and it won't be the last. Family friendly and a fresh listening experience.

    I received a copy via audiobook boom in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Super cute"

    I recovered this book complementary in order for an honest review. I thought the book was super cute. Had a nice little plot. Was well thought out and executed. A few places had a few places I thought stretched it too much. But it worked. It's lite and it's short. There is no sex no steamy scenes leading up to it either. Just sweet. So if your looking for all that stuff this is not it. On the plus side it also had no bad language and I could listen to it with my children in the room.

    "The Little Mermaid with a Cause!"
    What about Carly Robins’s performance did you like?

    I thought she did an excellent job in telling the story and differentiating the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Girl meets boy, saves whales.


    Any additional comments?

    The Little Mermaid with a Cause! This was a fun, quick listen. It's full of humor and makes an important point about taking care of our wildlife and the environment. Miranda's on a crusade to save the whales from harvesting. It would be an awful thing to lose the magnificence of whales in our oceans, as well as all the other creatures and plants that live there and on land.

    One of my favorite characters in this book was the Macaw who talks, but who only Miranda can understand. Others just hear squawks. He's there to help teach Miranda how to navigate human life, and he's got an attitude, a little like Iago in Disney's Aladdin. Miranda was likable enough, if a bit ditsy. And the character of Summer was totally unnecessary. She did little and was just a device to get Miranda and Justin together. Overall, a bit more character development would have been nice, but it wasn't horrible.

    There were some small things that bothered me. The mermaid, Miranda, once she gets legs and comes on land, knows what shirts and pants are, but not what a tie or keys are? Or formal dresses? Those are odd things. How would she know any of them? Perhaps her half-human, half-mermaid friend, who lives under the sea, told her some things but not all? It's not elaborated on, but it struck me as odd. Also, she never just has ankles, it's always ankle bones. In my mind, I kept seeing her skin pulled back, so the bones were exposed. Not the right image to go with this light and fluffy tale.

    Miranda finds humans eating seafood objectionable, even going so far as to empty her employer's freezer of bags and bags of shrimp, crab, and other sea originated delicacies. It made me question what, as a mermaid, Miranda and her sea companions ate. Do they live exclusively on seaweed? IT would have been nice to have more insight into her diet. It also made me wonder how a guy who is constantly worrying about keeping his job can spend so much money on food.

    Overall, this was a light, enjoyable listen about a guy who turns green at the thought of the sea or its creatures and a young, energetic and dedicated mermaid who wants to live on land, and it touched on an important environmental point. Like I said, The Little Mermaid with a cause.

    I received this audio book as a gift from the author. Her generosity in no way influenced my opinion.

    "Great Book!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book, written by Caroline Mickelson and narrated by Carly Robins. Adamantly opposed to commercial whaling, Miranda happily trades her fin for human legs when she's given the opportunity to work as a maid for a man in charge of public relations for a large Japanese whaling firm. Miranda soon finds out that she loves pedicures, favors bikinis over clamshells, and that she's a natural disaster when it comes to human housework.

    The narrator Carly Robins did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

    If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book. The free book held no determination on my personal review.
