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.

    Story
    "Short, Sweet, And Clean!"


    I listened to Mermaid Inc. in between my longer audios, and this lighthearted story was the perfect length to listened to in one sitting.

    Miranda the mermaid is on a mission to save whales. First, she has to drink a potion that will change her fins to legs. Second, she has to infiltrate Justin's home and pretend to be his housekeeper, while his regular housekeeper is away. Third, she has to get information on one of Justin's clients who's in the business of whaling to put a stop to it. It sounded easy enough to Miranda, but she soon learns housekeeping isn't her forte, or cooking, or doing laundry. Not to mention, her attraction to Justin. Good thing she has Goldie the talking bird to help her out, and guide her.

    Justin's temporary housekeeper isn't anything he expected, in fact she's a disaster when it comes to doing chores, but she brightens his day. When she offers to help him with his newest client because of her in-depth knowledge as an oceanographer, he agrees. He doesn't know her real agenda, but when he things he's lost Miranda he will do whatever it takes to get her back.

    Carly Robins did a fabulous job with the narration. I loved Goldie's character!

    Overall, for a short, clean story, it was well written. I won a copy of this audiobook from the author.

    "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.<br/><br/>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.

    "A Mermaid to Human Story"

    I listened to the audio version of this book. It was okay. I did not think it was especially comedic. The character were not very interesting. It read like the author thought the characters had to be idiots to try to be funny.

    Story
    "A fun, frothy tail...err..tale"

    If you’d told me a year ago that I’d be reading chick lit, let alone a mermaid romance, I would have laughed in your face and gone back to my Matthew Reilly. If you’d then told me how much I would enjoy it, well… let’s just say the men in white coats would be on their way.

    Romance author Caroline Mickelson has managed to change my view with this funny, romantic tail…err… tale, that’s anything but wet behind the ears. Not since Daryl Hannah’s 1984 mermaid film, Splash, have I dove into such a genre so enthusiastically.

    Mermaid Inc follows the foibles of Miranda, a gorgeous, red-headed mermaid who is granted legs by the Undersea Rescue Society to stop Morimoto Industries from whaling. She has 14 days to complete her task and return to the sea, or risk dissolving into sea foam when the magic wears off.

    To achieve the impossible, Miranda is placed as a housemaid in the home of hunky businessman Justin Lockheed under the cover of the Mermaid Inc cleaning service. On land, Miranda discovers that life is not only different, but far more complex than she ever expected, from learning to cook, to discovering television, understanding currency, falling in love with fashion and even deeper in love with her boss.

    With the aid of a smart-mouthed bird named Goldie, who guides her through the comical trials and tribulations of land life, Miranda becomes torn between her two worlds while trying to find a way to save the whales.

    This is a fun and whimsical romance read by the delightful Carly Robins who hams it up just enough get the laughs while keeping it real. Ask any actor and they’ll tell you comedy is harder to play than drama because the timing and delivery has to be so exceptionally good to get the laugh. Robins does just that, landing plenty of chuckles and a number of laughs from Mickelson fine writing.

    It’s a romance, of course, so it’s not all sunshine and sea shells for the hero. Mermaid Inc follows the tried and true path of all good romances – love at first sight, a conflict to tear them apart, and a happy-ever-after to leave you feeling that all is right with the world. It’s light-hearted despite the environmental twist, balancing the more serious underlying message with the froth on top.

    You can find other romance, fantasy and chick-lit audiobook reviews on my site at SaidNotRead dot wordpress dot com if you're a fan of those genres.

    Story
    "Too Far Fetched For My Liking"

    I believe that I only finished this book because I was listening to it on my commute to work. I do not think that if I was reading it I would have taken the time to finish it. It was way to silly for me. Miranda poses as a maid but has not clue how to do anything because she is a mermaid and doesn't know squat about the human world. It makes no sense as to why her employer keeps her except he thinks she is beautiful. Carly Robins did a decent job as narrator but the story was just too far fetched for my liking which is a shame because I truly loved Magic Wand Ranch by the same Author.

    Any additional comments?

    Mermaid Inc by Caroline Michelson was a great read. Miranda is against commercial whaling. She trades in her fin to become a human to help the whales. This was a great book about one person's determination to do the right thing.

    "A cute romantic mermaid story"

    Mermaid Inc is a cute modern romantic comedy about a mermaid on a mission to save the whales who falls in love with a human. The story is a bit silly, but it's all good fun.

    The narrator does a good job bringing the story to life.

    I received this audiobook as a gift. This is my honest and voluntary review.
