Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown

From Goodreads - Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids. To survive, Calder and his sisters prey on humans and absorb their positive energy. Usually, they select their victims at random, but this time around, the underwater clan chooses its target for a reason: revenge. They want to kill Jason Hancock, the man they blame for their mother's death.

It's going to take a concerted effort to lure the aquaphobic Hancock onto the water. Calder's job is to gain Hancock's trust by getting close to his family. Relying on his irresistible good looks and charm, Calder sets out to seduce Hancock's daughter Lily. Easy enough, but Calder screws everything up by falling in love--just as Lily starts to suspect there's more to the monster-in-the-lake legends than she ever imagined, and just as the mermaids threaten to take matters into their own hands, forcing Calder to choose between them and the girl he loves.

One thing's for sure: whatever Calder decides, the outcome won't be pretty. 

Lies Beneath is a creepy story told from the point of view from a hot merman. I knew immediately upon reading the synopsis that I was in for a treat. The thought of murderous mermaids in Lake Superior is kind of cool, and scary. I usually struggle reading books from a male point of view, but the story was so awesome, and I really liked Calder. My favorite character was definitely Sophie, she was just so cute and fun! This is a debut you must check out!

  1. I've heard surprisingly good things about this book. Surprising because it's a mermaid book and they tend not to get it right. I haven't read one that I REALLY stuck to. This one sounds pretty promising though.


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
