The Summer of Chasing Mermaids

The Summer of Chasing Mermaids (Hardback)

By Ockler, Sarah

From the bestselling author of Twenty Boy Summer, a talented singer loses her ability to speak after a tragic accident, leading her to a postcard-perfect seaside town to find romance. Elyse D'Abreau comes from a family of performers. The youngest of six sisters, Elyse is known as... the most beautiful singer in Tobago, and everyone believes she's destined for stardom--until a boating accident damages her vocal chords leaving her unable to speak, let alone sing. Seeking a life of solitude away from the pity over her lost talent, Elyse accepts a friend's invitation to visit Atargatis Cove. Named for the mythical first mermaid, the Oregon seaside town is quintessential summer and everything Elyse's home in the Carribean isn't: an ocean too cold for swimming, parties too tame for singing, and people too polite to pry--except for one. Christian Kaye is the notorious playboy in Atargatis Cove--insolent, arrogant, completely charming, and the only one who doesn't treat Elyse as if she will break at any moment. Rather than letting her wallow in self-pity, Christian invites Elyse to be his first mate for the Cove's high-stakes Pirate Regatta, expecting her to get on a boat for the first time since her accident. Swept up in Christian's seductive tide and entranced by the Cove's charms, Elyse begins to wonder if a life of solitude is really what she needs. But changing course again means facing her past, finding her inner voice, and opening her heart to a boy who's best known for breaking them...
