Book Review of Wild Blue Under by Judi Fennell
The second in Judi Fennell's unusual romance series, Wild Blue Under introduces us to Rod Tritone, a prince of Atlantis. Rod Tritone is given the difficult task of finding a distant relative Valerie Dumere and convincing her to accept her unique inheritance, the governorship of the Southern Ocean. All he has to do is bring her to the ocean or the sea, one drop of seawater will cause Valerie to grow her mermaid tail. Having lived his entire life in Atlantis, Rod Tritone's vocabulary and experience centers around ocean references, but he can make himself understood. Rod's hadn't expected Valerie Dumere to be disinterested in her inheritance and to have an irrational fear of the sea. But Rod doesn't let these hurdles keep him from his task. When Rod and Valerie travel to the ocean and enlist the help of nearby sea creatures, they face and surmount unexpected dangers together.
Wild Blue Under is a whimsical and witty read. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a light and humorous romance.
