Jane has traveled the world with her father and brother, but it's not until her fractured family-still silently suffering from the loss of Jane's mother many years before-inherits a house and a history in Coney Island that she finally begins to find a home. With the help of a new community of friends, a mermaid's secrets, and a tattooed love interest with traffic-stopping good looks, the once plain Jane begins to blossom and gains the courage to explore the secrets of her mother's past.

Colorful characters, beautiful writing, and a vibrant, embattled beachfront backdrop make this the perfect summer read for anyone who has ever tried to find true love or a place to call home. (Publisher's summary from Amazon)

Summer is coming and I am already thinking about all those lovely summer reads.  Between the garish cover, the Coney Island backdrop, and a mermaid's secret, this romance sounds quirky and different enough to have me totally intrigued. What do you think?
