9 out of 10

From the back of the book..."...we are introduced to two shell-shocked veterans of the wars of the heart. There is Fay, a folklorist whose passion for mermaids has kept her from focusing on any one man. And right across the street there's Tom, a popular radio talk-show host who has focused a little too intently, having married and divorced three times."

My thoughts...we get to know both Fay and Tom individually before they ever meet each other. They don't meet until the middle of the book. Their story doesn't become an immediate happily ever after. Because of past experiences, personal histories, and life challenges, their road to a happily ever after has potholes and bumps.
