A mermaid statue could be the cause of heartbreak or everlasting romance for a practical-minded police chief and his first love in the second of the delicious Bayberry Island trilogy by "New York Times"bestselling author Susan Donovan....
Every instinct told Police Chief Clancy Flynn that his island's claim to fame was nothing but a silly tourist attraction. But now and then, he couldn t help but wonder if his lifetime of bad romances starting with the pretty tourist who broke his fourteen-year-old heart could be traced back to a childhood prank involving that very statue....
Then one day the pretty tourist comes barreling back into Bayberry all grown-up and on the run with her niece. Though Evelyn McGuinness is wanted for kidnapping, she tries to persuade Clancy that there's more to the story. Now the by-the-book police chief must make the toughest decision of his life: to take Evelyn into custody or into his arms....
