From the big city to a little yellow mobile library on the Isle of Skye ...

When Jenna Palmer agrees to the new position of mobile librarian on the tiny Arrandale peninsular of the Isle of Skye, she knows she’s signing up for difficult working conditions and mediocre wages. But Jenna needs to get away, and a little yellow mobile library called Buttercup could be her escape to happier dreams ...

However, whilst Jenna can get to grips with foggy island roads, local mermaid legends and even big purple monsters, she never expected to have to contend with a boss as grumpy as Daniel McGregor, or a young book lover as enthusiastic as his niece, Katrina.

Arrandale might represent Jenna’s safe port in a storm, but could she and Buttercup also become a beacon of hope to Daniel, Katrina and the entire island community?

Wow! Did Happy Dreams at Mermaid Cove really started out with a bang… well, a heart attack and a emergency call out any way, which is certainly not the way Jenna Palmer wanted to start her new job in Arrandale.
Jenna is nervous about starting this new job, and a new life away from her abusive ex, which would go a lot more smoother if her mother hadn’t given him her new number and if she could turn off his voice inside her head.
Happy Dreams at Mermaid Cove has it all! Gruff boss, mermaids, a mobile library, Scottish isles, but as a warning, it handles the subject of physical and emotional abuse, so if they are triggers for you, then this is not the book for you. But if you are hoping for a book about a women who regains her voice, finds new love and works in a mobile library, well is this the book for you.
This is my second Marie Laval book I have read and it is as magical to me as the first. The author sets the scene perfectly and doesn’t scrimp on the detail while also managing to weave the perfect happy ever after.
I give Happy Dreams at Mermaid Cove 5 stars
