Blog Tour: The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler (Promo)

Welcome to my stop on the Summer of Chasing Mermaids blog tour hosted by Diverse Book Tours.

I remember the very first book I've read from Sarah Ockler was Twenty Boy Summer. It's a very good book that encourages me to pick up another book written by her. All the feels.

Anyway...going back to The Summer of Chasing Mermaids. I truly have to comment on the book cover first of all because it's just so pretty! Can we just take a moment to appreciate it? Just look at that gem of a cover! Even if I haven't read the book yet, I'm sure you'll be digging this book in no time! I can't wait to read it!

What's the catch? Right below is the promo post and everything you need to know about the author and her book, The Summer of Chasing Mermaids! Do check it out! Enjoy!

Christian Kane is a notorious playboy—insolent, arrogant, and completely charming. He’s also the only person in Atargatis Cove who doesn’t treat Elyse like a glass statue. He challenges her to express herself, and he admires the way she treats his younger brother, Sebastian, who believes Elyse is the legendary mermaid come to life.



When Christian needs a first mate for the Cove’s high-stakes Pirate Regatta, Elyse reluctantly stows her fear of the sea and climbs aboard. The ocean isn’t the only thing making waves, though—swept up in Christian’s seductive tide and entranced by the Cove’s charms, Elyse begins to wonder if a life of solitude isn’t what she needs. But changing course again means facing her past. It means finding her inner voice. And scariest of all, it means opening her heart to a boy who’s best known for breaking them…
