5.0 out of 5 stars A "Keeper"!, 12 Feb. 2004
This review is from: The Mermaid of Penperro (Wink & a Kiss) (Mass Market Paperback)
Konstanze had been gifted with her mother's talent of singing opera. When her mother was on her deathbed, Konstanze vowed to marry John Bugg for security despite him being decades older than her. After two years of abuse, she fled to a cottage in Penperro (Cornwall) that her husband did not know she had inheritated. The husband sent his son, Bugg II, to locate her.
Mr. Foweather was with the Preventive Water Guard Service. He was in Penperro to catch smugglers. However, the people of Penperro could not afford the high taxes of the Crown. Smuggling was the only way they could survive. When Foweather heard Konstanze singing, he followed her voice and thought he saw a mermaid. Upon seeing him, Konstanze dove into the sea to hide because she had been swimming nude (in her private cove). This gave Tom and idea.
Tom Trewella was not a smuggler himself, but he did do the paperwork, scheduling, selling, and such of the smuggled goods. He hired Konstanze to play the part of a mermaid to lure Foweather and his crew away whenever they got too close to the ships or goods. The entire village got into the act. Soon, the Mermaid of Penperro became a legend!
***** This one is a keeper! I loved it so much that I refuse to even loan it out, for fear of losing it! The mermaid costume was designed artistically for easy and fast maneuvering! Awesome story that I highly recommend! *****
