A mermaid named Lily and a Native American named Nash, short for Nashoba or the wolf, have a romance. But, that’s not all there is to the story. This is a novel of romantic suspense.

Lily Borsage is a siren and as such can have any man she wants with a little song. Nash, short for Nashoba Bowman, is a Native American with talents related to animals. Think Dr Doolittle. I’m making light, but the story has a dark component as well. Nash’s last two girlfriends ended up dead. The police don’t know who’s responsible because both deaths were made to look like something other than murder.

Nash seems to be immune to Lily’s charms. Rendered equal with all women and unable to use her magic, Lily is more than intrigued by Nash and finds herself drawn to him more and more. They knew each other when they were kids. And now she would like to get to know him again.

The closer Lily and Nash get, the more some anonymous person seems to object and want to cause trouble for her.

My thoughts: 

Lily Bosarge is the first mermaid I’ve read about in a while. And this is the first book that I’ve read by Debbie Herbert. There are two other books in the series, but Siren’s Call does read well as a standalone.

The book is well written and fast paced. The suspense is well done. Will the killer find Lily and wipe her out the way his last 2 girlfriends were killed? Will their secrets keep them apart?

I liked how the book mixed Native American folklore and mythology with European traditions about mermaids. The portions on mermaid heritage are thoughtful.

The romance is awesome. Nash and Lily don’t hit it off all at once and their relationship develops along with the characters’ development during the story.

My only complaint was that there was a tiny bit of repetition in a few places in the book.

You’ll like this book if you enjoy paranormal mysteries or romantic suspense with a paranormal touch. I really enjoyed it and give it 4 out of 5 stars.
