Andrew Grayson thought he had everything… until he met her.

The indulged son of wealthy parents, Andrew has always gotten whatever he wanted almost before he knew he wanted it—clothes, gadgets… even a car! What more could a young man desire?

Enter Annabel Thompson. Freakshow mermaid extraordinaire… in a wheelchair!

Of course, her beauty attracts him. How could it not? Add to that a kind heart, and Andrew can’t help but fall for her.

Annabel’s connection with the freakshow repels his parents and their society friends. They want him to sever all ties with her and his new friends. Oh, and marry the “right” girl with the “right connections.” But he won’t do it. He’ll defy them and marry his little mermaid.

When Annabel turns up missing, declared dead, things don’t add up, Andrew begins asking some difficult questions, the most important being, “What happened to the little mermaid of the Coney Island freak show?”

Find out in this next book in the Ever After Mysteries, combining beloved fairy tales and mysteries. Silencing the Siren offers a retelling of “The Little Mermaid” that will keep you gripped to the edge of your seat as you watch the story unfold.


Silencing the Siren Excerpt SixBut Andrew loved being around people. While the lingering superiority existed within him, he couldn’t find it within himself to be rude to the lower classes like his parents could. His friends as acted the same as well. Trying to fit in at those moments were painful for Andrew. He’d wanted nothing more than to help up the man his friends knocked over and ensure he wasn’t injured. But that would mean immediate ridicule, and the information would no doubt be passed along to his parents. That was the last thing he needed right now. A small smile overtook his features as he watched a mother fixing her daughter’s dress and telling her how much fun they were going to have. Andrew hoped he could say the same for himself. His mother would never have brought him on something like this as a child; unless the price point meant the lower classes couldn’t afford to ride. Then she’d be fine to ride. He resisted the desire to roll his eyes. Mother missed out on so much with her prejudices. Even at a young age, her presence in his life was as minimal as she could get away with.
