She swims in secret up in the mountains, far away from anyone that might hear bt deadly song. Cute, fun, and the perfect summer read on the beach The fact that this book wasn’t part of a series was refreshing, however, I felt like it could have been a longer book.
Cole was someone Hubbadr wasn’t sure about at first, but from the moment Lexi spotted him at her lake in the very begin I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first picked this book up.
