Will she learn to hear the song in the falling snow again?

Reid has recently moved to Charles Town to start over after his wife walked out, leaving him alone to raise their son, Michael.

About the author

D Johnson wears many hats: mother, wife, editor, tutu maker, and writer, to name a few. Some of her favorite people are the two little girls who often implore that she "watch me!" in the middle of forming finely crafted sentences, that guy who dozes off well before she closes her laptop, and those furry critters at the foot of the bed at night. If she could do anything in the world, she would live in Cinderella's castle and write love stories all day while sipping Dr. Pepper and eating calorie-less Hershey's kisses. For now, she'll stick to her Dallas-area home and spending her days with the characters she's grown to love.

After 16 years in education, Johnson has embarked on a new career, one as a full-time writer. This will allow her to write at least one book per month, which means many of your favorite character will have new tales to tell in the upcoming months.

<b>READERS' FAVORITE - A breath of fresh air is the description that befits The Mermaid's Carol. Escaping the stereotypical romance novel scenario, The Mermaid's Carol is a mix of frustration, betrayal, secrets, angry children and strong women. It carries a strong message throughout the story. Take a stand for who you truly are, and if you want a bit of encouragement and a happy ending, read Abigail Keam's The Mermaid Carol. You're in for a magical treat about real life if you do!</b>


Piper Hathaway discovers that her husband Joel is thinking about leaving her and their two children. She loves her husband and doesn’t want to lose him. What to do? Desperate to reconnect with Joel, Piper arranges a Christmas vacation at the Last Chance Motel where miracles happen. Piper prays for one, but everything falls apart.


The children get into trouble with the law, and Joel is rude and distant. Piper is ready to throw in the towel, but something holds her back. Perhaps it is the ethereal singing Piper hears in the lagoon each day at dawn.


Eva Hanover, the motel’s owner, says the magical singing comes from a siren of the sea. Legend has it whoever catches a mermaid singing will have something wonderful happen in their life. Piper doesn’t believe mermaids exist. Still, she is drawn to the water’s edge each morning in hopes the old sea tales are true because Piper needs a miracle in a hurry!
