Product Description

On the day of her engagement party, an ex-mermaid’s life is disrupted by the unexpected arrival of another mermaid—a sister she has never known. Under normal circumstances, Barbara Davies would be overjoyed, but her special day is already wrought with tension. While Barbara is not the first mermaid from the Mediterranean kingdom to settle in small town Ontario, she has yet to reveal her origins to her fiancé. So when Arabella, the gorgeous sister whose disturbing black eyes banished her to the island of Crete, saunters into her life, clutching the arm of Barbara’s discarded lover, a powder keg of emotion is released.

Relationships falter and careers stall as envy stirs in the hearts of the sisters. On the verge of meltdown after her fiancé leaves Canada for a teaching job in Vermont, Barbara flees to Arizona hoping for a reprieve. There, she finds solace at a retreat for ex-mermaids and a second chance at love with a charismatic preacher. As she contemplates a new life in the desert paradise of Sedona, shocking secrets emerge and tragedy strikes. A stronger and wiser Barbara rises up to face these new challenges and embrace the best parts of her mermaid heritage.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want a mermaid tablet that gives personal support along with Specialist Skills! 30 September 2015
By Rebecca - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Coming of Arabella is a unique story in a series about mermaids becoming human. It isn't easy being a human. Barbara has been through the transition in book one and now her twin sister follows in her footsteps. Barbara entered her human life in a 50 year old body while Arabella joins the human world in her twenties. Not fair! On top of that, Arabella is one bad fish who stirs trouble everywhere she goes.
Accepting what life tosses at you, forgiveness, and finding the good in others makes this story a winner on my shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Highly Original Read 6 September 2015
By Beth Dale - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Coming of Arabella is an original star in a world awash with knock-off stories. The plot is about a mermaid who has given up her life in the sea and has moved onto the land. The main character, Barbara, is a smart strong woman, a role model for reinvention. The message in the story is one of forgiveness, learning and personal growth. The author offers hope and shows that the way forward is through positive thought and action.

I thoroughly enjoyed this original life-affirming story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable story I could relate to 25 December 2015

Coming of Arabella

This is the story of reinvention and family. While this is a great stand-alone book, it is actually a follow up to “Between Land and Sea” Book 1 of the Mediterranean Trilogy series. This story is told from the point of view of Barbara Davies, former mermaid who gave up her tail for a man and lost a whole lot more. Seems some mermaids have the same problems with men as human women can.

In “The Coming of Arabella”, Babara has worked hard and carved out a good life for herself. She is coming into herself. Then her sister, Arabella, shows up–in human form. Arabella is everything and has everything Barbara does not. She’s young and beautiful, cruel and insensitive. She’s the kind of sister you want to slap into next week. Or further. And she systematically ruins everything Barbara has worked so hard to create. Relationships, job and career, family– every single thing. Worse, every place Barbara runs to, there is Arabella. Again. Sabotaging her life.

This story will make you cry alongside Barbara at the unfairness we can all relate to. You will cheer her determination to continue to want to do the right thing, despite the cost. Barbara is not perfect. She’s made her mistakes, as have we all. She’s learned or is learning from them. She goes into things with her eyes open now, and her heart still on her sleeve.

And Arabella? Well, no one woman can have it all forever, now can they?

I thoroughly enjoyed “The Coming of Arabella”. However, I would suggest reading “Between Land and Sea” first for a better understanding of the Kingdom and mermaid tribes and the Mer-world Joanne Guidoccio has created. Since I was not familiar with the backstory, it sometimes took me a few pages to figure something out. My fault for reading them out of order. Overall, this was a thoroughly enjoyable story with plenty of unexpected twists to keep it unpredictable and interesting. And real enough that most people will be able to relate to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great follow up to "Between Land and Sea" 8 September 2015

A great follow up to "Between Land and Sea". "The Coming of Arabella" kept me engaged and wanting to know what would happen with Barbara whose initial journey is featured on the first book of the Trilogy. Joanne Guidoccio is a wonderful writer, and throughout her book she shares her wisdom on forgiveness, kindness, personal growth, self-esteem, and value. I recommend it, and I'm looking forward to reading the third book.
