Missing Maren by Melissa McTernan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Hauntingly Lovely Romance

I wasn’t sure what to expect from a story involving a sea selkie but wound up loving this book and hoping for a sequel! Part contemporary romance, part urban fantasy, Missing Maren is heart-wrenching, sexy, and intricately crafted. Daniel is only seven-years-old when he meets the girl who will wind up being the love of his life. At their very first meeting, she tells him she is a sea selkie, but already skeptical of fairytales, Daniel doesn’t make much of her claim. When they next meet seven years later, their reunion burgeons into romance but Daniel still does not grasp just what falling in love with Maren means. Missing Maren is full of beautiful highs and lows and in many ways is a coming-of-age story as Daniel and Maren grow from childhood to adulthood and must grow into the love they unexpectedly found so early on. For a novella, this book sure packs a punch to the heart!
