BTR's Review of 'Dreaming of the Sea' by Heidi Garrett

Title- Dreaming of the Sea (Novella)
Series- Once Upon a Time Today # 2
By- Heidi Garrett
Genre- Contemporary Fairy Tale Retellings

Years ago when her mother traded her to the Sea Witch for a love potion, she became the witch's apprentice. Now Gia Chantal must find her own apprentice. If she doesn't, the Devil won't take her soul when she dies, and she'll spend eternity tormented for every spiritual crime she's ever committed. However, it's the 21st century, and Gia doesn't know where to begin when it comes to finding her replacement. She'll turn to social media mastermind Cole--an exiled mer prince--to help her.

Ten-year-old, Miriam, an orphan with visionary tendencies, sought refuge in a convent to escape a life on the streets. Now a young woman, the walls and rules that have kept her safe for over a decade feel constricting. When she comes across the ad to be the wealthy Gia's caretaker, she's never wanted anything more in her life... until she meets Cole.

Book Talk Reviews

I enjoyed reading Dreaming of the Sea,the plot was great and I just have to say that I completely LOVE the cover of the book.

I liked this story,the first few pages hooked and reeled me in and I couldn't put the book down. I wanted to hate Sea Witch but I just couldn't bring myself to do it because of the circumstances of how she became the witch. Then there is the mer prince,who I also felt sorry for but it's not like his life is awful. and lastley there is poor Miriam who loses what she has always wanted because she didn't know what she was getting herself into,even after being warned.

I love how the author goes into great detail all throughout the book,painting a fantastic scene. I liked how the book ended and I hope to read more by this author. all in all i gave 'Dreaming of the Sea' a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
