Publisher's Summary

Adamantly opposed to commercial whaling, Miranda happily trades her fin for human legs when she's given the opportunity to work as a maid for a man in charge of public relations for a large Japanese whaling firm. Miranda soon finds out that she loves pedicures, favors bikinis over clamshells, and that she's a natural disaster when it comes to human housework.

There's so much about the human world she doesn't understand. Why does Justin Lockheed, her handsome boss, make her heart race and her knees weak? And just what is she supposed to do when it comes time to choose between advancing her cause and destroying his career?

    "Short, Sweet, And Clean!"


    I listened to Mermaid Inc. in between my longer audios, and this lighthearted story was the perfect length to listened to in one sitting.

    Miranda the mermaid is on a mission to save whales. First, she has to drink a potion that will change her fins to legs. Second, she has to infiltrate Justin's home and pretend to be his housekeeper, while his regular housekeeper is away. Third, she has to get information on one of Justin's clients who's in the business of whaling to put a stop to it. It sounded easy enough to Miranda, but she soon learns housekeeping isn't her forte, or cooking, or doing laundry. Not to mention, her attraction to Justin. Good thing she has Goldie the talking bird to help her out, and guide her.

    Justin's temporary housekeeper isn't anything he expected, in fact she's a disaster when it comes to doing chores, but she brightens his day. When she offers to help him with his newest client because of her in-depth knowledge as an oceanographer, he agrees. He doesn't know her real agenda, but when he things he's lost Miranda he will do whatever it takes to get her back.

    Carly Robins did a fabulous job with the narration. I loved Goldie's character!

    Overall, for a short, clean story, it was well written. I won a copy of this audiobook from the author.

    "C Mickelson = Romantic Comedy"
    What did you love best about Mermaid Inc.: A Romantic Comedy?

    I enjoyed Ms. Robins' performance of Goldie. Great! I listened to most of this audiobook with earbuds. Several areas of the audio I could hear mouth/jaw clicks, but it didn't distract from the overall listening experience.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Mickelson has a wonderful grasp of the Romantic Comedy genre. This is not the first Mickelson book that I've had the pleasure to listen to and it won't be the last. Family friendly and a fresh listening experience.

    I received a copy via audiobook boom in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Super cute"

    I recovered this book complementary in order for an honest review. I thought the book was super cute. Had a nice little plot. Was well thought out and executed. A few places had a few places I thought stretched it too much. But it worked. It's lite and it's short. There is no sex no steamy scenes leading up to it either. Just sweet. So if your looking for all that stuff this is not it. On the plus side it also had no bad language and I could listen to it with my children in the room.

    "A Funny Romance"

    This was an enjoyable book. The performance was excellent. I laughed out loud multiple times. This book was different from any book I've read/listened to before. I recommend this to anyone who wants to have a good laugh and sweet romance. I received this audio book as a gift from the author.

    Any additional comments?

    Mermaid Inc by Caroline Michelson was a great read. Miranda is against commercial whaling. She trades in her fin to become a human to help the whales. This was a great book about one person's determination to do the right thing.

    "A cute romantic mermaid story"

    Mermaid Inc is a cute modern romantic comedy about a mermaid on a mission to save the whales who falls in love with a human. The story is a bit silly, but it's all good fun.

    The narrator does a good job bringing the story to life.

    I received this audiobook as a gift. This is my honest and voluntary review.

    "great clean read"

    I was gifted this audio ARC from the author for a honest and unbiased review
    Miranda is a mermaid on a mission to infiltrate Justin Lockheed's home to get information to help bring down a huge whaling conglomerate. Justin hates his new assignment, the water and everything about it, but this campaign will make or break his career. So he does. He meats Miranda and falls for her.
    This is a short and very cute listen. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves clean romance but don't expect it not to have holes in the plot.

    "A Modern Version of the Little Mermaid"

    Think a little mermaid plus washing machines, environmental consciousness, PR agencies, a whole lot of humour, a bit of magic. and, viola! You have this book. This is a clean, short story with a definite fairy tale factor and an assured HEA. Light and quirky, it was fun to listen to and demanded very little from it's listeners.
