Waiting on Wednesday: Deep Betrayal

Deep Betrayal (Lies Beneath #2)
Author: Anne Greenwood Brown
Publisher: Random House
Expected Publication: March 12, 2013


It's been thirty days, two hours, and seventeen minutes since Calder left Lily standing on the shores of Lake Superior. Not that she's counting. And when Calder does return, it's not quite the reunion Lily hoped for. Especially after she lets her father in on a huge secret: he, like Calder, is a merman. Obsessed with his new identity, Lily's dad monopolizes Calder's time as the two of them spend every day in the water, leaving Lily behind.

Then dead bodies start washing ashore. Calder blames his mermaid sisters, but Lily fears her father has embraced the merman's natural need to kill. As the body count grows, everyone is pointing fingers. Lily doesn't know what to believe—only that whoever's responsible is sure to strike again. . . .

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed Lies Beneath the mermaids from Lake Superior were unlike any I had ever read about. I'm excited to see what happens with these recent murders and what happens between Lily and Calder!


  1. The cover reminds me a little of Mara Dyer!
