Fish Out Of Water by Ros Baxter

If you’re a Urban Fantasy fan you are going to love Fish Out Of Water. This is an entertaining read with a strong heroine you are going to love from the start! Dirtwater’s straight-talking Deputy Sheriff Rania Aqualina is witty and fun and lives for her work but has a lot on her plate: a nicotine addiction that’s a serious liability for a mermaid, a soldier-of-fortune ex who’s hooked on her Mum’s brownies, a gorgeous, naked stranger in her shower, and a mysterious dead blonde with a fish tattoo on Main Street. 

Heading home to Aegira for a family wedding, Rania has a sinking feeling that’s got nothing to do with hydroporting seven miles under the sea and everything to do with the crazy situation. Now, if she can just steal a corpse, get a crazy Aegiran priest off her case, work out who the hell’s trying to kill her, and stop sleeping with the fishes, she might be able to unravel the mysteries. And maybe even save her own ass while she’s at it.

It sound complicated but this books reads like a charm. With its realistic world building, great characters and paranormal beings, Ros Baxter pulls you in to the world of Rania and her investigation all the way. Maybe Fish Out Of Water was here and there a little too much focussed on the investigation instead of some secondary lines or characters but never less not too much that bothered me to much.
But it would have been nice to see a little more of romance or have read some more about the stranger in the shower!

Fish out of Water is the first book in a trilogy about Aegira, an underwater kingdom based on the historical Norse legend of Aegir. I am very curios what book 2 of this trilogy will bring.
