Happy Dreams at Mermaid Cove sees Marie Laval create one of the reads of the summer

Happy Dreams at Mermaid Code is the newest release from author Marie Laval. It’s a lovely read that plays on the desire to escape the world for awhile.

From the big city to a little yellow mobile library on the Isle of Skye …

When Jenna Palmer agrees to the new position of mobile librarian on the tiny Arrandale peninsular of the Isle of Skye, she knows she’s signing up for difficult working conditions and mediocre wages. But Jenna needs to get away, and a little yellow mobile library called Buttercup could be her escape to happier dreams …

However, whilst Jenna can get to grips with foggy island roads, local mermaid legends and even big purple monsters, she never expected to have to contend with a boss as grumpy as Daniel McGregor, or a young book lover as enthusiastic as his niece, Katrina.

Arrandale might represent Jenna’s safe port in a storm, but could she and Buttercup also become a beacon of hope to Daniel, Katrina and the entire island community?


Happy Dreams at Mermaid Cove is a lovely read. It’s heartfelt and stirs your emotions. The characters all have depth and are very easy to connect with. It also makes you want your own Buttercup and to escape and run your own mobile library. You also really feel the atmosphere of the village as Marie’s writing is extremely vivid and descriptive.

This is absolutely the perfect story to curl up with in your back garden while topping up your tan this summer.
