Don't Speak by Katy Regnery is now LIVE and FREE with #KindleUnlimited! >>

"Swoon. Sigh. Beautiful, gorgeous love story. You renew my faith in true love, Katy Regnery. And a brilliant take off on the little mermaid. People are going to love this one." --Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author of Archer's Voice


Amazon Universal:


From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a new twist on a beloved fairytale.

In this modern retelling of The Little Mermaid, a fisherman's daughter from an Outer Banks island untouched by time, meets the son of the North Carolina governor at a fancy party where she is working.

Laire, who wants more from life than her little island can offer, is swept away by wealthy, sophisticated Erik, who is, in turn, entranced by her naiveté and charm. The two spend a whirlwind summer together that ends on the knife-point of heartbreak and forces them to go their separate ways.

Years later, when fate finds them together once again, they will discover the terrifying depth of the secrets they kept from each other, and learn that shattered hearts can only be healed by a love that willfully refuses to die.

All novels Katy Regnery's ~a modern fairytale~ collection are written as fundraisers. 10% of the e-book sales for in March and April 2017 will be donated.

About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

My Review

I was lucky enough to get this book in exchange for an honest review.

I started this book on day and my family was home so reading became impossible. It was difficult to get immersed into the world that Katy created. So I tried again and again but every time I sat down I would get distracted. So my husband went out of town and my son went to play video games and I read and I didn't stop until 1:30 in the morning. 

Laire lives on a small island in North Carolina and it's like stepping in to a different era. Girls stay and marry locals and produce more locals. Laire dreams of more than working at the family shop and making babies. She wants to go north and design clothes, but how is she supposed to get out of there without breaking her family apart.  Her daddy sends her to deliver some blue crabs to one of the dingbatters (outsiders or tourists) home and she meets the most beautiful boy in her lifetime. Knowing that nothing good will come out of it, she decides that she has to see. Even if it's just for the summer.  Their own rules, they can have the summer and then go back to their lives.

Erik has gone to the coast of North Carolina for a long time, his parents have a house there and this year is his 21st birthday.  He's bowled over by the beauty carrying crates up full of crabs. She's the prettiest thing he's ever seen and he wants to know more about her.  It doesn't matter if she's a local and he's the governors son, she's different and he wants more time. Their summer is perfect until it isn't. Real life intrudes and he doesn't know how he's going to be able to see her after classes and practices resume.

Life is always complicated when you come from different backgrounds. Laire realizes that she was living a pipe dream, hoping that she could be a part of his world and not face any consequences at home. It all comes to a head and Laire sends Erik away. They couldn't work it out anyway right? He asks her to come to Thanksgiving but does she?

Look, I could tell you all about it but really it would ruin the whole beautiful thing.  This story is full of ups and downs and some sideways things thrown in. I felt like I could see it all in my mind, the way that Katy weaves a story is just magical. I loved Laire and Erik. A few other characters but I'll let you decide who you like and love or hate.  I ran through all of the emotions reading this book. Joy, sadness, elation, happiness, despair. Katy Regnery is a master at pulling all of the feelings from you and making it ok, soothing the rough edges.  Grab your copy today! I know I'll be buying the print version for my shelf. After you read, leave a review to show your love!
