Book Review-Sea Witch-Carol Ann Kauffman

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Aliens have been landing on Earth and Dr. Laura Martin has been studying them at The Touchstone Institute. There are strange things happening in the Atlantic ocean Which Dr Martin has noticed-but can't quite figure out yet. Then employees start quitting or just disappearing.

Needing an assistant she ends up hiring Scott Connor-after he worked for free for a couple of weeks to prove that he really would do anything and everything Dr. Martin wanted.

This book is (hopefully) more fantasy then anything else. The ending will leave you wondering what comes next--I certainly hope that Carol Ann Kauffman intends on making this a series!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Dr. Laura Martin, Chief Extraterrestrial Life Scientist at The Touchstone Institute of Oceanographic Research, noticed troubling but subtle changes in the Atlantic Ocean. Before she could make sense of it all, her longtime assistant abruptly walked out. Laura hired young, handsome Scott Conner to be her personal assistant. Mayhem ensued, mainly because of Zara, the mermaid/siren/monster in the basement of the Touchstone Institute, who eyed on Scott as her possible mate in a plot for total domination of planet Earth.

“The Touchstone Institute of Oceanographic Research is the most fantastic, exhilarating place on the planet to work. It is high energy, exciting, sometimes maddening, often frightening, heart pounding work. It’s not a job. It’s a lifetime commitment. It gets in your blood. It grabs you by the throat and possesses you, body and soul. And it is work. If you’re not prepared to work your ass off day in and day out, weekends, holidays, your birthday, and your mamma’s birthday, leave now.”
