    OK. I confess. I love Fred. She's sarcastic, caustic, and bad-tempered. She's almost sex feet tall, has green hair, and grows a tail when in water. If you haven't yet read MaryJanice Davidson's series about Fredrika the Mermaid, you don't know what you're missing. This trilogy is very funny, and "Fish Out of Water" is the final book in the series and a fitting ending for Fred.

But between press interviews as representative for the recently revealed Undersea Folk, hormonal and sexual issues trying to choose between Thomas and Artur, having to be 'best man' in her best buds wedding with all the attendant pain in the butt appointments, meeting her long-lost, banished, traitor to the Undersea Folk father, and a possible plot to overthrow (again) Artur's father the King...well, she's not having a very good week! There's not a lot of sex in this series. There IS, however, an ocean (hah hah) of humor in these books. Fred is certainly an atypical heroine in every way. I'll be sad not to have more of her life and times to look forward to.

Still - I wish I could let things just roll off my back like she does. At the end of this book she does something and I think it would haunt me for eternity if I did it - even though she did the right thing in the situation - but she never reflects on the situation and just shrugs it off. I guess I could get pissy at Mary Janice Davidson for not giving Fred any depth - but I think that is part of her charm and truthfully I would not want her any other way. She wouldn't be Fred if she were written differently. So I finished this book with a heavy heart knowing I would not be able to read about Fred and her adventured with the undersea folk. Thankfully Mary Janice Davidson is still writing her Betsy books and I content myself with those books.

    Fred remained her abrasive and socially-awkward self. I really like that about her. It made her a fun character to read about, especially in a genre (romance) that is inundated with heroines who are universally beloved by all except (or in some cases including) the antagonists. Instead, we have a half-human, half-mermaid who does not get along that well with humans, and had Undersea Folks who didn't know her hating her on sight - or did. It was great also to see that Fred were quite aware about Fred remained her abrasive and socially-awkward self. I really like that about her.

Instead, we have a half-human, half-mermaid who does not get along that well with humans, and had Undersea Folks who didn't know her hating her on sight - or did. It was great also to see that Fred were quite aware about her faults and her effect on other people. She was a little miffed that the Undersea Folk did not receive her warmly but more because people tend to dislike her after getting to know her (which was fine with her), and not before (which she thought was unfair). Fred is still waffling in the third book between the Prince Artur and Dr. Thomas Pearson, and makes decisions for the wrong reasons again, which was a little frustrating and annoying so it was a relief to have her finally make a decision that brought her the most happiness. We are introduced to her biological father. I was actually a little surprised by how quickly Fred seemed to accept him since she did not seem to think too much of him in the first two books. Her willingness to believe that her biological father had changed made me a little skeptical, especially considering how cynical she was about the U.S. Nonetheless, a point made by Thomas's father, Captain Pearson, did seem to explain this i.e. she was raised by hippies and thus reflected their views with regards to the U.S. and in the case of her biological father, her mother only had good things to say despite having known the merman for however long it took to conceive Fred (one night). Regardless, Fred's defense of her biological father was still a little naive and hard to believe. When Farrem reveals his true self, however, was what really flummoxed me. How could someone who had seemed honestly repentant and loving toward his only daughter turned into Mr. Hyde? (And I clearly see how hypocritical I am in thinking Fred too gullible in accepting dear-old Dad.) And Fred didn't feel a sense of betrayal or maybe even shock? Same with her two housemates who had lived in the same house as Farrem for at least a few days. It was so startling and didn't seem believable. And Farrem calling everyone worm was kind of comical. I think that that was what the author was trying to achieve but it didn't really seem to work out that well with me. The ending with Farrem was a bit disturbing, especially considering that Fred had no feelings about what she had just done. I suppose that regrets would have made the book seem more serious but it was still uncomfortable. Fortunately for me, Fred had made her decision and got her HEA.

Review does contain some spoilers. Fred finally made a choice to date Prince Artur, but she still can't get marine biologist Thomas out of her head. In addition to still being confused about what her heart wants, Fred has also been chosen to play media spokesperson for Undersea Folk now that they have come out in the open. Throw in her long-lost father suddenly popping back into her life and her best friend planning his wedding and everything just gets more complicated. Finally, this series is over and there is no more to read. Fred finally makes an official choice, but how she comes to that choice is crazy. The romance between her and the two male leads still doesn't see complete. There were not enough moments between Fred and Thomas to make the switch from Artur to him seem believable. In fact, the fact that Fred was even thinking about Thomas when she was with Artur and thought Thomas was dating another mermaid seemed like a big red flag that Artur wasn't the one she wanted anymore. What bothered me the most was that only the reader seemed to notice those red flags. Everyone else was telling her make her choice and pick one, but this book seemed to be pushing her towards Thomas. If there was supposed to be a triangle it was not made obvious. Artur returned to being the arrogant man he was in the first book. It seemed that once he won Fred, or at least in his own mind, then he didn't care anymore about her feelings or her differences. It was like he forgot that she wasn't like him. It was quite annoying as in the second book he was starting to seem as though he actually cared about Fred. Thomas seemed to grow a bit in this book, which was actually quite nice. We do also get a couple chapters in his point of view, which is something we never get for Artur in all three books. We see why he seems so distant and why he has been away so long isn't because he doesn't care, but because he doesn't feel he is worthy. In this third book I was finally happy to see something from the other characters in the love triangle outside of Fred and why they do what they do, something I felt was missing for the other two books. We get introduced to Fred's father, Farrem, a traitor who was banished for wanting to overthrow the monarchy over 30 years ago. He was actually the best character in this book, at least until the end. I felt like he actually cared about his family and Fred and felt regret for what he had done, only then in the end he turned around and threw it all away. It seemed like a cop-out. It also didn't help that we were introduced to this issue near the end of the book and it was wrapped up in a matter of just a few chapters. Overall, while I was happy with Fred ending up with who I wanted her to end up with and who I felt felt, since the first book, she should end up with, the book series overall didn't seem well planned out. Fred was hard to relate to and didn't seem to ask her age or even close and spent way too much time thinking about her own problems rather than others. If it didn't affect her directly she probably wouldn't be involved. The love triangle didn't develop properly in my mind and I never felt like there was actually any feeling between Fred and either of the two men. I don't think I'd read this series again.

    Ahh... it is time to bid adiós to Fred as Fish Out of Water is the final book of the Fred the mermaid trilogy. A true shame really, as I feel I am just warming up to the brash green-haired Fredrika. I am an absolute sucker for happy endings and I can't complain about this one. I had hoped Fred would pick Thomas (the human one) eventually, and even though it only finally came about in the last book, at least I got the ending I wanted.

Throw in a bare-bones mystery about missing merfolk and a finale appearance by a deranged mer-father and we have a story cooking. While not the greatest novel that I've read (even by MJD standards), I must say that I have enjoyed the mermaid trilogy and Fred and the gang will be missed. Who knows? They may appear again one day; I don't think this series is on its last leg - or tail! - yet.

This, of course, endears her to all of the mermaids who hated her because of what her father had done in the past. Ta-da! There's the story in a nutshell. Trust me, the book isn't much longer.

    A satisfying end to the series. I was wondering toward the end how on earth she was going to wrap the story up in so few pages, but it worked out. I'd say this one was on par with the first two books in the series, so if you liked those, pick this one up. I am a little sad to be leaving Fred behind (though it is a good ending point for the series, and it was well done), and I'm not sure I'll continue with this author now. Her writing is fine, but vampires hold little interest for me. (And yet the A satisfying end to the series.

    Another disappointing short-change from Davidson. If the font weren't so huge, and the spacing so absurdly stretched, this would barely qualify as a novella. At this point, Davidson is probably as stupidly rich as her unrealistically, and uniformly wealthy characters. I don't understand why she can't spend the time to actually write a full novel, a fully developed story. Is she really so greedy that she can't invest the time to create a complete story?

    enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. Fred, the main character is so disgruntled and confused its fun to watch her with two love interests and trying to figure out if she wants to step into the love game. Some of the scenes do not flow very well and the resolution is a little abrupt for my taste but overall I enjoyed this book enough to pick up the third in the series.

Although we want to know what else happens, it is not because Davidson did not finish the story correctly, but more because we are all not ready to leave these characters behind. This story picks up a few months after the last installment. Fred has agreed to marry Artur and become Princess of the Black Sea while also becoming the new face of the Undersea Folk. She is to handle all the interviews and answer all the questions that humans might have. Did I forget to mention that Jonas and Dr. Barb are getting married, at Fred's house in the Caymen Islands. If Fred doesn't have enough to deal with the King has also asked Fred to help him discover why a large number of his subjects have gone missing, not dead but missing. To make matters worse, Fred's long-lost father decides to show up to the party as well. If Fred doesn't kill someone it will be a miracle. Davidson does and amazing job of finishing up this series. We are kept guessing all the way until the end of the story. We have our suspicions, but every time we get close to a final decision the tables are turned yet again on everyone and we are back to square one. The same as in the other two books in the series, Davidson keeps everything up beat and light-hearted through the entire story. .This is the only poirt of contention I have with this series. Fred goes through some major life situations in this book, but she has no comment or feeling about any of them. Everything seems to just roll off her back and she keeps moving forward. When ultimately the decisions she made were the right ones, there should have been some feelings or emotions to go with them. Davidson chose to just gloss over them or ignore them all together. It does seem very Fred like, but it also makes her seem more like a robot than a living and breathing merperson. We are missing out on a new aspect of Fred's character that could have easily been explored in a few paragraphs. I am now a Davidson reader for life! Although I do have some hang ups about this book in particular it does not take away from how much I enjoyed the series as a whole. Again this is the perfect easy beach or pool read for the summer.

And here we are with book three… and one I raced through in a matter of hours I enjoyed it so much and when done, like always, wished the series had been extended into more books. As I really love the characters, enjoy the story lines and possibilities out there… but did feel this book was rushed, had too much crammed into it and was then chopped off, neatened up and finished as the required word count was met. (Oh Ms Davidson, please don’t hate me, I am a HUGE fan!) But, yeah, there was just something about this series that felt like the author’s heart just wasn’t in it. Maybe too busy making the Queen Betsy series so awesome? I don’t know… but it was something. I did like the twist and (sorry) red herrings thrown into this story, and maybe it is just me being greedy, but I felt it wrapped up all too quickly and posted itself off as finished before the readers had even gotten a chance to get into it. I did say it only took me a few hours to read, right? As with all three books, the characters were great, very engaging, funny, annoying, etc. All the right mix needed in a supernatural series. The plot was a bit jumbled and seemed to take a long time to get going… hence me reading all night long. ;-) But a good book, I wish it wasn’t the final, and well worth a read. Would I recommend this book to others? Yes I would. Again, like with book two, I would mention this is the third book in a series and would recommend people buy and read the first two books as well as ‘Fish out of water’. Would I buy this book for myself? Been there, done that and can’t say I’ve ever regretted doing so. Any fan of Ms Davidson’s would be silly not to own the three books in this series. They aren’t really stand-alone reads, so do ensure you get all three. In summary: Final book in a good series – and one I feel could do with a few more books in it, but maybe that’s just me being too greedy? Seriously something lovers of the lighter side of a supernatural mystery series should buy as they would enjoy.

It is a fact that throughout the series the main characters complain a lot, Jonas and Fred. A lot happened in the book almost in a fast motion where the story was tied up in a nice little bow. The story could be altered or added so that more was told like Fred's kids. They probably don't get the mermaid gene since she's a hybrid but their story would be interesting to have her as a mom and crazy Jonas as Uncle.

    This was the best out of the series in terms of plot progression and forward movement. Unfortunately the series ends just as it was starting to get good. That being said, this is still a great series for fluff reading. It's fun. The characters are enjoyable. And Fred is rather bitchy, which is a very nice change of pace from the oh so perfect characters that often pop up in books. All in all, reading the series was a fun way to spend part of an afternoon. This was the best out of the series in terms of plot progression and forward movement.

    The final book about Fred, the mermaid, was an improvement from the 2nd book. Fred wasn’t as annoying and it was nice that the author didn’t drag out the whole - who will she choose drama. Jonas gets the woman of his dreams, there’s some interesting fights, and Fred stays true to who she is. Not a bad way to wrap up the series.

    It was absolutely entertaining. I really love fantasy story but I didn't know that I would also love it with the blend of comedy in it. The characters are easy to grasp on, my most favorite is Jonas the comedian one. And I can't believe I read again a last book of a trilogy series without reading the first two books. Overall I love it! It was absolutely entertaining. I really love fantasy story but I didn't know that I would also love it with the blend of comedy in it.

    Fish Out of Water ends the Fred the Mermaid trilogy and tops it off gloriously. It was much better than the two previous ones. Fred finally begins to pay attention to her feelings. The gang with all their snark is in full force. There is a wonderful ending climax and what Jonas says at its conclusion cracked me up. 4.5 stars.

    The final book in the Fred the Mermaid trilogy continues with Fred finally meeting her Undersea Folk traitor bio dad, dealing with her best friend's upcoming nuptials to her boss and still trying to decide between Prince Artur and Dr Thomas Pearson. Oh and to top it off Undersea Folk are mysteriously disappearing! Just as fun to read as the first two!

    I like the story and the ending, but I have a problem with a few typos and inconsistencies in the book (both with earlier books in this series and with what is mentioned in the last 2 Betsy the Vampire Queen books). Had these been addressed/fixed before printing, I would have given it 5 stars.

    Finally, closure! And for a while I abhorred the choice, but in the end, rejoiced! It was a long time coming, but I DID, in the end, get the ending that I wanted. Funny, sexy, witty, and charming.
