while it’s refreshing to read a UF that doesn't involve vampires, shifters or the Fae being hunky warriors with long ears I've fallen less in love with Willow and her not always smart decision making skills. This was enjoyable, but nothing too exciting.

Synopsis

Graphic novelist Willow Tate is a Visualizer, able to draw images of beings from the realm of Faerie and possibly to “draw” them from their world to ours in the process. Maybe she shouldn’t have decided to make her latest book about the god from Faerie whom she’d “rescued” when the fire bugs came to her for help. Or maybe she just shouldn’t have given him a part fish/part fowl sidekick. Had the creature shown up in Paumanok Harbor because she’d drawn it, or had she drawn it because it was calling out to her for assistance?
 
Either way, more weird things are happening in the Hamptons: robberies, embezzlement, rare bird sightings, rogue waves, and dolphins keeping the surfers out of the water. And though Willow swears she has nothing to do with any of it, none of the locals really believe her. Except, of course, the hero of her latest book—patterned after the new man in her life, a handsome Harbor veterinarian—happens to be a sea god....


From the Paperback edition.

she never actually does very much, and the big climaxes aren’t so much experienced as discussed at length

Celia Jerome gives us a likeable, quirky heroine in Willow Tate. The story moves quickly and is chock full of adventure, romance and humor.
