Sri is looking for this one! A series, with a heroine that feels guilty, and a hateful stepbrother… I’ve not read it, but I am very curious as to which one it is!

She asks:

Hi Maryse,

I am searching for this series for almost one year but can’t find it. I read it 2 years back. I don’t remember title or author of the series unfortunately. I just remember bits and pieces of story. And I just read first book of the series. Hope you can help me. So here is the story I remember,

It’s about a girl who is in high school. She comes back from summer vacation where she loses her little cousin in drowning. She and her cousin both are drowned but she is saved somehow and she feels guilty of her cousin’s death.

Her aunt and uncle don’t blame her but she still feels guilty. Her parents are divorced. Her dad is remarried and he has a step son who doesn’t like her. He is rude with her when ever is visits them.  And that’s it I remember… I have searched everywhere but can’t find it. It is definitely released before 2014. Hope at least you can help me.

Thank you

Anyone have an idea?

Hi I’m wondering if you know a title of the book i read about a year ago. It was a boss-employee romance and the heroine starts a romance with a man she was meeting at a bar with her boss and colleague. I think the man is a client of theirs and has issues because his childhood friend and his brother’s girlfriend drowned and he couldn’t save her. The heroine he was in love with also drowned because of some dangerous threat while they were at a work conference doing an important project in Los Angeles. She was brought back to life by him performing CPR on her. He also referred to her as his “mermaid” and i think that her name was something that started with an M, but I am not sure. I also remember that the heroine lived in Texas originally but worked in New York. Please help me find it!
