Mermaid Moon by Colleen Coble

Mermaid Moon 
by Colleen Coble    
Thomas Nelson
Mystery/Suspense 


Litfuse, Thomas Nelson, and Colleen Coble are excited to announce the campaign for Mermaid Moon.
Mallory's mother died fifteen years ago. But her father's last words on the phone were unmistakable: "Find . . . mother."
Shame and confusion have kept Mallory Davis from her home for the last fifteen years, but when her dad mysteriously dies on his mail boat route, she doesn't have any choice but to go back to Mermaid Point.
Mallory believes her father was murdered and childhood sweetheart Kevin O'Connor, game warden in Downeast Maine, confirms her suspicions. But Kevin is wary of helping Mallory in her search. She broke his heart---and left---without a word, years ago.
When Mallory begins receiving threats on her own life---and her beloved teenage daughter, Haylie---their search intensifies. There's a tangled web within the supposed murder, and it involves much more than what meets the eye.
As answers begin to fall into place, Mallory realizes her search is about more than finding her father's killer---it is also about finding herself again . . . and possibly about healing what was broken so long ago with Kevin. She just has to stay alive long enough to put all the pieces together.
Note: Mermaid Moon is the second in Colleen's Sunset Cove series. You can find out more about book one, The Inn at Ocean's Edge, here.

Here's my review of this wonderful romantic suspense read:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Colleen Coble and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Mermaid Moon" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

“Mermaid Moon” by Colleen Coble is the second novel in the Sunset Cove series that reads beautifully as a stand-alone story.  This solid suspense read draws Mallory Davis back home to Mermaid Point, Maine after a fifteen-year absence.  Receiving a telephone call from her dying father is enough to start Mallory’s blood pumping and mind racing, but when her father tells her to find her mother, who Mallory has believed to be dead for 15 years, she must figure out the mystery.

Her former beau, Kevin O’Connor, is reluctant to help Mallory piece together the events of past and present to solve the long-time mystery and her father’s recent murder.  But the investigation intensifies when Mallory and her daughter, Haylie, begin receiving threats.

This novel will keep you up long into the night, so pick the earliest part of a long weekend to start this wonderfully engaging romantic suspense read!
