Book Review: Mermaid Moon by Colleen Coble

Synopsis:


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.

Review:


This is the 2nd book in the Sunset Cove Series (The Inn at Ocean's Edge is book 1).

Colleen has a way of putting the reader right into the middle of an episode that is about to lead to family drama, and a search- be it for the truth, love, or friends lost, but the formula is one that delights the reader and leaves you wanting more! Which is why I was thrilled she brought out book 2 in this series!

In this story Mallory isn't just looking for the truth of her father's death, she's looking to find te eMallory she left behind years ago. What may seem like red herrings end up being jigsaw pieces that were not so obvious, until the end. Which means this book is a real page turner and another Coble book not to be missed. The book is stand alone and book 1 is not required reading, though it is great meeting characters again!! Be sure to pick this one up for some fun Spring reading!

Check out a GREAT interview with Colleen about this book and the series HERE!
