Review : Mermaid Moon by Colleen Coble
Book Description : "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."
Mermaid Moon is the second book in the Sunset Cove series by Colleen Coble, that take place in Maine. You do not have to have read the first book, The Inn at Ocean's Edge, in order to enjoy Mermaid Moon because they are two separate stories, although there are familiar characters from the Inn at Ocean's Edge, and even a repeat character from Denise Hunter's new Summer Harbor series. Mermaid Mood is a great combination of romance and suspense. It is a page turner that will keep you guessing until the end, but is not so complex that it leaves you feeling confused along the way. The characters are well developed and believable. I loved it and recommend it for anyone who enjoys Christian suspense novels with romance tied in along the way.
