by Colleen Coble
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.

It seems that my Kindle is suddenly flooded with Colleen Coble’s books and I’m not complaining at all. You’ll be seeing a lot of reviews of her work coming up here in the next month. She does a fine job of writing romantic suspense!
This is book 2 in the Sunset Cove series. I’m not reading them in the right order – the first one is The Inn At Ocean’s Edge, which I’m reading presently – however, each story is complete in itself.
Let me tell you that like the author’s Sea Grass Pier that I read and reviewed a while back, Mermaid Moon had me completely absorbed and I didn’t welcome interruptions to my reading of it! The plot was fantastic and the underlying story of love, forgiveness, second chances and grace made it a very memorable tale.
(I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.)
