Mermaid Moon by Colleen Coble

By now it should come as no surprise that the latest Colleen Coble book is a hit with me. Mermaid Moon is an intricate mix of romance and suspense with neither element overshadowing the other. In my opinion, it takes a truly talented writer to weave together romance and suspense without one being a weaker part of the story than the other. While this is the second book in the Sunset Cove series it is a stand alone novel but if I were you I'd read the first one (Inn at Ocean's Edge) just because it contains its own jaw-dropping element of surprise that you don't want to miss.

In Mermaid Moon, Mallory and Kevin are the two main characters with a history that dates back to their youth. Although Mallory has stayed away from her hometown for over fifteen years she can't help but rush back after her father's mysterious death. As with Colleen Coble's other books, this is when things get exciting. The more that Mallory and Kevin learn, the more dangerous it becomes for both Mallory and her daughter Haylie. If you're like me, you'll think you've figured this one out but then Colleen Coble will surprise you. I hope you enjoy this book and are looking forward to the third book in the series (Twilight at Blueberry Barrens) that should be out later this year!

About the book:

Mermaid Moon (Thomas Nelson, January 2016)

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.
