Mermaid Moon Book Review

I was looking for a new book to read when I found Mermaid Moon (A Sunset Cove Novel) by Colleen Coble.  I am not normally a mystery reader but there are some that interest me as long as they aren't really scary.  I decided to take a chance and I am glad that I did!!

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.

I enjoyed this book and the interesting plot twists.  I wasn't sure what to expect but there was stuff going on  at Mallory's home and Mallory's childhood home which was all intertwined.  The different scenery kept me wondering where they were going to be next.  I most liked the interesting scenery with the romance twist.  When Mallory goes home and immediately goes back to the childhood friendship with Kevin, it brings up the past relationship that ended badly when she lost her mother, their baby and broke their engagement.  There were tons of surprises while looking for her birth father and mother after the hint from her father's dying words.  You have to pick up the book to find out what she discovered and what problems that brought with it.  I hope that you check out this book for yourself.  It was my first book by Colleen Coble and I look forward to reading more by her.  I hope that you pick it up at your local library or bookstore soon.

** I was given a copy of this book for my review from the publisher.  All opinions are my own.
