Mermaid Moon (Sunset Cove, #2) 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.

My Review


Mermaid Moon is the second book in this series and I recommend that you read the first, equally excellent, but this book can stand-alone.
Can you imagine getting a call from you father as he is dying? Then trying to reach him as fast as you can, with the hope that you can save him. This is basically what happened to Mallory fifteen years ago, and now she is returning home under similar circumstances. Last time she felt responsible for the death of her mother, and now her father’s last words were to find her mother.
Strange words from a dying man that lead us on an adventure to save her and her daughters lives. Someone is really out to wipe out this family and to hide their trail, and around every corner is new danger and surprises.
This book really flows and I had to keep reading and enjoying, sometimes with my heart in my throat, to find the answers here. There is so much going on and so many surprises, and you won’t see most of them coming. I really enjoyed this book and read it because I love Colleen Coble’s book. You won’t be disappointed here!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.
