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

Mermaid Moon is the second book in Colleen Coble's Sunset Cove series. I had the pleasure of reviewing the first book in this series, The Inn at Ocean's Edge, last year. Readers who enjoyed that book will enjoy seeing Claire again in Mermaid Moon, as a friend to Mallory.
The romantic suspense in this novel starts early on, and takes many twists and turns through the book.
The mystery aspects of the book are compelling, and make this novel move quickly along. It was enjoyable reading how Mallory and Kevin worked together to solve the mystery.
Mermaid Moon is also an inspiring novel about grace, second chances, and forgiveness. Colleen Coble has a deft way of interweaving inspiration, mystery, and romance.
I enjoyed Mermaid Moon, and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a smartly written romantic suspense novel.
