ABOUT THE BOOK

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 THOUGHTS

O, if you ask me, I will tell you Mermaid Moon is a page-turner. It had me guessing and craving to find out the culprit. Not only for the crime committed, but for what happened between Mallory and Kevin? Why was coming home to Mermaid Point  so painful? What happened all those years ago? Who are these people, and are there more than what we read on the surface?  Will Mallory be able to stay alive long enough to find the answers she needs, and for a second chance? Is she the only one hoping for a second chance?  One after another, twists kept popping up that didn't change course of the novel, but added an enticing element of surprise and inclination to get to the bottom of things.

This is my first novel by Colleen Coble (I know, surprising!), and I can assure you it won't be my last. The rest of the series (this is book 2) will promptly go on my TBR list. Even though this is Book 2, it can act as a standalone, but for some characters, their storyline does seem to carry through and I'm interested in reading more. From Mermaid Moon alone, I can tell Colleen is a wonderful storyteller, combining settings, character backgrounds and development and plot swiftly together as one novel that will have readers wanting more, even staying up whee hours in the night.  Highly recommend.
