Litfuse Review: Mermaid Moon by:Colleen Coble
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.
Mallory Davis left her home fifteen years ago, when her mother died. So full of pain and regret, she never planned to return. But when tragedy strikes, she finds herself back at Mermaid Point. Her father mysteriously dies, causing Mallory to lean on the one person she has known all her life, Kevin O'Connor, the game warden of Downeast Maine.
Soon they begin noticing things aren't quiet what they seem. When Mallory's home is broken into and her bestie is held at knife point, both Kevin and Mallory know that Mallory and her daughter are no longer safe. Boarding up the windows and stay in her father's house seem like the best idea. But maybe it's time to go after the bad guy and find out whats really going on. With Kevin's childhood sweetheart in danger, he will stop at nothing to find the criminal and bring him to justice. Can he keep his own child safe in the process?
Kevin and Mallory work together to solve the mystery behind her father's death and along the way she may just find the one thing she's missed to most, her old self and the love of her life.
Mermaid Moon is book two in the Sunset Cove series. This book was a wonderful addition to this series. I love how the author always has a way of drawing you into the story. I can not wait to read the next book in this series. I wish September wasn't so far away.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
