Mermaid Moon by Colleen Coble - Book Blog Tour Stop and Review

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:
I wasn't sure what to expect with Colleen Coble's latest book - "Mermaid Moon." With the sweet title and beautiful cover, I figured it would be a sweet romance.

Boy, was I wrong!  This book is one rollercoaster ride of a suspenseful mystery that will absolutely glue the reader to the pages! Be prepared to stay up all night with this one, and don't say I didn't warn you!

"Mermaid Moon" is the second book in Coble's "Sunset Cove" novels, but first time readers (such as I) can enjoy this novel as a stand-alone. There are some references to previous characters who are tied in with this new story, but the back-story is easy to pick up.  The main couple in this book are two star-crossed lovers who find themselves draw toward each other again. Mallory Davis and Kevin O'Conner were once engaged but circumstance tore them apart. Now, Mallory is back in town and in terrible trouble and it's up to Kevin to help her untangle the mess she has found herself in. Murder, arson, kidnapping - there is a lot going on in this story and Coble's masterful storytelling skills keep you entertained while you're puzzling out the mystery!

Another star of this book is Coble's setting of the islands off the Maine coast is just breathtaking, and she captures the essence of the area and the personalities of the people who live there very accurately! And the addition of the strong faith of the characters is a refreshing bonus.

If you are looking for a spine-tingling, captivating novel to warm you up this winter, "Mermaid Moon" will be just the book you're looking for.  I highly recommend it!
