Today I am reviewing Mermaid Moon the second book in the Sunset Cove series, by Colleen Coble.
Here is a brief synopsis:
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.
Mermaid Moon by Colleen Coble… don’t miss this extraordinary story in the Sunset Cove series. – Tweet this!
I will admit, historical fiction isn’t my favorite genre . . . nor is it usually something I would choose to read. So when I say that Mermaid Moon by Colleen Coble is an excellent read — you can believe me.
And it’s not like I’m invested in the Sunset Cove series. I haven’t even read The Inn at Ocean’s Edge (book one), but you can just bet that I’m going to get ahold of it soon, so I can read it. Then I’ll probably read Mermaid Moon again!
Colleen knows just how to capture the reader’s attention and draw them into the story — from beginning to end. I couldn’t put this book down until I was finished reading it!
Don’t wait another minute. Get your copy today… you’re gonna love it!!!
God Bless You!
