Winter Reads: Mermaid Moon

ISBN: 978-1401690281; Pages: 352
I've been of fan of Colleen Coble's writings for a few years now, and I was excited about her newest novel Mermaid Moon when I signed up to review it. However, after receiving the book, I left it on the coffee table and a few other books got piled on top of it, so I almost completely forgot that I had to post a review for it for today. I can speed read when I want to and that is exactly what I had to do tonight.

Mermaid Moon is book two of "A Sunset Cove" series, but you don't have to read the first book as this is a standalone story. It centers on Mallory Davis, a woman that hasn't been to back to her hometown in Maine for the past fifteen years. Well, that all changes when she gets a mysterious call from her father that sends her home to Mermaid Point to confront her past.

Unfortunately, Mallory comes to the revelation that her father was murdered. She begins her own investigation on what events lead to her father's death and she enlists the help of an old friend, game warden Kevin O'Connor. Actually, Kevin was more than just a friend, she was in relationship with him years ago and ended up breaking his heart.

As the two try to put aside their differences to solve the case, danger lurks around every corner, resulting in Mallory, as well as her teenager daughter, Haylie, receiving death threats. To unravel the identity of her father's killer, Mallory must heal her own personal wounds and learn to forgive her past.

Final Thoughts: Similar to the first book in the series, The Inn at Ocean's Edge, Colleen Coble has creatively crafted a suspenseful mystery with a little romance tossed about. The books' heroine, Mallory, is a strong character that I instantly liked; the same goes for her romantic-interest, Kevin. While there were a few predictable moments here and there, the murder mystery plot kept me turning the pages. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reading from beginning to the end.
