{{Book Review}} Mermaid Moon by Mermaid Moon | Mallory's mother died fifteen years ago. But her father's last words on the phone were unmistakable: "Find . . . mother."

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 Review*
It's no surprise that Colleen Coble is one of my favorite Authors. When I was given the chance to sign up to review this book, I jumped at the chance. I not only wanted to read this book, but I am always searching for good books for my 12 yr old to read. She loves Mystery/Suspense just as much as I do. "Mermaid Moon" is the second booke in Colleen's Sunset Cove series. You can find out more about book one, "The Inn at Ocean's Edge" by going  here.

As soon as I received the email stating that I would be reviewing this book, I ordered the first one on amazon so that I would be caught up once this book arrived.what I loved the most about "Mermaid Moon" is that it isn't as predictable as I thought! There were a few things where I saw where what was going on and then there were other things that I NEVER saw coming.

There is one HUGE secret that I never saw coming that isn't revealed until later in the book. It's not often a book "shocks" me, but "Mermaid Moon" did just that!  I'm not going to give away what happens(in either book), but I will say that I was not disappointed! 

If you are looking for a great mystery/suspense to read, you might just want to check this book(and the first one) out! 

Advance Praise:
"Second chances, old flames, and startling new revelations combine to form a story filled with faith, trial, forgiveness, and redemption. Crack the cover and step in, but beware---Mermaid Point is harboring secrets that will keep you guessing." 
---Lisa Wingate, bestselling author of The Sea Keeper's Daughters

"Veteran author Coble has penned another winner. Filled with mystery and romance that are unpredictable until the last page, this novel will grip readers long past when they should put their books down. Recommended to readers of contemporary mysteries."
