Mermaid Moon is a great addition to the Sunset Cove series. It can stand alone from book one in the series, but there are some crossover characters that make appearances in this book so it is fun to have read book one, The Inn at Ocean’s Edge.
The romantic tension in this story was fabulous! Mallory and Kevin have some serious and painful history to overcome, yet the sparks of attraction began early on in the book. I loved the progression of their relationship and the hurdles they had to overcome.
I also really enjoyed the mystery and suspense thread that ran throughout the entire book. I had some suspicions about who was causing all of the trouble and why, however, I was pleasantly surprised that the author really did keep me guessing regarding certain important characters and motivations.
I really liked the setting of this story, which is on the coast of Maine. The author does a great job of weaving in descriptions of scenery and local customs without weighing down the story. It definitely enhances it.
I enjoyed Mermaid Moon from start to finish and look forward to the next in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
To move forward past a life of shame and confusion, Mallory Davis must go back to Mermaid Point to find out who murdered her father in Colleen Coble’s new book, Mermaid Moon. 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’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.
