By Colleen Coble
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 ON THIS BOOK
Wow! This book kept me the edge of my seat while I was reading it! Mallory and her dad wasn’t close, but when she rec’d a phone call from him just before he died saying, ‘find mom’ she was really confused. Her mom passed away years ago. Mallory has no choice but to return to Mermaid Point to try and figure out what happen to her dad. A trip back into her past, including childhood sweetheart Kevin O’Connor takes Mallory on a whirlwind trip that has Mallory digging into parts of her past, someone starts threatening Mallory, as well as her daughter’s life.
There is so much going on in this story, so many twists and turns. When I thought I had it all figured out, something else happens to throw me off again, and I loved it! Colleen Coble does such a fantastic job of creating characters that I connected with as they became part of the story, and realistic scenes that makes me wish I had been a detective! I love Ms. Coble’s books, and this is one of her very best! If you enjoy fast pace suspense thrillers, Mermaid Moon is a fantastic book you will want to read!
