All I have to see is the name Colleen Coble to grab my attention and make me want to read something. She just never disappoints and her books get better and better. I love when I’m familiar enough with an author to know I want to read everything they write instead of blindly searching through authors I’m not familiar with for my next good read. Mermaid Moon is her latest and in my opinion, greatest!
The thing I loved most about this book is it wasn’t predictable! There were a few things where I saw where they were going, like the relationship between Mallory and Kevin. Then there were others though like the mystery behind her parents untimely deaths.
There was one HUGE secret I never saw coming that isn’t revealed until the last few chapters. Oh how I love to be shocked in a book. It’s so rare! I can’t give you any hints about that one but trust me, it’s worth the read!
I liked the realness in the characters and that they seemed like normal people. I get so tired of books where everyone is perfect and they are beautiful with incredible jobs and everything in the world going for them. That’s just not reality and takes away from the characters being authentic. Mallory and Kevin both have issues from their past including failed marriage, divorce, single parenting, bratty teenager, child with a handicap and parental issues between them. Now these are people I can relate to!
I connected with these characters and felt invested in them and their future. I really like romantic suspense because the suspense adds such an interesting dimension to a romance that might otherwise be more boring. Mermaid Moon really has it all! Enter to win a copy below along with some other amazing prizes!
About the Book
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.
