Fiction Friday: Mermaid Moon

Cara Fiction Friday 4 Comments

I have loved Colleen Coble’s books for a long time. She writes gripping romantic mysteries that pull me deep into the setting and the characters’ worlds. There is always so much going on that it keeps me engaged in the writing. I think Mermaid Moon is Colleen’s best book to date.

51KqX8t5b7L._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Mallory left home 15 years and hasn’t looked back…until her father calls her as he’s dying. His words make no sense, but she is compelled to go home. Then someone breaks into her home on the mainland and it doesn’t feel safe to go back there, yet someone is out to get her on the island, too. In the midst of it all she has to confront the love she left when she abandoned the island. Kevin has his own set of baggage, including parents who blame Mallory for his choices. Both Mallory and Kevin have unresolved issues they must confront while Mallory tries to stay alive.

I enjoyed the mystery and the twists and turns. What kept me coming back was wondering whether Mallory would find answers to all her questions and whether she could accept the ones she found. Her world is completely upended even as she reaches a point of coming home.

Mermaid Moon is perfect for those who love a mystery with a strong romance, too. Be sure to continue to the end to enter the Rafflecopter because I’m giving away a copy of Mermaid Moon.

Mallory’s mother died fifteen years ago. But her father’s last words on the phone were unmistakable: “Find . . . mother.”

Fiction Friday Form (10)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.

  1. one of the most fun books I read was The Cactus Creek Challenge, by Erica Vetsch. I’ve said it needed to be made into a movie.
    I also I enjoyed Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Beth Vogt.
    But so many others too!
