“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 Moon is harboring secrets that will keep you guessing.” Lisa Wingate, New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours

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.

“Coble second Sunset Cove novel takes readers on another exciting journey. The game of cat and mouse keeps you involved in the intrigue, with the romantic tension between Mallory and Kevin provides just the right counterbalance.” —RT Book Reviews

Review by Brittany at the Books and Biscuits Blog
Mermaid Moon follows Mallory Davis as she attempts to pull her life back together after the death of her husband. Upon receiving a mysterious phone call from her father, Mallory rushes home to Mermaid Point, a place she has avoided for the past fifteen years. Her father’s death brings up the worst moments of Mallory’s past, as well as forcing her to encounter Kevin O’Connor, the game warden who once offered her a bright future. When Mallory receives threats on her life and that of her daughter, she must turn to Kevin and the townsfolk she once abandoned to discover the truth. As the killer returns, Mallory will have to unravel the mysterious circumstances of her own past in order to solve the crime spree sweeping the once-peaceful seaside community.

Mermaid Moon takes place in the same Maine community as The Inn at Ocean’s Edge, incorporating some characters from the earlier novel in the Sunset Cove series. Ms. Coble utilizes her particular brand of romantic suspense to draw her readers into the mysterious circumstances of Mallory’s parents’ deaths.

Overall, I thought that Mermaid Moon was an enjoyable book in the romantic suspense genre. While I have not read many of Ms. Coble’s contemporary works, I found the writing style and pacing to be consistent with her other books. Personally, I would describe the pacing of Ms. Coble’s writing as being somewhat slower and darker than other books that I typically read. However, she offers a well-developed storyline that depends upon a broad cast of characters to make for an intriguing overall novel. Additionally, Ms. Coble and Denise Hunter have created interconnected series (Sunset Cove and Summer Harbor), which both take place in the same area of Maine and involve a surprisingly number of connections between their characters. As I am also reading Ms. Hunter’s series, I am excited to see how these series continue to intersect!

Special thanks to The Fiction Guild and Thomas Nelson for the advanced copy of Mermaid Moon!
