Mermaid Moon (Thomas Nelson, January 2016)
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.

Colleen CobleUSA Today bestselling author Colleen Coble has written several romantic suspense novels including "Tidewater Inn," "Rosemary Cottage," and the Mercy Falls, Lonestar, and Rock Harbor series. Her books have sold more than 3 million copies.
I first have to admit that author Colleen Coble is one of my favorites. Her books have wonderful stories and her characters are like very real people. In "Mermaid Moon", Mallory Davis has left her home fifteen years ago and has not come back once. Her father has a mail boat route but dies mysteriously while working. Mallory forces herself to return to find out what really happened. All the while she is convinced that he was indeed murdered. Kevin O'Connor is her childhood sweetheart and is now a game warden. He thinks that she is probably right. Kevin does not want to get involved with her again, she left him years ago and he does not want to be hurt. Haylie is Mallory's daughter and they both start getting death threats. Now, there is a lot more that Mallory has to figure out before someone else gets hurt.
Who wanted her father dead? Who is after her and her daughter? I really liked this suspenseful story and I loved the interaction of the characters. I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book by Litfuse Publicity Group and all opinions are my own.
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.
