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.
I’m fast becoming a fan of suspense novels. When it’s blended with a bit of romance like Mermaid Moon, I like the genre even more.
This book had enough twists and turns to rival any roller coaster ride that I’ve ever taken!
Mallory and Kevin were characters that I really liked. I haven’t read the first book in the Sunset Cove series, “The Inn at Ocean’s Edge”, but it was easy to pick up that they had a past relationship. They are about to embark on another journey that neither of them could have imagined!
I loved the descriptive scenes and I imagined the boats speeding across the water.
Mallory discovers so much when she returns home. Much more than she ever imagined and I’m glad to have taken that journey with her…..even if it did take me on a wild ride!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for an honest opinion which I have given.
