Praise for Book One of the Series
“I burned through The Inn at Ocean’s Edge in one sitting. An intricate plot by a master storyteller. Colleen Coble has done it again with this gripping opening to a new series. I can’t wait to spend more time at sunset cove.” – Heather Burch, bestselling author of One Lavender Ribbon
“Coble’s second Sunset Cove novel takes readers on another exciting journey. The game of cat and mouse keeps you involved in the intrigue, while the romantic tension between Mallory and Kevin provides just the right counterbalance.” 4 1/2 starred review (RT Book Reviews)
'Coble shifts her Sunset Cove series into overdrive with a second installment driven by murder, arson, kidnapping, and deception… The pair’s rekindled romance is the only predictable event in this story. Though Coble sets up an intriguing mystery, the plot lacks integrity with weak motives, confusing details, improbable scenarios, and faith-based references that are random and disjointed. In the end, the convoluted story raises more questions than it answers, leaving a lot open for the next installment.' (Publishers Weekly)

I am always looking for new authors and I enjoy series books. I have wanted to read Colleen Coble for some time as she is prolific and has quite a following. Perhaps Mermaid Moon was not a good choice.
Writing seemed to be geared to younger readers. The characters were not well-developed, reactions were often superficial and poor continuity made some situations confusing. The author's constant reference to eye color was unneccessary.
The main character, Mallory, tells everyone about the case, even strangers.
Some parts of this book were just silly. The sheriff suggests that Mallory‘s very normal parents may have been involved with the mob. The portrayal of Mallory's captor is shallow and totally lacking nuance, not scary at all. He left her with a gun and one bullet and said he would give her a week to starve to death or use the bullet to end it. What??? Then he sets fire to the place.
The author continually used the phrase, “The guy...”, “the guy...”, “the guy...” Why not “the stalker...”, “the prowler...”, etc.
This book has the feel of assembly-line writing.
Book Summary: 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.
Review: Really enjoyed this story. Unfortunately I started out confusing this series with the Hope Beach series. I finally did get straighten out due to Claire and her sister. I found the rustic life in Maine to be fun and as rural as Maine truly is. I enjoyed the characters, although Mallory tended to hold onto the past a little too much. Her neighbor Carol was well written. The book had some twists and turns I was not expecting which makes it a must read in my book. I liked the theme of forgiveness that was running through the book. Kevin was great, the best character of all. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. I thought that finding her birth father was exciting and that her father truly had changed life in Christ. While the books are great and Colleen Coble does have a theme of Christianity running through it she has decreased the intensity of it and Mallory’s birth father was the strongest Christian in the book with Kevin being 2nd. I really loved that part. It was not preachy just a factual change of life. Those are something that can speak the loudest. I hope her books continue to be that way.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Thomas Nelson for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
I don't know how Coble puts so many twists and turns in a book and then pulls them all together for a satisfying ending.
Mallory and Kevin had a lot of issues to work out. Mallory had to realize that God was not punishing her. He loved and forgave her. She had to forgive herself. Another good book I was totally engrossed in.
