Mermaid Moon (A Sunset Cove Novel Book #2) by Colleen Coble.
Little description: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.

My thoughts: 4 stars out of 5
For me, Colleen Coble is a great mystery writer. All the novels and novellas that I have read before Mermaid Moon had been the fast and fun rides while I was finishing the reading. Those were historical fictions, but this one is a mystery and sort of thriller… Even though the characters and the events are great and outstanding, it took me longer to read the novel, and with the mixed feelings I say some pages were skimmed instead of smooth word-to-word reading. Overall I enjoyed the book… the mixture of murder, kidnapping, hunters, and the broken heart will jump from the pages… “Accidental” fires and the threats lead to more secrets that brought past to the present. Survive and beat the odds is what Mallory does after she stepped on her childhood land…
