Mermaid Moon 
"Mermaid Moon"
Colleen Coble

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.

"Mermaid Moon" is full of unexpected twists and turns.  A page turner that will keep you up reading at night. This book is filled with suspense and leave you guessing until the very end.  

This is book two in Colleen Coble's 'Sunset Cove' series.   While you won't be lost with the main part of the story, there are some characters from book one that carried over into this book.  Their story line isn't a big part of this book, but I read the first book and had already forgotten their story, so it was difficult to keep up with that part of the book.  I do recommend that you read book one first.

While I enjoyed this suspenseful story, there are some things that I'm still confused about. Mainly the criminal part.  Maybe it's just me.  It was late when I was reading the end.  Also, there seemed to be a lot of loose ends, but they could be concluded in book three.
