When I vacationed in Maine last summer one of my thoughts was that the Maine coast would be the perfect setting for a mystery novel. Not that I experienced any of the twists and turns that Mallory Davis, the central character in Colleen Coble's Mermaid Moon experiences, but that there was so much that would make for great detail in a mystery. Colleen Coble took all of the atmosphere and land and sea scape of Maine for Mermaid Moon.
Mermaid Moon has all of the plot needed for a fast paced mystery, characters that held my interest and romance. The novel begins with the death of Mallory's father and we follow her path back to Mermaid Point, where she grew up. I especially enjoyed the parts of the story that deal with Mallory's family and issues in her past.
Mermaid Moon is the second novel in the Sunset Cove Series. I haven't read the first book, The Inn at Ocean's Edge, but I'm putting it on my to-read list. I very much enjoyed the setting and characters, so I'm very pleased Mermaid Moon is part of a series.
Thank you all for your kind comments about "Coffee Light and Mysteries Noir." I've fixed the link here and it's now a quick hop over to "Coffee Light." I've also started a Facebook page for "Coffee Light," where I plan to post items of interest about mystery fiction and authors, including giveaways.
Amazingly, the second largest blizzard in New York history is rapidly disappearing and there's so little snow I am even back in sneakers. My boots are cleaned and back in the closet. I hope everyone else is digging out, too.
As ever, thanks for visiting and take care.
