It is always nice to read the second book in a series. You already know some of the characters, so it feels like catching up with old friends. The author does a great job of reacquainting readers with characters and introducing new ones with ease. Her writing style is smooth and deliberate which keeps you on your toes. I love a great mystery and this is one of the best.
Mallory is trying to reclaim her life after the loss of her husband. It is hard to move on, but she is doing her best. When she gets a phone call from her dad, she is perplexed. She senses something is not right and returns to Mermaid Point after fifteen years. When her dad dies, she must come to terms with the past . She runs into Kevin
who at one point she thought would be her future. Old hurts and memories surface and she must face them head on. Why does Mallory suddenly get death threats on her and her daughter's life? Is there more to her father's death than she has been told?
Mermaid Moon is a very suspenseful book with secrets that could tear a town apart. The web of lies and deceit are so intricately woven, you are on the edge of your seat. It must feel eerie to come back home, only to discover you don't know who to trust. The author has brilliantly given us a rich story filled with mysterious characters and weaves the lives of many together to a story you won't forget. It seems like nothing is as it should be in this quaint little town and Mallory is determined to get answers. We all make mistakes, but will Mallory be able to recover from hers?
I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild for an honest review.
