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.
I loved this book! It was so good!
From the very beginning until the very end, the author kept me intrigued.
There was murder. There was mystery. There was kidnapping. There was arson. There was love!
I completely enjoyed the characters and was enthralled with the setting. I can't even imagine living somewhere that having a boat to travel from island to island is as common as owning a car for transportation.
The mystery was just mysterious enough to keep me guessing. And I love when I guess correctly :)
I can't wait to read the next book by Colleen Coble!
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review as part of a
Litfuse Publicity Blog Tour.
