If you love reading suspenseromance then you will enjoy this one. Great twists and turns to keep you guessing.
Mermaid Moon incorporates characters and locations from some of Colleen Coble's previous contemporary romantic suspense novels, some of which I've read and some of which I haven't. This meant several of the (many) characters introduced in the early chapters were recurring characters from previous novels, which I didn't know. I found the number of characters confusing, but this perhaps wouldn't have been an issue if I'd read all the previous books (and read them recently. Like, not read 100 books since). The characters and plot were interesting enough, but I did find the story a little predictable. The identity of the evildoer was pretty obvious from the start, although the motive was less obvious (and felt almost contrived when it was finally revealed). I also guessed the other big secret long before it was revealed, which took away from the suspense. In contrast, the big mysteries were never properly answered. Why did Mallory run away? (I didn't find the reason given convincing.) Why did she marry so quickly after leaving? Overall, I found Mermaid Moon to be a solid suspense novel, but lacked the spark of originality I've seen in some of Colleen Coble's earlier novels. Thanks to Thomas Nelson and NetGalley for providing a fee ebook for review.
