We review books. Most review books have been provided by author, publisher or public relations firms.
We are not required to write positive reviews. But we try to find positives in each review, and we pick books that interest us.
We receive no compensation for reviewing. Some folks consider a book to be compensation, so, we need to disclose that we receive books to review.
It would be difficult to review a book without the opportunity to read it.

Colleen Coble's Mermaid Moon ~ Reviewed
Mermaid Moon Colleen Coble Series: A Sunset Cove Novel Paperback: 352 pages Publisher: Thomas Nelson (January 12, 2016) Language: English ISBN-10: 1401690289
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.
Colleen Coble’s Mermaid Moon, sequel to The Inn at Ocean's Edge begins with massive intrigue and murder.
Mallory is facing life alone with her teen daughter after her husband dies. Without life insurance. While trying to sell some of her handcrafted jewelry she receives a phone call from her father. Her already complicated life unfurls into a storm unlike any she has faced.
As she returns home for the first time in 15 years she finds that her heart has never really left, and that someone wants to keep a secret deeply buried and will stop at nothing to do just that. Edge of seat reading.
Set in Folly Shoals and revisiting some characters, It was fun to see Claire and Luke settling into life. If you loved The Inn at Ocean’s Edge, you’ll love Mermaid Moon because there is another multi-twisted plot involving murder. And, of course, an equally sweet love story.
