"Submerged," by Dani Pettrey

"Submerged," by Dani Pettrey

Bailey Craig vowed never to set foot in Yancey, Alaska, again. She has a past, and a reputation--and Yancey's a town that doesn't forget. She's returned only to bury a loved one killed in the plane crash, but then dark evidence emerges and Bailey's own expertise becomes invaluable for the case.

Cole McKenna can face dangerous rescue dives. He can face the fear a murderer may be threatening his town. But facing the reality of Bailey's reappearance is a tougher challenge. She broke his heart... but doesn't seem to be the same girl who left Yancey ten years ago. And he's not the same guy she left behind.

Racing against the clock and a rising body count, Bailey and Cole must move beyond the hurts of their pasts to work together until the truth of what is hidden in the depths finally surfaces.

Never read a book by this author, but after this one I'll be looking out for her books, and can't wait for the second book in her "Alaskan Courage" series.

This book had the right amount of mystery and suspense; the right amount of romance and the right amount of faith in it's pages.  The lead character's Cole and Bailey  were perfect, and the book introduces you many more characters, that I hope will feature in her up coming books.

I enjoyed the Russian History aspect of the book, and that it was set in Alaska, a place I would love to visit.  One of my biggest gripes with books is the way they end; I had no problem how this book ended, it all made sense and it left you wanting more.

Stars out of 5 : 5 and a very solid 5 at that.  I was hooked from the beginning and needed to know what was going to happen next.  A really, really good book, very well worth while reading in my opinion.

This is the type of review that nearly guarentees my enjoyment of a book...with still recouperating from surgery I'm reading quite a lot! just finished A Big Little Life by Dean Koontz about his and wife Gerda's beloved Golden Retriver, Trixie Koontz...a wonderful read, simply wonderful
