Review – Submerged by Dani Pettrey

A new favorite!

Seriously – my current all-time favorite!

Dani Pettrey’s Submerged grabbed hold of me, forcing me into my deepest fears. Tweet This!

After her vivid depiction of an underwater rescue, Submerged stayed glued to my hand until my eyelids insisted they close. But the moment I woke, my thoughts stirred back to the story and I carved out the nearest opportunity to finish her book.

Oh my gosh!

Here is the spin from the back cover:

A sabotaged flight. Two murdered divers. A single clue—a grainy image of sunken treasure.

Dive Rescue Captain Cole McKenna has never worked a case like this, but who he’s working with may prove more dangerous than the assignment. It’s been a lifetime since Bailey mangled his heart. Now she’s back in town and he needs her expertise to track down the illusive treasure.

Professor of Russian Studies Bailey Craig vowed never to set foot in Yancey again, but when her beloved aunt dies, she has no choice. Her plan of attack is simple: return for Agnes’s funeral, get the family business ready for a quick sale, and then put Yancey and all the heartbreaking memories wrapped up in it behind her for good.

Cole walking through her door, asking for her help on a murder investigation, wasn’t part of her plan, neither are the feelings he’s resurrecting—feelings best left dead.

Bailey agrees to help for the sake of the victims, and travels with Cole across Alaska’s rugged terrain and deep beneath its coastal waters. As the case escalates, so do their feelings for one another. Unfortunately, not everyone is willing to let go of the past and just when Bailey thinks she can’t take it any longer, the case shifts in a new and extremely personal direction, fastening her in for its duration.

Racing against the clock and a rising body count, Cole and Bailey fight to find the treasure and uncover the hidden history at the root of it all. But will they be too late?

I can tell you if you enjoy romantic suspense, especially of the Christian flavor, this is going to be one of your favorite books, too!

And the second book in The Alaskan Courage Series, Shattered, comes out in February 2013, but you can get a sneak preview by signing up for Dani’s newsletter.
