Book Review - Submerged by Dani Pettrey

A sabotaged plane. Two dead deep-water divers. One single clue.
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.

My review: I wasn’t sure about choosing this book, it is not my typical read. I found it a little hard to stay focused in the beginning, and didn’t find it any easier as I continued. I found the story a bit rocky actually and the religious conversations seemed contrived and not at all natural. I don’t think I would recommend this book.

Hey Kim,

That book I reviewed was one of my own I bought. I haven't had a book list from Julie for June either.

I loved the hiking book also, mind you it's about as far as I'll get when it comes to hiking!!!

Hope you're settling into your new job,
