Book Review: Submerged by Dani Pettrey

From a plane crash to murder, deep-sea diving to dune buggy racing, and betrayal to forgiveness this romantic suspense keeps you turning the page to it’s satisfying end. In this debut novel, Submerged, author Dani Pettrey’s characters have real life flaws that make you care what happens to them.

Here’s excerpt from the back cover:

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 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.

Submerged is a tale of forgiveness, love and grace.  The small town of Yancey, Alaska makes for a beautiful backdrop to this story and the Russian history weaved throughout gives it a rich depth. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this Alaskan Courage series and I give this book 4 stars.

I have not received any payment for this review other than a free copy of this book from Bethany House.
