Submerged by Dani Pettrey * Book Review


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.

  Submerged the debut novel by DanI Pettrey and is one amazing book. Submerged is book one in the Alaskan Courage series.
I know you will hear many great things about this wonderful author.
  I love this book because of the suspense, romance and the depth of Christianity that is shown.
  At each turn more things happened to keep me reading and enjoying it .  The suspense kept building through the story and the climax was just super. The apprehension couldn’t have been better.
  Another thing I loved about Submerged is the love Cole and his family have for each other. Both of their parents are dead, but Cole and the others stayed together and became a stronger family.
  Bailey just couldn’t forget the past and the mistakes she made, even though she has since become a Christian and loves the Lord dearly. She thinks she’s not worthy to have friends or family. Near the end Cole tells her how much God loves her and how He died for her. It’s just a precious story and I highly recommend this book. Can’t wait until Dani Pettrey’s second book in the series comes out. It’s about the youngest sibling Piper and it sounds fantastic.
