A sabotaged plane. Two dead deep-water divers.
Yancey, Alaska was a quiet town...until the truth of what was hidden in the depths off the coast began to appear.
Bailey Craig vowed never to set foot in Yancey again. She has a past, and a reputation--and Yancey's a small town. She's returned to bury a loved one killed in the plane crash and is determined not to stay even an hour more than necessary. But then dark evidence emerges and Bailey's own expertise becomes invaluable for the case.
Cole McKenna can handle the deep-sea dives and helping the police recover evidence. He can even handle the fact that a murderer has settled in his town and doesn't appear to be moving on. But dealing with the reality of Bailey's reappearance is a tougher challenge. She broke his heart, but she is not the same girl who left Yancey. He let her down, but he's not the same guy she left behind. Can they move beyond the hurts of their pasts and find a future together?

Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Suspenseful & involves "historical" sunken treasureJune 5, 2015Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Submerged" is a Christian romantic suspense novel. It's the first in a series, and it can be read as a stand-alone novel.
The Russian history aspect of the story was interesting (though it's a fictionalized, "what if" take on it). The mystery had clues that slowly uncovered a past event and helped with discovering whodunit. The suspense was created by the physical danger to a number of characters and from the emotional healing Bailey and Cole go through. The romance was about overcoming past hurts and actions, and it moved at a reasonable pace.
The Christian element was mainly a few prayers and Bailey learning to live like she's forgiven by God. There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this suspenseful novel.
KatyTennesseeGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great romantic mystery and suspenseJuly 24, 2014KatyTennesseeGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a great romantic mystery and suspense novel! I really enjoyed the characters, the setting and the story. I loved this book right from the beginning page. It was hard to put down.
The characters are real: Sweet Baileywhat a dear, broken woman. I just wanted to give her a hug. Colea hero on all levels. The McKenna familya strongly knit unit, but always welcoming to those outside of their circle. The town of Yancey, Alaskapeopled with quirky and interesting characters.
Though Submerged is a contemporary Christian novel, the Russian history is fascinating. I think it adds depth to the mystery. This story not only has heart-stopping suspense and mystery and a complex, romantic thread, but it includes many other layers. The spiritual themes of forgiveness and letting go of guilt are realistically portrayed.
Dont miss this book, if you are a fan of romantic suspense!
Little AussieAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Ready to take the plunge?June 28, 2014Little AussieAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5You would never guess that this is Dani Pettrey's debut book. Straight from the very first page, you get sucked into the tension of the plot as well as the fantastic McKenna family! Their dialogue with each other was so amusing I couldn't help laughing throughout the book (Piper is so adorable!). The characters are so real with their own individual quirks. This book really inspires and challenges you. It highlights forgiveness, redemption, helping others and how God can change us if we let Him. Can't wait to read about Piper and Landon in the next one!
If you love a good mystery, suspense that makes you hold your breath as you turn the page, and a beautiful love story then this is the book for you! A warning though, your self-control will be severely tested if you try to put this book down before finishing it!
