After a harrowing experience with an obsessed patient, oncology nurse practitioner Leigh Weston needed a change. She thought she'd left her troubles behind when she moved home to Carrington, North Carolina, and took a job in the emergency department of the local hospital. But when someone tampers with her brakes, she fears the past has chased her into the present. She reaches out to her high school friend turned homicide investigator, Ryan Parker, for help.

Ryan finds satisfaction in his career, but his favorite way to use his skills is as a volunteer underwater investigator with the Carrington County Sheriff's Office dive team.

    Eep! Squeal!! Thud!!! I'm in a discombobulated frenzy of excitement over this new series by Lynn H. Blackburn. Not only am I smitten by Beneath the Surface, but I'm all aflutter just contemplating the future Dive Team Investigations books! That's because Blackburn has done an incredible job of introducing team members with unique personalities that already have me clamoring for answers. Like what's up with Gabe and Anissa?! Inquiring reader minds want to know, Ms. Blackburn!

    There is so much to love about this book but I'll get the one big negative out of the way first before I start waxing poetic. Ready? The worst thing about this romantic suspense is that the pages run out! Like, seriously, I'm blissfully reading along alternately swooning and cringing and occasionally shoulder-checking when -- snap -- just like that, it's over. Way too soon, even if the ending is all toe-curling sweetness. Insert disgruntled sigh here (heavy enough to cause my bangs to stand up on end.).

    At least the author leaves us with a glimpse into what's coming up in In Too Deep which provides some consolation and not a small amount of anticipatory hyperventilating! If you love the kind of romantic suspense series written by Dani Pettrey, Lynette Eason and Irene Hannon, you are going to become a huge Lynn H. Blackburn fan!

    So, the things I love about this book. The fact that Leigh is Chinese American because I am looking for diversity in my fiction. She's a spunky nurse with a huge heart for her patients. And she's been harboring a secret crush on Ryan since her brother used to bring him home in their high school days. That's a great foundation for building a realistic romance in the midst of danger and intrigue. Especially since Ryan was interested in Leigh way back then too!

    And I love the way Blackburn balances the romance and the suspense with flashes of team camaraderie and humour. I soaked up every delicious word! And the dive team angle is a refreshing addition to this genre. This is the kind of story it's easy to get immersed in -- ha! no pun intended. A taut and gripping pager-turner I found impossible to put down...even when I reached the end!

    (note: review says four stars because it is posted also on Goodreads, where four stars is "very good.")

    Well, it's not what I expected, but it was definitely interesting! I thought the diving part would play a larger role in the story, but it only is featured at the beginning. Leigh is drawn into the story when the dive team needs to use her lake access to remove a murder victim from the lake. But pretty soon the action ramps up when someone makes an attempt on Leigh's life, very nearly succeeding and landing her in the hospital.

    So that was twist number one. This tale takes the cake for twists, which kept me guessing all day long while reading it! Though I was quite busy, I was able to finish reading it in two sittings simply because I had to know what happened next.

    I have to say, I loved having an Asian lady as a main character! Leigh was adopted from China as a child and raised in North Carolina, and her brother was adopted from Brazil. I liked this a great deal! All too often, Christian fiction tends to feature characters that look like they came from Maine, the least racially diverse state! I'm not one of those that wants every book to force diversity where it doesn't fit, but this was a nice treat. However, I found myself wishing that Blackburn had described Leigh to us more carefully, because I kept catching myself thinking of her as Vietnamese in feature.

    Predictability: Well, very little, other than in the romantic interest! The killer is a slippery one and hard to think ahead of.

    Content: Okay, so this one got really near the edge for me. If you don't care for really creepy and determined serial killers, make sure to read this one in the daylight! It's quite intense and the killer does mutilate victims' bodies.

    Christian content: a storyline of coming back to God after one's faith has been shaken.

    Overall, a solid four star read and a series I will be continuing. Thanks to the publisher for a free review copy.

    This book was a new author for me. All I can say is that I will be on the lookout for more of her books. There was edge of your seat suspense. It kept me guessing right up to the end.

    I was given this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.

    This is the first book in a new series and the first book I have read by this author and I loved it. I look forward to many more romantic suspense books by this author. I really enjoyed the banter between Leigh and Ryan. This book wouldnt let me put it down. This had many twists and turns. I received a copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
