Sometimes lifes most precious treasure lies at Dangerous Depths.
Leia ditched a promising medical career to settle on a secluded island of Hawaii. She ditched Bane, too, and hes come to the island to find out why. Hes also in search of a fortune rumored to lie offshore. But an act of sabotage that pushes Bane closer to Leia plunges them both into a tangle of emotionjust as a series of threatening events grip the island.
Theft, a friends death, a bizarre intruder, hints of a second treasure . . . and even murderhow can they sort it all out when everyone on the island has something to hide?
Tony's death makes Leia more determined to help Tony's pregnant widow find the treasure ship, but somehow a missing Hawaiian archaeological treasure, blamed on Leia's father, becomes entangled with the ship's treasure. Someone breaks into Leia's home, kills an elderly friend, who is taking her to the treasure and secretly courting her Down's syndrome sister, Eva. With a volcanic eruption brewing in the area of the treasure ship and Eva's kidnapping, time is running out for Leia and Bane to find the treasure.
As much as she fights against it, Leia's love for Bane grows. She fears, though, that his controlling nature will replicate her mother's, and that she will never be able to give him the children he wants. Her inability to win her mother's love and her birth defect of a cleft lip have stolen her trust in God.
As Bane fights to find the treasure and keep Leia's family safe, he finds he must relinquish some of his own control that has prevented him from showing those he loves the real man God has meant him to be.
Coble has written another fast-paced suspense story set in the beautiful and romantic Hawaiian Islands. The glorious setting almost becomes another character as the humans and Nani the dolphin explore the ocean depths for the Spanish galleon while nature threatens.
The author draws her characters well. The plot twists cover the identity of the murderers. Suspense readers, especially female readers, will enjoy the romance and excitement of Dangerous Depths. Debbie W. Wilson, Christian Book Previews.com
