Publisher's Description

"Submerged is romantic suspense that will keep you up at night!"--Bestselling Author Dee Henderson

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?

Publisher's Weekly

A man and woman who were once a couple confront their past in a brush with a treasure-seeking killer in this steadily paced thriller. Bailey Craig left her small Alaskan hometown 12 years ago and vowed she’d never return. But when her beloved Aunt Agnes dies in a plane crash, she’s forced to revisit the place—and some of her demons. Meanwhile, a former boyfriend, Cole McKenna, runs a local diving shop and helps police whenever they need his underwater expertise. When the authorities find the body of an alleged tourist who rented from his shop and another not long after, he realizes he needs Bailey’s expertise in Russian to help decipher some of the clues. With the help of a 19th-century diary, will they find the murderer or only end up in harm’s way? Pettrey’s debut novel is a thoughtful attempt to capture both love and suspense in this intricately plotted mystery. While the writing is clumsy at times, the novel introduces the reader to some memorable characters who must rely on their faith just as much as each other. Agent: Chip MacGregor.

    This review was written for Submerged, Alaskan Courage Series #1.
    Submerged, the first book in the Alaskan Courage series by author Dani Pettrey, introduces the reader to the McKenna family of Yancey, Alaska. After a plane crashes into the icy waters off the Alaskan coast, Cole, eldest of the McKenna clan, and his siblings join in the recovery efforts. When one of the victims turns out to be the aunt of Coles first love, Bailey Craig, his heart resurrects the crushing pain experienced when Bailey broke his heart as a teenager. Bailey returns to Yancey for her beloved aunts funeral albeit reluctantly. Filled with shame and regret from past mistakes, Bailey tries to keep a low profile while in town hoping especially not to run into Cole. As fate would have it, however, Cole and Bailey are reunited after the investigation into the plane crash reveals that the event may not have been an accident. Coles best friend, Deputy Landon Grainger, enlists the two for help in solving the crime- Cole for his experience in outdoor adventure sports and scuba diving, and Bailey for her expertise in Russian history. As Cole and Bailey work together to solve the mystery of her aunts murderer, barriers from past hurts crumble allowing the two to explore a love that never left their hearts. Tales of sunken treasure, family secrets, and ties to the Romanov dynasty result in a page turning adventure as Cole and Bailey draw closer to the killer and to each other.

    What I love most about this book is the theme of second chances. Cole and Baileys story unfolds with each chapter revealing the love each still holds for the other after all these years. Coles tenderness, gentleness, and patience with Bailey as she wrestles with her own demons of shame and guilt portray a beautiful, unconditional love paralleling Christs love for us. Not only do Cole and Bailey receive a second chance at love, but Bailey finally comes to realize that she has been fully redeemed and made new through Jesuss death on the cross. Her past sins no longer shackle her to a life of shame and judgement. What a poignant depiction of beauty from ashes. On a side note, I also thoroughly enjoyed the transitions beginning to occur in the relationship between Landon and Piper. Cant wait to read the next book in the series to see where the road takes their burgeoning relationship! I think Pettrey is going to be one of my new favorite authors!

    This review was written for Submerged, Alaskan Courage Series #1.
    Submerged was an adventurous and fun book to read. Dani Pettrey has written a fun fictional book. It's a suspense drama with a little romance.

    As the book progressed the suspense increased and there were twists and turns and at times the unexpected.

    I felt the plot line was good and the characters were well developed. She also did a great job in helping the reader to identify the town in which the story takes place.

    Overall, I found this to be a very good fictional book.

    I am so excited to be reviewing this book, because I know in a few days I'll have book #2 in the series! This was an excellent book, and I read it in 2 days! Submerged by Dani Pettrey is the first book in the Alaskan Courage series. It takes us to a small town Yancey Alaska (I know, who would have thought!) :p and introduces us to a range of characters, but focuses on 2 main characters: Bailey Craig and Cole McKenna.

    Cole McKenna is a search and rescue diver. He also owns an adventure tourist post in Yancey. So, when the plane carrying his friend Henry and the town's most beloved "Lady Agnes" he was immediately ready to help in the search and rescue mission. As events unfold and it becomes clear that Agnes is not going to make it, his thoughts turn to Bailey. Bailey and Cole have a past. He hasn't seen her in almost 12 years, not since she broke his heart and went on a downward spiral that absolutely killed him to watch. However, 12 years have past and he's a different man. He's determined to befriend her again.

    Bailey Craig is the niece and only family of Agnes. She is devastated at the news of her aunt's passing. She doesn't, however, want to go back to Yancey. She'd spent years after all, trying to forget her life there. She returns, with the intention of only staying a week, TOPS. She doesn't want to deal with her past, and she definitely doesn't want to see Cole, the one man she ever truly loved.

    This book is filled with suspense, mystery, and a sweet love story. As both characters struggle to come to terms with the past and all that happened between them, we see the underlying message of the book come to life. God loves us, and when we accept Him into our lives, we become NEW CREATURES! (Let me take a minute to shout right there, HALLELUJAH!) Old things are passed away, and we become like new. It also reminds us that when we hurt, we need to run TO God, not away from Him. He's the only one who can heal the hurt.

    I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading the next one!!
