Submerged by Dani Pettrey~~A Bethany House Book Review
WOW! The author had me from the first word to the last. If you like mystery/ suspense stories you’ll definitely will want to add Submerged by Dani Pettrey to your reading list.
Set in Yancey, Alaska, this fast paced novel keeps the reader riveted to their seat. The cast of characters are ones that you’ll want to embrace right away. They are real, with real problems, flaws, and abilities that add to the genuineness of the characters.
Add in Alaska’s Russian history, unsolved murders, Russian cabal, a sunken island, underwater cave diving and a dash of romance and you have an amazing story. And a perfect debut for Dani Pettrey.
I think I need to move Submerged to the top of my list for the best book I’ve read this year, and if I could I would give it 10 stars, but a solid 5 out of 5 will have to suffice.
I will be looking forward to the next book in the Alaskan Courage series!

About the Book:
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.
