About the Book
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?
It is hard to do romantic suspense right, but Dani Pettrey scores almost perfect across the board for character development, plot, setting, and message. Dani Pettrey is a visual writer that paints exquisite scenes with emotion, detail and context, but she still allows room for her readers to use their imagination and to personalize the reading experience. There was a steady (and addictive) build up of tension and suspense throughout the plot that will leave readers breathless from the action and romance. Bailey’s struggle to overcome her unsavoury youth even though she is confronted by it with each turn is evocative and realistic. Her development as a character will draw both empathy and self reflection from the reader. A fantastic debut from a new author and a wonderful take-off for a new series. The treasure hunting ends here with this must read book perfectly timed for summer enjoyment.
