Submerged by Dani Pettrey

Book Description:
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?

My Thoughts:
I completely enjoyed this book.  Bailey has to go 'home'.  Not because she wants to, but because she has to.  She is determined to only stay as long as she has to and get out before her past catches up with her again.  God it seems has other plans in mind when Bailey winds up having to stay in town and even helping solve a crime.
This author has a wonderful writing style.  It kept me glued to the pages as we learn not only about the two primary characters, Bailey and Cole but about the friends, family, and inhabitants of the small Alaska town.  Bailey's past is hard to deal with and like many with a past, she would rather forget it but that isn't possible.  The best part for me was seeing if the characters could move past the past and have a future.
I rate this a 5/5.  Wonderful start to a promising new series!

Thank you to Bethany House for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
