Bailey Craig has a new life, a new reputation and new friends who know nothing about her past. Nothing could persuade her to return to Yancey, Alaska, or so she thinks, until she receives word that her aunt has died. Despite her fears, Bailey packs her bags and returns to Yancey where everyone knows her past and no one will believe that she has changed. Shortly after arriving, things begin to unravel leaving Bailey with questions about her aunt’s death. By the time it is clear that her aunt was murdered, Bailey realizes that she might be the killer’s next target!
Author Dani Pettrey spins a nice tale in “Submerged” that kept me turning pages. My only quibble with the book is that it was like going to a party where you don’t know anyone and your host fails to make introductions. There are a lot of interesting characters in Yancey but they are a little hard to sort out. Eventually you figure out who is who but it takes a little effort.
I’d recommend “Submerged” if you are a fan of mysteries with a twist of history. It’s a fun read with a historical twist and an unexpected ending. Tuck it in your bag if you have an afternoon at the pool or beach ahead of you and let this Alaskan mystery take you to a cooler climate.
This book was provided to me by Bethany House for this review.
