I have been given the opportunity to do some reviews on some books from a few different publishers. Some of them do not quite fit into the focus I have for Living Infuzion, but obviously have some good information. Here are some of my perspectives on some pretty good books! Enjoy!

Submerged - Dani Pettrey

Bailey Craig left the small town of Yancey Alaska to escape a sordid past and vowed never to return.  When her beloved aunt dies in a plane crash, Bailey is forced to return and settle the estate.  Determined not to stay a moment longer than necessary, she does what she can to avoid seeing people in the town, including the one person she hurt the most, Cole McKenna.  But when two deep sea water divers turn up dead, and questions begin to arise about her aunt's trip to Russia, Bailey's expertise in Russian history become invaluable to the investigation.  Will Bailey & Cole be able to find the murderer in time, or will they become one of his victims?

Submerged is a fast paced, action packed adventure.  Dani Pettrey weaves a wonderful story full of mystery and suspense, that grabs you from the opening chapter and doesn't let up.  It was very hard to put this novel down!  I found it very hard to believe that this is Mrs. Pettrey's first novel.  The theme of God's redemption and forgiveness is woven so seamlessly throughout the novel.  Bailey is a woman with a rather sordid past who has been unable to truly forgive herself and move on.  Cole carries guilt about how he treated Bailey when she needed him the most.  I loved reading about the different members of Cole's family and look forward to her exploring these characters in future novels.  I highly recommend this book to any lover of a good mystery. You won't be disappointed!  I eagerly await the next book in this series!
