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.
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?

yet all the characters do. To me, that added an extra layer of mystery
as I was left to piece things together.
The characters were very
well presented and rounded. Especially Bailey. What wasn't there to like
about her? She's flawed, she loves the Lord, and she has a common
struggle I know I have- seeing yourself the way God sees you. That
little flaw allowed me to relate to her on a level I don't with some
Speaking of other characters, I really loved the
McKenna family. And Landon. :-) Piper caught my heart instantly and Gage
and Kayden weren't far behind.
There isn't much I have to say about the setting, except for the fact it
really works well with the McKenna's job and the plot. Alaska is a
