Submerged (Alaskan Courage Book 1) is Dani Pettrey's debut novel and it is a winner! When I saw the cover and read the description I knew I HAD to have it! Submerged is a fast paced story that has a little bit of everything in it: Mystery, Romance, History, family relationships and Christian Values. The characters in this novel are well developed and I really felt like I knew them like friends. Dani Pettrey gives these characters a real life feel that I could feel myself relating to them. Dani Pettrey writes with authority on diving, boats, Alaska ,and its history. The setting of this story is written so vividly that I felt like I was right there in the book, taking in the scenery. This book is hard to put down and it truly kept me guessing until the end. Dani Pettrey is on my must read list! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Suspense Fiction, it will not disappoint!
