    1. I don't usually read contemporary romantic suspense, but I decided to give Submerged a try, and boy am I glad I did. From the very beginning the setting breathed life, and I could have sworn the author herself was an experienced rescue diver because the dive scenes were so authentic. Dani Pettry knows how to do her research and weave it seamlessly into her stories in order to create a fantastic experience for the reader.Cole McKenna is a top-notch, sigh-worthy hero. A man dedicated to family, to [...]

    2. Terrible book. First of all, this should have been filed as Christian fiction. The writing was terrible and did not flow well. In many places scenes jumped between paragraphs without warning. The action scenes at the end were jumbled and hard to follow, not to mention unbelievable. The only thing even slightly good about this book was the mystery and it was confusing and hard to keep up with, too many names to remember. It appeared that the author is setting the characters up to be a series. I w [...]

    3. First posted on my blog, Legacy of a Writer.Whoa! What an adventure! I had a feeling that Dani Pettrey would write a romantic suspense that sucked me in from page one and wouldn’t let me go till the very end. And that's exactly what happened! While the suspense and tension wasn't very high in the first half of the book, things DO happen that keeps the reader going…and then I hit that halfway mark and it just took off!There is quiet a large cast of characters in Submerged. Not only does the r [...]

    4. by Andrea Renee CoxThis is a challenging review for me to write. I wanted to give this book more than three stars, and I debated going up to four throughout the book. However, the continuous lewd mentions to Bailey's past just tipped things too far south for me.Don't get me wrong: We all have sins in our past that stick in our minds long beyond receiving forgiveness from Jesus Christ. And yes, these things color our perceptions sometimes, as well as the perceptions of others. I think Ms. Pettrey [...]

    5. What a start to what is sure to be a great series!“Submerged” blends a wonderful array of great characters, gripping suspense and a romance that will the most hopeless of hearts at a near sigh. One would think from the cover that the inside of the novel would be as chilling as the outside, but actually beginning to end, this novel has to be on the easiest, smoothest romantic suspense I believe I have read. Perfect balance in story and tension, romance and suspense. Character portrayals are d [...]

    6. Friends had been telling me how great this series is for a long time, but it somehow kept slipping to the bottom of my to-read pile. I finally got to it, and it's fantastic! Bailey left Alaska, leaving her heart there with Cole McKenna and swearing never to return. When a death in the family pulls her back, she becomes involved in a police investigation that leads her into harm's way and Cole's arms. The mystery is interesting, but the characters are what make this book such a great read. The Mc [...]

    7. What a great way to discover a new author! I understand that this is Dani Pettrey's debut novel. In my opinion, she did an excellent job. This was a fast read for me and kept my attention from start to finish. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Can't wait to get my hands on book two :)Edit:Just finished re-reading this and I must say it's just as good the second time through!!

    10. I am so excited to be reviewing this book, because I know in a few days I'll have book #2 in the series! This was an excellent book, and I read it in 2 days! Submerged by Dani Pettrey is the first book in the Alaskan Courage series. It takes us to a small town Yancey Alaska (I know, who would have thought!) :p and introduces us to a range of characters, but focuses on 2 main characters: Bailey Craig and Cole McKenna.

    12. Oh my gosh! What can I say about this book but AMAZING!!!To be honest I wasn't expecting much from this book. This book was just some random book that I picked up from the library shelf to tide me off for the time being. Once I read it however I instantly LOVED it. At this moment I am impatiently waiting to get the next book in the series Shattered. I have never read any of Dani Pettrey's work before, but from what I have just recently experienced I am definitely a fan. There was just enough mys [...]

    13. They say the beauty is in the details well this book has plenty of them. Rich with Russian and Alaskan history and a scuba diving culture that held my interest, Submerged simply kept me enthralled to the end. I enjoyed a lot of things about this story, mainly because of the tension and suspenseful elements combined with history and culture. My nail-biting increased as I kept reading, until I couldn't stop and had to finish the book to find out how things resolved. I loved the under water scenes [...]

    14. I don't want to be harsh in my reviews, because I know what it takes to write a novel, produce a film, music, etc. It's very difficult. This book was a recommended Nook Daily Find, which I have found to be a good source of books. I have no faith in Christian fiction, Christian movies or any other Christian entertainment. It's as if Christian consumers have lowered their standards and anything with Christian content becomes more acceptable. Christian content does not make a book good. This is not [...]

    15. I liked this a lot more than I was expecting to! Usually I stay away from suspense and contemporary as well. But this had a plot of history weaved into the story and the meaning of the story, the struggles with faith that the main character goes through, made it very enjoyable! All in all, 3.5 stars. It was very entertaining and meaningful and the characters were awesome as well :)

    16. This is the first book in this series. I've read the latest book in the series, and now the first one. Now I just need to read all the ones in between. This is a fantastic series, great writing. Suspense, romance, light Christian fiction. Clean! Set in Alaska. :)

    17. **this ebook is now FREE on amazon, got my copy and definitely looking forward to reading it again!!**Cole McKenna isn’t like other search-and-rescue divers. He loves God, he loves living in the small town of Yancy (population 603) with his brother and sisters, and he loves adventure. Him and his family help with search-and-rescue missions, but they take it personally when rescued victims don’t survive. Cole’s best friend, Landon, works with the sheriff’s office and they work hard to kee [...]

    18. I really wanted to love this book! I lived in Alaska for around 10 years total, and loved the idea of a book set there. However, I was pretty disappointed. Frankly, it sounded more like it was set in California, Florida or Hawaii than it was Alaska most of the time. "Surfer" lifestyle--in Alaska?!? The story is supposed to take place in a fictional town on the peninsula just south of Kodiak. Um, I lived on Kodiak. Her descriptions do not in any way match what I remember. She talks of Piper and L [...]

    19. Here's my thoughts on this one: I struggled with it through a lot of it, mostly the amount of characters, a few parts I got a little bored with, I put the book down and read other books then by the time I picked it up again I'd forgotten who some people were. The ending felt rushed to me, and I'm still not sure what happened. This is also a Christian book, so there's a lot of inwardly praying to the Lord for so and so and such and such. The main character was supposed to be a born again Christia [...]

    20. I did not realize this was a Christian book - as another reviewer pointed out the publisher is known as such, but again not aware. The plot at times jumped forward, author missed opportunities to richly detail the characters, the storyline, and surroundings. I did not find the descriptions of the Alaskan setting believable. Most annoying was the lecture given to Piper about being on a date until midnight, ostensibly with a man she could not possibly know all that well. What kind of a small town [...]

    21. What a great book! This one kept me turning pages! The suspense and mystery were well done. I liked the characters right away! I really liked Cole. He has such a great heart and truly cares about people. I look forward to reading the rest of the series and seeing other relationships develop that we got a peak at in this book.

    22. Lots of bible thumping in this one.

    23. Quick recap: Bailey's beloved aunt dies after an airplane crash, leaving Bailey with her Aunt's store in Alaska. But Alaska is the last place Bailey ever wants to be again. People there are a reminder of her wild youth, of her partying and promiscuous behavior. She's now a new creation in Christ, has finished college and made a life for herself in Oregon, and simply wants to avoid everyone who will bring back all that guilt and shame. Bailey's intent is to get the store ready to sell so she can [...]

    24. This story had theperfectblend of mystery, romance, suspense and intrigue.Honestly, one of the best mysteries I have read in a long time.I loved the integration of Russian history into the mystery because it created a kind of archeological treasure hunt based on supposition, something which may or may not have actually occurred in history.The pace of the story is rapid, and at the same time, not fast enough. I really wanted to know who was behind all the murders and their motive. I really though [...]

    26. With a unique and majestic setting, Submerged offers an engaging reading experience! The characters who play their parts against such a great backdrop are wonderful - especially their interactions as a community, whether just the McKenna family community or the community of the townsfolk of Yancey. The McKenna family certainly won me over, including those members who were "adopted" into the family. What a fun, welcoming bunch!In this Romantic Suspense, the romance takes precedence - not in thril [...]

    27. I liked this one; I thought it was a fun mystery with a little romance thrown in. Bailey had a rough childhood and made some big mistakes in her teen years. It’s been ten years since she’s been home and is not looking forward to returning. Especially because she doesn’t want to run into her ex Cole. I felt bad for Bailey, she has made some great changes in her life and is definitely a different person, but she hasn’t forgiven herself for her past mistakes. Cole was a likable guy, and I l [...]

    28. I didn't go into this book with high expectations as I am not a big fan of romance books or Christian fiction. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by this book. While it wasn't in a genre that I usually prefer, I actually did enjoy reading this book for the most part. From the prologue, it drew me in and made me curious to know what was happening. I wish there had been more detail in the story, however. I felt like it just did the bare minimum of what was necessary to keep the reader i [...]

    29. After reading and enjoying “Shattered” for the blog tour, I decided I needed to read the first book in the series. I finally convinced the library to get it…and can we say – New Favorite Book! Wow, it was so good. The first half? Yup, awesome. The second half? Beyond belief amazing. Now, a few things that stood out to me…the cover. Pretty cool. If you look close, you’ll note that the model had on mascara, which is now smearing in streaks down her face. Which I think is super cool bec [...]

    30. Plane crashes and murders don't happen regularly in places like Yancey, a small town in Alaska. When both occur within a few weeks of each other, it is definitely more than a coincidence. Deep-sea diver, search-and-rescue team member Cole McKenna and his police officer best buddy, Landon Grainger, are determined to find out. It doesn't exactly help that the woman who broke Cole's heart years ago, Bailey, is back in town. To make matters worse, her knowledge in Russian history is something they d [...]
