Submerged by Dani Pettrey - Review

Bailey Craig must go back to Alaska after her dear Aunt Agnes dies in a plane crash. The last thing Bailey wants to do is come face to face with her past. She is much better at fleeing, running, or hiding. Although Christ is now her strength and she is a new creature in Him, she fails to see herself in a new light. She still lives in regrets of her past and trying to atone for her sins. Realizing her aunts death is not accidental, and getting involved against her wishes in a murder mystery, puts her working daily with her old flame Cole. Together they tackle the clues that keep coming up to help them solve the homicide in their small town. Will Bailey face her past and let God change her, or will she continue to run from what could be an amazing new life in Christ and with Cole?

My opinion:
This book kept me on the edge of my seat. You cannot exactly figure out the ending. The mysteries keep coming, and adding new drama to the story. It is intriguing and exciting!  It is also encouraging. As a person who is familiar with past mistakes and how they can affect your present life even if already forgiven, I was encouraged to read how the author portrayed Cole's kindness, forgiveness, and help to Bailey in seeing that God had also forgiven her and in Christ she was a new creature.  Her past lifestyle no longer defined who she was.  I would certainly recommend this book. I enjoyed it immensely. I can't wait til the next one in this series comes out.
