Book Review: Beneath the Surface

From The Back:

After a harrowing experience with an obsessed patient, oncology nurse practitioner Leigh Weston needed a change. She thought she'd left her troubles behind when she moved home to Carrington, North Carolina, and took a job in the emergency department of the local hospital. But when someone tampers with her brakes, she fears the past has chased her into the present. She reaches out to her high school friend turned homicide investigator, Ryan Parker, for help.

Ryan finds satisfaction in his career, but his favourite way to use his skills is as a volunteer underwater investigator with the Carrington County Sheriff's Office dive team. When the body of a wealthy businessman is discovered in Lake Porter, the investigation uncovers a possible serial killer--one with a terrifying connection to Leigh Weston and deadly implications for them all.

Dive into the depths of fear with an exciting new voice in romantic suspense. Award-winning author Lynn H. Blackburn grabs readers by the throat and doesn't let go until the final heart-pounding page.
My Reflections:
A new series for the well-loved Lynn Blackburn! 
Be prepared to hold on tight as you are propelled into intense action with this new series "Dive Team Investigations." 
Some of my favourite plots are penned around stories with medical and law enforcement officials. Having worked in the medical field I find I really click with the characters and settings. 

Leigh Weston returns home to Carrington, North Carolina in hopes to escape memories of the past. Leigh, an Oncology nurse, garners the attention of a past patient who has turned stalker. Thankfully she is miles away and tucked into her safe hometown, or so she thought until strange occurrences start to happen. Where she felt peace and security would prevail there is only chaos and fear. 

Ryan Parker, a homicide investigator, becomes entwined into Leigh's life once again after the grizzly discovery of a dead body. These two are no strangers as Leigh is Ryan's best friend's sister and childhood love interest! Things may just get interesting.. But these two will have to hold on tight because things are bound to get more than impressive, perhaps just plain crazy! 

 I loved all the many characters in this novel, not just the main characters but also the supporting cast. I can't wait for the sequels to dig a little deeper into some of these stories! 
How many books will be in this series? 
Hopefully enough to delve into Keri, Gabe, Sabrina, Adam and Anissa's stories!

Once again Blackburn does not disappoint, her novel is filled with suspense, romance and non-stop adrenaline producing action. A must read if you love good suspense with solid moral footings. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment!
