I’ve been waiting to read this novel since I finished the last page of Submerged. And it didn’t disappoint. The novel starts with a bang that carries it through until the end. This is Landon and Piper’s story which began in the first novel. I enjoyed seeing Landon’s development into a man of God. Piper’s forwardness was endearing as most romance novels play on lack of communication issues. Although I will say, she is more impulsive than she should be, but then again that’s her personality. The romance between them was sweet and came together better than I expected. I enjoyed the siblings working together and I’ve got a feeling we’ll be hearing about Gage pretty soon. The mystery was a good mystery without being overly complicated and will have you guessing at the bad guys. And it’s definitely my kind of mystery. Spiritually, as I said, Landon develops into a man of God and I liked to see how natural faith was to (most of) Piper’s family. Highly Recommended and waiting for the next one!
