Beneath The Surface By Lynn H. Blackburn

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 favorite 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 Thoughts...

Talk about high tension, wow, Blackburn has you on the edge of your seat in this one. This was the first book that I read by Lynn Blackburn but it won't be my last in fact. She has a second book in this series coming out next year called In To Deep.
I hope that it is half as good as this one was.
The suspense and the romance in this book was spot on and I really can say it was a really good read.
I can't wait for you to dive into (pun intended) Ryan and Leigh's story.
I gave this book 4 stars. I highly recommend it.
