Book Review,  Romantic Suspense

Beneath The Surface by Lynn H Blackburn


This is romantic suspense at it’s best! With a big emphasis on the Romantic and the Suspense! LOL Beneath The Surface is the first book of the Dive Team Investigations.

Ryan Parker is investigating things, (no spoilers) and Leigh Weston is somehow dragged into the whole mess and it all starts with the discovery of something in the water.

That’s about all there is about the diving part of the book, so don’t think it has a lot of underwater adventure in it, because it doesn’t—-except for the first chapter.

What you WILL find however is tons of suspense, tons of edge-of-your-seat moments and if this was a movie, I’d not be able to stop long enough to eat popcorn. Seriously eeeeek worthy for sure!

Then there is the romance, swoony investigators means there is romance! I prefer a bit of romance mixed with the suspense so this was right up my alley. And yes, this book will keep you guessing all the way to the end!

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.
