Book Review - Beneath the Surface


Leigh Weston thought she’d left a troubled past behind when she moved back home to Carrington, North Carolina. But when dive team investigator Ryan Parker finds a body in the lake near her home, she fears the past hasn’t stayed where it belongs.


This book was so good! I stayed up reading too late more than once because I wanted to know what would happen next!

Leigh Weston is such a likable character. She is a nurse who has moved back to her home town and into the old family home on the lake. She has had a harrowing experience with a former patient and needs the comfort of home and family to heal.

The mystery starts when, during a routine diving exercise by the local homicide detectives, they find a body in the bottom of the lake that happens to be the one Leigh lives on. It's a strange murder and they have no idea who this victim is or how he ended up in the lake. Through a series of chance situations, Leigh finds herself back in danger from someone unknown and it brings all the horror of her past to the forefront again.

Ryan Parker is one of the detectives and he has known Leigh her whole life. He was friends with Leigh's brother and was warned off of Leigh from a very young age never to try to date her. He did the same with all his friends as he was protective of his sister. So despite his serious feelings for her, he never let her know. Being put together during this investigation and, having to protect Leigh from an unknown assailant, brings the feelings for both of them to the surface.

I really liked the story because I was never sure who the guilty party was until it was revealed. That's the sign of a great mystery, in my opinion. I don't want to figure it out too quickly on my own. I loved the characters, the story, and how it all came together. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series and highly recommend you read this book! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
