Summary on back cover:

Bailey Craig vowed never to set foot in Yancey, Alaska, again. She has a past reputation- and Yancey's a town that doesn't forget. She's returned only to bury a loved one killed in a plan crash, but then dark evidence emerges and Bailey expertise becomes a invaluable for the case.

Cole McKenna faces dangerous rescue dive.   He can face the fear a murderer may be threatening his town. But facing the reality of Bailey's reappearance is a tougher challenge. She broke his heart...but doesn't seem to be the same girl who left Yancey ten year ago.  And he's not the same guy she left behind.

Racing against the clock and a rising body count, Bailey and Cole must move beyond the hurts of their past to work together until the truth of what is hidden in the depths finally surfaces.




This book has it all; suspense, romance, adventure and mystery.  This was the first book I read of Dani Pettrey, and I really liked it. This is a “suspense book” but it’s not your average “cop” book.  Every aspect in this book was excellent, except for the character development. I absolutely love the McKenna family but there is a lot of them and it was overwhelming at times. Once you learn all of their names and who they are, reading it becomes a lot easier. I have read this book two times and the second time was so much better just because I already knew all of their names and personalities. Dani Pettrey's storylines are always so different, therefore, so refreshing. I can’t get over her writing abilities. This is the first book in the Alaskan Courage series and personally it was my least favorite, and that is saying something because I really do like it. If you have read this book, and didn’t really like it, I would encourage you to continue reading the other books in this series. Hands down Dani Pettrey is my favorite author. I would really recommend this book as well as all her other ones.
