Beneath the Surface by Lynn H. Blackburn blew me away. I've not heard of this author before but the book looked interesting. I'm so glad I gave it a chance and I'm an instant fan. I was captured from the first page, started reading it during my morning workout on the exercise bike and finished later that day while at an auction. I could not put this book down. It was easy to follow and so interesting. There were so many angles to the story, just when I thought I was figuring things out there was another plot twist. I loved every minute of my time spent with this book. I am looking forward to more of this series and will look into previous books by this author. I think what I liked most is that it kept my attention in a very noisy environment.
The only thing I would have liked to have seen played out would have been for Mrs. Claussen to meet the wife.
From the back cover:
She thought she'd be safe when she moved back home. She was dead wrong.
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 down and reaches out to her high school friend turned homicide detective, 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 to them all.
