Unable to say no to the little family she has left, Kate heads back to the beautiful and terrifying ocean that still haunts her nightmares.

Booklist Reviews

Rife with deep-sea diving and salvage terminology and interesting facts, Lowell's latest tale of romantic suspense, after Reckless Love (2013), swirls around a grandfather and his grandchildren's attempt to save the family's treasure-recovery business as it sinks into the red. After watching her mother and father drown when she was a teen, accountant Kate reluctantly agrees to return to the Golden Bough, the primary vessel of the Diving Donnellys, when her grandfather and brother ask for her help. Arriving at the island of St. Vincent, she is appalled at how desperately her grandfather and brother need to fulfill their British government contract, and how distrusting the Brits are about their operation. In fact, they've sent retired diver Holden Cameron to oversee the Donnelly's work, since the Brits suspect someone is stealing the gold and jewels the divers bring up. Added to the drama is a tropical storm that's about to descend and shut down the dive. Lowell brings her reader-pleasing, heart-pounding gift for adventure and sizzling romance to the eerie depths of the ocean. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Library Journal Reviews

After her parents are killed in a diving accident, financial expert Kate Donnelly leaves her family's marine salvage business in the Caribbean—for good, or so she thinks. But when the business hits serious financial snags, ocean-wary Kate agrees to help—as long as she can stay on dry land. Being attracted to Holden Cameron, a former British military diver and financial investigator for one of their clients, comes as a bit of a surprise; so does working with him to get to the truth when deadly things begin happening. VERDICT Sunken treasure, underwater danger, and just the right amount of diving and salvage detail make this another gripping journey from Lowell. It draws readers in, ramps up the tension, and keeps the pages turning until the last mystery is solved. Lowell (Dangerous Refuge) lives in the Sierra Nevadas. [See Prepub Alert, 11/18/13.]
