    "Excellent! Kept me engaged throughout the book!"
    What made the experience of listening to Submerged the most enjoyable?

    The story kept me on the edge of my seat! I couldn't stop listening!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cole and Bailey! Their propriety in relationship with each other and God were portrayed well!


    Have you listened to any of Christina Moore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I search books with Christina Moore as the narrator first, then I decide if the book's story is worth my time. She is the best!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely! I couldn't stop listening!

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    Story
    "Submerged Left Me Breathless"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Submerged to be better than the print version?

    Though I own this book in print, I chose to listen to it because I couldn't wait until I had enough time to fully immerse myself in this story. I consider a story's ability to be translated into audio in my review, and Submerged rated high for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cole was my favorite character in this book. I really liked his integrity and his desire to seek different perspective to the different situations he was confronted with. He was a well developed character which allowed me to feel his pain and rejoice with him.


    What does Christina Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed her inflections and found it easy to slip into the story after a couple of words, no matter how many times life interrupted me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The beginning of the book started out with a bang and soon after my heart was screaming. I was close to the end of the book when I found myself screaming once again. I loved it.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my first experience with Dani Pettrey and Christina Moore and I am ready for some more.

    "Excitingly Intriguing, worth the time"

    I enjoyed the suspense and detailed back story rippling through this mystery, murder, suspense, and romance. It's got something for everyone with a wonderful undercurrent of redemption.

    "Absolutely spell-binding"

    Thank you for the awesome story, the world of Audible Books has opened up some awesome authors of Christian fiction and this is the first of Dani's I've "heard". I was very impressed with the plot and it kept me glued to it! It was also a beautiful story of God's incredible Grace!

    "Ocean secrets"

    Historical secrets kept for years gives an exciting and mysterious angle to several deaths . Dani Pettrey is great about giving the way to salvation in Jesus without interruption of the story. A moving and good read.

    "Good story"

    This story has some really unique twists. It was more suspenseful than I thought it would be. Faith related themes were present, but more naturally presented than in some books. The voices used by the narrator seemed inconsistent with Alaskan dialects, more of a Deep South tone with some resonance differences. At times, that was distracting, but overall, well done.

    "Great storyline"

    I like more than just a romance novel. This had romance intertwined with mystery and suspense. It was also something I could listen to without hearing vulgarity or steamy love scenes. I'm definitely going to purchase more books from Dani Pettrey.

    Story
    "Painful"
    What disappointed you about Submerged?

    I am nine chapters in and I'm stopping now. I only got this far because I was listening while I cleaned out an old filing cabinet. The story itself might turn out to be fine. It does have some unusual features, like the setting and the diving and the fact that the female protagonist was formerly the town slut. But the writing is trite and the author insists on stating the obvious.

    As an example, two characters in the search and rescue business are talking and one says to the other something like, "The NTSB -- National Transportation Safety Board -- will be here tomorrow." Okay, maybe you need to clarify the acronym for the reader. But guys who work together don't talk to one another this way. There's a more elegant way to accomplish the same end, but it has eluded this author, time and time again. Painful.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Writing this clichéd has to be hard for a narrator, but this one does the book no favors. In particular, her male voices sound strained.
