Description: Bailey Craig vowed never to set foot in Yancey again. She has a past, and a reputation--and Yancey's a small town. She's returned to bury a loved one killed in the plane crash and is determined not to stay even an hour more than necessary. But then dark evidence emerges and Bailey's own expertise becomes invaluable for the case.

Cole McKenna can handle the deep-sea dives and helping the police recover evidence. He can even handle the fact that a murderer has settled in his town and doesn't appear to be moving on. But dealing with the reality of Bailey's reappearance is a tougher challenge. She broke his heart, but she is not the same girl who left Yancey. He let her down, but he's not the same guy she left behind. Can they move beyond the hurts of their pasts and find a future together.

Yes, I started this series by reading the fourth book. No, I do not normally make a habit of reading the series out of order. However, I am now happy to say I will be starting at the beginning and reading this series the correct way.

I loved this story so much. The mystery was so engaging and interesting. However, the characters are really what drives these books, the mystery comes second. Each of them sparkles with personality and shines with reality. I felt as if I had traveled to Yancy and met everyone there.

As I am a huge lover of redemption stories and a strong believer in God’s amazing Grace, Bailey and Cole were an awesome couple. Bailey made some huge mistakes in her life and is struggling to let go of her past. Cole also has flaws and failed to give Bailey grace in the past. Their romance was so sweet and satisfying. There were a lot of romantic feelings, but their relationship was deeper than just an emotional attachment.

I really liked that the book included real places and real historical facts. Although I cannot say if the author got everything right or not, including them in the book added an element of realism to the story.

I highly recommend this book to those who like mystery, romance, and sparkling characters
