Ending seemed a little rushed.

While some of the diving scene descriptions wandered into hyperbole this was a well-constructed, thoroughly enjoyable read. Rarely do I enjoy a book as much as I did this one.

A Deep thing by A. K. Smith captured my attention from the start. With meeting Kendall a grieving widow of almost two years, and uncovering little secrets one item at a time, Smith pulled me right into the suspense.

I received a free electronic copy of this novel from Netgalley, A. K. Smith, and Wild Rose Press, Inc in exchange for an honest review. Thank you all, for sharing your hard work with me. A Deep Think is an intricate dance of cause and effect, the mystery surrounding the cenotes in Belize and Mexico, and the concept of family love. It does not read like a first novel - A. K. Smith does a really good job of catching and holding our attention with this fast paced tale of daring do. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with a little romance tossed in. After you have finished this novel, I recommend that you find and view a short IMAX film titled MacGillivray Freeman's Journey into Amazing Caves. It can take you there.

What a fabulous debut novel! This was a beautiful, mysterious, and thrilling ride. A.K. Smith expertly wove this story together, dropping little morsels of secrets and past moments shared with Tim that I savored while wondering if it was a clue to the mystery surrounding this special dive trip. She laid an intricate web of intrigue that kept me guessing who to trust and what was to be discovered till the very moments all was revealed in the final chapters. I was immediately drawn into the lives of the characters. The pain of loss hit me hard from the start. My heart hurt for Kendall and Ryder who continued to struggle with their loss all these months later, never fully letting go of their pain until the truth was revealed. I loved how real everyone was. Kendall struggled with opening herself back up to the world. Ryder was an angry teenager fighting against a relationship with Kendall. It was clear from the start he resented her relationship with his father and the distance it caused in their own relationship, so why would he want to have anything to do with her now that Tim was gone? I also liked the secondary players - Scout, Steve, Conrad, and Andrew. Throughout the story, it was clear everyone had their own agenda, but the question was whether they wanted to help or hurt Kendall in discovering the truth behind Tim's deception and death. It's been a while since I've read something filled with government conspiracies, fantastical beliefs, and deception from those closest to you. As the author alluded to in the book, it was like reading an Indiana Jones adventure. While we got closer on the puzzle Kendall was trying to solve, there was still a question as to what would happen down the road. And in the end, I was left wondering what Ryder's intentions were. Was he as fame and money hungry as his mother and the rest of the vultures they were fighting against, or did he want to find a way to identify those who wanted to fulfill the mission his father put him on? I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of this book.
