A forensics dive team in North Carolina is the focus of Lynn H Blackburn’s series, Dive Team Investigations. In book one, we met the team members and focused on Ryan and Leigh’s story. Book two, In Too Deep, tells the chilling tale of Adam and Sabrina. While I believe the book could stand on its own, I started out feeling that the team members were already my friends, not people I had just met. What’s to love about this book? Blackburn strikes a good balance between great romantic suspense and relationship-driven narrative. What I loved most is that Sabrina is intelligent beyond belief, yet that character trait is countered by an unusual lack of common social skills. In other words, a great, but lovable, flawed protagonist. Heavy topics are handled within these pages. My antennae went up. We’re talking about sex trafficking and labor trafficking. Where is the author taking me? Guilt, awareness, action? For me, I choose awareness. I loved that prayers are a part of everyday needs in the novel, and some are spoken aloud. They’re not preachy, but natural, clear, and honest. Points to Blackburn for exhibiting a sense of humor at a few critical points. Some thoughts just made me laugh. Try “baby cops.” Another was a paragraph listing Sabrina’s many injuries, followed by the statement she had never looked more beautiful. That just tickled my funny bone. Thought-provoking quotes: “You love the victims and the victimizers. We don’t understand that, Lord.” (How true!) and “...it’s not about how big our faith is. What matters is how big our God is.” ~Sabrina I highly recommend this series, and can’t wait for Gabe and Anissa’s story. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. All opinions are solely my own, and no positive review was required.

The story — plot, theme, characters — was well written. It was intense and held this reader’s attention. The Carrington, NC, dive team has just pulled a body from the water. Not sure whether they were looking at a suicide or an accident victim, they begin to examine the body. What they found surprised them. On her abdomen were found the words, "They killed me. Ask Adam Campbell." It was not an unfamiliar name - Adam was a white-collar crimes investigator and was not usually called to the scene of a traffic accident. And that is where the story begin - with Adam's cell phone ringing just as Sunday dinner was starting for his extended family. There is a “but” however. The book dealt with a major theme in law enforcement in the 21st century, human trafficking. The book does not provide resources for the average reader to find additional help. No web sites allowing the reader to learn more. No way to determine the size of the problem in local communities or within individual states. No signs or symptoms to suggest where help may found by somebody in trouble. No phone numbers to call for help if seen. The resources are there - do a Google search. Yes, this is a work of fiction, but the problems are real. It would make sense to add a list of resources as an appendix or addendum or even a single website where this information could found if needed, especially from a book coming with a Christian imprint. But there was nothing. I was disappointed. I have no problem recommending the book for reading. Having written a good story, I would expect the author or publisher to take the initiative to assist the reader understand the larger issues involved. ______________ This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.

This is the second book in this series and they just keep getting better. I loved the characters and can’t wait for more of the team to have their own stories. This has a bit of romance and a lot of suspense with a lot of twists and turns. I did not want to put this book down. I was on the edge of my seat through most of this book. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

This is the second book in the Dive Team Investigations series; however, it could also be read as a stand alone. I really enjoyed reading the first book in the series and have been looking forward to reading the sequel and I want to tell you that I was not disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed diving deeper into Adam and Sabrina's stories (because they are introduced in the first book; however they are side characters so we don't know get to know much about them.. until now) and I loved watching their relationship transition from being just friends to____ (whoops! can't put any spoilers) There are a lot twists and turns within the story and the intriguing plot keeps going until the very last word on the last page. When I finished the book, I felt like I'd been served a plate of non- stop action with a side of mystery. Overall I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars (can you give more then 5 stars to a book? If so, I would rate this book at least an 8 ) I would like to thank author Lynn Blackburn and Revell, a division of Baker Publishing group for giving me a free copy in exchange for a free copy. I was not required to write a favorable review just and honest one.

Talk about secret lives, this story has them. One character does not want anyone to know her secrets and then discovers she has secrets she never even imagined. The story opens with a woman being found dead in her car in the lake. The dive team investigators quickly learn that she has taken what seems to be a boatload of secrets with her to the grave. How will they ever uncover why she had contacted an investigator to request a meeting just a day or so before her death? I particularly enjoyed Dr. Sabrina Fleming’s part in the story. Having worked with computers for a number of years myself, I found her capabilities with computers to be amazing. Although my knowledge of computers is nothing like hers, I know enough to appreciate how she had honed her skills and was such an important part of the team. I enjoyed reading about her inability to read people while being a genius with computers. The suspense, romance, faith, and action of the book drew me in and kept me reading when I needed to be getting some other things done.

Not quite as good as the first in the series, but pretty close. Ms Blackburn has an easy writing style that makes her books both enjoyable and fascinating. The plot was good, and there was an interesting twist near the end that I did pick up on earlier, but couldn't figure out who the perp was. The romance between Sabrina Fleming and Adam Campbell was funny. Sabrina is nerdy to the point of having severe difficulties understanding social interactions. She learns fast, and it was more amusing than annoying. I've been around a lot of nerdy people, men and women, but no one quite like Sabrina. The story moves right along. There is a fair amount of action, and a lot of detective work much as you'd expect in real life. All in all, this is a good book, and I hope Ms Blackburn has a long writing career in this genre.

In Too Deep is the second story in the Dive Team Investigations series and this story focuses on Sabrina Fleming and Adam Campbell. Sabrina's knowledge of computer science and her skills in forensics are well known to the Dive Team and she is asked by dive team member Adam to help recover the files from a computer that was found submerged with the body of an accountant in Lake Porter. What follows is a case that may change Carrington, North Carolina forever and even affect some of Adam's own family. I was intrigued from the very beginning with Sabrina's extensive computer skills and I enjoyed seeing her relationship with Adam develop. As they both work to uncover the secrets hidden in the encrypted computer it is apparent that Adam is head over heels in love with Sabrina but she is at first oblivious to his feelings. In fact, all of the other dive team investigators know how he feels before she does and there are several light-hearted moments when they tease Adam. I liked Sabrina and Adam and the team dynamics and I felt like I was actively involved with this group of friends. I also enjoyed that I could catch up with some of the characters from Beneath the Surface. As the investigation continued and the proof of money laundering and the suggestion of human trafficking emerged, I found myself realizing that there are many different forms of human trafficking and I understood Sabrina and Adam's race to solve this case. The fact that they both were believers only made their efforts more realistic and their faith is often shown in their moments of reflection and of talking with God. I am looking forward to the next book in this series but this book can certainly be read by itself. I thoroughly enjoyed In Too Deep and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense and Christian fiction. I received a complimentary copy from the author and I was not required to offer a positive review. These are my honest opinions.

What an exciting second book in the series! I really liked the first one, Beneath the Surface, but liked this one even more! As a self-proclaimed wimp when it comes to all things scary and yucky, I have to again say how much I appreciate that author Lynn Blackburn has such balance in her stories, making them fully suspenseful and yet not dwelling on the gory and the depressing. I loved the character of Sabrina, or Bri, as Adam called her. She was the brilliant, nerdy professor who assisted in the computer-related situations. So when a laptop was recovered from the submerged car of a woman who was suspected to be a murder victim, she was the one called in. Bri could have been made too perfect, she was, as I mentioned, super intelligent and she was beautiful. Yet again, the author had the right balance and gave her a social awkwardness that made her perfectly imperfect. Adam was captivated with Bri and had been since he met her several years earlier. Yet he didn’t feel like he was free to act on that attraction. I loved the way that once he realized he could, how awkward he was at first. And then he was just simply sweet in the way he wooed and cared for her. His jealousy when the “baby cops” were falling all over themselves around Bri and the fact that he considered these young officers as such was too cute! I also thought it was so sweet that though he was from such an important family in the community, was wealthy and poised in so many ways, he was insecure about letting Bri know he liked her. The attraction between Adam and Bri practically sizzled off the page, and yet neither of them thought the other was interested in them that way. I was very impressed with the way the author wrote this so I could actually feel this as I read. I have read other books that deal with the subject of human trafficking and found them very depressing and having unnecessary details. Again, I marveled at how the author gave due diligence to the subject without dragging the story into the mire of depression and depravity. And coming from the perspective of the people trying to make a difference rather than that of the victims was wonderful. I loved hearing their passion for righting the wrongs that had been done. If you enjoy suspense and romance, don’t pass on this one! Read with a Preview at AmongTheReads.net I was given a copy of this book for free. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review. All comments and opinions are my own.

What a fantastic book! Pulls you in from the very beginning. You feel like you are friends with all the main characters because they come to life. I felt like I was on the team helping to solve the case! This one will keep you guessing until the very end. Also interwoven through the whole book is the powerful promises from Scripture. Great reminders of who God is and how much He loves us, walks beside us, and cares about every part of our daily life. Lynn is a wonderful storyteller and makes the little details of the book so vivid you really feel like a part of the book. Highly recommend for everyone to go buy this and read it!!

This story is fantastic! It is filled with drama, suspense, romance, surprises, and more! It is well written, moves along naturally, keeps your attention, and has some great chemistry between the two leads in the book. I had not read a book by Lynn Blackburn before, but I currently have book one in this series waiting for me. Looking forward to reading it! I received a complementary copy of this book through NetGalley. All opinions expressed are my own.

What it's about: Carrington County Sheriff's office dive team is at it once again. With a new case involving a submerged car, a dead woman who has left a rather gruesome note that leads Detective Adam Campbell on the hunt for a killer. Along with Dr. Sabrina Flemming, this duo, along with the sheriff's office team, are running against time to find out who the killer on the loose is, and could it even be someone in Adam's family? What I thought: What a fantastic book! This is book two in the Dive Team Investigations and it does not disappoint! Blackburn has spun another tale that is hard to put down until it's finished! It may be easier to understand all the characters if the reader reads book one in the series, but it's not too hard to pick up on past story lines if the first book hasn't been read. Blackburn does an amazing job grabbing the reader right from the start and keeping them flipping the pages until the end. With twists and turns along the way and the reader changing their mind as to who the killer may be, Blackburn keeps you guessing up until the end in this suspense thriller that keeps you wanting more. Would you like it? If you enjoy suspense thrillers, this is definitely the book for you! With a splash of romance and the page turning thrill, those who enjoy this type of genre will have a hard time putting this book down. Revell sent me a complimentary copy to review. Opinions expressed are my own.

Talk about a book that you dive into head first from the very first page. Gripping, heart pounding, and one that you will remember for a long time. This story is fast paced and exhilarating. I love the plot and all it's intricacies. This is the second book in the Dive Team Investigation series but it can definitely be read on its own. I didn't feel like I was lacking any information for having not read the first book. I think the dive team concept is so interesting and unique. I've read a lot of crime and investigation type books and this one stands out as being different than the rest. I definitely want to go back and read book one and find other books by this author. I love her writing style and her voice. The romance thrown in is a cherry on the top of the sundae. Loved it. I received a copy of this book from Revell. This has in no way influenced my review. I was under no compulsion to write a review. All thoughts are my own.

Lynn Blackburn's latest book, In Too Deep, has plenty of twists and turns as best as I can tell. To be completely frank here I absolutely loved it. What I love about this book, is even though I have read countless fictional crime novels, this one takes it to a different level. With characters as well-developed and with amazing dialogue i couldn't put this book down. In fact, I was re-reading it to see if I missed anything. With that said, Lynn Blackburn has won a couple awards for mystery and suspense novels; one being 2016 Selah Award for Mystery and suspense and a 2016 Carol Award for Short Novel. She has also written the books Beneath the Surface, Hidden Legacy, and Covert Justice. If there is anything I could add on to her writing credibility is that she has the ability of writing well-crafted, well-rounded stories that take the reader to a different place. In Too Deep takes the reader on a ride showing a link between investigator Adam Campbell and an accountant who has her own secrets. But it's one that's truly deadly. Adam finds he has to turn to his friend Sabrina Fleming, a forensic computer analyst working at a university. The more they dig deeper into the case the deadlier the crimes become in an attempt to hide the truth from being exposed. As Jesus tells us, "If you continue in My word, you are truly My disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free" (John 8:31-32, Berean Study). But in the context of this book the truth has deadly consequences. I truly loved this book and it is one of those books that deserve multiple readings. I received a copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest review.

In Too Deep is about my favorite couple of the first book of the Dive Team Investigations, so I was very happy and excited about that. Just like the first book, the action was intense and the romance was just waiting for a quiet moment to bloom (plus, another couple I've been shipping since the first book seems to be finally hinting at a future romantic relationship...), and the stakes are high as ever. My only real complaint is that the book is just so sad. The hero's backstory is sad (and he's my favorite character, so that's unacceptable), and the heroine's entire life is sad. I mean, I suppose it's realistic to life, especially dealing with the heavy content that it does, but, still, it made me... sad. Still, I love the characters and look forward to reading further in the series and watching the next romance bloom (especially if it's that one couple I've been shipping since book one....). I received a copy of this novel from Revell. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

MURDER, INTRIGUE, ROMANCE AND SUSPENSE… Author Lynn H. Blackburn keeps her readers completely immersed in this thrilling suspense novel. With a cast of likable characters who happen to be coworkers and friends, plus a plot that just keeps thickening, readers won’t be able to put this book down! *I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts below are my own. In Too Deep, book two in Lynn H. Blackuburn’s Dive Team Investigations series, follows investigator Adam Campbell and forensic-skilled Dr. Sabrina Fleming as they work together to uncover the secrets that lay in a case involving a recently recovered body and laptop from a submerged car. Being a suspense lover, I was really surprised I hadn’t come across author Lynn H. Blackburn before. From the first chapter, she had me completely hooked on this story. Paralleling my other favorite authors such as Dani Pettrey and Irene Hannon, this suspense novel is a must read. The mystery behind the case this team is working on keeps readers interested and turning the pages late at night (and perhaps keeping the lights on too). With a fast paced story line and constant, continued interaction between the key characters, I think this is a great read for any suspense lover. Being that it is book two in a series, this novel has me wanting to read Beneath the Surface now (the story between investigator Ryan Parker and NP Leigh Weston, who make appearances in In Too Deep). Regardless, this novel does well as a standalone. I’m certain romantic suspense lovers will enjoy the budding relationship forming between Investigator Campell and Dr. Fleming. These two each have their own unique personalities and it’s quite the ride as they work together and connect on a more personal level. I highly enjoyed all the characters in this novel. They were well rounded and each had a story of their own, coming from different backgrounds and areas of expertise. My only drawback to this novel was the ending… There was a quick wrap up that I wasn’t expecting to the case and it felt anticlimactic… But then an information dump from the villain left me reading more slowly to make sure I grasped what had really happened. The chapters became short and somewhat choppy plus there was a lot of narrative from the author tying up the details, but it was still a great story and still enjoyable!

This book had me up late in the night reading! It has everything I love in a book - a mystery I couldn't figure out and wonderful characters that I really cared about that tried to live out their faith in real, tangible ways. When a woman is found in the river dead, she has a message to Adam Campbell from beyond the grave that has everyone on edge and in fear for their lives. Adam is a dive team member of the Carrington County Sheriff's Office and he is working with Dr. Sabrina Fleming to figure out what message the woman in the river has left behind on her computers and other technology. They are working close on this situation and becoming more and more attached to each other. There is so much action to this book with one scary incident after another. I was never sure who was behind it all. I thought I knew who the bad guy was but I was totally wrong and I loved that I was! It was really a very complex story with lots of twists and turns I never expected. I also enjoyed knowing more about how the diving team works with law enforcement. There is a nice romantic story line along with the mystery so I enjoyed that, too. The faith aspect was very realistic and I enjoyed how they depended on God in their lives. This is one of the best books I've read this year! It kept me intrigued from the first to last page and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great mystery/romance. I give it 5 out of 5 stars. It's a must read for those quiet nights by the fire or cuddled up in bed. *This book was provided to me by Revell. I received a copy of this book to review but I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while reading this book.

IN TOO DEEP is the second book in Ms. Blackburn's Dive Team Investigation series, but it easily stands alone. I did read the first Beneath the Surface and vaguely remember it, but I don't think I would've been lost if I hadn't read it. I have to say I LOVE Adam. He is so sweet and sensitive and handles teasing from his coworkers well (who call him a pretty boy because his family is wealthy). I also loved Sabrina and how beautifully clueless she was until she well, wasn't. I did kind of wonder what point her Rosita story had to do with anything in the beginning of the book, but I knew the author put it in there for a reason and so I kept it in the back of my mind and went on. The suspense is great. There is actually two different cases to solve, that are - but are not - related. Who killed the woman whose body was in the lake and why was someone targeting Sabrina? I didn't have the beginning of a clue - which is saying a lot for me with Romantic Suspense and I had to keep reading to find out. I highly recommend IN TOO DEEP if you love romantic suspense or know someone who does. Grab your copy now. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

This story has it all — page turning suspense, heart racing romance, and a subtle but deep inspirational thread. I loved the twists and turns of the investigation while seeing Adam and Sabrina fall in love. I highly recommend this romantic suspense. Full review is at my website.

In Too Deep gripped me! There is so much that goes on in this story. Not just suspense wise. Not just romance wise. But let’s solve a crime that’s more complex than anything you can think of. I LOVED it!! I can't wait for book 3! *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. My review was not required not influenced.

I love books where the ending is a total surprise, so I love this one! The dive team is called in when a car is found submerged in Lake Porter with a female occupant. She is deceased and they ponder, suicide, failed brakes, was she run off the road, murder? As the investigation goes deeper and deeper they find more twists and turns. The female main character, Sabrina, is attacked at her home and almost dies, then she along with two others are almost killed when a bomb explodes within a few feet of them. When the investigation team realizes her life is in danger, she has at least one or more bodyguards 24/7. There are a few romantic sparks as well when she and Adam, from the dive team, begin being honest with each other. Even though some of the same characters appear from book one, this can still be read as a standalone. The edge of your seat suspense, the occasional humor and the romance made this an enjoyable read for me. I loved all the characters and felt like I really knew them. And the ending....totally out of left field! I never could have guessed in a hundred years. That's my kind of suspense!! I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher but was not required to write a review, positive or otherwise.
RuthieJonesTX More than 1 year ago
In Too Deep is a sensational, fast-past romance/suspense/Christian fiction full of intrigue and deception, but the characters are what I love most about this book. The camaraderie between the friends and co-workers is what brings this story to life and makes it enjoyable and believable. The romance between Adam and Sabrina is sweet, especially because Sabrina is incredibly intelligent but a bit clueless when it comes to reading people's social signals. Many books have the two love interests rushing headlong into a whirlwind romance almost from the beginning (which is definitely okay because a story often has time constraints, and that relationship sometimes needs to be established quickly); however, Adam and Sabrina have known each other for a couple of years before the start of In Too Deep. Of course, their feelings for each other were already there but needed a bit of coaxing before they could surface and be acknowledged. Once those two lovebirds finally admitted the truth to themselves and to each other, well look out! Their romance is lovely, quirky, and true. The main plot is rife with escalating danger and deadly intentions as Adam and his crew rush to decode a murder victim's mysterious message. As the clues start piling up, the team begins peeling back layers of lies, despicable greed, and betrayal, all of which hit way too close to home for both Adam and Sabrina. While these plot elements are typical in many suspense stories, they are downright explosive in In Too Deep, keeping the story racing along at a brisk clip from start to finish. The topic of human trafficking is uncomfortable to read about yet important in terms of reminding us that this ugly practice is an unfortunate reality. The Christian references and prayers from characters offer a positive backdrop to those baser plot points, providing that needed hope and encouragement in a world full of greed and hate. The author does a really great job keeping everything connected and relevant and offers a few twists that will break your heart, make you angry, and keep you turning the pages. Even if you figure things out before the end (I didn't), In Too Deep will resonate as an entertaining story about love, friendship, and family as well as a thought-provoking story about the darker side of humanity and the good people who are doing their part to combat that evil.

This is the second book in the Dive Team Investigations series by Ms. Blackburn. I loved the first book and this one was fantastic as well! This book focuses on Adam (who you meet in the first book). Adam is a dive team investigator who is called to a possible crime scene where a woman has drowned. Did she meet with foul play? Once the medical examiner examines her and discovers what she has written on her stomach, Adam decides there may be more going on than what it appears. In her trunk is a computer which brings Dr. Sabrina Fleming to the crime scene. Dr. Fleming is the dive team’s go to person to assist during investigations. Her forensic computer skills are phenomenal. Adam and Sabrina have worked other cases, but continue to find themselves together in this book. Will a romance develop between the two? As Adam is working the case, someone comes after Dr. Fleming. Is the two cases related or is it just coincident? This romantic suspense novel will keep you up and engaged throughout the book. I highly recommend this book and series! You will not be disappointed!!! ***I was given a free electronic copy of this book from the publisher. This is my honest opinion. Even though I received this copy free, this is my own opinion.

Blackburn has definitely done her research on underwater criminal investigation and cybersecurity. She uses this knowledge to enhance the mystery as she takes on the issue of human trafficking. We hear and read a lot about sex trafficking but less about labor trafficking which is the main topic of In Too Deep. The reader will be made aware of the types of jobs these people do among us as well as the types of things to notice as we encounter people from all walks of life. Dr. Sabrina Fleming may not be good at reading people, but she is a master at mining data from a computer and from the internet. This skill makes her an invaluable resource in certain crime investigations. Her friends, however, believe that this time it has also made her a prime target for people with things to hide. Police investigator Adam Campbell doesn't know what to think when it is revealed that a dead woman pulled from a lake has written him a message in permanent marker on her abdomen. Most of the time he doesn't know what to think about how Sabrina reacts to him either. During this case it is essential to figure out both of these situations and to decide what is next to be done. I believe Blackburn's readers will truly enjoy this story as many unexpected events arise and it becomes clear that not everything or everyone is what or who they are thought to be. I thank NetGalley and Revell Publishing for providing me with a copy of In Too Deep in exchange for my honest opinion. I was under no obligation to provide a positive review and received no monetary compensation.

I remember being wowed by the first book in the series Beneath the Surface. This second book In Too Deep gets a double wow. Lynn H Blackburn spins an incredible and fast-paced romantic suspense complete with non-stop action, an intricately and tightly woven plot with gasp-worthy twists, a thought-provoking look at modern-day slavery, and wonderfully memorable characters. If you enjoy contemporary inspirational romantic suspense, this book is a must read! In this book, we get better acquainted with Sabrina, the brainy, dedicated, and somewhat socially awkward professor of tech and cyber security and Adam, our diver team homicide investigator who comes from money and privilege. If you read the first book, you would already know that there is definite attraction brewing between these two but their story can definitely be read as a stand-alone. Adam is incredibly sweet but so insecure and hesitant because he’s never been wanted for who he is, only for his family’s name and money. Sabrina and Adam are thrown together again as Sabrina’s life becomes threatened and a homicide investigation spins out of control. Such nail-biting suspense!! I can’t wait for Gabe’s story next. Hopefully it will be Gabe and Anissa....? I was given a copy of this book from the author and Baker Publishing Group and was under no obligation to to post a review.
