This book had me gripped from start to finish and I read it in just a few evenings.  The main characters were damaged each in their own way making them both likable and vulnerable, leaving you hoping for a happy ending.  It had a nice balance of mystery, justice and romance.  Would definitely recommend this book and I look forward to reading some more of Ms Tardif's work.  Would give it a 4.5 if I could.

They have been pushed into the lake,with seconds ticking by,rescue may not be able to find them. Oh yeah, did I mention a ghost or two? With the mention of one of this author's previous books "Children of the Fog",ghost rarely disappear,if by the way you have not had a chance to read "Children of the Fog" I would recommend you do for another great read. Now back to "Submerged" you will be "Submerged" in this fast paced story of suspense,mystery and a bit of romance on the side blossoming. Ms. Tardif is a great storyteller. She pulls the reader into her story with her realistic characters,her plots are not only interesting but intriguing. A not to miss story! Received for an honest review from the author.

As most of my regular readers know, I am a writer. What they might not know is that writers have a tendency to dissect books that they read; it is part of our search as professional readers (because you have to be a reader to be a writer) to find the perfect formula for writing the perfect book. Not so thay we can copy that book, but so that we can write the perfect book that lays within ourselves. Towards this quest to find the perfect book within ourselves, we tend to collect books that we consider examples of a perfect book written by someone else. Tonight, I am adding another book to my small collection of perfect books. Submerged (by Cheryl Kayne Tardif) is an good example of a perfect book. The cover is perfect for the story that it advertises. The pacing is perfect with just the right amount of new information being given, and new questions being placed in play. The chapters are the right size--just big enough to satisfy, yet short enough that one is tempted to read just one more chapter...and then another. The symbolism used supports both the plot and the characters. Submerged is a good example of a perfect book. (I wish that I was as good of a writer as Cheryl is.) My only concern with it is that some of the culture references might age quickly, and I am not sure if that can be helped given the speed that our culture changes at. Submerged is a hard book to put into a category. It is about half romance, half suspense, and a quarter supernatural (yes, math is not my friend); it also a tale of addiction, fall, and redemption. I quite enjoyed reading it. If you didn't already guess, I am giving this book five stars and two big thumbs up. This book is going to be enjoyed by both regular readers and those picky writers.

Cheryl Kaye Tardif has done it again, another great suspense thriller. Marcus Taylor was an EMT, but due to a drug addiction problem, became a 911 operator to continue to try to help people.  How ironic that an EMT would not be able to save his wife and child after their vehicle crashed. Rebecca Kingsley was the wife of an abusive husband, but luckily he never hit his children, but that fear made Rebecca decide to divorce him, among other reasons, like his gambling problem and infidelity. When Rebecca is run off the road, she called 911.  Marcus was on duty and answered her distress call.  With a busy night and all emergency vehicles elsewhere, he decided to break a few rules and attempt to find and rescue Rebecca and her children. But who would want to kill Rebecca, and why?  The first suspect is always the husband, thought Rebecca doubted it could be him, no matter how violent he could get towards her, and no matter how unhappy the divorce was going to make him.  If it isn’t the husband, then who is it? Great mix of characters to keep it real.  Marcus, a recovering drug addict, his best friend , Leo, with a past of his own.  Rebecca, an abused woman with two children, the presence of Jane and Ryan, Marcus’ beloved wife and son. Definite page turner.  Keeps the suspense of trying to determine who is behind it all.  Plus the emotions of an EMT who lost his job from his abuse of drugs, the death of his wife and child, Rebecca and her abuse and fear for her children.  A must-read for anyone who loves suspense.

Rebecca needs a couple of days to rest and be alone while she waits for her husband to sign the divorce papers so she arranges for her sister to look after her two children. Just before she is ready to leave, her sister says she can't look after the kids so Rebecca takes them with her. On the way to her "vacation" spot, she is pushed off the road ending with the front of her car in the river. She calls 911 and gets Marcus who used to be an EMT but lost that job because of his drug addition problem. Still wanting to help people, he became a 911 operator. Lucky for Rebecca, Marcus didn't always follow the rules. It was a busy night so there was only one police car available to search for Rebecca and her children. Marcus knew that wasn't enough and they didn't have much time, so he went to look for them himself. I loved the characters in Submerged. Poor Marcus had gone through so much with loosing his wife and son in an accident. He tried to handle the loss by taking drugs which caused him to lose his job. Then we have Rebecca who has lived with an abusive husband for way too long. There was nothing good about this guy. He also had a gambling problem and cheated on her. This was a well written, fast paced suspense that I highly recommend. I really like books that I can't figure out who dunnit before the end. In Submerged I was actually surprised to learn who was trying to kill Rebecca.

Marcus, an man with many secrets and guilt, now working as a 911 dispatcher, is not a happy man. Rebecca, a soon-to-be divorced woman with two children, decides to go on a little weekend by herself. When the call comes in to Marcus' 911 center that Rebecca and her children were in an accident, he breaks every rule in the book to save her. Marcus, a former paramedic, is a recovering addict. Initially, I wasn't sure about him. As a former paramedic myself, I started out being a little judgmental. As the book progressed, I found myself liking him more and more. All in all, I loved this book and had trouble putting it down until the very end. There is lots of suspense, interesting, complex characters, and I will read more of Cheryl Kaye Tardif's books.
