Gina Gray has always been smart, to the point that she's always felt
awkward. She would love to be married but can't seem to find the right
guy. When she has yet another break-up, she heads for her brothers house
to focus on her ocean research and see if her brother knows any nice
navy guys he could introduce her to. Mark Bishop is commander of a
ballistic missile submarine and a very good friend of Gina's brother.
He's a widow who thinks it might be time to marry again. When Gina's
brother introduces the idea of him dating Gina, Mark puts the idea aside
because he thinks she too young for him. But Gina does intrigue him and
she does know and understand what Navy life is all about. When Gina
makes a startling discovery, she shares it with Mark and seeks his
advice about what to do with the information. It's something that will
change submarine warfare but it also poses some risks. As Gina and Mark
work together they find an easy friendship, but will it ever be more?
was an enjoyable story. I read Unspoken so was curious to find out
about Bryce's brother. Mark was a lot like his brother, strong, secure
but also had a tenderness to him that really made him appealing. He was
also very romantic. Gina was very sweet and especially kind even though
she was very smart. They both had faith yet were able to encourage each
other. I really enjoyed getting to know all the characters. It was great
to briefly meet up with Bryce and Charlotte again. Undetected was not
an 'edge-of-your-seat' kind of story at all, but there was a tense part.
I did feel that the story sometimes got bogged down in too much detail
yet it was all very interesting. I enjoyed the relationship between Mark
and Gina although it was a very slow and gentle build. I have always
enjoyed Dee Henderson's stories but I must admit the style of her work
has changed quite-a-bit from her earlier writing. The cover is beautiful
and overall it was a good story; you get a taste of what it might be
like to live on a submarine or be the loved one waiting on shore.

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
