Two strangers submerged in guilt, brought together by fate…
After a tragic car accident claims the lives of his wife, Jane, and son, Ryan, Marcus Taylor is immersed in grief. But his family isn’t the only thing he has lost. An addiction to painkillers has taken away his career as a paramedic. Working as a 911 operator is now the closest he gets to redemption—until he gets a call from a woman trapped in a car.
Rebecca Kingston yearns for a quiet weekend getaway, so she can think about her impending divorce from her abusive husband. When a mysterious truck runs her off the road, she is pinned behind the steering wheel, unable to help her two children in the back seat. Her only lifeline is a cell phone with a quickly depleting battery and a stranger’s calm voice on the other end telling her everything will be all right. – Goodreads.com
If you’re in the mood for a quick, easy read, Submerged will fill that void just fine. Part mystery/suspense, part light-hearted romance, this is a story about two people, neither of them in good places in their lives, who find each other by way of a near tragedy and a nail-biter of a rescue. Things fall into place a little too easily with the romance and Marcus certainly gets away with insubordination with his boss (although it’s well-deserved), but this was a light, enjoyable read for me.
