About the book:
Through Waters Deep (Revell, August 2015)
It is 1941 and America teeters on the brink of war.
Outgoing naval officer Ensign Jim Avery escorts British convoys across the North Atlantic in a brand-new destroyer, the USS Atwood. Back on shore, Boston Navy Yard secretary Mary Stirling does her work quietly and efficiently, happy to be out of the limelight. Yet, despite her reserved nature, she never could back down from a challenge. When evidence of sabotage on the Atwood is found, Jim and Mary must work together to uncover the culprit. A bewildering maze of suspects emerges, and Mary is dismayed to find that even someone close to her is under suspicion. With the increasing pressure, Jim and Mary find that many new challenges---and dangers---await them.
Sarah Sundin takes readers to the tense months before the US entered WWII. Readers will encounter German U-boats and torpedoes, along with the explosive power of true love, in this hopeful and romantic story.

I was so excited that Sarah had a new series coming out, I have enjoyed her previous series and reading about the World War II era. "Through Waters Deep" is such a great start to this new series and now I cannot wait for book #2 to be released! Mary and Jim are both wonderful main characters as they became so real and they were easy to connect and empathize with. They are both struggling with some things in their lives and they are forced to work together to discover what is really going on and whom is behind it. I love the suspense that is tied in with this story and the romance that is throughout. I also enjoyed the minor characters and I love how Sarah introduces them in the first book and then continues on their stories in later books in the series. This is a well-written book that was easy to get lost in as I did not want to set it down once I started. The time period is brought to life and the characters are so well-developed; this is a perfect summer read!
