About the Book
Book: The Crushing Depths
Author: Dani Pettrey
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 30, 2020
When an accident claims the life of an oil-rig worker on the first drilling platform off the North Carolina coast, Coast Guard investigators Rissi Dawson and Mason Rogers are sent to take the case. Tensions surrounding the oil rig are high and the death has everyone on edge. Environmental activists are threatening to do whatever it takes to stop the structure from being completed, while rumors are being whispered about ancient curses surrounding this part of the ocean.
Mounting evidence shows the death may not have been an accident at all. Was he killed by one of the activists or, perhaps more frighteningly, a member of his own crew? Rissi and Mason have to sort through not only a plethora of suspects, but also their own past and attraction to each other.
Just as the case seems like it’ll break open, worse news arrives. A tropical storm has turned their way and soon they’re cut off from any rescue–and right where the killer
wants them. It’s a race to discover his identity before he eliminates the threat they pose.

In My Opinion
If you have not yet had the pleasure of reading a Dani Pettrey book, there are a couple things you should know beforehand. First, in order to appreciate the characters to their fullest, the series should be read in order. Pettrey always gives readers a little of the story of future heroes and heroines in her books. And second, hang on for a wild ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat and guessing until the conclusion.
The Crushing Depths is book two in the Coastal Guardians (if you plan to take my advice and read the series in order, The Killing Tide is book one). Mason and Rissi make a great team—and have done so since they were kids living in a not-so-great situation. I loved the backstory and the friendship these two have because it solidifies who they’ve become by overcoming in the present.
In addition to Mason and Rissi, there are other romances brewing that (fingers crossed) will play out in the next book. And for those who come for the suspense over the romance, there’s plenty of that two with two mysteries playing out—one on an oil rig and one on land.
