Two days. Two days was all it took for me to get through the latest book from Dee Henderson. I am a fan of her books, and her latest offering, Undetected, did not disappoint. I was pulled into the story right away and didn’t want to put it down. I’m actually a little disappointed I have finished the story and don’t get to learn more about these characters and their lives. Although, knowing Henderson, they may pop up in another of her books in the future. A girl can hope, right?
Mark Bishop is the captain of the USS Nevada, a ballistic missile submarine that his crew mans for ninety-day submerged patrols in the oceans of the world. Being in charge of the 155-person crew is a responsibility that Mark takes seriously. He’s also decided that he is ready to be married again after losing his wife on nine years several years ago. He is ready to have someone to come home to, someone with a nice smile. Gina Gray is a genius. She entered college when she was fourteen and as her college thesis, she wanted to make life safer for her brother who is a submariner and developed something called cross sonar. After another failed relationship that she had hoped would turn to marriage, Gina heads to Washington state to visit her brother and work on a couple more ideas with sonar that will change the way the U.S. Navy handles everything. Soon Gina finds herself being courted by two men and has to decide which, if either, is the man God intends for her to marry.
I loved this book. The subject was very interesting, reminding me a lot of The Hunt for Red October (even though it’s been years since I’ve seen that movie), and the pace was just right. The action along with the romance kept things moving. It was fun to see brief visits from some characters from her previous books. If you enjoy a little action, a lot of interesting information, and some romance in your books, this is definitely one to put on your list.
