In Too Deep by Lynn H Blackburn

I thoroughly enjoyed this romantic suspense. It contains a good balance of character development, police procedure, and romance.

The plot of this novel centers on human trafficking. I was a bit surprised that it was labor trafficking rather than sex trafficking. I can see how those coming from terrible situations can be tricked into a type of slave labor, even legal immigrants.

I like Adam and his law enforcement coworkers. It was good to see how they are loyal to each other and always ready to help. Sabrina is an interesting character. She's a computer geek and lacks insight into social indicators. I have known people like her so the character seemed very realistic.

There is plenty of suspense. At times I thought maybe Sabrina and those protecting her were not too smart, allowing suspense to happen. She went for a morning run by herself after being threatened, for example. While it was on private property, she was attacked. Future protection proved better.

I do recommend this novel to readers who enjoy good characters, plenty of suspense, an informative topic for the plot, and some romance. The major characters are Christians and that was presented well. Despite the cover and the title, there is very little about diving in the novel.

You can watch the book trailer here.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
