There are writers and then there are writers like Elizabeth Lowell.  She writes real good romantic suspense stories, with so much depth and detail. I’ve always maintained that as much as I read books for pleasure, I enjoy the gratification of learning new things.

Night Diver as the name suggests, is about the Donnelly diving family. It’s their bread and butter, diving and salvaging treasures from under the sea. After a terrible tragedy, Kate Donnelly stays away from her hometown, her brother and grandfather, building a career for herself. But one desperate call for help from her brother changes her life forever.

Elizabeth takes us deep into the ocean as she unfolds the story behind the business of diving. Cut throat and filled with treacherous bumps, as much as it sounds exotic, it is also very competitive and dangerous. People have known to steal, lie and kill for the deep-sea treasures unknown, and this is the crux of her story. The story may have dragged a tad bit in the middle, since Elizabeth is particular about details, nonetheless it was worth a good read for me.

I loved the subtlety with which she builds the budding friendship between Kate and Holden Cameron, former British military to investigate the suspicious activity tied in with the Donnelly’s dive searching for treasures from a sunken pirate ship. I loved the way Holden was characterized with tenacity and focus. His patient handling of Kate as she battles the waves of nightmares in the sea, the references to the changes in Kate as the days go along, and the love that Holden has for Kate as he gets to know her, was portrayed with clarity and sweetness, it hits you right in the heart.

The buildup to the end, the suspense as it gets ripped open, and the reality of Holden’s presence, is definitely a thrilling ride to the finish.

After a family tragedy, Kate Donnelly left the Caribbean behind forever. But a series of bad management decisions has left her family’s diving and marine recovery business drowning in red ink. Now her brother pleads with her to come back to the island nation of St Vincent. Without Kate’s financial expertise, the iconic treasure-hunting enterprise started by her grandfather will go under. Unable to say no to the little family she has left, Kate heads back to the beautiful and terrifying ocean that still haunts her nightmares.

Holden Cameron was addicted to the adrenaline rush of active duty—including narrowly surviving an underwater explosives accident. The last thing the former British military diver wants is to babysit a family of thieves on a tropical island—even if they are the world-famous Diving Donnellys. But in his new civilian job, Holden must investigate the suspicious activity surrounding a Donnelly dive to recover treasure from the ancient wreck of a pirate ship.

When equipment, treasure, and even divers begin to disappear, Kate and Holden form an uneasy alliance to uncover the truth. But the deeper they plummet into the mystery, the closer they come to each other. Soon they are sharing their deepest fears and darkest secrets—and a combustible chemistry too hot to ignore.
