The frigid waters of the Pacific Northwest are about to get hot... The only thing Navy underwater archaeologist Undine Gray fears more than facing former SEAL Luke Sevick is never scuba diving again. But when a dive on a Cold War-era US Navy submarine ends with an accidental explosion, she's terrified of going into the deep, forcing her to beg the most experienced diver she knows to take her back to the bottom of the cold Salish Sea. Luke wants nothing to do with the woman who destroyed his career a dozen years ago but finds it impossible to turn his back on her plea. Caught off guard by an attraction he doesn't want to feel, he's eager to be done with this mission of mercy. But when they dive on the wreck, he only gets sucked in deeper. Someone has been digging on the Navy sub...and it appears the explosion that almost killed Undine was no accident. To find the truth, Undine must navigate murky waters and the unexpectedly hot undercurrents swirling between her and Luke. Worse, divers are searching for something lost in US waters during the Cold War, and they'll do anything to keep Luke and Undine from finding it first.… (mais)

Undine Gray and her team are researching a Cold War-era US Navy submarine that sank in the Salish Sea. While she is at the decompression point underwater, the research vessel explodes leaving her as the only survivor. Even though she is suffering from the bends, she is saved by a man that she never thought she would see again. Former SEAL Luke Sevick is diving off of his NOAA ship when he sees the explosion and saves Undine. Even though Undine ruined his career 12 years before, he still agrees to dive again with her in order to help her overcome her PTSD and fear of diving again. What they find when they dive is more than either of them bargained for, leading them into a mystery that has remained hidden since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Cold Evidence is well written with plenty of research to add depth to the novel, but not so much as to overwhelm the reader. Revealing that Undine Gray, the protagonist, is at fault for the problems she caused Luke Sevick also adds a level of realism to the story. The unique mystery and some of the twists and turns make this a cut above the average romantic suspense story. ( )

The diving and the steaminess of the romance made this story interesting. The characters were well developed. The pace was good. The writing was impeccable. ( )

I've yet to read a Rachel Grant book that I didnt immediately want to go to the locations she describes through out the book. Neah Bay, Washington is where the majority of this book takes place with most being underwater looking for a Cold War-era US Navy submarine.

As per her previous books the author immediately captures your attention right off the bat – in this case with the boat exploding while Navy underwater archaeologist Undine Gray is many feet below decompressing from a deep dive. From here the mystery and suspense move along at a steady pace as its slowly revealed that the explosion wasnt an accident and real reasons come to light which continue to put Undine in danger.

The hero and heroine had an interesting past that was cause for some serious love/hate (more hate on the hero side) through most of the book. Luke Sevick hatred for Undine was warranted and I worried if it would effect how I felt about him but even with the mean things he said about Undine you could still see he was an honorable man and even with his feelings he would do what was needed to protect her.

As with the slow reveal of the plot of the story the mending of the relationship between Undine and Luke also was a slow burn which I felt added to the realism of it instead of quickly resolving 12 years of hate.

I always look forward to a Rachel Grant book for scenic descriptions, interesting plot and smoking hot romance and I've not been disappointed yet. ( )

Cold Evidence by Rachel Grant is the 6th book in her Evidence series and it was AMAZING and engaging. Rachel, an archaeologist herself, has the advantage of her husband, David, who is a former UAB nautical archaeologist, to assist her in the specifics about parts of her books, but that being said, she is a phenomenal author who knows how to weave a story with real facts and creative story telling. Her books are so gripping that you will have a hard time putting them down and you will feel like you are there with the characters, experiencing what they are experiencing as it is happening.

OK, you can read the publishers synopsis of what this book is about, but what I will tell you is that this is a “can’t put it down” type of book. I read it in less than 24 hours, and if I didn’t have to work, I would have been able to read this book in one sitting, because it is that good. You will not want to want to put it down until you are finished with the story.

You are introduced to Undine Gray, an underwater archaeologist who is diving on a Cold War-era US Navy submarine when an explosion almost kills her, but does kill her entire team. Six weeks later, Undine is terrified to dive again so she asks Luke Sevick, the former Navy SEAL who helped rescue Undine, and is her first love from 12 years earlier, to make a dive on the wreck she was exploring when she was almost killed. Luke accompanies Undine, but their history is such that he is not sure he wants to help her over come her fear, when they discover enough evidence to show that the wreck was more that they expected it to be. The wreck is from the cold war era and there is evidence that the the sinking of the former US Navy Sub, and the accident what almost killed Undine, were actually not accidental but a deliberate acts. Will she give up on finding out the truth? You will have to read the book to find out.

This book can be read on it’s own, but reading the entire series will enrich your experience with the characters from former books, who are brought into the story and enrich Undine’s back story.

Rachel is so AMAZING in her story telling that you can see, smell and taste the story as it unfolds. If you are interested in military history, romance, archaeology, and or marine biology, this is the book for you. There is mystery, romance, military history, suspense and a whole lot of excitement as the story unfolds. I am so glad I was chosen to read and review Rachel’s latest book

I received this ARC from the publisher, which in no way impacts the content of my review. ( )
