My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
A Deep thing by A. K. Smith captured my attention from the start. With meeting Kendall a grieving widow of almost two years, and uncovering little secrets one item at a time, Smith pulled me right into the suspense. Never knowing who to trust, a string of interesting and somewhat suspicious characters enter her daily life. Each one brings a little information and a lot of questions to light.
When Tim died, he left a father and son trip in the planning stages that no one knew about. Until a man named Scout called and made Kendall aware of the mysterious mission.
The writing was exceptional. The scenes were alive with activity. The Cenotes were amazingly described and the history of them and their place in history is well told. The characters were rich with personality and each new character made me suspicious of their motives and the motives of the other people in her life.
Ryder, Tim’s son from his first marriage is not a willing participant or a friendly character. He is moody and a bit spoiled. He, of course, missed his father and was angry that he had died in a diving accident. He refused to see Kendall is a helpful loving person intent on helping him. That rang true to me all through the book. Scout was a great character that made the story exciting and I enjoyed reading about his in-depth conversations about the people of the Yucatan.
A lovely exciting read that you should take the time to read. It deserves the 5 stars I am giving it because it stayed with me and kept me picking back up the book time and again. When you can’t walk away from a book, it is a real winner.
