Hidden Depths
[(Hidden Depths)] [By (author) Ann Cleeves] published on (September, 2007) - Ann Cleeves

Vera is called into a case when a teen boy is found drowned in his bathtub. Vera and others wonders if it has anything to do with his best friend accidentally drowning months ago. When a young woman is found dead posed the same way, Vera starts to wonder if it ties into an amateur bird watching group. 

 

I really enjoyed "Hidden Depths". Cleeves did a fantastic job of having Vera on the scene quite quickly in this one. We also get a chance to see into her "head" more in this one too. She's very good at her job, and is reluctant to allow others on her squad to do a lot without her input. I thought that Cleeves did a great job of allowing us to see mode depth with Vera wondering about a potential life she could have had if not for her father. 

 

Cleeves offers up different points of view in this one with several characters, the divorced mother racked by grief (Julie Armstrong), and three separate men (Peter Calvert, Gary Wright, and Samuel Carr) who are part of the bird watching group, along with one of the men's wife (Felicity Calvert). We eventually see how things tie together in this one, and although it's a slow read, it's a satisfying one.

 

I do think Cleeves does a great job of showing how toxic personalities can shape a group or person (no spoilers) and loved the slightly unsatisfied ending in this one. I honestly wish the tv series had followed more of the book's plot since I thought it worked better.

Hidden Depths by Aubrianna Hunter
Hidden Depths - Aubrianna Hunter

Hot and steamy read with lots of angst! Enjoyed it, but had issues with storyline along the way. 

The heroine, Gia, seemed a bit inconsistent to me. She's portrayed as this, "take me as I am or screw you!" tattooed, pierced gal. Neither Josh or their friends gave any indication of having an issue with who she was, so why is Gia convinced that Josh isn't serious about more than sex with her??

Hidden Depths - Aubrianna Hunter What a great read! What's a man to do when he finds himself engaged to the wrong woman? He pursues the love and the life that he wants. So starts this extremely steamy and oh so hot love story.

....she had always been free. A little wild, a little dangerous, always different and always true to herself. She never seemed to care what anyone thought.

Great secondary characters, I loved all the witty banter.

I really loved the epilogue. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

Hidden Depths - Aubrianna Hunter This was a great story with a bit of role=reversal. In this one, she's the tattooed, pierced and different character. He's the straight-laced following all the rules and doing what's he's supposed to.

Their chemistry is off the charts and hotter than hell.

I really liked the way things played out between them. The role reversal was amazing!
