Star is a professional diver who works with her Uncle Jimmy. Jimmy has been her only parent since she was four. She is self-conscious about a facial scar, and is terrified of dogs, but very little else.

Hauk salvages and writes about wrecks for a living. His latest project is a Model T on a lake bottom, but one of his divers is injured and the only available replacement is a woman. He has not worked with a woman since an ex stole artifacts slated for a museum. She damaged his reputation and pride a bit, but not his heart.

A Model T sunk in the middle of a lake is a mystery in more ways than one. No one knows how it got there, and the owner disappeared without a trace, leaving behind a young son and a not-so-grief-stricken spouse. Someone is trying to prevent the operation, and once Star joins the team, the attacks seem directed at her. Hauk is attracted to Star, and the attacks arouse his protective instincts. The mystery of the sunken car is connected to a more recent murder.

This story combines two separate mysteries with a very good love story. Star and Hauk are an unlikely pair despite their shared interests, and that makes the story even better. Star’s search for her missing mother leads her to some very hazardous places, but the boat is equally dangerous. Hauk’s crew suffers along with the two main characters and help in the investigation. I loved how the two mysteries became intertwined with the love story between Hauk and Star. The climactic scenes are very exciting and lead to a satisfying conclusion. The setting and exciting, romantic plot make this a story I will read again soon.
