| Synopsis |

In the deep blue ocean lives an ancient predator…

Dr. Grace Mann knows great white sharks. As the daughter of an obsessed shark researcher based at the Farallon Islands, Grace spent her childhood in the company of these elegant and massive creatures. When a photo of her freediving with a great white goes viral, the institute where she works seeks to capitalize on her new-found fame by producing a documentary about her work.

Underwater filmmaker Alec Galloway admires Dr. Mann and jumps at the opportunity to create a film showcasing the pretty biologist. As he heads to Guadalupe Island in Baja California Sur for a three-week expedition, it’s clear that his fan-boy crush on Grace is turning into something more serious. But even more pressing—Grace’s passionate focus on the sharks just might get her killed.


| Author Information|


As a child, Kristy McCaffrey frequently narrated to herself. It soon became apparent that she had an affinity for this writing thing. Raised on a steady diet of sci-fi/fantasy and tales of King Arthur, she transferred this love of mythic storytelling to penning western romances once she decided, at long last, to pay attention to her natural inclinations. Educated as an engineer, she swiftly gave that up to be a stay-at-home mom and aspiring author. She and her husband live in the Arizona desert, where their four children are in varying stages of flying the nest. A great love of travel frequently ends up on her blog, along with attempts at humour. This is often at the expense of her kids, which has led them to proclaim, “We will no longer read your blog, Mom.” They also refuse to follow her on Twitter. Kristy believes life should be lived with curiosity, compassion, and gratitude, and one should never be far from the enthusiasm of a dog. She also likes sleeping-in, eating Mexican food, and doing yoga at home in her pyjamas.

Five-star review

What a fabulous, intriguing and insightful find this book is. When I began reading Deep Blue it presented as a love story with the odd bit of shark exploits thrown in for good measure. However, the details and suspense and mystery surrounding the main character Dr Grace Mann and her love of the study of sharks is addictive. Yes, this is a story about finding love but also a story of fighting your insecurities, fighting for what you believe in and most of all fighting to save a species so surrounded in mystery that this is a page-turner right to the very end.

Dr Mann’s character has two sides, tough and cold on the outside but sincere and vulnerable in the inside giving her an endearing quality. She struggles with her feelings for her filmmaker colleague Alex Galloway as he does for her. However, the story very much in interchangeable around their mission to film sharks in a free-diving expedition in Guadeloupe and their fight to keep their relationship professional. The reader is left constantly wondering will they won’t they?

Deep Blue can only be described as an incredible adventure into the deepest oceans where we learn about sharks and all the unknowns about them we rarely hear about. The fascinating psychological relationship that develops between Dr Mann and the sharks is a unique plot that has you almost identifying with the sharks and craving more. This book has it all, danger, intrigue, romance, scientific fact and a fast-paced plot that changes from page to page. I couldn’t recommend this book highly enough.
