Kaitlynn O’Conner was the elusive woman of many a man’s dreams.  Lucky for forensics guy Nate Morby, he was the man of her dreams too.  When he arrives at her house and finds evidence that she’s been kidnapped, he believes there is a connection to a case he is currently working on.  The most gruesome case he’s had to deal with in years.  Time is of the essence as Kaitlynn fights for her life, and Nate fights to find her.

AUTHOR BIO          

Kari Peterson was born in November of 1979. She graduated from Columbia Basin College with a degree in Computer Science, then transferred to WSU where her next degree awaits her. She currently lives in Washington State with her husband, three sons, one male cat, one male guinea pig, and two fish... whom she is certain are male as well. Visit her website at for more!


Kaitlynn is working at the casino, fending off the advances of the male customers, when Nate walks in.  They have both been hurt by life, but are ready to take a chance at love again.  When a serial killer  strikes close to home, Nate, a forensic specialist with the local police department, begins to worry about Kaitlynn's safety.  When the unthinkable happens, Nate knows it's a race against the clock if he wants to see Kaitlynn alive again.  

"Cromwell Deep" is a combination romance and mystery/thriller.  Unfortunately, as it so often happens, neither genre is well represented.  The actual mystery/thriller doesn't start until about halfway through the novel.  Until then, the romance storyline is being set up, which would not be a bad idea, but it is filled with so many cliches and shallow moments that I never managed to care about the characters at all.  Also, I hate to sound picky, but this novel needed better editorial work and proofreading.  I began to notice spelling and grammatical errors on the first page and it just got worse from there.  Anyone can miss a mistake every now and then, but in order for a novel to appear professionally written and published, care should be taken to ensure that no mistakes slip through the cracks.  

This isn't a bad novel.  It just isn't a spectacularly good novel.  Out of 5 stars, I would give it 3.
