Don’t miss this first book in a sexy and suspenseful new series!!
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.
Contains strong language and sexual content.

Deep Blue by Kristy McCaffrey is the first book in her new Pathway series. This romantic suspense novel is a departure for the author, who is widely known for her western romance. Her debut in the suspense genre is a success.
Dr. Grace Mann, researcher and computer programmer at the California Marine Institute is the central character. Grace is the star of a documentary about the great white shark, which is being filmed by Alec Galloway. She was initially wary of the filmmaker, but now finds herself drawn to him.
Alec Galloway, underwater photographer and filmmaker, made it his mission to win the job on Grace’s documentary after seeing Grace pictured freediving with a great white shark. He feels that Grace sometimes places herself in unnecessary danger when diving with her beloved white sharks. Alec has developed an attraction to the beautiful scientist and tries his best to protect her from both the sharks and herself.
The level of detail in this novel is stunning. The characterization is also brilliant.
The author has done her research and every aspect of this novel is fully-rendered. It started and ended perfectly. If you love sharks this is a must-read, but Deep Blue has something for everyone: romance, danger, excitement, intrigue, adventure, jealousy, desire, sabotage and betrayal. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
My type of read.
To Kristy McCaffrey - ‘Deep Blue’ reminded me of the lifestyle that I have experienced in my lifetime. I was born and raised in Kauai, Hawaii. I grew up surfing, snorkeling, and spear fishing in the waters off of Kauai. I left after High School to join the US Air Force. I’ve traveled to many other countries and have enjoyed experiencing the food and culture differences that I may not have otherwise experienced in Kauai. I did notice that The Great Wall of China at Badaling is somewhere we enjoyed visiting just to name a few.
Upon retiring from the USAF, I had settled living in Northern California. I have been a recreational Abalone diver for over 35 years mainly in the counties of Sonoma and Mendocino. I’ve been told that Great Whites frequent our dive areas based on the water temperatures, food source, and proximity to San Francisco Bay and the Farallon Islands. The respect that I have for such animals have stemmed from growing up around the oceans of Hawaii. My father was an avid fisherman and I was definitely an apple that didn’t fall far from the tree.
I enjoyed the combination of the adventure, drama, romance/sex, and mystery in this read. At times I could easily relate to the different characters that was portrayed in this story. I am going to read the Australian side of the story and of the climbing expedition of Tyler Galloway. I may have found my new favorite author on iBooks.
