Undetected by Dee Henderson

Well now! My copy almost went Undetected! Something went amiss, and I didn't catch it. So soon as this book showed up, I started reading. Undetected is a longer book. Mark Bishop wants a good wife. Gina Gray would love to be a family gal, but she is oceans deep into her career, and she just can't make up her mind yet.

Lots of time, the first 100 pages or so, was taken up with setting up the submarines and things that just didn't hold my attention this time. Finally, things start to pick up and now we find that Mark knows he wants Gina for his wife, but he has to convince her. To make matters more complicated, she is dating someone else. Will that other person win her heart, or will Mark, or will she just wind up married to her career?

Well, the world almost never knew, because I got so-very-very-bogged down in the daily life of submarine stuff, that I have about lost interest and did something I never ever do. I skipped to the end just to see! GASP! That is so not me, but I did. I've read lots of other big name writers with submarines and many other things, so it wasn't that. It was totally different than Dee's other books. Sadly, I'm just not wild about this one.

When asked what he does for a living . . .
Commander Mark Bishop is deliberately low-key: "I'm in the Navy." But commanding the ballistic missile submarine USS Nevada, keeping her crew trained and alert during ninety-day submerged patrols, and being prepared to launch weapons on valid presidential orders, carries a burden of command like few other jobs in the military. Mark Bishop is a man who accepts that responsibility, and handles it well. And at a time when tensions are escalating around the Pacific Rim, the Navy is glad to have him.

Mark wants someone to come home to after sea patrols. The woman he has in mind is young, with a lovely smile, and very smart. She's a civilian, yet she understands the U.S. Navy culture. And he has a strong sense that life with her would never be boring. But she may be too deep in her work to see the potential in a relationship with him.

Gina Gray would love to be married. She has always envisioned her life that way. A breakup she didn't see coming, though, has her focusing all her attention on what she does best--ocean science research. She's on the cusp of a major breakthrough, and she needs Mark Bishop's perspective and help. Because what she told the Navy she's figured out is only the beginning. If she's right, submarine warfare is about to enter a new and dangerous chapter.

Dee Henderson is the author of nineteen novels, including Unspoken, the novella Jennifer: An O'Malley Love StoryNew York Times bestseller Full Disclosure, the acclaimed O'Malley series, and the Uncommon Heroes series. Her books...
