Submerged is a sort of lite thriller. The nonalcoholic beer of thrillers. It's suppose to be a suspense murder (well, attempted murder) mystery, but instead falls over into a cheesy romance territory, which is something that happens all too often with female genre authors. It has some redeeming qualities, it's very readable, especially if you're in a mood for an easy read. It doesn't particularly stun of challenge, but Tardif does make an admirable effort to surprise her readers with a twist or [...]
As I stated in my status update, I picked this up off the Kindle freebie list, I had never heard of Cheryl Tardif and I wasn't sure what to expect. The synopsis sounded alright, but so have a few atrocities I have picked up from the freebie list as well. I would classify this as a novella rather than a book as it is not even 300 pages, there were a few editing problems, but nothing that was to distracting.The writing and the story telling were both pretty good, very descriptive and the character [...]
My sister and I share book recommendations and this is one of the books she asked me to check out. Well, she has yet to disappoint. Incidentally, she is from Canada, where this novel was set. I had thought the story was going to end after the first dramatic rescue with the victim and rescuer falling in love, but that wasn't even halfway through the book (not so much the falling in love). Throw in a confusing lineup of suspects, personal issues, supportive friends and family, and this romance thr [...]
As most of my regular readers know, I am a writer. What they might not know is that writers have a tendency to dissect books that they read; it is part of our search as professional readers (because you have to be a reader to be a writer) to find the perfect formula for writing the perfect book. Not so thay we can copy that book, but so that we can write the perfect book that lays within ourselves. Towards this quest to find the perfect book within ourselves, we tend to collect books that we con [...]
Cheryl Kaye Tardif has done it again, another great suspense thriller.Marcus Taylor was an EMT, but due to a drug addiction problem, became a 911 operator to continue to try to help people. How ironic that an EMT would not be able to save his wife and child after their vehicle crashed.Rebecca Kingsley was the wife of an abusive husband, but luckily he never hit his children, but that fear made Rebecca decide to divorce him, among other reasons, like his gambling problem and infidelity.When Rebec [...]
Rebecca needs a couple of days to rest and be alone while she waits for her husband to sign the divorce papers so she arranges for her sister to look after her two children. Just before she is ready to leave, her sister says she can't look after the kids so Rebecca takes them with her.On the way to her "vacation" spot, she is pushed off the road ending with the front of her car in the river. She calls 911 and gets Marcus who used to be an EMT but lost that job because of his drug addition proble [...]

I loved this book! The story-line really pulls the reader in very quickly. The characters were very well developed. I really sympathized a lot with Marcus and everything he had endured. I was really rooting for him to find some happiness in his life after everything he went through. One of the things I really enjoyed about this story was that the characters were very realistic. They were put in real life situations. There was a great amount of suspense and mystery to the story too! Towards the e [...]
** I was given a copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review**First off, this was a breath of fresh air on the thriller homefront. Ms. Tardif has created a story that is a gripping, nail-biting, roller-coaster ride of thrills. When I started reading this book, I could not tear myself away. (I have been on a great roll lately!) The Characters are real, you feel with them, they are flawed, not perfect characters, that add that much more to the story.Definitely a book I will read again, and [...]
Since I read "Children of the Fog,"I was in great anticipation to read "Submerged." I was not disappointed. I felt each character's feelings and anxiety as they deal with their problems and fears. It kept me in suspense as to what was coming next. This book was very well written and I really enjoyed reading another Cheryl Tardif story. Keep writing and I will keep reading.
VERY LIGHT ok if ur looking something to read on a planequite predictable really cannot understand what the other reviewers were on about simply another predictable, womens romance thriller
This is the first book I've read by this author and I was really impressed. A good cast of characters and a riveting story kept me hooked from start to finish. I'll be looking for more from her.
I really enjoyed most of this book. I loved the characters, and I felt for Marcus and his pain, even when I wanted to reach into the book and smack him. The same with Rebecca, mostly because at a certain point they both realized that they were attracted to each other but they didn't think the other person felt the same way, so they didn't want to say anything. What is this, a Jane Austen novel? It seriously reminded me of reading Jane Austen's books (I always wanted to smack her characters, too) [...]
There’s something to be said about a book that you decide to read on a whim hoping that it’s at least half-decent. I’m happy to say that this novel definitely surpassed all my expectations as this is a terrific, thought-provoking, and suspense-filled thriller that keeps you engaged from beginning to end. Included are likeable and well-developed characters that come across and feel so realistic; my favourite being Marcus, the “superhero” of the story. The two protagonists at the heart o [...]
You don't just read a Tardif book, you live it! Awesome.From Whale Song to Children of the Fog, Cheryl Kaye Tardif has consistently taken us on many exciting journeys. Different stories, but always with something new to learn, a fact I enjoy. Now suddenly we find ourselves immersed in her latest book "Submerged." Once again she allows us to get to know the new characters then plunges us into terror and keeps our hearts pounding. There are many heroes in this book, including a very convincing gho [...]
I enjoyed this story (and loved the cover too and the "extra" line in the disclaimer as well) but it lost a star for me as it has a lot of nit-picking mistakes all the way through it.Lots of missing apostrophes and then one dumped onto a word that didn't need one to add insult to injury !! A couple of lines were terrible English with words the wrong way round or just not right-such as "Carter filled that father-figure left void after her father's passing" or "Wanda had done the same thing every [...]

This was a nicely-paced thriller. Although I couldn't spare time to read it in one sitting (I know, I have time management issues), the story was exciting enough for me to read through bits of it quickly when I could. I liked how the story went back and forth between the two main characters' lives Marcus and Rebecca. I also liked how the story flowed and progressed very nicely with each scene making you more curious about the next. The author certainly knows how to make things thrilling and susp [...]
A Tardif masterworkSimply put, there are few writers in this genre of suspense thrillers that can match not only the unique sense of story but also the masterful way in which that story is woven into an intricate tapestry with the skill the Cheryl Kay Tardif continues to display. Reading this tale - SUBMERGED - is like finding two ends of wire, knowing that one is a positive and one a negative, and then trying to figure out how to put them together to produce the energy that exudes from Tardif's [...]
What a suspenseful read! This novel highlighted some of my fears. After i finished reading it, i regretted the fact that i didn't take swimming lessons in high school lolIt might as well had been Friday the 13th.Everything started good for Rebecca that Friday morning. She was looking forward to her vacation away from home, her kids and her soon to be ex husband. But due to some circumstances, she must take her children with her. What happens next is heartbreaking. What do you do when you find yo [...]

Cheryl very kindly gifted me a copy of Submerged and I began to readI couldn't put it down. I have to warn you, the intense feeling of being trapped will grab you and will leave you wanting to read more, just like a drugMy one phobia is to be trapped in a lift or a locked car and not being able to move or get out. Cheryl wrote this exact feeling in Submerged.The more you read about the characters the more you got to know them.Rebecca being trapped in her car, feeling helpless with her two childr [...]
This tale of death, survival and working to overcome horrific obstacles had me full "submerged" in the characters and their tale.When 911 phone operator gets a call he knows immediately he can change the life of another but doesn't realize how quickly this call would change his own life. Tardif's brilliance was eminent in sucking me into the situation while she described the lives of two main characters simultaneously.Being a paramedic is challenging, just as is being a 911 operator but being on [...]
Submerged is a tense drama/mystery/thriller that held that tension through most of the story. All of the characters, both good and bad, are believable. The main character is Marcus Taylor, a recovering drug addict and disgraced EMT, working under supervision as a 911 operator. Unfortunately, his boss hates him and is trying to set him up for failure. Marcus takes a frightening 911 call that could destroy him or save him emotionally. There was truly an edge-of-your-seat tension through the book a [...]

Reading ''Submerged'' prove to be an expanding-genre-experience. I'm your average paranormal addict and since yesterday, after reading Ms. Tardif's novel, I knew that that was about to change.Although I was unable to place the book under the terryfing thriller tug, as mentioned in the description, I got entagled in its mysterious web of deception, faith, redemption and love.Ultimately, I think it is a book that is focused more on a person's true resolution to change their ways and become the per [...]
This is the first book I have read by Cheryl Kaye Tardiff . I found this book as a free e book on but will be looking for more of her books in the future. The story is about a 911 dispatcher who is a recovering addict. While on duty he answers a call from a woman (with her 2 kids) was run off the road and their car is slowly filling with water. She has no idea where she is. He talks to her while frantically trying to get a hint of where she is. It's his worse nightmare happening.The book was we [...]
I'll have to admit that I had a hard time putting this novel down, Cheryl Kate Tardif really caught my attention with Submerged, the story of addiction, loss, abuse, faith , and love all tied together in a mystery surrounding a hired murder plot with the suspects identity being a bigger mystery, you may think that you have it all figured out when the plot twists just enough to make you rethink your decision, a well written book that I will be happy to recommend for anyone who loves a good suspen [...]
I read Cheryl Kaye Tardif's Children of the Fog a few months ago and couldn't put it downI'm happy to say that I had the same reaction to Submerged. Even when I knew it was time to go to bed, I just had to keep reading so I could find out what happens next! Marcus and Rebecca are both incredibly likable characters, and I really cared about what they were going through in the book and worried about them as if they were people I knew in real life. I can't wait to read more of this author's work on [...]
The pacing of the plot was excellent. It kept me in suspense and I did have a few surprising along the way. One of the villains was a little cartoonish but all around, I liked the characters, especially the hero, Marcus and heroine, Rebecca, who each were overcoming some pretty horrible situations and were both much stronger than they realized. This one gave me a very satisfied feeling at the end.
