When Aggie Mundeen accompanies San Antonio Detective Sam Vanderhoven on a weekend getaway to Lake Placid, she thinks it’s going to be fun in the sun. What could be better than caretaking a friend’s cottage on the Guadalupe River in Central Texas? Never mind that Sam intends to discretely investigate the theft of that friend’s boat...

Unfortunately, the weather has plans of its own. Buckets of rain and gusting winds roil the lake, turning the peaceful Guadalupe into an angry, raging river. As darkness descends, lightning reveals two people arguing on a dock across the river. When lightning flashes again, they are gone. Did Aggie and Sam witness an accident? A drowning? A murder?

The Plunge sweeps readers along with the threat of looming disaster, helpless before an untamable force, where sleuthing takes a back seat to survival...

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A very frightening but yet very heartwarming mystery, THE PLUNGE is based on the tragic and horrendous Central Texas flood of 1998. There is a lot of tragedy here, but there is also so much that is best in humanity: the altruism, the generosity and effort to help others in need, the dedication of both first responders and also ordinary individuals to help, to rescue, to provide. There is also a lot of emotional impact and heartwrenching; and truly, I was not only surprised but gratified at the conclusions. Aggie, our narrator-protagonist-heroine, is a determined and very kind-hearted individual, whose boyfriend Sam is a San Antonio police detective. She loves to help on his cases. When they decide to spend a weekend at a Houston friend's lake house, they never expected a flood strong enough to break dams and to wash houses away. Nor could they expect a substantial mystery in which both Aggie and Sam are endangered.
