Underestimated because of her age and avoided because of the scar marring her face, Star Fisher is still focused, determined and won't let anybody push her around. An experienced underwater diver, she is hired as an investigator onto an underwater salvage operation where the mystery of a sunken Model T will test her skills and the people involved will test her temper, and even scarier, her heart. Hauk Ludvikson is fascinated by the new diver on his crew. At first uncertain of her skills, Star quickly proves herself to him, even if some of the others on his team take a little longer to warm up to her. Things heat up quickly when it seems that someone wants the mystery car to stay unexamined, and will go to any means necessary, putting the lives of the crew, and especially Star, on the line.

Salvaged is a very good story. There were two main mysteries involved, the one surrounding the car as well as one surrounding Star Fisher and the nightmares that haunt her. J.S. Marlo wove everything together with quite a bit of skill. The characters are unique as well, and I enjoyed all the interactions between the crew. It was also interesting to get glimpses into what the bad guys were thinking and doing, although it would’ve been nice if the villains would’ve been less idiotic. Even so, there were surprises enough to keep it interesting, even if the pace could’ve been a bit smoother. If you want a good mystery with a romance liberally sprinkled throughout, Salvaged is the book for you!
