Review of Dangerous Waters by Anne Allen

Pleasantly Surprised!



‘Oh my God, what’s happening to me? After all this time, please, not again!’ Jeanne Le Page, gripped by fear and panic, struggles to breathe as the ferry arrives in Guernsey, the island she had fled 15 years before, traumatised by a family tragedy. Now she has to return after her grandmother’s death. Jeanne has inherited her cottage and she plans to sell it before returning to the UK. Deeply unhappy after the recent end of a long-term relationship, she has no desire to pick up her old life on the island. Suffering traumatic amnesia after being involved in the accident that killed her family, Jeanne has experienced nightmares for years. The return to Guernsey triggers flashbacks which become frightening and Jeanne undergoes hypnosis to recover her memory, reliving the tragedy as the ghosts continue to haunt her. But someone on the island does not want her to remember, and she faces danger from an unexpected source… A contemporary story of love and loss that will capture the reader’s imagination, Dangerous Waters will appeal to fans of female fiction. Anne is inspired by a number of authors, including Robert Goddard, Katie Fforde and Mary Higgins Clark. A comparison can be drawn to The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

This book was full of drama, emotion, intrigue, and love.

The author has a talent for bringing out emotion in the reader. It was well written and made you feel like you were sucked in to the story and were experiencing every second first-hand.

The only reason that I didn’t give it an A (5 stars) is because I am not sure about my own personal feelings about the story. I appreciate that is is a great book, but I don’t know quite how I feel. That being said, I would recommend it to anyone interested in suspense and such, but I didn’t want to give it an A without being 100% sure. Nothing against the author or her work.
