Dangerous Waters Reviews

"The island of Guernsey is so vividly evoked, one feels as if one is walking its byways. An atmospheric and tantalising read" -- Elizabeth Bailey The Gilded Shroud 'Anne's characters are well formed and likeable (or unlikeable as the case may be)... The two types of story intertwine without the awkwardness sometimes found in this genre. A pleasant diversion" -- Chris Wible The Shepherd's Image 'I've never been to Guernsey but I'm determined to go now that I've read this book. It's a book you can settle into and really enjoy, but it's a lot more than chick-lit. There's an intriguing mystery, a finish which had me reading into the early hours of the morning and an insight into what I think of as the back-end of the publishing industry - the bit that the reader never sees or even knows exists. It's delivered with a light touch but gives the book real depth. I was impressed. ****' -- Bookbag.co.uk
