Dangerous Waters is a contemporary story of love and loss that captures the reader’s imagination, written in a style comparable to that of Maeve Binchy.
This is a very intriguing story, set in my island home. And I am so pleased to see that Anne has kept to using local names and locations, to me this enhanced a gripping believable tale, It was so good I couldn’t put the book down !! Also the historical facts were also correct. I can’t wait to read more of her books.
