Matador, May 2012
Jeanne’s return to her home island of Guernsey forces her to face the fear of a specific stretch of waterway. The experience aboard a ferry, unpleasant in itself, bodes ill for sense of peace from nightmares that have plagued her since childhood. Meanwhile, a cottage bequeathed to her by her grandmother instils strength and perseverance in starting a new life after a relationship break-up. But as heart-rending flashbacks occur with ever-increasing frequency, a man seemingly intent on developing a deep relationship with her becomes a tad too possessive. Sense of danger soon prevails and while Jeanne unravels a mystery of interest to her in the vein of curiosity, a mystery from her past comes full circle to threaten her life. Can she survive, and can love win the day? Dangerous Waters is a poignant story of tragic losses and meaningful love found within a place that is dear to her heart. A delightful if sad read to touch the heart of a reader, but it does have an happy ever after.
