Dangerous Waters – Mystery, loss and love on the island of Guernsey has the sound and feel of that authors work. Not in the sense of a copy but in the spirit of the characters and narrative.Jeanne is a damaged young woman. She was on the boat with her parents when they were killed and more recently she lost a child in a fall down stairs. The relationship with the father had already crumbled before the loss. Returning to Guernsey seems like a lovely fresh start for Jeanne. Her high school crush asks her out and invites him into his circle of friends (pun intended). Jeanne isn’t ready for a relationship and Marcus is moving fast but she doesn’t jump into bed with him, which is a credit to the author because sex is a very easy thing to throw a character into these days but for this character it would not have seemed logical.
Within the story, Jeanne is writing a cookbook using her grandmother’s recipes. Allen includes a few recipes at the end of the novel that look wonderful. I am not a person who cooks for fun but if I was, I’d try them out – especially the rabbit pie.
This is a great read. If you like Maeve Binchy, you’ll like Dangerous Waters – Mystery, loss and love on the island of Guernsey.
