Overview

‘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 frightening 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.

    Dangerous Waters ¿ Mystery, loss and love on the island of Guern

    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.
