Product description

About the Author

A former marine biologist who completed her PhD at the Gatty Marine Laboratory in St. Andrews, Scotland, Toni Anderson has traveled the world with her work. She was born and raised in rural Shropshire, England, and, after living in five different countries, she finally settled down in the Canadian prairies with her husband and two children. Combining her love of travel with her love of romantic suspense, Anderson writes stories based in some of the places she has been fortunate to visit. When not writing, she’s busy walking her dog, gardening, and ferrying the kids to school, piano, and soccer games. She is also the author of Storm Warning and Edge of Survival.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Toni Anderson starts with an original premise for a murder mystery: the victim is found stabbed to death thirty metres deep in murky waters. So far, so good. But in assembling a cast of suspects, the author lines up a whole cast of stereotypes with barely credible motives.

This is also a romantic novel, and here we are close to Mills and Boon waters. "...the frisson of attraction crackled between them, as obvious as forked lightning on a moonless night." "... gray eyes locked on hers and it was disconcerting to realize hers were the exact same stormy shade."

Clearly there is a market for Ms Anderson's books - this is her fifth to be published. Prospective readers will make their choice and may well not wish to share my reservations..

I was lured in to buying this (and the next one, will I even bother starting it now?) after reading the free sample on my kindle. It starts off rather well and it seems a promising thriller is in the offing, but it soon deteriorates in to mills and boon territory, with lots of honed rippling muscles and skimpy clothes and heavy breathing and all the main characters suffering from uncontrollable lust like revved up teenagers. It's just vacuous drivel. I ended up not caring who did it or what happened to anyone. Not my cup of tea.

I gave this book 3 stars as it was entertaining, but in no way a gripping page-turner which I expect in a crime novel.

The characters were ok, slightly one dimensional and predictable. The plot felt a bit muddled and boring at times.

All in all, it was ok. I'm glad I stuck with it and finished it, but in my opinion it's one to borrow from a library, not buy. 

I'd hoped to enjoy the book as Toni Anderson has written quite a few books, but they are sadly not for me.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Predictable romance oddly spiced up by a serial killer and underwater diving adventure but containing little of the darkness and suspense necessary to carry those themes.

As the plot moves forward a body is discovered which leads to a police investigation and a list of unbelievable suspects. Events become quite random while the real motivation behind the scenes, the romance, results in scenes of loosely written sexual tension and activity between the two 'perfectly formed' lead characters.

What annoys me about this novel is the bulk of it is written to such a tried and tested romance formula it is completely predictable. The murder, diving, police investigation themes are thrown in to add texture to what is basically a love story. Nothing wrong with romantic fiction, there's a huge fan base for it, however; Dangerous Waters hovers between three different story types while committing itself to just one which makes for an obvious imbalance in the plot.

I'm leaving 3* rather than 2* simply because I found the themes around diving and underwater exploration quite well written and certainly the strongest part of the novel.

Dangerous Waters is not a book for me and left me disappointed.

I didn't think this book was ever going to end! There are better thriller writers and better romance writers and I'm not sure that I like the combination of the two. And any budding Miss Marple would have had the thing solved very early on.

By June Doll TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Nov. 2012
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I would sum up this novel by describing it as Mills and Boon plus a serial killer, combined with more sex than can usually be found in a Mills and Boon story. The characters in the novel, even the two central characters of Holly and Finn, were very one-dimensional. There was very little character development and in consequence I didn't really feel much empathy for these two characters. In romantic novel tradition, we have an exquisitely beautiful heroine and an incredibly handsome hero. I prefer my heroes to be a bit more realistic! Again, as per tradition, Holly and Finn are outwardly antagonistic towards each other but inwardly are fighting an overwhelming desire for each other! Cliche, after cliche!

Elements of the story are plain silly. For example, Finn and his friend Thom are scuba-diving and find a dead body inside a shipwreck at the bottom of the ocean. The shipwreck is unrecorded and no-one else knows of its whereabouts. Finn and Thom immediately report the dead body to the authorities but they are both then suspected of being the murderers. This makes no sense whatsoever. If they had not reported the dead body it would never have been found. There are many other similar incidents which detract from the story. There was a supposed twist in the tale which was no real surprise as I sussed out who the bad guy was before I reached the end.

In spite of the above criticisms, the book was quite readable and I did continue to read it to the end. If you don't mind the cliched story and the wooden characters, you may still quite enjoy it. Personally, I will not be seeking out any other novels by this author. Not my cup of tea, I'm afraid.
