Reviews

"The island of Guernsey is sovividly evoked, one feels as if one is walking its byways. Anatmospheric and tantalising read." -- Elizabeth Bailey, author of The Gilded Shroud.

"I've never been to Guernsey but I'm determined to go now that I've read this book. It's a book you can settle into and really enjoy, but it's a lot more than chick-lit. There's anintriguing mystery, a finish which had me reading into the early hours of the morning and an insight into what I think of as the back-end of the publishing industry the bit that the reader never sees or even knows exists. It's delivered with a light touch but gives the book real depth. I was impressed. **** -- Bookbag.co.uk

Dangerous Waters by Anne Allen is perfect for fans ofThe Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, andCoastlinersby Joanne Harris.

Anne Allen lives in Devon, by her beloved sea. She has three children and her daughter and two grandchildren live nearby.  Her restless spirit has meant a number of moves which included Spain for a couple of years. The longest stay was in Guernsey for nearly fourteen years after falling in love with the island and the people. She contrived to leave one son behind to ensure a valid reason for frequent returns.
