Revue de presse

The island of Guernsey is so vividly evoked, one feels as if one is walking its byways. An atmospheric 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 an intriguing 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 --Bookbag.co.uk

Tragedy seems to follow Jeanne Le Page around . . .
Can she really go through it again and survive?

Jeanne is lucky to be alive … at sixteen she was almost killed in a boating accident which brought heart-breaking family tragedy. Now, fifteen years later, Jeanne returns reluctantly to the island of Guernsey following the death of her beloved grandmother. Struggling for breath as the ferry nears the island, she is overwhelmed by a dark foreboding as hazy memories of that terrible day resurface…

Only returning to sell her inheritance - her grandmother’s old cottage - she has no intention of picking up her old life.

Then, soon after her arrival, a chance meeting with an old teenage crush leads her to thoughts of love.

Jeanne is forced to face her demons, reliving the tragedy as her lost memory returns.
When the truth is finally revealed, her life is endangered for the second time…

Writer Jeanne Le Page goes back to Guernsey after a personal tragedy, to the house she has inherited from her grandmother. There she finds a new purpose in life in the writing of a cookery book based on old French recipes inherited from a family member who once ran a restaurant in Paris. She is also renovating the house, with a view to selling - or possibly keeping, she isn't decided. There's one room that she has always disliked, and during the renovations, a body is found under the floorboards.
This leads her to look into her grandmother's past, which is intertwined with Guernsey's own history.
Meanwhile she has to face her own demons: what happened on the family boat the day her parents were killed? Someone knows, and is bent on stopping her from finding out.
So far, so good; too much information about house values and costs, and publishers' advances, get in the way of the story. The initial hostility between her and the man who will become the love interest is not followed up.
I know Guernsey a little, which is partly why I bought the book, but I didn't see it at all here. St Peter Port appears as a building site - where is the charm of the streets that lead to the water, and the fort with the little garden? What about the beaches and the tiny cottages with their long gardens? Guernsey is part of the story, but the setting depicted here could be anywhere with a harbour.
Would I buy more? Yes, but with fingers crossed.

This is a very disappointing book and I'm glad I didn't pay for it. Guernsey is not depicted. reviewers who say otherwsde should first go there and second read "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society'. The atmosphere of the island is lacking here, the plot is pretty predictable and the main character resembles Nancy from the Nancy Drew series by Caroline Quine.

HASH(0x92ee8120) étoiles sur 5 Dangerous Waters 8 octobre 2012
Par Erin Davies - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I wasn't sure how I would feel about Anne Allen's Dangerous Waters when I picked it up but I was pleasantly surprised with what I discovered between these pages.

I've never been to Guernsey, but it came alive for me under Allen's pen. A place caught between old traditions and the need to forge ahead, defined by an interesting combination of English and French culture. Allen's descriptions are a testament to her obvious love of the island and its history.

While I greatly enjoyed the various storylines, I can't help feeling that there might not have been enough cohesion between them. Jeanne's personal relationship woes, the renovating of her grandmother's cottage, and the mystery of the letters she discovers in the attic played well together, but I felt they were in competition with the tragedy of her parents' death, the threats on her own life and the intrigue of who is responsible and why. I have nothing against genre crossing, but I am not entirely convinced that combining chick lit and thriller played all the elements of Allen's story to their best advantage.

Despite not being quite as polished as I would have liked, I found Dangerous Waters to be a beautiful story of love, loss, and renewal. A wonderful debut from a promising new writer.

Par Pat Fordyce - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book was given to me for an honest review by the author.
Dangerous Waters is a heartwarming novel set on the Channel Island of Guernsey. It is located off the coast of both England and France, but is in fact, closer to France. It is a wonderful novel of tragedy, heartbreak, renewal and love.
Our story starts with the main character Jeanne LePage, traveling back to Guernsey after the death of her grandmother. She was born there, and spent most of her life until the age of sixteen, when tragedy struck. She lost her parents, and very nearly her own life. After several days in the hospital, she was sent to live with her Aunt Kate in the U.K. She has absolutely no memory of that day, just persistent nightmares, that she is not even sure are caused by actual memories. Jeanne has been named sole beneficiary of her grandmother's estate. She is staying with friends, who are like family to her, until she can get an idea of what is entailed in making the little house livable.
We then follow her trip down the road of discovering so many things about her grandmother, the house, and even quite a bit about herself. She resumes friendships, interrupted by her time away. The mystery of the house, her Grandmother, and the terrible day she so wants to remember to bring the person responsible to justice, unfolds in front of us.
I totally enjoyed this novel, it kept me reading long into the night. I wish Ms. Allen would write a sequel, so we could see where Jeanne and all the characters are today! I can give this novel nothing but high praise, and am very grateful for the privilege of reading it. I have recommended it to several friends, and our neighborhood book club!

Everyday I would come home from work and wonder what Jeanne was doing! Jeanne is the main character in this book and she was so very likable I just wanted her story to never end. It has long been on my bucket list to visit Guernsey, Jersey and the south shore of England--Dover, Brighton--and this just reinforced that wish. The storyline was so engaging that I want to know more--does Jeanne's book become a best seller? Do she and Nick have children? How does the cottage look when finished? How are their friends? Then, lo and behold, in her next book the author weaves Jeanne and Nick into the storyline and my questions get answered! This is masterful writing. The story flows along so smoothly and the characters are so richly drawn that like a magnet you can't resist the pull to keep reading. I was just sad when it ended--I wanted to keep in touch with all the wonderful characters I met in this book.

I hope there are more books coming from this author about this part of the world!

DANGEROUS WATERS by Anne Allen is a gentle stream, enjoyable and not difficult to negotiate. While the pace is slower than I would have liked, the plotline and island descriptions more than make up for that issue, and I give it 3 stars.

In DANGEROUS WATERS, Jeanne Le Page returns to her beloved Guernsey after a bad break-up and miscarriage, in order to deal with an inheritance received from her grandmother. While determining what to do with her grandmother's cottage, orchard, garden and possessions, Jeanne resolves to put the mystery of her parents' deaths to rest, but then she unwittingly digs up more mysteries to solve. Add in some romantic drama and new employment opportunities, and Jeanne definitely gets more than she bargained for by moving back home.

I enjoyed DANGEROUS WATERS, even though it took me some time to get into the story. The pace is a little on the slow side, but one could consider that as part of illustrating the pace of life on Guernsey. I was determined to press on because of the fabulous descriptions of the island and island living. I definitely want to visit now.

Other than the pace, the book was remarkable, with some lovely historical aspects interwoven with the drama of Jeanne's efforts to build a new life. The characters were authentic and well-illustrated. I could have used some extra scenes developing the successful romantic relationship in the book, but what was provided was blessedly free from the typical romance novel melodrama.

The romance seemed to be part of the backdrop to the other mysteries in the book, and as such, love scenes were appropriately brief and nondescript. DANGEROUS WATERS rates about a 2 on the heat level scale, appropriate for those 16 and over.

The editing was also done well, but the reader must also recognize that the spelling and grammar were British.

Overall, I liked DANGEROUS WATERS, and definitely recommend it for your summer reading list.

I had high hopes for this one. The plot sounded promising...a woman a comes home years after the murder of her parents to face her demons. However it is very poorly written. The prose is wordy and meandering. . The dialogue between characters is awkward and there really wasn't any mystery. I got to the end about 200 pages before the author did. Ugh!
