Kurzbeschreibung

2013 Daphne du Maurier Award Finalist

Known as the Graveyard of the Pacific, Barkley Sound is notorious for surging swells with the power to pull helpless victims into its merciless abyss…

Sergeant Holly Rudd arrives in the coastal community of Bamfield after local divers discover a body with a knife jutting from its chest in the waters of Barkley Sound. As she investigates the crime, Holly soon realizes the sleepy town is rife with secrets. But what unsettles her most is the residents’ insistence that she bears a striking resemblance to the victim of a murder from three decades earlier. She shrugs off the uncanny likeness as a coincidence. But her simmering attraction to Finn Carver, one of the divers who discovered the corpse, isn’t so easy to ignore.

Finn, a former Special Forces soldier, knows it’s best to keep his distance from Holly. Yet it isn’t long before they both give in to the consuming desire they share. And as the danger escalates, Finn and Holly must rely on each other to thwart the plans of a cold-blooded killer who’s intent on keeping the past buried.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Erotic but refreshingly ethical 2. November 2012
Von Trudie Barreras - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
This is a genre of book that I have intentionally avoided for several years. I realize that the category designated "Romance" in the last few decades has become more and more a descriptor for erotica that could also be designated "soft porn"...or perhaps even "hard porn" in some cases. I admit that I prefer my characters to deal with one another on a level not quite so physical, and it seems to me that the unbridled passion which is apparently the stock-in-trade of such writing does not always advance the story line.

In the case of Toni Anderson's book, however, since the sexual liaison between Holly and Finn does indeed impact the plot, I found it to be of significance beyond its titillating effect on the reader. Anderson does in fact acknowledge the impropriety of this type of encounter between a police investigator and one of the subjects in the investigation, and in so doing brings the ethical issue into clear focus. And specifically, I find that the conflict being focused on this ethical concern rather than of the overdone plot line of "macho male seeks to dominate apparently rebellious but actually submissive female" is a refreshing departure.

The descriptions of the diving scenes are vivid and well told, as would be expected given Toni's former profession as a marine biologist. They recalled for me similar scenes in Nevada Barr's "A Superior Death", which was one of my favorite mystery stories a number of years ago. All in all, this was a satisfying read, even though the main thesis of the plot was pretty obvious from the beginning. What was intriguing was the way the mystery was finally worked out. Also, although there were several killings and satisfyingly sociopathic villains, morbid dwelling on the gruesomeness of the deaths was avoided.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Generic 14. April 2013
Von Bookphile - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Though I don't typically read romantic suspense when I'm looking for a suspense novel, there are some books in the genre that I enjoy. I'm always a fan of good romantic tension between characters, as well as the "will they or won't they" question (which, of course, usually turns into "Of course they will!"--but I digress.) However, it has to be done well, and the romantic tension is something this book does not do well. Some minor spoilers to follow.

The book gets off to a good start with a tense prologue that initially doesn't seem to fit with the main thrust of the story. The prologue grabbed me and made me want to read more, but then it took a while for me to see where it fit in. Once I did, I was still intrigued by the concept, but the poor parts of the book slowed the pace so much that I eventually ended up not caring about this aspect of the plot.

As for the male lead: he does not appeal to me, not at all. I don't mind a guy who's rough around the edges, but there's a fine line between aloof and off-putting. It irritated me that Finn relied on sexual innuendo to push Holly away. Why not just be terse with her? He comes off sounding like a sexist pig and, though he does show his knight in shining armor colors later, this doesn't improve him as a character. I find it hard to like a character who comes off as so derisive of women.

I don't even want to get started on Holly. For a woman who is supposedly capable and who believes she got her job on her merits and not by virtue of her family associations, she doesn't seem all that competent. Instead, she moons like a teenager who can't keep her hormones in check, something I frankly found unbelievable in a woman who is supposed to value her career and who is the lead in a murder investigation. I'm not entirely ruling out the idea that a female officer could find herself attracted to a suspect, just that I didn't think the premise was well handled.

Which leads me to my big beef: there is no suspense when it comes to the romance part. From the minute Holly and Finn lay eyes on one another, it's all each can do not to rip the clothes off the other. I get that they feel this instant animal attraction, but what's wrong with a good, slow burn? So many of the books I read that feature romance get this wrong, it seems. It'd be nice to see more subtlety in the relationship, more of a buildup but, instead, from the minute the two meet, it's obvious they're going to end up sleeping with one another.

When the book shifts gears and the cop side of Holly is shown, it's jarring. It's almost like reading two separate books. Most of the time, the mystery side of the book feels like some sort of intermission, rushed through for the sake of getting back to the parts where Holly and Finn try hard not to rip each other's clothes off. It makes me wonder this: why even bother with the mystery? Why not just make this a straight-up romance novel?

Maybe I'm reading the wrong books lately. If there's a romance, I want to see a real love story, not just two characters immediately leaping into bed with one another. Call me old fashioned, but I prefer my romance with some real human connection along with the physical attraction.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great thriller made less so by the constant romantic focus of the characters 7. Oktober 2012
Von J. Murray - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Toni Anderson's "Dangerous Waters" (Montlake Romance 2012)is from the new genre of romantic thrillers. I should have looked closer when I picked this book out of the 'thriller' category and noticed the publisher. Duh. Instead, I spent most of the 350 pages wondering how such intelligent characters could fall prey to teenage emotions so succinctly?

Let me back up. If you can leap over the nonstop romantic innuendos, thoughts, and emotions, this is a wonderful story. Thomas Edgefield and Finn Carver (it took me a while to figure out why the juxtaposition of those two names bothered me. Then I got it: 'Tom Sawyer' 'Huck Finn')discover a dead body while investigating a shipwreck. When Sergeant Holly Rudd arrives to investigate the murder, life will never be the same for her or Finn. They play off of each other, each hiding secrets as they uncover others, with a few close calls that leave Holly damaged but stronger and Finn (small spoiler) with a bullet wound in his chest.

Throughout what admittedly is a well-told story, the love interest is the driving force of the plot with everything else secondary. That mitigates what could have been a solid thriller. See if you agree: By page 66, Finn shares with the reader his growing lust for a woman he just met, nurtured apparently by nothing but his active imagination. When we pop into Holly's head, we see the same reaction. I'm sure it's inspired by body language between them, but wouldn't at least Rudd be professional enough to dismiss it, especially since she is hiding a recent illicit workplace romance?

Maybe that's the romance genre. Can anyone enlighten me?

Other than that, the story is fast paced, never slowing down, something always happening. I gave it four stars because I realized that the more I read (aside from the bee-stung lips and the manly muscles) the less I wanted to stop. Overall this is a decent read that the author could have delivered a lot better by maturing the romantic play.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Height of love, lust, adventure and mystery. 18. Oktober 2012
Von Ruth B. Ingram - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Holly Rudd of the RCMP goes to a small town in Canada to investigate the murderof a local man of the town. She meets Finn and he is the lust and sex in this mystery,but Finn also found the body. Holly is also the spitting image of a woman of the town who was found murdered 30 years and her introduction to the husband of the victim is traumatic. I am trying to avoid spoilers in this review and I can state that just about everyone has secrets to hide. Maybe everyone come to think of it. With all types of obstructions delaying and short circuiting her Holly has her work cut out for her to find the devious killer. Enjoy.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Deep in Mystery and Romance 2. November 2012
Von Rita Marbury - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I am always a little leery of murder mystery authors who are new to me. This is the first book by Toni Anderson that I have read and it opens with some pretty brutal stuff right off the bat. And in the next twenty pages a hint of the romance novel emerged.Now, romance novels are usually so cloyingly sweet that I can't stand them, but I read on. As a recreational diver, I found the second murder's setting -- a sunken ship in thirty meters of water -- intriguing, and so I soldiered on through some fairly well-developed characters -- Holly Rudd, a pretty female RCMP charged with solving the murder, and Finn Carver -- a sexy scuba diving instructor are the focus of the story -- playing off one another as sexual tension builds. Their fling detracts from a tautly woven mystery that keeps you guessing through the pages. The complication of Holly's close resemblance to the victim in the first murder and the way it affects everyone in this coastal Canadian community is well wrought and gives a nice dimension of interest to the intrigue. I guess weaving in the romance was essential for this author's usual audience, but I could have skipped it since the story really didn't need this subplot to hold my interest. The clues and red herrings were well-delivered, and I give the book four out of five stars. Even with the romance, it held my interest until the end. Dangerous Waters
