"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

I hope there are more books coming from this author about this part of the world!
The idea of a story within a story worked well, and I loved the intrigue Anne created with the letters from Wilhelm to her grandmother. A forbidden love affair, resulting in the equally secret pregnancy ending in sadness as the man she loved dies in tragic circumstances, her baby stillborn...All the time, striving to find out what caused the accident that resulted in the deaths of her parents and free her from the flashbacks.
Anne pulled the story together and tied it all up beautifully with an ending to be proud of. I love a happy ending, and it was inspirational to finish with some of the recipes from the 'proposed bestseller', which,I for one,will be trying out myself in the very near future.
Well done Anne, and I look forward to the sequel, for Jeanne and Nick's wedding and of course the opening of Collette's restaurant.
The pace was extremely slow and there was a fair bit of unnecessary details like eating, showering, cleaning, packing etc. The main points of the story got lost in the details of everyday life. I picked the villains in the story very early on.
I really do think the author lost the pace for a mystery in this one as for me it only had a few areas of quiet suspense. I did look up the island of Guernsey after I finished, as there was enough history in the plot for me to be interested in that.
The thirty-something Jeanne is a protagonist for whom we develop an instant liking. We watch as she remains in Guernsey and oversees cottage renovations, expands her circle of friends, and becomes romantically involved. We cheer her along as she tries to regain her memory of the night her parents died. We hold our collective breaths as she stumbles upon secrets--one of which threatens her very life!
Author Anne Allen lived on the island of Guernsey for twelve years. Her first-hand knowledge of the picturesque area and its historic background had me rushing to add it to my list of places to visit. An interesting final touch was the addition of traditional recipes at the back of the book.
The easy flow and pace of Dangerous Waters make it a perfect summer read for fans of light mystery and romance. Looking forward to the next book!
