    1. 4 fast paced, exciting, romantic, stars!Dangerous Waters by Toni Anderson is a romantic suspense-slash-mystery set in Bamfield, British Columbia. It’s an intriguing tale of murder, cover-ups, and a community either too scared or too complacent to get involved in any of it.DescriptionSergeant 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 real [...]

    2. Dangerous Waters is the first book in Toni Anderson's Vancouver Island - Carver Brothers series. Sergeant Holly Rudd is in Bamfield on Vancouver Island to solve a murder. But she discovers she bares a striking resemblance to a woman who was murdered 30 years before. Finn Carver is a diver. He was one of the divers who discovered the body and, apparently, a suspect.I have read a few of Toni Anderson's books and have not been disappointed yet. There was a nice balance on the mystery/suspense and t [...]

    3. Nope, I give up. I just can't drag myself through this book any longer.Full review: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 [...]

    4. 3.5 Stars Dangerous Waters opens with a chapter that grabs you. A glimpse into the past that provides a puzzle piece that you know is somehow key to the current story but you have no idea how or why you just have to keep on reading. The Canadian landscape provides the backdrop for this latest offering from Toni Anderson. As a Canadian I very much appreciate that the story takes place in Canada because it doesn’t happen very often.Scuba diver and former Special Forces agent Finn Carver’s unlu [...]

    5. Hawaiian Proverb: He ho'okele wa'a no ka la 'ino"A steersman for a stormy day" A courageous personToni Anderson had to work for this five star review from me as romantic suspense is not my first choice of reading genres. In fact, I tend to shy away from it because I want reading to be a pleasant escape. Yet I requested to review DANGEROUS WATERS because of the Pacific setting, the capable heroine investigating the murder, and the mysterious hero impeding her investigation. Plus the setting, hero [...]

    6. This was a romantic suspense title that nicely balanced both the romance and the suspense. The story starts with a murder of a 24-year-old woman and her six week old son. Her two year old daughter disappeared at the same time. Than thirty years pass.The woman's husband is Dr. Thom Edgefield. He has never let the unsolved case rest. He has devoted his life to harassing the police to keep working on the murder. Along the way he has reported any suspicious behavior to the police which has not endea [...]

    7. 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 Carve [...]

    8. Sergeant Holly Rudd arrives in the coastal community of Bamfield, British Columbia, after local divers discover a body with a knife jutting from its chest. As she investigates the crime, Holly soon realizes Bamfield 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. At first, she shrugs off the uncanny likeness as a coincidence.Finn Carver, a former Special Forces soldier tur [...]

    9. The female lead is hard to like. She falls victim to adolescent emotions and pouts when people don't fall in line with her plan. No need to mention she has just recently had an affair with her married boss and aside from not wanting to be around him doesn't seem to experience much shame about it. Found myself rolling my eyes nearly every time she spoke.And I was totally jarred by Toni Anderson describing Holly's breath as "puffing like the Hogwarts Express." Was it necessary to bring a Harry Pot [...]

    10. 3.5 Stars rounded up.I liked Ms. Anderson's writing voice in this book and I was really pulled into the plot. These were elements of the story that I really loved and some elements that got on my nerves. I have a love/hate relationship with romantic suspense stories of late. I hate insta-lust (present in this book), I hate when characters refer to lust as love (again - this felt like lust and not love) and I really hate when the h/H are present in scenes together that the only thing on their min [...]

    11. Decent mystery. I did not figure out the complex mystery until the revealing. Mystery suspense and light romance, mild kissing and two sexy scenes make up this novel. The story was good it just kinda seemed flat to me. A good book but not a great book. As far as mysteries go solid 3stars. Free with K.U. as well as audio but for God's sake don't use the audio the women narrating does all the voices male and female and is totally laughable.

    12. Only danger is to your brain cellsWhen one is a connoisseur of the genre known as "trashy underwater fiction" (coined by me), novels like Toni Anderson's Dangerous Waters are the risk you take. It's simply the worst thing I've read in quite some time.I was attracted to the novel's plot, involving two divers out of a British Columbia marine research station stumbling upon a body while on a night dive in a wreck. The death is the result of neither natural causes nor a dive accident, but rather the [...]

    13. While I found myself enjoying trying to figure out whodunnit and why, this book fell kind of flat for me. The main character, Holly, acted ridiculously in my opinion. She is portrayed as very driven and dedicated to her career, but she very quickly gets romantically involved with a suspect in her investigation. She can't keep her hormones in check for even a week while they try to close the case? And I didn't really see the attraction to Finn.I liked the Canadian setting, though what kind of sma [...]

    14. With vibrant writing, a cast of damaged, captivating characters and a plot that’s deliciously diabolical, Dangerous Waters will have you mesmerized from page one. Anderson writes in a dark, edgy style reflected in the setting, the story line, and the secrets that haunt the members of this close-mouthed coastal community. Her characters are multi-dimensional and sympathetic—I was especially moved by the thorny relationship between Finn and his ex-convict brother. The sexual tension is high, t [...]

    15. If you like Tami Hoag, you'll love this book! I was stumped until the end, but then it all made perfect sense. Taut, tense romantic suspense, with plenty of twists.

    16. Soooo Good.This was a hreat murder mystery adventure and romance. I really loved the way the cold case tied in to the current case and the complex suspect pool. The Romance between Holly and Chase was really hot. Bravo Toni i loved it Write On!

    17. The crime aspect of the story was intriguing. The missing child aspect was okay. It was obvious because of how the characters were written, but okay. The long, drawn out descriptions of lustful thoughts and attractions were annoying, as were the long and stupidly descriptive sex scenes. They veered off of the storyline and interrupted key parts. I listened to this one, so I was able to fast forward 30 seconds at a time during the annoying sections. That is the only reason I’m giving this book [...]

    18. 3 1/2 stars. Good romantic suspense, but more suspense than romance. There are mysteries, both old and new, multiple crimes of various types, mainly murder and attempted murder, and a female detective in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police determined to get to the bottom of all of it.

    19. 4 Stars - Dangerous Waters is an adult romantic suspense thriller by Toni Anderson and the 1st book in her The Barkley Sound series.“There's a reason this part of Vancouver Island is called the Graveyard of the Pacific Barkley Sound is notorious for violent squalls and surging swells that come out of nowhere and suck you down into the pitiless black depths and never let go.”Set in the small coastal town of Bamfield, Vancouver Island, Canada, Dangerous Waters is a thrilling combination of mys [...]

    20. Two divers find a shipwreck off the coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. A wreck containing a dead diver with a knife buried into his chest. Enter Sergeant Holly Rudd who has lots to prove; that she didn’t get the job because of her daddy, but because of her merits, that she’s put her affair with her married (although she didn’t know it at the time) superior behind her, that she can close her first murder case, and that she can keep it professional when it comes to her attraction t [...]

    22. The ugly secrets of a picturesque Canadian town are exposed after Finn Carver and his best friend Thom discover a body in a shipwreck. Finn smells a set-up, since the knife protruding from the body belongs to Thom, and only the two of them are supposed to know the shipwreck even exists.

    24. Great small town murder mystery with lots of twist and a romance. Opens with a shocking murder that happened 30 years ago and then goes to present day where another murder has happened. The story takes place in a small remote town in Canada. After two divers find a body underwater Sergeant Holly Rudd of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and her team arrive to investigate. Holly's father is a commanding officer with the RCMP and she always felt she had to prove herself. This was her first time be [...]

    25. Dangerous waters has a great storyline, a well-developed plot and likable characters. I was intrigued by the setting, with the small remote town and the diving adventures. There are twists along the way, some expected and others more surprising. The story definitely held my interest and kept me turning pages. The romance here is the main focus, with the suspense playing out in the background. That is often the case with the romantic suspense genre, but can still often have a unique and modern sp [...]

    26. Toni Anderson’s Dangerous Waters is a superbly written Romantic Suspense. The author describes Bamfield, a small town on the rugged west coast of Canada, so well that that the isolated setting emerges as a cruel and complex character. As the hero says, “The village…had always been full of secrets and lies, darkness hidden beneath the quiet, picturesque exterior.” The other characters in the story are fully developed. Finn Carter is ruggedly handsome and filled with integrity. The heroine [...]

    27. OMG. I had to force myself to finish this book. I started with audible but about 60% mark, I quit with audible and finished the rest with reading manually as it is faster (not due to fault of narrator who did a decent job). I just cannot with this story. How the effing fok is Holly a sergeant? She's so damn bloody incompetent. Also, I find Finn to be a bleah H he was ex Special Forces? Really?! I'm just glad this is on KU. Had I paid for this I would have demand a refund.

    28. I'm a huge fan of Toni Anderson's writing. My favourite was Edge of Survival (if you haven't read it - do!) and now I have another favourite. Dangerous Waters is fast paced, taut and tense. It's an intriguing tale of murder that keeps you hooked from the first page to the last. I loved this book!
