Danger once again laps at the shores of Barkley Sound, the Graveyard of the Pacific….

It may be summer, but schoolteacher Anna Silver’s trip to the coastal town of Bamfield is anything but a vacation. She’s on the run, desperate to stay one step ahead of her father’s murderer and determined to track down the one man she’s been told to trust: her father’s old cell mate, Brent Carver. But when she finds him, she discovers not a kind, elderly artist but a dangerously hot alpha male with blood on his hands.

Loyal to the core, Brent would never turn away his friend’s daughter when she comes seeking help. He can’t deny Anna his protection…just as he can’t deny the instantaneous attraction he struggles to keep in check. But as their passion blazes out of control, a sadistic killer is on the hunt to stop Anna from uncovering his dark secrets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Romantic suspense delivered right Anna Silver and her father has had a strained relationship for quite some time. So when she gets a frantic call from him telling her to get out of town and go to Brent Carver's isolated hideaway, she was a little suspicious and angry that he's gotten himself in the same trouble that landed him a stint in prison the first time. When the police rules his death suicide, Anna was sure that her father had stolen money again and killed himself rather than get caught. Brent Carver has lived a life of a virtual hermit ever since he was released from prison for killing his father. A recluse artist who makes a good living through his painting, he's isolated himself from people. But when the daughter of his best friend landed on his door step, he had little choice but to help the life line he held on to when he was in prison with her father. He's never believed a wrong thing about Davis Silver. He'd always thought he was one of the most honourable man he's ever known. He's also made a promise to him to take care of his daughter if anything happens. But Anna Silver was not the teenager he's known from all her letters. She's now a fully grown woman on the run from some people who wants her dead. Battling attraction for self-preservation, he thought it'd be easier to face a psychotic killer than address the boiling tension between him and Anna. Dead bodies add up as they try to beat the suicidal killers to an envelope containing evidence that could exposed the criminal activities of a company disguised as an upstanding charitable organization. As a newbie Toni Anderson reader, the unexpected enjoyment of Dark Waters was like eating sushi for the first time. I tasted freshness that I've never tasted before, textures unlike anything I've ever savoured on my tongue. It was somewhat familiar but excitingly new. The same could be said for Toni's novel. I was a little wary of trying it but once I've gotten a taste for it, I find myself unable to stop reading. This is not the first time I've read Romantic suspense. After all, I've been a huge fan of Sandra Brown - which to me, is the creme of the crop in this genre. She masterfully combines romance and crime suspense in her novels, therefore amping up the thrills that readers can appreciate. Much like what Toni Anderson was able to do here. The charm of this novel was the perfectly paced plot and characters that somehow was evolving right in front of the readers' eyes. And though sometimes, I felt like I'm missing a prequel of some sort, Anderson was generous (but not overly) with backstories. Readers don't get bogged down with the story set up either. She throws you right into it without any preamble. This, in my opinion, was why the novel was a fast read even though it's a 320 some-odd-pager. It only took me a day and a half to polish off this book and it's all credit to Toni's uncanny ability to tell the story with as little distraction as possible. Toni Anderson combined a good mix of romance and suspense to create a delightful, thrilling read. I'm looking forward to reading Finn and Holly's story - which is sort of the prelude to Brent and Anna's story.
