Last but not least, I have the pleasure of reviewing ‘Dark Waters’ by Mary-Jane Riley! Big thanks to the author for personally inviting me to take part in her blog tour, and a big thank you to the publisher for my ARC of the book. Here is my review:
Secrets lie beneath the surface…
Two men, seemingly unconnected, are discovered dead in a holiday boat on the Norfolk Broads, having apparently committed suicide together.
Local journalist Alex Devlin, planning an article on the dangers of internet suicide forums, starts digging into their backgrounds.
But Alex’s investigation soon leads her to a much darker mystery – one that will hit closer to home than she could possibly have imagined, and place the lives of those she loves in terrible danger.
What does TWG think?
Oh how glad I am that ‘Dark Waters’ can be read as a standalone! I have one of the previous novels on my forever growing TBR pile which I haven’t gotten round to devouring yet. Don’t be put off by the fact that this book is the third book in the series as I believe it can be read very well on its own. That said, there were some parts of the book which I got a bit lost with as references were made to the previous book.
‘Dark Waters’ is definitely a fast paced read with so much grit for readers to be able to sink their teeth into. I really enjoyed the mystery element to the storyline as it kept me guessing until the very last page, whilst also keeping my interest piqued.
Be prepared to go on a ride of a lifetime though, as this author seems determined to make her readers work as she takes the storyline down various routes at different times. As I usually get confused by so much happening at one time, I was a little bit weary but I needn’t have worried at all. Despite ‘Dark Waters’ being on ‘fast speed’ for the entire duration of the book, the author managed to deliver a flawless and intense storyline in such a seamless manner.
‘Dark Waters’ may be full of mystery, murder, and truck load of mayhem, but it is a book which I thoroughly enjoyed. This author certainly knows how to keep her readers interested, and this author certainly knows how to write such three dimensional, refreshing characters who you won’t be able to forget in a hurry!
