Doing stripping on the side: That might not be a bad idea for making some good money, but there are consequences…That’s the theme of the new book Dark Tide, by Elizabeth Haynes. She has established herself now in the world of suspense and it was a joy to read this book.
A Brief Summary:
Genevieve has finally escaped the stressful demands of her sales job and achieved her dream: to leave London behind and begin a new life aboard a houseboat in Kent. Not many people know that she financed her fresh start by working weekends as a dancer at a less-than-reputable gentlemen’s club called the Barclay, and she’s determined to keep it that way. But on the night of her housewarming party the past intrudes when a body washes up beside the boat, and Genevieve recognizes the victim, a fellow dancer from the Barclay.
As the sanctuary of the marina is threatened, and Genevieve’s life seems increasingly at risk, the story of how she came to be so out of her depth unfolds, and she discovers the hard way the real cost of mixing business with pleasure.
Great character development…this is a joy to read.
Elizabeth Haynes portrays, in a masterful way, the character of a lonely and nerdy woman who has a dream and wants to realize it with whatever price. But one bad decision leads to another and she finds herself in a trap which is very hard to escape from.
We liked the fact that the author started the story with a bang, the body besides the boat, and the way the story was shifting from present to past adding to the intrigue…This book is highly recommended for those who enjoy suspense to the maximum.
