Charity Truitt was fighting yet another panic attack that made it increasingly clear she was not going to complete the corporate merger between the Truitt department store chain and Loftus Athletic Gear. She was not going to marry Brett Loftus either....Notorious deal maker Elias Winters had changed gears and soon after, settled in Whispering Waters Cove. He'd been studying martial arts and Asian philosophy with one burning goal in mind -- only to discover that he'd been swept into unknown emotional seas....

Facing crises of career and heart, two of the most powerful corporate figures in the Northwest are now borne by the currents of fate to the same small Washington town, and to their respective shops -- a bookstore for Charity and a small curiosity shop for Elias. But no one, especially Charity Truitt, believes that Elias Winters has suddenly stopped outswimming the corporate sharks just to run a small business. As Charity and Elias begin a cautious exploration of each other's pasts, hidden agendas, and libidos, they discover one thing they definitely have in common: a martial arts master, he's a novice at relationships; a formidable executive, she's starting in the mailroom when it comes to love. After two shocking murders, Charity and Elias really join forces to catch a killer -- and become next in line for an early demise.

In a story that is at once a 1990s Hepburn-Tracy affair and an astute observation of life in the Northwest, Deep Waters resonates with wit, vivid characters, and a mystery-romance to die for. Jayne Ann Krentz, as always, is a master!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty | 2/19/2014

    " This is one of those books that I re read when I'm having a tough time. Its kind of silly as her books generally are but the interaction between all of the characters is great. I love all the weirdness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mom_in_a Ali | 1/18/2014

    " I really enjoyed the book. I found it easy to read and very smooth. I think the book was good. my favorite scene was when Charity calls Elias sweet and the actions he takes to change her mind. I found this scene to be adorable and romantic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 1/14/2014

    " The theme is water in this book published in 1996. Once again I give it five stars for the characters. Charity Truitt and Elias Winter, in spite of the wierdness of the water philosophy Elias espouses, are fun to be with as they untangle their former lives and start over on Crazy Otis Landing only to have to deal with several murders. Crazy Otis, the parrot, is a welcome addition as are the many characters in supporting roles. Altogether a great re-read, time and time again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robin | 1/10/2014

    " Typical Krentz. Romantic suspense, but lighter than Nora Roberts or Linda Howard. Two protagonists, neither looking for love, of course find it in the throws of sleuthing (and shopkeeping, and cults even). Ah, I do love my happy endings, and Krentz never disappoints in this respect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 penelopewanders | 1/8/2014

    " Not bad but felt rather dated with the hippie stuff... Nonetheless let itself be read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 12/30/2013

    " I couldn't like Charity but Elias, in spite of his "zen-talk" :-) was intriguing...and left me liking the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Okie | 12/25/2013

    " I wasn't really impressed with this one. The characters didn't feel 'natural', and the plot felt forced. I never really got into this one. I expected to enjoy it since I really like her Arcane Society series and the spin-offs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny Schwartz | 12/21/2013

    " A very light romantic suspense perfect for lazy evenings. "
