Sharon Sala is one of my Go-To authors but I have a hard time squaring “Dark Water Rising” with her other books I’ve read. The plot line of Haley and Sam Quaid’s easy reunion while facing down two escaped convicts during a hurricane is barely plausible. Mae, mother to one of the convicts, stretched the bounds of credibility with her escapades, especially her confrontations with her deceased husband’s paramours. All four of them. But I have to ask, what did any of that have to do with the plot premise? If there was a connection, it blew right past me. Add to that some of the poor sentence structure and I can’t help but think this is an early Sala work that was only recently published. It just isn’t up to her usual standards. At least, not in my opinion.
