    Girl in the Water

    First off I want you to know this is a very graphic story. So if you don't like this kind of book pass it over. Ian was military but now he does extractions. His wife had done him wrong. Major Spoiler! He had a friend in trouble in Brazil! He goes to help. Daniela lived on the bank of the Amazon with her mother. Her mother drowns in a flood so their friend goes to a woman to take her in. A brothel! Now she is sent to Ian's friend and thinks she is safe. Major Spoiler! Ian comes in to only a young girl alone. He learns his friend Finch is dead and they have to make a run. Forward and Daniela is in college and wants to save girls. They got back to Brazil to try and then one of the volunteers has her baby kidnapped. Lily may be going to be sold on the black market. Major Spoiler. Once I got into the story it went well but at first it seemed to be a mishmash. It really made me reread parts to figure it out. I used a lot of tissues. If you are strong give this book a chance! I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.

    It blow me out of the water full of excitement

    This book carries a big impact it deals with human trafficking, doing what you must to get by, dealing and learning to overcome you past, starting over, learning to forgive not only yourself but those around you. Ms. Marton covers some very touchy issues that are still going on today. My heart went out to so many of these characters from Ian and Daniela to Finch (lord my heart broke for him) to the babies and children who are taken and their families left wondering, worrying and crying. This is a story of hate believe me you will hate some of these characters so much you would love to jump inside the book to take care of them. There is evil all around you just waiting to take you out or away no one is safe, you will find no help here not even from the police who turn a blind since they are in the middle of the crimes. The book is full of a mystery that you won’t know the full impact until close to the end. It isn’t all doom and gloom there is a lighter side to the story with smiles and humor, along with a little baiting, some getting even. You will find fights, running for your life, rescuing, love and passion. Which makes this a five star read giving you everything you want in a suspenseful read all in one place. We all have go to author for whatever our mood might be for me when I am in need of danger, suspense, thrills and a few chills this is the author I run to. She gives me the excitement I crave and need. I know whatever book she puts out will be thrilling, hold your breath, hang on to the edge of you seats as it leaves my mouth hung open giving me an exciting ride. I know whatever book she will put out I want it, need it for my fix. This is another author I just about beg to review any book she writes. I loved the characters they are very down to earth each having so much pain in their lives both just trying to get by. One not caring if he makes it out alive looks for danger and action at every turn. The other doing what she has to just to make it out alive, so sad she thinks this is how everyone’s life is. Man does she have a lot to learn and learn she does. She is about to not only take the world by storm but blows Ian out of the water with her compassion, strength, smiles, laugh and her need for justice why trying to save the world. Let’s talk about Ian for a few minutes he is a man above men to serve and protect until he loses his whole family. He kicks his self every day for not being home to take care of them, to keep them safe. I just about broke down when I read his story it is so touching and heartbreaking. To lose them in such away is just more than he can handle. He spends his times picking fight not caring if he lives or dies. When his best buddy leaves a message he is off to the other side of the world giving a helping hand. What he finds is one girl who has been used more ways than one by just about everyone around her. He now makes it his life goal to protect her even when she doesn’t want it. He shows her how to protect herself and then brings her home treats her like his little sister. The only problem is little sister won’t stay in her role giving him some very trying times. This is a true man of honor giving back and helping others but at the same time trying his best to make things up to his dead family. He is going to have to face some strong facts about his self that he doesn’t want to face. Daniela oh my Lord I wanted so much to reach in grab her from the pages of this book and keep her safe. At the same time I really wanted to grab a few dozen men and a few women teaching them a lesson they would never forget. The author spins a story here that is heartbreaking but at the same time thrilling giving you a scared little girl who turns into a very strong women who can take care of herself. I was so proud of the fine young women she grew up to be. She was so shamed of a past she had no control over. She really shines through as you see her delightful humor taking each day as it comes hoping for the best but preparing for the worse. I just about cried when she stood up and told it how it was. Going back now remembering her story and writing this reviews I have tears in my eyes. It’s such a touching heartbreaking tale with wonderful twist and turns that will leave you with a smile as you come to the end. I just wish for all those out there finding themselves in the same place would get the justice they deserve and be able to leave wearing a smile on their faces. I truly loved how the passion and love these two have unfolded. It is overtime not all at once. I totally enjoyed how these two characters grew not only as a person but as a team. I really enjoyed the humor they shared as well as the baiting. It was a pleasure watching Ian not only protect Daniela but to teach her how to protect herself. This is a story filled with evil, honor, passion from more than one side, but is also fill with faith and justice not only for Daniela but for those around her.

    Great suspense, epic romance, thrilling adventure!

    Awesome suspense, epic romance, thrilling adventure! I really am not sure where to even start with this review… I’ve been reading books by Dana Marton for a while now and I’ve loved all of them. Her book, Flash Fire, won the prestigious RITA award this summer. I thought her writing couldn’t get any better – I was wrong. Girl in the Water is one of the most nail-biting, thrilling, suspenseful and complex stories that I think I have ever read. I have to admit that I normally read lighter-weight stories and don’t often read ones that run to 300 pages, but if Dana writes it, I’ll read it. She even got me to try something totally new when she wrote a fantasy series called Hardstorm Saga (I loved it). OK, back to Girl in the Water. I have a confession; I had a bit of a hard time getting into this story and that doesn’t happen often to me with books by an author I love. So, I have to think that a good bit of the reason for it, if not all, is because I wasn’t expecting the storyline to be quite as complex as it was. As I said earlier most of my reading has been very light weight lately. I am SO GLAD that I kept reading. The thing that I found very compelling about this book was the fact that there are really 3 different but connected stories being told. One is about young Daniela and Ian who saves her. Another is about a young couple, Carmen and Phil. (They have a connection to Daniela but you have to read the book to find out how.) And one is about the grown up Daniela, her relationship with Ian and the kidnapping they must solve. Dana’s descriptive writing is impeccable. I could see and feel and smell the jungle all around me as I read; I was totally transported into the captivating story she wove with her wonderful words. As heart-pounding and suspenseful as the story was, Dana also managed to inject a bit of humor into it. There was one very memorable scene involving Daniela and a monkey. The path to the HEA in romance is never easy in a great story but my heart broke for Daniela more than once; she so deserved to get her HEA. I can’t recommend this book enough. If you love a complex, nail-biting thriller and an epic romance that spans several years you don’t want to miss this story!

    Very intense novel

    This is a very intense three-part book, where the part one is the backstory, part two focus on the suspense, and then comes part three with the main focus on the romance and wrapping up the tale. The part one tells the devastating and raw story of an escape from a human trafficking, from sex slavery that she was born into in the Amazons. Daniela's story is heartbreaking, her nearly accidental escape from the destiny she inherited from her mother is awe-inspiring, what she is able to accomplish with the help of Ian is nothing short of a miracle. But Ian doesn't just rescue and save Daniela's life, she does the same for him, with the slowly killing burden of the death of his wife and twin sons while he was in the military. The part two, four years later, tell about Daniela and Ian working for an agency in the States rescuing missing civilians overseas. They are teamed to return to Daniela's original home, to her roots, to save a baby from child trafficking. This part has an investigation, clues to be uncovered, and endless miles to be walked and search with the hope of a positive outcome, while Daniela and Ian have a battle of minds concerning the type of relationship they will have in the future. The part three is six months later, and more of a conclusion to the story. I found the plot intriguing, it was different and touched the many problems around the child trafficking and sex slavery. With the length of the story and timeline for the plot, the development of the characters was distinctly evident. The psyche and the inner battles of the characters came very familiar to me, and I learned to care about them as time went by. I found the writing style to be a bit heavy at times. I like more to be shown what is happening and getting the visual image instead of being told this and this happened because of that. The story is also told from several different points of views, and every time the viewpoint changed I felt it broke down the flow of the tale, the wave the story was on. Sometimes the point of view were secondary characters, and obviously important clues were given to a possible future development of the plot, yet they were left as it was, never touched again. Maybe those points could have been edited out to tighten up the tale, to lighten the load of the abundance of information. For me, the story took life and momentum after the 60% mark, the middle of the book moving on a bit too slow to hold the intense interest in the tale. Girl in the Water is an impressive and fascinating story. The destinies of the characters go from heartbreaking to exhilarating. Daniela's speech towards the end of the book was a turning point for me, making the tale, getting that emotional connection to her journey from me. If there is such a thing as a disturbingly beautiful story, this is it. ~ Four Spoons

    Good story but a hard topic to read about.

    This story starts of in Brazil where Daniela lives with her mother. In this world girls do whatever they have to in order to survive which is often prostitution. Daniela was sold into prostitution then was bought by an American named Finch who was later killed. When his friend, Ian, came to find him he found Daniela in Finch's house and learned Finch was dead. Ian stuck around, determined to find out what happened to his friend. In the meantime, he took care of Daniela. Ian was ex-military with the skills to allow him to find answers about Finch. After losing his wife and twin sons, he had anger issues and drank too much. He worked to overcome these problems. Daniela was a strong girl and just lived the way she had seen women live all her life. It was hard for her to understand that Ian just wanted to care for her but not have sex. As Ian learned more about Finch's murder, he realized Daniela was in danger and he had to get her out of the Amazon so they went to America. This was a whole new world for Daniela that she learned to love. Years later Ian had a mission to find a kidnapped American baby in Brazil. Daniela wanted to work with Ian and this was the perfect job since she knew the area much better than he did. It was hard to read this story because it talked about a difficult subject that North Americans just don't have to deal with. I didn't like the characters at first but as I got to know them more I really liked them. It was very depressing at the beginning with what the women had to do to live. Both Ian and Daniela had very troubled pasts but where able to appreciate what the other had gone through. After reading this story I wanted to go and save all the women and young girls in third world countries. I received an ARC of this book from the author but I am voluntarily reviewing it as I do with all the books I read.
