Still Waters was a very good book. There are a lot of details about the murder, and she describes scenes very well. It takes a very creative person to describe in detail what a person is wearing so you can see them as if they were really here. The story is written so you don't want to put it down. Along with the "who-done-it" storyline, it has an ever thickening plot. The “on the side” romance though, could use a tone down. I’m not a prude but this was “too much information.” ( )

A predicatable murder mystery, love story that takes place in Still Waters, Mn. (Is this Stillwater?) It's close to Rochester in the book.
Easy read! ( )

Pure escapism. Very professionally written, very - dare I say it? - American thriller, a bit too much "written by the book" to my liking, but a perfect passtime when you're a bit under the weather. ( )

Another fast page turner from Tami Hoag and I enjoyed it so much more the second time. Sharply defined characters, especially Elizabeth with her sharp wisecracking dialogue.. Story was good and the slow burning friendship between Elizabeth and Dane blended nicely along with the murder investigation. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553292722, Mass Market Paperback)

The deepest waters hide the darkest secrets....

When the body of a murdered man literally falls at Elizabeth Stuart's feet, she's able to wash away the blood--but not the terror. Unwelcome newcomers to Still Creek, Minnesota, she and her troubled teenage son are treated with suspicion by the locals, including the sheriff. Yet nothing will stop her from digging beneath the town's placid surface for the truth—except the killer.

Running from a messy divorce, Elizabeth believed buying a small-town newspaper offered a fresh start for herself and her son. But idyllic Still Creek, nestled in the heart of lush Amish farmlands, hides secrets dangerous enough to push someone to commit murder. Now Elizabeth must risk everything to save herself and her son, and to unmask the killer...before the current of evil flowing through Still Creek drags her under.

When Elizabeth Stuart searched for a quiet, peaceful home for herself and her son, Still Creek seemed perfect. Nestled in the heart of lush Amish farmlands, this small, idyllic Minnesota town would allow her to put a shattering divorce behind her. But the locals were noticeably cool to the newcomer—who was rumored to be a gold-digger—especially when she started stirring up controversy with her newspaper. And now when a murdered body literally falls at her feet, she has a slight credibility problem...particularly with the arrogant sheriff whose blue eyes seem to know her darkest secrets.

An ex-pro athlete who had returned to Still Creek a hero, Sheriff Dane Jantzen doesn't have much use for the media—especially not in the form of this glamorous, gutsy outsider who spells trouble with every word she prints. So when she becomes his suspect in a vicious crime, the last thing Dane expects is the jolt of attraction at their every encounter.

Elizabeth would soon challenge Dane's every assumption, including the one that he's better off without love. But as they risk everything to uncover the truth, the current of evil that contaminates Still Creek threatens to pull them both under...
