Book Description

They say you can’t go home again…
When Tucker Pettigrew returns to Sweetwater, South Carolina after a thirty year absence, he knows that his reappearance will stir the town pot. The sole grandson of the most powerful man in town, Tucker wants to understand why his recently deceased mother fled Sweetwater all those years ago with little more than the clothes on their backs. What he discovers will rock not only his own foundation, but that of the town itself.
Sarah Barnwell is a woman with her own ghosts to face, and they’re there to greet her on her first night back in town. The bully who made her already rocky childhood a kind of living hell is all grown up now, but he still has Sarah in his sites.
At first antagonistic, Sarah and Tucker eventually realize that a shared property line isn’t all they have in common. And that roots, whether the plant be beautiful or deadly, run deeper than you think.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good suspense, fun love story June 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not my typical genre, but I truly enjoyed it. Sweetwater, South Carolina is a cute, small southern town, provided you are only visiting. If you grew up there, poor, well, bless your heart. If you don't know that phrase, you will. It can mean any number of things, depending on inflection and reading Sarah's interactions and explanations to Tucker made me laugh out loud. An added side story, which comes as book 2, is Allie and Mason's story, super fun and sweet. The suspense here is well-written, if a little light. It's easy to figure the bad guys, but the romance is sweet and right on point. All-in-all an enjoyable weekend read.

5.0 out of 5 stars So NOT Disappointed with this one. May 30, 2014
Listen up folks!!
This may be a new series by this awesome author (Back to Southern Comfort later, I hear. Can't wait.) but boy was this first book in the Sweetwater Series great! Well beyond my expectations. Wonderful setting in a small, charming town which could be anyone's small town, and it made you feel like you were right there with them. We all remember the "things" that went on in our own small towns, don't we? The characters were so good in so many ways that you just have to read it to see what I mean. And when you put a tall, mouthy redhead and a gruff, good looking writer together (each currently new to town, but old inhabitants) it's so hilarious sometimes you almost cry. Throw in some best friends and a few siblings as well as some other very memorable people and my God, what a great read! There is also that continuous air of mystery that keeps us wondering what the heck is going on. And don't you just hate bullies? Anyway, like I said, yadda, yadda, yadda and so forth, this is by no means a lesser book than those in the Southern Comfort Series which the author is so well known for. When you're good, you're good. I LOVED this book and am anxious to see what happens in the next one. I'm sure anyone who reads it will also not in any way be disappointed. Well done, Lisa Clark O'Neill. VERY well done. Just keep writing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, Not Great August 4, 2014
By Pamela
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While I thought it was a pretty good story, I have to say I was quite disappointed with the protagonists. I just didn’t feel the connection or attraction between Sarah and Tucker. There was nothing special about either one of them. They were somewhat boring. Tucker was a little odd. Definitely not alpha. I found him to be quite irritable, annoying, and just plain rude. While not a fan of either protagonist, I was enamored with the secondary characters, all of whom kept me engaged in the story. I absolutely loved Tucker’s best friend, Mason. Talk about a charming, witty, and sexy male specimen. I also liked the Hawbaker brothers. One more thing, I don’t know how the author came up with the name, but calling the fat cat “Useless” was just hilarious. I loved it. I may have to borrow it one day.

Still a decent read, but nowhere as good as the "Southern Comfort" series. Will I read book 2? Maybe I will, or maybe I won’t. Actually, I just might as Mason will be the main star attraction. Yum! I still can't stop laughing at the name "Useless."

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful November 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I totally loved it! This was my first experience with this author, and I absolutely enjoyed it. I love a good series, but tend to run out of them because I read too fast. I actually grabbed this book because I thought the blurb for the second book in the series seemed interesting but didn't want to read it without reading the first book. I'm so glad I did. I enjoyed the descriptions of the town and was quickly hooked on the characters. I especially adored Tucker. He was all bristly and hard and unapproachable until he found his own personal spitfire who could dish back everything he threw at her. They made a great couple, and their witty snarky back and forth dialog was just too funny. It was a good combination of humor, suspense, and mystery. I can't wait to check out the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 1st, but not my last, Lisa Clark O'Neill book! September 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book I read by this author, but it certainly will not be the last! The characters in this book and the town of Sweetwater were so heartfelt and real that I wanted to curl up on Sarah's hanging bed and listen while she told me the story of what happened when she and Allie decided to open a book store.

Allie's brothers are wonderful, just the type that many women wish they'd had growing up. Sarah's brother Bran was much the same, protective and proud, willing to stand back and watch their sisters try something new, but happy to step in should they need help.
Not only is this book filled with strong women succeeding, there's just enough of the gossipy side of a small town to make it fun and then add in the tension of dealing with a bad boy gone very bad and this book is a page turner. If you like anything about Southern fiction, you should enjoy Mr. Write.

Boring, poorly written, narrative voice that over explains everything. Attractive southern belle wears see through girlly clothes and wonders why white trash leer at her boobs.

The best part of the book was the dialog between the H/H. Kept me laughing, love a couple who can get smart-mouthed with each other, and not get in the way of the plot.

More About the Author

One fine day in the not-too-distant past, Lisa Clark O'Neill left Wittenberg University with a BA in English, which she promptly neglected. After working as an interior designer, decorative artist, and Montessori art teacher (there may have been a BA in art as well,) she finally settled into the role of mother to two very fine children.

However, two years of doing the stay-at-home-mom brain cell melt drove her to pull out a pen and one of her old college notebooks.

That turned into six manuscripts.

Lisa spent subsequent years avoiding housework by burying her nose in just about every romance novel she could get her hands on, after completely falling in love with the genre. Her own work falls into the romantic suspense sub-genre, with strong comedic undertones.

Lisa currently lives in the Atlanta area with her family, her dog, her cat and her daughter's pet rabbit. When she isn't attempting to keep the rabbit from eating the woodwork, she's hard at work on her next novel.
