I don't know why this book rubbed me the wrong way, but it did. First, there were so many over-the-top "quirky" characters it was ridiculous. Then there was the fact that Marisa could taste Terry's yearning and longing for home in his kiss. Really? That's quite a talent. But when it really went bad for me was during the first sex scene when Terry said (and I kid you not) "Just pretend this is my eight inches going straight to your heart." Oh. My. God. I know that was probably supposed to be hot and/or romantic but, to be honest, if someone said that to me I would be doubled over laughing. The mood would be totally ruined.
Then there was stuff like the fact that Terry supposedly owned a cell phone but he was listening to messages piled up on his answering machine after he had been gone for a few days. And that a roadrunner named Hercules was later referred to as Henry. Confusing. At one point the question of Marisa's paternity came up as she questioned her eye color in relation to the eye color of her supposed father, leaving me to think we would learn something interesting there. Nope. Never mentioned again. Maybe that was the main problem I had with this book. It created more questions then it answered before its rather abrupt ending.
Adult language and limited but detailed sexual content.
It wasn't the worst book ever but I can't really recommend it.
The real estate developer that buys the town isn't ready for the wacky cast of characters in this small town that he gets to know and finds a new place for all of them in his new development to win the love of the woman that holds the group together.
It is funny, sad, full of tension and conflict that makes it one of the better human experience stories I have read in a long time. Anna Jeffery has another good story out for her fans to enjoy.
First, the hero - West Texas native who makes Fort Worth his home, rich real estate developer Terry Ledger buys the town of Agua Dolce on eBay, sight unseen.
Second, the heroine - Marisa Rutherford, the unoffical town mayor of Agua Dolce (population 10)struggles to keep her roadside cafe profitable while she was also the full time caregiver to her sick Mother. Add the fact that she recently just had her heart broken, Marisa is on one of the lowest points in her life.
Third - the other 9 citizens of Agua Dolce who are colorful characters to say the least. And you know what? Anna Jeffrey developed all of them to be three-dimensional. More than just comic reliefs, the denizens of Agua Dolce added a richness to the storytelling.
An attraction that should not be there, Terry and Marisa struggled to hide their feelings for one another even to themselves. After all, they are each other's enemy...right? Well, their hearts don't think so. So in between business deals and making the bank happy on Terry's side, and feeding tourists and the town of Agua Dolce on Marisa's side, the hero and heroine had to struggle to find some alone time.
And believe it or not, those moments are so sweet and other times just poignant yet you believe that there will be a HEA for both of them.
Great read!!! This book is PG 15 due to sex (not graphic) and the subject matter of being a full time caregiver to a helpless patient.,,

Boring, the characters predictable, nothing interesting or exciting happened. The same bla, bla....until the end.
