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.
What was Terry Ledger thinking when he bought a Texas town on EBAY? What was he going to do with the residents? What was he going to do about the budding romance that could cause him to sabotage his own big plans? These questions were answered in a fun, full of life, emotional rollercoaster of emotions that is Sweet Water. This book like Anna Jeffrey's others is full of vivid full color writing. I find myself smelling the coffee brewing and feeling a part of the action. Now that I have fallen in love with all of these characters and I do mean characters,I need to know what happens next... Sequil PLEASE!
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.,,
I bought this book based on the synopsis; a real estate developer buys a small west Texas town on Ebay to build a senior citizen community. This actually happened here in Texas where a town was bought on Ebay, so I had to read this book. I am so glad I did because Sweet Water by Anna Jeffery is an enjoyable and amusing book filled with some of the zaniest characters I've read in a long time. The other thing is I've been in towns like this, not only in Texas but in Washington, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona as well. So, I can so envision Sweet Water's main drag and the people who live there.
Marisa Rutherford has moved home to Agua Dulce to take care of her mother who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. She's running her mother's antique/flea market/ diner as well as caring for her Mom. She actually enjoys being back in this small town and creating desserts and specials for the locals and tourists who happen by. When news of the town being sold surfaces, she knows this will mean a change for her and her Mom since they don't own the building their business is located in. It belongs to the town, thus the new owner.
Terry Ledger is a real estate developer who has taken many risks both personally and professionally over the years. He's just bought a west Texas town sight unseen on Ebay. He knows it's a gamble but he's up for the challenge, he's never failed in business and though he knows this will be his biggest risk he's up for the job. What he doesn't expect is to find a town of endearing misfits and their appointed leader, Marisa who knocks him sideways from the first time they meet.
Marisa and Terry have instant combustible chemistry; it just jumps out and grabs you.Read more ›

OK, if you don't have anything thing else to do.
Boring, the characters predictable, nothing interesting or exciting happened. The same bla, bla....until the end.
