    ┬┐Sweet Water┬┐ was better. 5/31/08

    Dalton Parker is a photo journalist who travels all over the world to hot spots. For 20 years he has all but ignored the mother and brother, Lane, he left behind in Hatlow, Texas. When he was growing up his stepfather beat him, and his brother, and Dalton has never been able to forgiven his mother for allowing it to happen. Now when Lane is in a near fatal accident when driving drunk, Dalton agrees to come home temporarily to help his mother with her ranch. When he pulls in the driveway he sees a small chicken farm, on his mother¿s land, run by Joanna Walsh. Joanna is 35 years old and runs a beauty salon and beauty supply store. She has become good friends with Clova, Dalton¿s mom, who is very lonely as she has no family with her anymore. Clova talked Joanna into putting a chicken farm on her land to keep her only real friend close. Joanna agreed but the toll of all her businesses and the work involved with each is wearing her down. Dalton and Joanna clash immediately but soon become attracted to each other and actually start to like each other. She¿s afraid he¿s a one night stand man and he¿s afraid she¿ll want a relationship he doesn¿t feel he can give. It was a nice change to read a book with main characters that are actually approaching 40. It seems like anymore they¿re under 30. But Dalton, for his age and experience, was on the immature side. He believed Joanna guilty of motives she didn¿t have and took off without explanations, leaving her crushed. His involvement with Candace was puzzling too. She lived with him for a year, granted not faithfully, and wanted to marry him even though he told Joanna the only thing Candace cared about was the way she looks and becoming an actress. They supposedly broke up before he left for Texas. His end of a cell phone conversation with Candy in front of Joanna, ¿Hey babe it¿s me. I¿m sore all over. I need one of your, ah, rubdowns.¿ ¿Aww you¿re a sweetheart, honey. I miss you too, baby.¿ Doesn¿t sound broken up to me and if they really are it sure sounds like he¿s leading her on. Also Dalton and Joanna never told each other than they loved them. I guess I just need to hear that in a romance novel. This was good but not as good as ¿Sweet Water¿.
