Overview

He's traveled the world, but renowned photojournalist Dalton Parker has his reasons for staying away from one location: his family's Lazy P ranch. Now a calamity drags him back to Hatlow, Texas, to help out--and to face his past. But he's appalled to find that the cattle ranch has become home to a bunch of chickens. And he knows who's to blame: Joanna Walsh, the most challenging woman he's ever met.

Ever since Dalton strutted back into town, he's done his best to make Joanna's life hell. He's dead set on moving her organic egg farm off the Lazy P, and he riles her every chance he gets. But his bad behavior doesn't stop her from falling for him-or stop him from trying to get her into his bed. Yet when she learns the dark secrets of his past, she yearns to show him why returning home can be so deliciously sweet.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
Joanna Walsh is 35, single, softhearted, and ambitious, but when she sets up an organic egg farm on the Lazy P ranch, she may have gone too far. Or so famed photojournalist and sexy, commitment-phobic Dalton tells her, when at Joanna's urging he returns to help his mother run the ranch after his brother is critically injured. He's equally appalled at the ranch's finances and at chickens roaming the family's best cattle pasture, but he is drawn to Joanna's forthright and caring nature. Jeffrey's newest contemporary romance, with its authentic touches of West Texas ranching culture, colorful characters, and multiple levels of conflict, is a plainspoken and engaging story sure to please her loyal readers.

Romance novel readers who enjoy contemporary stories with characters the you will be thinking about long after you have read the last page will not want to miss reading Anna Jeffrey’s “Sweet Return,” as this novel has both in abundance and so much more!
www.romancejunkies.com - scarlet ?
SWEET RETURN is a fine example of a good solid character-driven romance. The cast is a strong ensemble, enhancing the story at every turn. With Joanna and Dalton as lead players I found myself caught up in the drama of each one’s life; bemoaning their hurts and cheering at every joy uncovered along the way. Dalton is a tortured soul who needs the love and solace Joanna is overflowing with, while she is made to feel beautiful and desirable, and needed by a strong and silent man. The love s

    ¿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¿.

    a sweet contemporary Texas romance

    In Hatlow, Texas Joanna Walsh owns a successful beauty salon business and an equally profitable making janitorial service. However, her latest business venture has proven to smell like rotten eggs. Her close friend of thirteen years cattle rancher Clova Cherry persuaded Joanna to join her in an organic egg enterprise as a means of saving her spread.---------------- Clova has two sons neither of which has helped her with the ranch. Lane is a drunk while Dalton is an internationally renowned photographer. When Lane ends up in an intensive care unit of Lubbock Memorial Hospital following a DUI accident, Dalton comes home from his Los Angeles base of operations to take his mom¿s cattle to market. Instead of cows he finds chickens and a thirty something woman who makes him dream of settling in West Texas. He accuses the chicken farmer of abusing the kindness of his mom she accuses the wandering son of abandoning his mom fifteen years ago leaving her to struggle to pay her debts. Obviously love is everywhere when these two enemies meet.---------- SWEET RETURN is a sweet contemporary Texas romance that sub-genre fans will enjoy reading as the lead couple is a workaholic pair who must find time in their busy regiment to battle, argue, and fall in love. Anna Jeffrey provides a warm fun tale.---------- Harriet Klausner

    Wordy and full of stereotypes

    Story premise was good but I'm not sure I'm even going to finish this one. Too many stereotypes, no real surprises, poor dialogue.

    Sexy, Fun Romance

    SWEET RETURN is sexy, funny, poignant, and a great romance. I laughed out loud when the hero returned to his family's cattle ranch and found Joanna's surprise. Dalton and Joanna are strong characters destined to have a memorable romance. The secondary characters are well done without overpowering the hero and heroine. It's an outstanding read. I grew up in West Texas, and Anna Jeffrey has the setting and characters down perfectly.
