This was a really touching book, because it wasn't just about the hero and the heroine, but also her extended family. It tackles some difficult issues, such as her mother's health and a friend's alcoholism, with delicacy and compassion. Not a lighthearted book at times, but very uplifting. Definitely a keeper!

In Agua Dulce, Texas, Mr. Patel informs Marisa Rutherford that their town of ten residents in West Texas has been bought over eBay. Marisa worries that the owner will build a modern monster petrol station that will put out of business her mom¿s Pecos Belle¿s Emporium & Eats. Marisa wonders what she and her Alzheimer¿s afflicted mom will do once the newcomer arrives. --- Realty speculator Terry Ledger knows even for him this million dollar gambit seems insane. However, he pictures a travelers¿ oasis in the middle of nowhere, but the ten citizens, that is those with their faculties, consider him an idiot. He soon realizes that his prime obstacle is the beautiful intelligent town leader Marisa if he can sell the concept to her, she will sell his plan to the others. However, as Terry works on the roadblock, he and Marisa begin to fall in love. He alters his plans to expand his persuasion to include Marisa as his life¿s partner, but she was burned once by love and fears touching a greater heat the second time around. --- SWEET WATER is a warm contemporary romance starring amiable lead protagonists and a town of eccentrics who meddle, matchmake and mother the stars. The changing relationship between Marisa and Terry make the tale on a personal level they begin to fall in love though she doubts her competency with those feelings on a professional level they are combatants with different dreams for the future of Agua Dulce and for one another. Though the solution seems too simple, fans will enjoy this slice of life in West Texas. --- Harriet Klausner
