Overview

There’s nothing left for Tara Sweet in landlocked Dexton, Missouri. Her fiancé called off their wedding, her sister is moving to Manhattan, and now her mother is marrying a much younger man with plans for a yearlong honeymoon in Europe. Tara believes a move back to her childhood home of Otter Bay, California, will help restore the fun and fearlessness she’s already missing in her twenties. Playing back memories of idyllic times spent there with her father along the majestic coast, a fairytale seems just around the corner.

Better make that a soap opera. After Tara finds a job in Otter Bay, makes friends at The Red Abalone Grill, and perhaps even a new flame in firefighter Josh, she begins to uncover shocking secrets about why her family left this heaven on earth all those years ago. And though she will have to question everything she has ever known, the faith that Tara must depend upon will be sweeter than ever before.

Endorsements:

Reading Sweet Waters is like taking a beach vacation from the comfort of your own living room.

Julie Carobini paints a beautiful story of fresh starts, painful secrets, and the depth of a family's love. The small town beach setting is as soothing as the sound of waves, and so well drawn I could almost smell the salt in the air. Engaging, fast paced, and romantic. Highly recommended.

Kathryn Cushman author of A Promise to Remember and Waiting for Daybreak

As sure as the ocean ebbs and flows with the tide, so life changes take the characters from one adventure to another in Julie CarobiniÕs latest release, Sweet Waters. Exhilarating, fresh and warm as the summer breeze, this book is fun from start to finish. Grab your tanning oil and beach towel and immerse yourself in a great read thatÕs sure to make a splash when it hits the store shelves!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Tara Sweet has had it with life in Missouri and decides to head home to coastal California where she has memories of a wonderful childhood before her father died. She expects to regain the happiness she once knew but instead discovers a complicated family history. A possible romance with a handsome firefighter and a future at the beach may not be enough to bring Tara the healing she seeks. VERDICT Carobini's third beach-themed chick-lit title (after Truffles by the Sea and Chocolate Beach) is competent young women's fiction and will appeal to readers who like Melody Carlson or Kristin Billerbeck.

    Disappointing.

    Reader reviews weren't available so I wasn't sure what to expect. Although the writing was good, I didn't care for the characters. Three sisters: one tries to live her life like a soap opera character she reads about on the internet, one is so negative about everything, and the other is so immature and flighty. Add to that a widowed mother who has always abdicated her parental responsibilities and forced them onto the first daughter. I read awile and think they are progressing, then all of a sudden they act worse than before. This will not be a book I read again.

    Loved It

    Tara Sweet's fiance has called off their wedding and her mother plans to marry a younger man and go on a long honeymoon to Europe. So Tara she decides to move back to Otter Bay, California where she grew up, thinking the wonderful life she left can be hers again. But what she finds are buried secrets about why her family left Otter Bay, stories about her father that are hard for her to accept. Add in a firefighter that she has a deep attraction for, problems with her sisters and you've got a very interesting story. The characters were very well written and I found myself eager to find out what was going to happen next. I liked that there was a Christian theme running throughout the book. The book was slow here and there but I liked it that way. It was an easy read with just the right amount of edge to it. I really liked this book and can't wait to read the next book from Julie Carobini.
