Book Review-Just Add Water (Hetta Coffey Series, Book 1)-Jinx Schwartz

Friday, August 18, 2017

This book will keep you hopping--from bar to bar and from bad boy to bad boy. Hetta Coffey is looking for a guy in all the wrong places and dragging her friend right along with her. At this point the only male she truly trusts is RJ-a lab-. Hetta is also known for being somewhat of a flirt--ok a lot more then somewhat! Flirt outrageously--then dump them is the name of her game. In many ways she is also quite naive. Thankfully her cohert has her feet slightly more attached to the ground. You will certainly be shaking your head in exasperation at some of her antics. Meanwhile someone has been stalking her and somehow getting into her LOCKED house even after she has the keys changed. Then RJ is diagnosed with cancer-Hetta is devastated. She ends up buying a boat where she decides she is going to live--without RJ there-well I'm sure you know the feeling.

More bad choices--this woman never learns--and finally an actual good guy appears in her life-------

That's all folks--you will have to read the book to find out what happens next and why Hetta is being stalked!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Just Add Water, winner of the National EPPIE Award for BEST MYSTERY.

Hetta Coffey is a globe-trotting civil engineer with a swath of failed multi-national affairs in her jet stream.

Plying the San Francisco waterfront, trolling for triceps, her attention is snagged by a parade of passing yachts—especially their predominantly male skippers—and experiences a champagne-induced epiphany: If she had a boat, she could get a man.

In spite of a spectacular ignorance of all things nautical, Hetta buys her dream boat, but a shadowy stalker, an inconvenient body, and Hetta’s own self-destructive foibles imperil her goal. Hetta Coffey brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “sink or swim!”

Just add water sounds interesting yet fun and mysterious! Since I am to high risk for my eye surgery the Dr. is giving me, well not giving, you know, a pair of glasses that better suit my vision the way it is. This book is going on my list for right after they arrive. I like to live vicariously through characters, she sounds to be a fun one.
