Just Add Water: Hetta Coffey Series, Book 1

Hetta Coffey is a globe-trotting civil engineer with attitude who is working on coming of age, a little late. Pushing forty and still single, Hetta is the epitome of the "B" word: bold, bossy, brassy, breezy, and brash. After leaving a lifelong swath of failed multinational affairs in her jet stream, it is no wonder Hetta prefers living with her dog, R.J. But old habits die hard, and trolling for triceps is Hetta's hobby....

Publisher's Summary

Hetta Coffey is a globe-trotting civil engineer with attitude who is working on coming of age, a little late. Pushing forty and still single, Hetta is the epitome of the "B" word: bold, bossy, brassy, breezy, and brash. After leaving a lifelong swath of failed multinational affairs in her jet stream, it is no wonder Hetta prefers living with her dog, R.J. But old habits die hard, and trolling for triceps is Hetta's hobby.

Plying the waterfront in search of Saturday brunch, Hetta's 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 hopes a floating Valhalla will overcome an all-time low-water mark in her life, Hetta buys her dream boat in spite of a spectacular ignorance of all things nautical. But a shadowy stalker, an inconvenient body, and Hetta's own self-destructive foibles imperil not only her new life, but a newly- found romance.

    "Not enought mystery"

    This was a funny story with a good plot. The characters are likable and believable. However the mystery doesn't come until the last quarter of the book. The rest of the book is more like a romance novel. But like I said the plot is good. If you want more mystery than romance this is not the book for you.

    Story
    "Not terrible, not great."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    A little juvenile. VERY light reading (listening), no little grey cells wasted on this one.


    Would you recommend Just Add Water to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not.
