Now she's starring in her own version of "Romancing the Stone"--except that this is her "life." Her adventure begins with a trip to Mexico's Yucat n coast to search for the father she doesn't remember. She finds him, all righ ...more

Now she's learned that not only is he not dead, he's living in a small town south of the border. In the process of tracking him down, she manages to get framed for theft and pursued by the real thief, the police and a local crime boss. Her Father's friend Jack Keller agrees to help her escape, although Lorraine's reluctant to depend on a man li ...more
Would you like some cake with that frosting?

Don't get me wrong, I love happy endings. In fact, when a book like this doesn't end happy, I feel immensely disappointed. But in this case, the ending was even too sappy for me. It dragged on and on until the author had tucked away all the loose ends and wrapped the story in shiny purple paper with a big yellow bow.

Even though there was a lot of violence and danger in this book, the only people who ended up dead were the bad guys. Any mistakes or re
Still cleaning off the shelves ....

Well, it was better than the last one I read. Barely.

At least this time the romance developed somewhat naturally. So, um, yay for that?

But then you have two people who are meant to be scary as all get out villains. It was... hyped. Then the ending just crashed and failed and they got their endings too quickly.

Romance novel. Yes, I know. But that doesn't mean you can just make the villains less creepy.

Eh. started out not so innocent enough. stayed that way. Ultimately not for me.

Moon Over Water by Debbie Macomber

The story also follows Thomas and his love for Jenny and holding his daughter before he headed off to the war.

As I was listening to this audio book, it sounded so familiar, as possible could have read this years ago. (Deliverance Company #3). Possibly the Moon over Water version. A good read about Lorraine who discovers after the death of her mom, her dad (Thomas) is actually still alive (was told he died with leukemia when she was a child). As she is planning her wedding, she drops everything in search of her father. She travels to Mexico to a small town south of the border and finds her father has a n ...more

I always enjoy Debbie Macomber books. This was no exception. Nice plot. Woman was raised to believe that her father died of leukemia when she was five years old. Mom died and she found out that Dad was alive and well living in Mexico. She goes down to meet him and become involved in a robbery of a Mexican artifact. Dan has his best friend Jack sail her out of the country pronto. They are chased by the guy who stole the artifact and another guy who are lady angered on her way. She falls in love w ...more

"Lorraine Dancy has always been a dreamer, but she couldn't imagine finding her long lost father, getting framed for the theft of a priceless artifact and having to make a daring escape all in the same trip to Mexico. With both the cops and the local crime boss after her, she's pretty relieved--and completely smitten--when renegade Jack Keller comes to the rescue. She just hopes that they both live long enough to act out the rest of her romantic fantasy."

This is a departure for Debbie Macomber -
Moon Over Water is the 3rd in Debbie Macomber’s Deliverance Company series. After Lorraine Dancy’s mother dies, she discovers that the father she thought was dead is, in fact, alive and well in Mexico. Determined to find him, she travels to the Yucatan coast, where she ends up being framed for the theft of a priceless artefact. Her father begs Jack Keller, ex-Deliverance Company mercenary, to take her back to the US on his boat. Although Lorraine is engaged, she’s attracted to Jack, even though ...more

The Sooner the Better

Great book like you would expect from Debbie Macomber loved it. Was a book I could not put down. Lots of twists and turns.
I grabbed a paperback book out of the bag of hundreds to read while on vacation and Macomber's book, Moon Over Water ended up in my suitcase. It was an easy, quick (I finished it in a day), enjoyable read for vacation. And it was appropriate that I happened to be vacationing in Mexico.

The Sooner the Better by Debbie Macomber is a wonderful playful novel. It starts off extremely sad when Lorraine Dancy learns her mother died. When she gets the contents of her mothers safety deposit box she finds a letter from her father to her mother, written after the date when her father supposedly passed away. She goes down to Mexico to meet her father and gets mixed up in a crime which would land her in jail if it was not for her fathers quick thinking. He puts her on a boat and tells his ...more

I totally thought this was just another trashy love story. I don't like
reading about the details of someone kissing or making love. You don't
have to write word for word about something we all ready know! I disliked
the swear words on every page, most every page. Though the story was
average. I just didn't like the style...I am glad for the author's
latest books have calmed down, allot!!
Nice easy & quick read. I needed a break from the heavy books I have been reading. MacComber delivered an engaging story as expected
What I read was titled "The Sooner the Better" Copyright 1998, it's the same story but with a different book cover, and title. Although I liked the story, a few things bothered me terribly. The point where Lorraine was chasing after Jack screaming "it's not over" (I almost thought she was going to drop down and grab him by the pant leg...ughh, she had plenty of time to confess her little secret and didn't, which could have avoided their long separation later on, and Jacks deception near the end ...more
Good read. Title differs from book read but Debbie Macomber in this instance is a winner.
A mystery with a love story! What excitement and fun.

Deliverance Company #3 Another hot story....
The story is complete on how a bunch of soldiers give up their mercenary ways to find love and family. After being dumped in book #2 Jack is living the life on a boat in the waters around Mexico. He goes to high alert to help his buddy Thomas, whose daughter just showed up in Mexico but has the Mexican authorities after her. Lorraine left her fiance in Louisville to find her father, who she think has been dead. Raine finds her dad and Jack's heart, wil
The suspense was fun. But the family issues are awful. Thomas and Ginny- what awful people if you think about them. Fidelity is a big issue with many of the characters - so easy for them to go on to the next person without a look back. The author tries to tell how good they are, but not true. Lorraine should have needed a lot of therapy to work through all the things that happend to her. I doubt that mercenary men would really want to settle into farm and family life with lots of kids.

But if you
Too predictable for me.

wrong book listed
I checked this book out of the library on a whim and actually really liked it. This is only my second book by Debbie Macomber, but I think I'll be reading more of hers in the future. There were some parts that seem completely unbelievable - the whole Raine and Gary thing both going in different directions at the same time, the fact that she didn't want him to come with her to Mexico, and that she and Jack fell in love so quickly. But at the end of the day, it was a book that I enjoyed and read p ...more

OK I'm not a big reader of the typical romance. I get annoyed that so often, the soon-to-be lovers hate each other at the start etc. But I did actually enjoy the Dakota series, so I gave Moon Over Water a try.

I give Macomber A for character. She creates interesting, dimensional people.
For plot...well... Just TOO far beyond. My willing suspension of disbelief wouldn't suspens.

If you love formla romance, this will please you.

Follow your bliss,

I usually like author Debbie Macomber for a lighter romantic read. I listened to this particular title on audio out of order from the other two books in the Deliverance Series. The plot kept my attention. However, I felt the romance going on between the two main characters - Jack & Raine - was a bit superfical and disjointed. Not very believable.

I will still read or listen to Debbie Macomber titles but will not pursue the other two in this particular series.
This was my first Debbie Macomber book. It was interesting enough to hold my attention, but was pretty predictable in its ending. I did enjoy the twists and turns along the way in reading the book. I had a couple of sick days and read through the book pretty quickly. I would recommend this book if you are wanting a book to read while on vacation or if you are sick in bed and need something to occupy your time. Interesting characters and interesting plot.
