I love Brockman's humour and her twists in plot. These books are a pleasure to read, but light reading, not too challenging or hard to figure out. Characters are engaging and loveable, allowing readers to escape happily into another life for an evening.

Last in Sunset Key trilogy Oct. 1 2009
By Tracy Vest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Widow Molly Cassidy inherits a rundown mansion that she hopes to renovate and turn into a B&B, but billionaire resort-owner Preston Seaholm wants to buy the waterfront property and won't take no for an answer. While trying to avoid becoming the poster boy for a tabloid that wants to honor him as the most eligible bachelor, he admits he is engaged, and with the time he has spent with the widow and her hearing-impaired son has the tabloids wagging their tongues and their poison pens. What starts out as a relationship of convenience soon turns far more passionate for both, but Molly isn't prepared to get involved with another emotionally challenged suitor.

The best and last in a trilogy set in Sunset Key, Florida, (see also The Kissing Game and Kiss and Tell), this is a stale reprint from Brockmann, who is more famous for help SEAL romances. The dialogue is a little trite, and certain plot points are brought up and then suddenly disappear... She does a great job crating chemistry with the leads, but overall, it is just an average read from the author's early archives.

June Nolen author of In Reverse Time July 18 2010
By June Nolen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Molly Cassidy has a chance at a new life. She's inherited the Kirk Estate on Sunrise Key and plans to turn it into a bed- and -breakfast.
However, billionaire Preston Seaholm wants to buy it from her.
Mr Seaholm seems to be a spoiled, rich man who always gets what he wants.
It doesn't take long for him to fall in love with Molly and her son and with his help she's able to achieve much more than her dream.
I didn't read the first two books in the trilogy but I didn't have any trouble following the storyline.
All in all, it was an enjoyable read but not a book that I would keep.

The author always writes a good love story. You wish that you could have the same happy ending for yourself.
Book 3, Sunrise Key Trilogy, Kindle Edition of Bantam Loveswept #824 from 1997 March 30 2013
By Kate McMurry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I read the Kindle version of this book, and it is well formatted and edited, making it easy to read.

Molly Cassidy is a 30-year-old widow with a bright, sensitive, 10-year-old son who has been diagnosed with progressive, irreversible hearing loss. She has inherited a dilapidated mansion on a small island called Sunrise Key, near the Western Panhandle of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. There are only a little over 600 residents on Sunrise Key, and one of the most eccentric of the bunch is a gorgeous, 35-year-old, divorced billionaire named Preston Seaholm. Molly hopes to turn the mansion into a Bed and Breakfast, but Preston keeps making her higher and higher offers to buy it. Molly constantly refuses his offers, but it is much harder to ignore Pres himself. He's sincerely interested in Molly's son, up to and including learning sign language in order to be able to talk to him more effectively, and Pres makes no secret of his intense attraction to Molly herself--an attraction that she fully reciprocates.

When Pres becomes a tabloid sensation after a notorious, erotic magazine names him Bachelor of the Year, Molly can't resist Pres's request that she help him fend off the paparrazzi by posing as his fiancee. Unfortunately for Pres, not only does this not solve Pres's initial problem, but the situation spins even further out of control.

This heart-warming and funny book provides a terrific conclusion to a wonderful, romantic-comedy trilogy. Molly and her son are very sympathetic characters, and Pres is both sexy and irresistibly kind and thoughtful. He's my favorite hero of this series.

Prior to discovering this trilogy, I hadn't realized Brockmann had written any comedies. She is best known for her SEAL, dramatic romances. Not everyone can write romantic comedy well. Brockmann does such a great job, I'm truly sorry she hasn't done any besides this trilogy, so far as I know.

I highly recommend this book for a fun, extremely entertaining read.
