Throwback Thursday: Otherwise Engaged by Suzanne Brockmann
Author: Suzanne Brockmann
First published in 1997 by Loveswept
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.
This is the third book in the Sunrise Key Trilogy. I was a bit disappointed that it didn't really have any of the characters from the first two book in it. One makes a brief appearance but that's it really. Out of the three, this was probably my least favorite. I seemed like it was written as an afterthought and didn't really fit with the first two.
Preston is a billionaire who wants to buy Molly's house. She won't sell. In the ensuing pursuit, they fall for each other. I liked both characters and did understand their reluctance to fall in love. But they sped toward it anyway. I'm not sure I totally bought into the scenario of let's pretend we are getting married. It just felt too forced. It's not a bad story, it just wasn't my favorite.
