    I don't know if I can stand to read this since it seems to be a RO-mance book, but I found it on my bookshelves and thought I'd give it a try.* * * * *Well, it was one of those love 'em/hate 'em RO-mance stories with a few fairly explicit sex scenes, but mostly it was about a crazy family that was totally unrealistic (very wealthy, all virtuosos, living on a private island with some zoo animals). However, I did enjoy it in spite of all those drawbacks, rather surprising myself.

    If you'd like a fun book to escape in that doesn't require a lot of deep thinking, try Catching Kelly. It was light hearted fun. Kelly has returned home - a private island in Florida - to save her zany family from a supposed money hungry ex-football player. Over a few days reconnecting and meeting Mr. Football, she realizes she had been living under a lot of assumptions. Although this is a romance, I enjoyed the zany family, their adventures and the island setting much more than the couple. What Kelly fails to realize is that most families are a bit off and embarrasing. I didn't sympathize with her much and she came across as annoying. The attraction to Seth was a bit confusing too, as they're such opposites. A fun read but not a go-to romance.

    It's been eight years since Kelly Burke has seen her crazy family. Suddenly, she finds herself rushing home to protect them from a con man honing in on the family's finances. Seth Ralston is hiding out on the Burke Family island after injury ended his career and divorce turned his life upside down. Can Kelly protect her unique family from Seth? Does she need to?Catching Kelly is one of Sue Civil-Brown's humorous tales set in Paradise, FL. Brown's unique, off beat characters will keep you coming back for more. And you'll find yourself laughing at the antics of the geriatric crowd. Oh the trouble they can stir up.My favorite line: "He's still at the single-cell stage of development. And what can you do with one cell? Civilizing it is hopeless."

    If you like a wacky story line you'll love the cast of zany secondary characters in this one, unfortunately, the romance isn't nearly as interesting. The heroine is whiny, selfish, childish and very difficult to sympathize with. Seth, the hero, is terrific though and he so deserved a mature, loving woman to spend the rest of his life with. Instead he got Kelly and I nearly wanted to tear my hair out!

    Another Paradise Island story. This time Kelly comes back to the island to save her crazy family from a football player from stealing the family fortune. Her family is the only thing that keeps this story from being boring. Each one is eccentric and they remind Kelly that everyone has something to offer, including her. This book was a fun read but I would have liked to have seen more from the Hole in the Wall Gang.

    I love when I get to use/ read the octogenarian word! This story reminds me of the Addams family, this book is quirky and hilarious with all the little innuendos about Kelly's family, for anyone who may think their family is weird, this one really puts that into perspective.

    I loved this book! I loved the relationship between Kelly and Seth and the way it built. Also Kelly's relationship with her family was beautiful the way it grew and changed. The ending felt just a little rushed, but over all I loved the way the story ended.

    This is an author that I have read a lot of and have added her books to my 'keeper' book shelf. Most I have read at least twice and some even more than that.
