Brody went to Kate's shop to make sure she is doing okay. He had known her brother in Afghanistan and was with him when he died. He can't tell her who he is, but can't stop himself from going back again and again. He finds himself very attracted to Kate, and the more he's with her the more he falls for her. I really liked both Brody and Kate. Both of them are in pain from Andrew's death and both of them feel guilty. Brody promised Andrew that he would check on her and make sure she was moving ...more

Return of the Last Mckenna, Shirley Jump
Brody McKenna, physician in Newton, MA and he'd taken over when the older doc retired.
Kate Spencer runs the local sweet shop.
He had promised his friend, Kate's brother he'd go see her to help get over the loss. He had died in Afghanistan when Brody was there.
He got his brother Riley to talk to Stace, about their wedding cake and have agreed with Brody a cupcake cake would be perfect with their colors. He has to get that setup with Kate now.

I'm completely shocked at how much I loved this book! Brody made a promise to a patient in his last moments to make sure that his family moved on after his death. And Kate is the sister of the patient that Brody lost. This creates a conflict that carried the story till the end.

Out of all The McKenna Brothers books, this is the one that sticks in my mind the most and possibly edges it as my favourite of the three. Mostly because the plight of the hero, Brody McKenna, is so endearing and I just wanted to give him a great big hug whilst trying not to swoon.

I love the way all of the leading characters are woven throughout the series, so it feels like we're meeting up with old friends and you can get a real sense of the McKenna family, especially when you catch them all to

I loved all the McKenna and their stories but I think this is the one with the most heart. Sweet story of a doctor in Afghanistan promising a soldier on his death bed a visit to his sister to make sure she does not blame herself and that she is going to be ok. Problem is you have a sister who blames herself and a doctor who blames himself for not being able to save the vet.

once he is open with the sister on who he is and why he is there, they both start to heal. And fall in love.
