Review: Molly by Sarah Monzon

This was a fun story. I really liked the way the chemistry developed between Ben and Molly. I have to admit, though, as I first started reading this book, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Molly. There is a difference between being truthful and spewing information that is not age appropriate at children. I did not like that Molly did not seem to know how to balance the two, and I hoped she would learn common sense regarding her truth telling.

But she ended up really growing on me and I appreciated learning her background regarding why she had developed this truth telling compunction.

Molly’s empathy and her caring toward Ben and his daughter, Chloe, was perfect. Her sweet heart was obvious in those moments.

Ben was a great character who had loved his late wife dearly. It was great to see him awaken to love again as his feelings for Molly emerged. He felt like a very real character, just making his way through work each day and trying to be a good father to his daughter. There were plenty of lighthearted and fun moments in this romantic comedy novel, but good heart moments, as well.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I absolutely refuse to tell a lie no matter the consequences. So don’t ask me a direct question unless you’re prepared for a direct answer—that’s something my SoCal sewing girlfriends have learned the hard way.
But who would have thought my honesty policy would get me fired from my job at the preschool? Or that a desperate—and not to mention devastatingly handsome—single father of one of my (now-former) students would hire me that same day as a nanny for his daughter?
I’m an education professional. How hard can taking care of a four-year-old and her over-stressed, over-worked father be?
