Hey there, friends!
I hope you had a great weekend. I spent time reading and relaxing with the family. Covid life has helped me get to many books on my TBR pile. Of course, I keep adding books but that’s the avid reader life, right? :)
Today I wanted to share a book recommendation with you. It’s Molly by Sarah Monzon, the first book in her Sewing in SoCal series.
About the Book
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?
Y’all, Sarah Monzon has crafted a laugh-out-loud, swoon-enticing read! I had the distinct pleasure of reading Molly has a rough draft because I’m Sarah’s critique partner. However, I loved it so much I got my own copy in multiple forms. What can I say, I love a good book!
Molly, herself, is witty, brutally honest, and a loyal friend. All of those traits make for hilarity between her and her friends and her and the hero, Ben.
And speaking of Ben, he has to be one of the best heroes Sarah has created. The love he has for his daughter brings us some endearing moments and the grief he’s overcoming has you reaching for the tissues. But when he decides how he feels about Molly, be prepared to gracefully flop onto your swooning couches.
Since Molly is the first book in the Sewing in SoCal series, you get to meet the other girls in the group and I can guarantee, you won’t want to miss their stories either.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book. My review was not required nor influenced.
