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?

My Review

MOLLY is about a quirky, won't-tell-a-lie woman who finds that her honesty has landed her jobless, but is rescued by one of her former student's father who needs a nanny. She has a group of friends who are a riot, who gather regularly for their sewing group (although some of them come for moral and food support and not to sew). Mix in an adorable four-year-old and sparks between her father and the new nanny and you have a delightful read!

Molly was seriously such a quirky, sweet, and fun character! A bit radical in her desire to always be one hundred percent honest (and not always in ways I agreed with), but it's that tendency that lands her as a nanny for the dashing Dr. Ben. What ensues is a heartfelt story with plenty of humor and a few sparks. I particularly loved the scene when Ben shows up to help Molly's friend who cut her foot. So hilarious! I'm very curious to see how the other stories who center on the rest of the friends in this group turn out.

My one complaint would be the ending. I was enjoying the slowly-building romance and then it just seemed to speed up and be done and all tied with a bow without further development. I also wasn't too keen on Ben's parents and what was decided at the end either - it felt like a forced and a bit of an unrealistic plot point when Ben has a three bedroom house, among other things.

In the end, was it what I wished for? This was a very entertaining read! Great characters, a sweet child, plenty of humor, and a delightful romance.
