Great Escaptes Book Tours: Molly's Misadventures

Romantic Comedy

Self Published

Release Date: January 11, 2016
Print Length: 225 pages

I’m having the suckiest day ever. First, my father, aka Mr. Grumpy Pants, calls to say his nurse just walked out on him. Likely story. I rush home to pack only to walk in on my husband getting it on with his younger, skanky secretary. Unfortunately, my quick weekend trip home to fix Dad’s problems turns into a stay of a few weeks. Luckily, I’ve got Danny, the neighbor boy I had a crush on when I was a dorky, braces-wearing, nose-buried-in-a-book teenager, and a brand-spanking new blog to keep my mind off things. Before I know it, I’m writing product reviews of vibrators and getting questioned by a store rent-a-cop at the world’s worst date ever. All while trying to figure out how to take things with Danny to the next level. Not to complicate things or anything but my boss decides to give me an ultimatum – come back in four weeks or don’t come back at all. How in the world did my life get so complicated?

Review: This is a book that requires at least a few OMGs in the review? Why? Because OMG it was so funny. No, not funny, FUNNY in all caps because it is laugh out loud funny in some places.

This is kinda chick lit but with a slightly more mature heroine. After all, chicklit is about twentysomethings and Molly is more a thirtysomething.

Molly is the kind of heroine that you will love and feel sorry for. I mean she walks in on her hubby doing the nasty with his secretary on her couch.


Then there's her dad. Again, OMG! Her dad will have you laughing too. He's kind of like Archie Bunker. He can't keep a nurse because he is well...totally uncensored. The only issue I had with dad was a bit of a research issue. My dad had COPD and was on oxygen. To the best of my knowledge most people that are on O2 24/7 do not have tanks that need to be changed. They have a compressor. So technically her dad didn't need a nurse that came every day. But I'll ignore that, because I really loved the story so much.

Danny, her crush/love interest was perfect. Loved him. Best hero ever. He was just a fun guy and I loved his daughter too. Maybe he was too perfect and accepting, but this is fiction and I want a guy like him.

Then there are the ladies at the blogging class. OMG! (really the OMGs are all necessary) So funny. Again, we all need people like them in our lives. I think the world would be a much happier place.

The best part of this book are Molly's blog posts. They are hilarious. (As are her adventures in dating)

This is  book that will make you feel great after reading it.
