Molly is such an entertaining character, and Sarah Monzon creates many laugh out loud moments in the story as Molly is so honest that she refuses to tell a lie. I’m sure many of us know someone in our lives who is like that…with no filter, but genuinely trying to the right thing by being honest no matter what. The close friendship that Molly has with her sewing girlfriends is heartwarming, and I can’t wait for more of these friends’ adventures as the Sewing in SoCal series continues.
As I was reading this novel, the only difficulty I had was that the main characters, Ben and Molly, both had their stories told in first person. Although Ben and Molly’s first-person stories were in different chapters, I had several interruptions from my own young children as I was reading and I would forget who was telling that chapter of the story…Ben or Molly.
Even though the tone of this novel is light and fun, Sarah Monzon does touch on some topics that are extremely relevant to our current times, such the beauty of diversity and renouncing prejudice and racism. I look forward to reading Jocelyn’s story in book two of the series! Well done!
Molly is recommended for fans of inspirational romantic comedy.

The faith content rating for this book is a 2 (light faith message).
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?
