Molly by Sarah Monzon

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?

My Thoughts
This was a charming and cute story! I was smiling at the opening line and many times throughout!
Molly was fun, if a little quirky, and I loved her! I am a nanny myself so when she got her new job I could relate to a lot of her circumstances (though I have a couple more charges than she did)! Her refusal to tell a lie was admirable even if it did get her into sticky situations with kids! It gave me a good laugh though!
Ben was sweet and I loved how hard he worked to be there for Chloe despite his demanding job. He had been dealt a hard blow, losing his wife and having to care for a newborn while working to become a doctor but I admired the way he did his best and didn’t shirk away from any of the hard.
The two of them were cute together and I enjoyed watching their romance play out! Chloe was also fun and authentically written-as someone who works with kids I hate when they are portrayed incorrectly but I loved how real she was!

My only complaint with this book was the random political soapbox that got thrown in that came out of left field and didn’t make any sense with the story. But it wasn’t enough to detract me from enjoying the book and overall loving the story! I’m looking forward to the next books in this cute series!
