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?
It 's a really funny romance, well written in an easy-to-read style which is just what I need at the end of a busy day. The cantankerous father of Molly has chased away another caregiver. She has to leave suddenly for Wisconsin to solve the problem. But coming home earlier than expected finds her husband on the couch with his secretary. He argues that it's just fun, that is fault of Molly who is always traveling but she doesn't agree While trying to find a new person to take care of her father, she enjoys the company of her handsome neighbor and her adolescent crush, Danny. Molly also has the brilliant idea to start a blog "the misadventures of Molly." Will he find serenity and a man who loves her? Molly is a great character and very realistic. She's funny, smart, a little insecure. I loved her blog, I'd love to write like her. Her father is a sprightly old grouch, very sexist (women only have to wash the dishes) but very affectionate with his princess. Danny is so charming and sexy, easy to fall in love with him. I loved this book and once I started I could not put it down. Each pages leaves me with a smile on my face. It is an entertaining and relaxing read, is full of fun. Very enjoyable for great beach reading or a break from routine.
About The Author
I grew up reading everything I could get my hands on from my mom’s Harlequin romances to Nancy Drew to Little Woman. When I wasn’t flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although I did manage every once in a while to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic after returning to the law. Another job change, this time from lawyer to B&B owner and I was again fed up and ready to scream I quit, which is incredibly difficult when you own the business. Thus, I shut the B&B during the week and in the off-season and started writing. Several books later I find myself in Istanbul writing full-time.
