Pat's Review: Letters to Molly

Letters to Molly by Devney Perry
Publisher: Devney Perry (June 18th, 2019) 
Series: Maysen Jar, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Dual 1st POV

Molly Alcott didn’t expect to open her mailbox one summer morning and find an old letter stuffed between bills and a supermarket flyer. Penned in familiar handwriting, dated over fifteen years ago, the letter was written to Molly after her first date with the man she’ll never forget.

Week after week, new letters appear. Each marks an event in the history of their epic love affair. Each heals a wound. Each holds the confession of the man who still owns Molly’s heart.

The letters are full of promise, hope and love, but truth be told, Molly wishes she could unread them all.

Because the man who wrote these letters is not the one sending them.

Pat's Review:

This second in the Maysen Jar series nearly emotionally broke me. The characters are strong and vibrant, the story grabs your attention from the first page and doesn’t let go. The growth in Molly and Finn (mostly Finn) makes this second chance love story so engaging.

Molly Alcott is a single Mom, working in a small restaurant with her best friend and former sister-in-law Poppy, called The Maysen Jar.

 Molly and her ex-husband Finn used to be “that” couple in college. Always together, lots of PDA, and everyone knew they would have their happily ever after. And they did for a while. They owned and worked a landscaping business they started, and it grew by leaps and bounds. They squeezed two wonderful kids in, but soon the business was more important than they could control. Arguments became normal, and after a particularly bad one, Molly made the biggest mistake in her life. Next thing she knew she had a lawyer, trying to figure out custody issues and a very broken heart.

Finn let his anger take over his life, and was barely polite when having to see Molly. He dated, and gave everything to the business. Lately though, he found dating was really not all that enjoyable, and has even stayed for dinner or taken Molly and the kids out for pizza. Molly’s life was finally looking up. As Molly and Finn seemed to be growing closer, letters started appearing in her mailbox. No stamp, they just appeared. She realized after the first one, they were letters Finn had written her, and never sent her, when they were first dating. As each letter came, Molly and Finn try to figure out who was putting them in her mailbox. But the letters started them talking, which they desperately needed. They talked like they should have when everything fell apart. But, Finn knew if the letters kept coming, they were going to be hurtful, and feared their renewed feelings would be destroyed. How could he stop them?

This beautiful second chance love story could be read on it’s own, but The Birthday List adds so much to the depth of Molly and Finn’s relationship.

I have a feeling both of theses stories will be re-read a lot.
