Molly (Sewing in SoCal #1) by Sarah Monzon {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 


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?

A Carol award finalist and Selah award winner, Sarah Monzon is a stay-at-home mom who makes up imaginary friends to have adult conversations with (otherwise known as writing novels). As a navy chaplain's wife, she resides wherever the military happens to station her family and enjoys exploring the beauty of the world around her.

If you are looking for your next good romance read, look no further than Molly- the first book in Sarah Monzon's new Sewing in SoCal series. 

In this book, we meet Molly, obviously. She is studying to be a teacher, but she has one little problem: she cannot tell a lie. While that doesn't sound like much of a problem, but it certainly gets her in trouble at times. As such, she finds herself fired from her job as a teacher's aid. Thankfully, a handsome doctor and single father comes to her aid and offers her a job taking care of his daughter. Sparks fly and create a fun romance that will have you smiling from start to finish. 

This book truly had everything that a good RomCom should have. The characters were quirky and likeable... and not just the romantic leads but the various side characters as well. I loved meeting the other women in Molly's sewing club, and found myself looking forward to getting to know them better in future books. The premise is unique and leads to lots of laughs--- right from the very start! I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions, that's for sure. And it was a CLEAN read too, which is great for those of us who enjoy the romance without anything extra. Personally, I must admit I enjoyed some of the SoCal and military references as well as it brought me back to our days stationed in California.

Overall, this was a fun read, and a super quick one too. If you enjoy a sweet, romantic comedy, this is certainly one worth checking out!
