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 ...more

If you are looking for a thoroughly entertaining romantic comedy that will keep you stitches, then look no further, Molly's Misadventures is the book for you!

Author D.E. Haggerty weaves a delightfully humorous tale written in the first person narrative that follows the trials and tribulations in thirty-something Molly's life. Molly's life was going well: a great job and family in NYC, who could ask for more ... that is until her life got turned upside down when she received an urgent call from h

This was a hoot. From the beginning where Molly comes home to see the asshat of a husband defiling her couch to her thoughts on her father’s next door neighbor, the bedazzling fiasco and dates from heck. Even the blogging classes with the old ladies especially the one who reads erotic novels this story is so entertaining.

Molly is a provider. That is what she does. She provides for herself. She is self sufficient but she also is afraid. Afraid of failing at something she loves. When her marriage

Molly’s Misadventures by D.E. Haggerty was a hilarious 5 star read.
Romance, Ugly cry, cheating husband, grumpy old man, Hot Alpha high school crush

I kind of figured out what they were up to the second I saw Darryl’s somewhat saggy looking naked butt. Looks like that gym membership isn’t paying off.
“Listen, babe,” Mr. Unfaithful began. “It’s not serious. Just a little recreation.”

Could nothing go right for Molly? I was drawn in right from the beginning and

I'm a big fan of this author's Grey Haired Knitting Detective series, so I was thrilled to find out she was publishing a new romantic comedy. I was definitely not disappointed!

This book was so much fun to read. I especially liked how each chapter begins with an Internet posting from Molly. Her sarcastic biting wit and innate sassiness really make her a great character.

Molly's father, her friend Dianne, and the "boy next door" Danny are also enjoyable characters. Their interactions keep the laug

If you are looking for a book that will make you LOL, then look no further than this book!

I don't even know if I can express how much I enjoyed this book. The book had me laughing in quite a few places especially when Molly was writing her blog posts about her date disasters. There were many witty one liners (which I wish I had marked) and I sped through this book gobbling up every word and situation with Molly and her family and friends.

I think I felt like I could relate to Molly in some ways -

This is a book that requires at least a few OMGs in the review? Why? Because OMG it was so funny. No, not funny, FUNNY in all caps because it is laugh out loud funny in some places.

This is kinda chick lit but with a slightly more mature heroine. After all, chicklit is about twentysomethings and Molly is more a thirtysomething.

Molly is the kind of heroine that you will love and feel sorry for. I mean she walks in on her hubby doing the nasty with his secretary on her couch.

Back in the day, before there was such a thing as a Kindle and I discovered an entire new world of books and authors, Molly's Misadventures was exactly the type of book I was drawn to...funny, sweet, light-hearted, a perfect blend of everything I loved in Chicklit. And now, with so many books filled with angst and drama, with crazy exes and horrible parents, with damaged heroes and flaky heroines, at times I find myself craving the levity that a really good romcom can bring to my world.

D.E. Haggerty has done it again. Molly's Misadventures is a wonderful romp through the ups and downs of Molly, a character that is so real, she feels like one of your friends.

It contains the completely believable ups and downs of a woman in her mid-thirties, who seemed to have it all, only to have it all crash down.

In Molly’s Misadventures, author D. E. Haggerty efficiently nails almost every chick lit trope out there.

Having chucked her dreams of becoming a writer in favor of the high salary and chance to work for great boss and friend Blake, Molly only has two problems. One is her mean, foul-mouthed father she is dutifully caring for, and the other is her very-soon-to-be-ex husband. “Every time I closed my eyes, I saw a vision of Darryl’s naked,

What a fun read. From the first page till the last one, I couldn't put this book down. I laughed and moaned with the author as Molly went from one adventure to another. I couldn't help but love her as the author flushed her out to a totally believable person. She has all the problems most 30 year olds have in today's society and tackles everything head on. Her love life took a major dump with a jerk of a husband. This is a kind of coming of age or growing up book. I was wondering about her relat ...more

Reading romance comedies can be very funny and very relaxing and this book is very entrtaining. It has a good mix between romance and comedy so it dont get to be over the edge or to much like some books can be.

The story is okay, but I dont know, I couldnt really get into the story as I hoped I would. It was a good book and I liked it but I got bored becaue the story itself is not uniqe and it felt like I have read the book before even if I hadent. The book is well written and there is a clear st

I first discovered D. E. Haggerty when I read her Grey Haired Knitting Detectives cozy mysteries. When I found out she’d written a romantic comedy, I knew I would be in for a treat. What I didn’t know was that I would develop a side-ache from laughing so hard.

Molly’s having a bad day. She gets a call from her father in Florida telling her his nurse just up and left. But that’s nothing compared to walking in her front door to find her husband buck naked and screwing his skanky secretary. I love t

I loved this book from beginning to end. I knew I was in for a good laugh when the very first sentence was "My soon to be ex-husband is a rat bastard." That just struck me as funny and really prepared me for the quirkiness that is Molly Smith. Molly is someone I could see being friends with. She just seemed so realistic. She's quirky without being over the top crazy.

Given how her life is going, Molly could really use a good friend. But through it all, she kept her fun and positive attitude. This

This is such a fun read starting out with Molly rushing home from work in order to pack to go to find a new nurse for her sick father. What a surprise when she finds her husband having sex with his secretary on her couch. Okay that part isn't fun but it gets really funny as it goes on. Molly goes to her father's house (where she grew up) and while she is interviewing nurses for him she connects with her old friend Dianne.

Molly's Misadventures tells the story of Molly, a married woman in her 30s who works as personal assistant to multi-millionaire, who rushes home one day to prepare to fly out of town to help her ailing father, only to find her husband screwing his secretary on their lovely couch.

She loved that couch.

Molly flies home to Wisconsin, where she hasn't been in years, and reconnects not only with old friends, but with the cute boy next door she had a crush on while growing up. Of course, he's not a boy

Can you still live your dreams even when everything is falling down around you. Molly has a wonderful job and loving husband so she thought. A grumpy Dad that needs a new nurse again and a mother that wants her to be someone else.

Molly has just left her cheating husband and she has gone to look after her dad until she can find a new nurse for him once again.

The way the author pulled me in from the first few pages. How Molly kept her cool in some of these situations, I give the girl credit, I know I would have lost it! It seemed like Molly was talking right to the reader and that was what I really liked about this book. The author made the reader feel like we were right there while it was all happening.

I received this book as an exchange of an honest review through #30DayReadingIndie.
Molly's life is not at all easy when she has to return to her hometown to take care of her father, who lives complaining about everything and is a very difficult person to deal with, and to complete, she still finds her husband going on with his secretary.
But what it seemed to be a bad thing in Molly's life, ends up being the push she needed to finally chase her dreams, and with the help of Danny and little Jenny,

Molly Smith has just caught her husband with his pants around his ankles and his secretary bent over the couch as she came home to pack a bag to fly to her sick dad's place. More than ever she is looking for a fresh start but just hasn't decided how to go about doing it.

Luckily for her, Dianne, her "best friend" sets in motion the beginnings of a blog for Molly called "Molly's Misadventures" and then gets her on a dating website where she blogs all about it. Then of course next door is her child

Favorite Quotes:

“I used the word ‘run’, but really it’s more like a slow jog. Seriously, small children overtake me all the time.”

“‘Well, I’m Mildred,’ says the last of the ladies. ‘I want to start a book blog so I can write about the erotic romances I read without my grandchildren having a conniption fit… I’m old, not dead.’”
