Yikes! Walking in on my husband getting it on with his secretary was definitely not on my agenda for the day.

But I don't have time to deal with my marriage exploding. I'm headed home to deal with yet another family crisis.

Enter my best friend. Rebound sex is just what I need or at least that's what she thinks. Sneaky little brat even signs me up for internet dating.

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

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.’

‘Spammers – you do know what spammers are?’ He looks at the front row in question. They all nod in response. ‘Yes, those emails that ask me if I want a penis enlargement.’ Mild

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.

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

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 -

If you like your characters quirky, your inner monologue funny, and you have a good sense of humor about life's misadventures...this would be a good book for you!

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.

Molly really is a poor soul-a sarcastic, amazing, nerdy, strong and emotional type of poor soul but a poor soul indeed. Don't believe me? Read up a about her misadventures and all your doubts would be cleared up. This book was certainly one of a kind to read and one that you would definitely enjoy.

The humor starts right from the point where she sees her "loyal" husband and his secretary on HER couch doing the nasty. What a cliche right? That's what Molly thought too. And when her father had rep

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

* Heroine with high-powered job but crap love-life? Check. 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,

I really enjoyed the romance in this book. It was sweet and with a little sizzle. It felt pretty realistic. It’s a nice rainy day read.

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

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

Molly’s character is great, love her point of view on things. She would be a great friend to have.

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

What a fabulous tale of the delightfully hilarious, misadventures of Molly Smith.

If that's not enough, she has to deal with a divorce after walking in on her husband in a compromising position with his her own home!!

This is the story of Molly Smith—soon-to-be recently divorced from her cheating husband. Then she goes home to care for her sick father, who’s as loud and rude as they come. And trying to hire a nurse to care for the chauvinistic, old bastard sounded grueling enough. Of course, coming home doesn’t seem all that bad, especially when her old school crush hottie was still living next door. Imagine how ecstatic Molly felt when she learns that he had a crush on her, too. Oh, and he’s single again!

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.
