Review Blast: Letters to Molly by Devney Perry

Posted on

Molly and Finn Alcott had the picture-perfect marriage. With two gorgeous children, a lovely home and their own business, they were the couple others aspired to be. But when news of their divorce spreads through town like wildfire, it sends their beautiful image up in flames.

Molly spends years mending her broken heart. She finds joy in a life centered around her kids and career. Her happiness has a different picture now.

Then one day, she finds a letter in her mailbox. Written in Finn’s handwriting, dated over fifteen years ago, it’s a letter he wrote Molly after their first date.

Week after week, Finn’s letters appear. Each marks a date in their history. Each holds the confession of the man who still owns Molly’s heart. Each heals a wound from their past.

It’s just too bad Finn isn’t the one sending them.

MY REVIEW

“I put up boundaries to keep out the ugly. I embraced the beautiful. I found the Molly without Finn. This time around, I was holding onto her with a death grip. She was too important to loose again.”

“She tasted like mint and sunshine. She smelled like heaven and earth.”

“Be the man she needs or walk away.”

Letters to Molly is an emotional, second chance romance that is sure to take your emotions on a roller-coaster ride and leave you with all the feels.

Letters to Molly follows the story of Molly and Finn. Molly and Finn’s life appeared to be picture perfect. They had it all: great friendship, amazing sex, two adorable kids and a booming business. However somewhere along the way, Molly and Finn lost sight of what was important and their romance dissolved into flames. The following six years will really test Molly. She jumps into the roll of a single mom and tries desperately to mend her broken heart. Finally she’s at the point where she can be around Finn without feeling like she’s going to break apart. Molly’s life is anything but what she thought it would be. And even though her new happy is different than she imagined, she’s ok with it…. Just as Molly is getting ready to get out there and experience life again, her world gets turned upside down once again. She starts receiving letters that Finn wrote to her many moons ago. Letters that mark important moments in Finn and Molly’s story. Each letter pulling at her heart, and breaking it at the same time…..

Letter’s to Molly is angsty, heartbreaking and really tugs at your heart. Molly and Finn’s story is filled with anger, resentment, longing and hurt. Their journey is raw and unforgiving. The truths are real and not sugarcoated. Finn and Molly’s story, so incredibly well written, that it will feel like it is a part of you and that you are experiencing it right along with the characters. So many times, I was left wondering how these two characters could come back from all the damage they inflicted on one another. There was so much pain, so much devastation. I found myself on the edge of my seat, not wanting to put this book down. I had to know what would happen next. I had to know if Molly and Finn’s love was strong enough to survive the storm. And let me tell you, Devney Perry does not disappoint. Sure, there are lots of ups and downs and moments that feel like all hope is lost. But, I knew in my heart of hearts that this author would find away to make sense of the storm and see the characters come out to the other side.

Letter’s to Molly is an absolutely incredible read and I really enjoyed getting to know Molly and Finn. I thought the concept of the letters was really unique and I loved trying to figure out who was sending them. As painful as those letters were to read, I loved the honesty in them and how it forced these two characters to face their issues and finally hash things out.

Letter’s to Molly is a story that is going to make you feel. You will rage. Your heart will ache. You will get angry and want to put this book down. Your heart will swoon one minute and then break the very next. It is a story about the mistakes we make and owning up to them. It’s about letting go of the past and not letting go of that once in a lifetime love. It is a story that I know I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

In the end, all I can say is I’m glad that I trusted this author with my heart. The pain, the heartache, the journey…Ugh! It was so worth the ride…..
