My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4 love-filled stars to Crazy Little Town Called Love! 💗 💗 💗 💗
Don’t let those cute heart emojis or the adorable title fool you, Molly has a difficult story to tell. She’s thirty-two and has found herself at an abrupt crossroads. Not only did her long-term boyfriend leave, he left her in possible financial ruin.
Luckily for Molly, she finds respite and a new start in a lovely town called, of all things, Love. Molly’s deceased mother grew up in Love, and a home and a General Store in need of some TLC have been willed to her. Love isn’t as quaint as it first appears. This town has secrets and its own share of heartache.
Molly throws herself into fixing up the store, and the town of Love becomes its own character in the story; there are fun people to love and different events and happenings, along with those secrets I mentioned earlier. Eventually, Molly begins receiving cryptic threats, and she has to decide if she should leave Love and her new life and love she’s found behind.
Crazy Little Town Called Love is book two in The To-Hell-and-Back Club series; however, it stands very much on its own. The “Hell Club” is for women to support other women who have also experienced tremendous loss. Molly certainly has had her share. I enjoyed getting to know her and watching her grow stronger while living and working in Love. This book is cozy and inviting, with a dab of mystery and a charming touch of love.
Thank you to the author for the copy. Crazy Little Town Called Love will be published on July 11, 2018!
Thirty-two-year-old Molly’s cushy life in Minneapolis tanks when her long-time boyfriend bails on her and their underwater-mortgaged home.
She needs a place to live and a new job—and the answer to both may be in a quaint town called Love. The town where her deceased mother grew up, a town where an old General Store and home have been willed to Molly’s family…a town with secrets and people with long memories.
Can she trade her acrylic nails for pounding nails to revive a fixer-upper store? Molly is ready for a do-over and a chance to prove to herself that she can make it on her own.
She puts elbow grease, heart, and half her savings, into giving the old place a facelift. As her business grows, so does her relationship with Jackson—the owner of the hardware store—and great-nephew to the woman who willed her business to Molly’s family.
The tourist town of Love brims with quirky townspeople and fun events. And it is at one of these events that Molly is first threatened.
Apparently, not everyone is happy to have her in town. As threats against her escalate, Molly has to decide if she’d be better off leaving Love or staying to fight for the life she’s created in the town that has stolen her heart.
