Warning: This description contains spoilers for Molly 1 and 2. Do not read until you have read the first two books!
Sarah Hartley was a single, working-class mother, raising her son, Tommy, happily, working in a bakery, and saving change to take her son south on vacation. That was eight years ago, before she met a deranged serial killer and kidnapper.
After Sarah came to discover that the woman she thought was her friend, who was living under her roof, caring for her son, was not who she said she was, Sarah fought for her life and saved her son and young Leif from being taken by Tamara Klein, a deranged, mentally-ill kidnapper and serial killer who was posing as a suburban single-mom, Molly Johnson.
Five years later, Molly has taken Tommy and Leif from Sarah. The man Sarah thought that she loved was actually Molly’s husband, and Sarah’s world falls apart. Sarah has been hospitalized for the past three years. Despite the best efforts of Officer Alex Bradley and the Port Orchard, Washington, police, Molly, Noah, Tommy, and Leif have seemingly disappeared without a trace.
Sarah is in a state of near catatonia and complete dissociation, completely broken by having everything she ever loved violently ripped away from her. One day, she receives a letter that completely snaps her out of her catatonic state. Molly is now using the name Marcia and is raising Tommy and Leif somewhere in suburbia under that name. With nothing to lose, Sarah convinces her doctors that she has finally recovered.
Now, she must work with Officer Bradley, who is now a detective, to try to find Molly and rescue her sons. Sarah has no information except for the letter, the assumed first names of Molly and her sons, and the name of a middle school that could be anywhere.
Highly recommend. Gives faces and feelings to the history. Believable and includes enough background and history to make more enjoyable. Hate the requirement of a certain minimum number of words in reviews!
Wonderful characters, great story telling, and a look at the true cost of war. . Easy to read. I couldn't put it down.
Really enjoyed this light-hearted presentation of a serious topic - the Exciting Molly Series. The author did not belabor details, just freshly told it as it was. I highly recommend this book!
The book was written very well. The description of the characters and the feelings they portrayed were very pertinent for the period of the world war. The role of women was very influential and was depicted very brilliantly in this novel.
Just the great writing. I was sorry to see the bookend. Missed the 1st two in the series, dang it.
The women pilots would move planes from base to base where needed so the men could be the fighter pilots this is their story of some of the experiences they encountered
This book is very interesting to listen about Molly 3: Book 3 of the Exciting Molly Series
I just finished this book. This is the 3rd book in the series and I started the first one yesterday. Couldn't put them down. I hope there's a 4th one coming soon. I love all of the characters.
Easy to listen, a funny and sexy heroine with a mixture of outrageous villains. Interesting locations and characters, sex scenes, violence and a happy ending.
What did you love best about Molly 3?
Because it is so interesting from series 1
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
Highly recommended and it's so superb listen!
This was a very interesting and exciting story. I would recommend it highly to anyone who enjoys listening to these type of series.
They are interesting stories that sure do not put you to sleep. I highly recommend women & war series to everybody.
This author's Wonderful stories are very well written, exciting and enjoyable to listen. You don't want to put it down. Her stories flow quite well, there is never a dull moment.
Excellent read. The authors delivery of the contents of this book makes you feel that you are there in the series.
I really enjoyed this book.
The story kept me captivated from the start.
Good to listen about the Exciting Molly Series
very enjoyable series about women in World war II... There were some places in this 3rd in the Series of Women and War that it seems she was rushed to finish and skipped to conclusions that would have made some excellent reading.
I enjoyed every word. This story covered several sore points in history and did it very well. War is never nice but is always emotional.
There is a lot going on in this story but not so much that you can't keep up with it. Molly is a very determined young woman who has wanted to fly since she was a child.
hank you to Bellamy Grayfield for a most wonderful story. I enjoyed reading another of your great books and would recommend it highly.
Well written. I read through the night. I am an elderly male but I could identify with the characters notwithstanding ages and genders.
