I, like many others, fell in love with this author during a little book called Taking Chances. Ugly cry anyone?! I actually vividly remember when I read it, because I read Taking Chances and From Ashes back to back, right after Christmas in 2012. Talk about the mother of ALL book hangovers! Holy cow, can this woman every write! There is no possibly connecting with the characters friends, it is a guarantee. So much so that I compare the level of heartbreak in her books to all others. Yes, she has become a verb. As in that book just Molly McAdam’d me. They are THAT powerful.

I am a self-professed angst lover and she satisfies my every need in her books.I find comfort in the fact that any time I feel the need to feed the angst monster I need look no further than one of her books. Not only that, but she is one of the friendliest people you will EVER meet, be it in person or just talking via the internet. She’s a reader’s author and never takes that for granted. As down to earth as the day she published her first book, she truly makes you believe that all things are possible. Goofy and eternally positive, she is one of a kind! If you haven’t already, check out her books. I’ll give you ALL the details below. Not only that, but 4 of them are on SALE! Grab them now!

About Molly McAdams

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughters. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm … or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.

So, what did you think? :-)
