There’s nothing like word-of-mouth recommendations and The Birthday List just happened to be one of them. Perry was a new author for me and her storytelling literally took my breath away. Since then, she’s become one of my trusted authors who I wouldn’t hesitate to turn to time and time again. I can honestly say that Letters to Molly surpasses any books I’ve read by her to date. Now we’ve been given the opportunity to revisit Bozen, a charming town in Montana where it all began and I can’t put into words how happy meeting up with what felt like long-lost friends made me. Having said that, Letters to Molly can be enjoyed as a stand-alone as the author’s streamlined the past with the present in such a way the reader is never confused.

‘We’d had so much love. How did we get here? How did we get all the way from that letter to us now?’ 

I found it very, but very difficult to walk away from this full-length novel, yet still managed to finish it in less than two days much to my better half’s consternation! Perry brings her characters to life. Her take on them is so unique that I lived their pain, got to learn their strengths, analyze their weaknesses and when they seemed to let bygones be bygones, feelings of sadness set in. However, sometimes regrets cannot be ignored.

‘Until I forgave myself for being human and flawed and impulsive, the past would haunt me.’ 

So, I knew how much Molly was suffering in The Birthday List and ooh boy, was Finn’s ire cuttingly hurtful or what! Now divorced; things are a tad better as they’ve found a status quo of sorts. Both have joint custody of their kids and go out of their way to protect them from any family turmoil which actually, they do damn well. I loved that neither Molly nor Finn had spiteful tongues or put each other down in front of the children. An attitude of courteousness was maintained until letters started appearing in Molly’s mailbox, bringing back painful memories and compelling them to question why they destroyed what they’d had together.

‘It wasn’t just the words or the sudden appearance of his letter that had rocked me. It was reading the words and being thrown backwards in time.’ 

My heart went out to Molly. Guilt is awakened, and although she’s paid dearly for her mistake, I really did think she was getting back on the right track. I thought Finn had forgiven her too, but there’s much more to him than meets the eye. Well-paced, all his feelings come spilling out. But, be that as it may, those rays of hope in touching scenes were whisked away, making me want to give both of them a good talking to.

‘I put up boundaries to keep out the ugly. I embraced the beautiful.’

Communication is the key. Waiting for next letter written years ago to arrive kept me on my toes and all I hoped for was that the content wouldn’t be too harsh. Ooh, my word! Talk about pouring your heart out on paper isn’t in it, either. I really liked how the reader is kept guessing as to who is responsible for Molly receiving the letters that weren’t supposed to be for her eyes. For what purpose were they sent when it’s causing so much heartache? Will they upset the balance of these divorcees’ already delicate relationship, and how does Finn cope while watching his ex-wife try and keep it together, not fall apart?

“I don’t want these letters anymore.”
“I’m sorry.”
 

Letters to Molly is a magnificent second chance romance that must be read. So true-to-life regarding relationship breakdowns, Perry stirred my emotions on every page turned. I smiled and cried from one minute to the next, I rooted for a happy ending. Outside interference was treated intelligently, yep…there’s always someone ready to criticize, isn’t there? Her narrative style continues to dazzle me, her character trait development couldn’t have been more perfectly perfect. The kids and their aunt and uncle, Poppy and Cole; and Randall and Jimmy…two loyal patrons who take great pleasure in patronizing each other where Molly works, had me in fits of laughter, softening this soul-searching novel. Left with a huge grin on my face at the end of a book I didn’t want to say goodbye to, my last word has to be Bravo!

‘The power of fear was terribly magnificent.’

“Kiss me.”

She gave me a slight nod, rising up on her toes.

I dipped, my breath coasting down her cheek, but then I remembered where we were. “Wait. Not here.”

She huffed when I pulled away, taking a few deep breaths as I took her hand and dragged her down the hallway to her bedroom. The second we were away from the stairs—with the door closed and out of danger that one of the kids would walk in on us—I framed her face with my hands and slammed my lips down on hers. I swallowed her gasp and let my hands roam from her face and down her shoulders. I pulled her closer, needing to feel her against me.

Her hands went for my fly, tugging the button on my jeans open to dive inside. The feel of her grip, those long fingers wrapped around my shaft, was so incredible I nearly blacked out.

How was it possible for us to go so wrong? We were good together. So. Fucking. Good.

There are things that women want, and things that women need.
I know deep down, with every fiber in my body, that I need Mr. Ward.

He started out as my landscape designer, but became so much more.
Now, my life is on the line while living with the devil himself. I have been torn down and broken, and I don’t think I can take anymore.

The man I need was never the one I married.
No, the man I need is the one I was never supposed to have. He’s the one who showed me gentleness, kindness, and true love.

Ward would put up a fight for me at any cost.
I know for a fact, I could be so much happier with him…

But when I come face-to-face with reality, I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to risk it all for someone I’ve just met, even if it seems like Mr. Ward and I are a match made in heaven.

The continuation of this very intense story begins with a prologue I’d kind of figured out to a certain degree in The Man I Want. When I turned the page to chapter one in The Man I Need, it starts off where events finished for poor Gabby Moore. Her life has been broken into tiny pieces and she isn’t sure how she’ll possibly carry on. She lives with a devil personified and deep down all she can think about is Mr Ward who could be her saviour, the man that she needs. But it’s complicated because he isn’t her husband. The scenes in the first part are so shocking my heart broke for Gabby and the horrid situation she found herself in. As I read on, I urged her to make a run for it and be strong. The first book was slow burn; this one packs a punch and goes straight for the jugular. My heart beat hard at the thought of what Gabby goes through.

Marcel Ward is like a knight in shining armour and Gabby needs him more than ever. However, it’s a woven web of drama, angst and overwhelming emotions in their plight. There’s a lot of content from domestic violence to adultery and rape. Many will say Gabby was wrong for getting involved with Marcel. I understood where she was coming from. He gave her courage and warmth, not to mention they’d had more formidable chemistry than she’d ever experienced with Kyle. I wanted him to get his comeuppance because he was a nasty control freak and quite frankly, didn’t deserve the love of his beautiful talented wife. Marcel isn’t without his baggage but oh boy, was he a great support network and his actions and words towards Gabby swoon-worthy.

Yet again Ms Williams gives a thrilling story and the Ward Duets’ epic conclusion was eventually how I’d hoped it would be. Did she put me through the wringer before I got to the outcome though! Anybody who hasn’t read this series is fortunate to have the follow up to dive straight into because the first one left me thirsty for more and will never be forgotten. I’ve never been through what Gabby had but to think about how this happens in the real world is harrowing. Bravo Ms Williams on writing something so real and hard-hitting, but also with romance and love.
