Molly Alcott didn't expect to open her mailbox one summer morning and find an old letter stuffed between bills and a supermarket flyer. Penned in familiar handwriting, dated over fifteen years ago, the letter was written to Molly after her first date with the man she'll never forget.
Week after week, new letters appear. Each marks an event in the history of their epic love affair. Each heals a wound. Each holds the confession of the man who still owns Molly's heart.
The letters are full of promise, hope and love, but truth be told, Molly wishes she could unread them all.
Because the man who wrote these letters is not the one sending them.

4.5 DARLING MOLLY STARS! "Some mistakes were unforgivable. Some mistakes came with a regret that lived like a monster in your soul." Devney Perry writes so effortlessly that it's hard to stop and not want to consume every word. This story was so heartbreaking yet healing at the same time. Watching these two souls who once loved each other separate and come together again truly warmed my heart. Six years have passed since their divorce. Molly is at a place in her life where she's content—business at the Maysen Jar is going great, the kids are happy, and her co-parenting relationship with Finn is stable. But, her heart still hasn't healed. Then one night, Finn and Molly's finely combed life changes. Lines are crossed and an affair ensues. While Molly is hesitate, Finn wants more. Wants that second chance. Then the letters arrive. "No matter how many days or months or years went by, Molly was still unforgettable. The best I’d ever had." Each letter represented so much emotion. So much history. So much pain. It forced them to address the issues they had in their marriage. The letters also allowed readers to see that Finn and Molly needed the separation in order to get where they are six years later and fix all the wrongs. Letters to Molly is a second chance romance that will capture your heart. It's beautiful and heartwrenching. It will hit you with so many feels all at once. Hands down, it's a must read!

Letters to Molly by Devney Perry is the second standalone contemporary romance book in her Maysen Jar series. A second chance romance that will both break and mend your heart. The story of Finn and Molly is beautiful and heartbreaking. And such a real life glance at how sometimes life just happens and even two people who are madly in love with each other just can't always make things work. The raw honesty of emotion in this book was touching. I was often indignant at various things the characters said or did knowing how I would have felt if I had been on the receiving end but the sheer effort of trying and trying and just keeping on despite failures was a journey I enjoyed every second of. Even if some of those seconds were sad and a little teary. Devney Perry is a MUST-READ author for me. I loved this! Enjoy! And if you haven't read anything else by her - start now. Don't wait!

Molly and Finn met in college and made a life together. 2 beautiful children later and somewhere along the line they stopped trying. A one night stand, divorce and several years later they are trying to be friends. Mysteriously letters start turning up in Molly's mailbox. They are letters written by Finn after major events in their relationship. They have been hand delivered but Finn was obviously surprised. Will the letters help heal years worth of broken hearts for Finn and Molly? This was another wonderful addition to the Maysen Jar Series. It was sometimes hard to watch Finn and Molly hurting but seeing them learn to communicate was beautiful. I loved the characters and the fact that they carry through from each book. Love this author and her way with words.

3.5 stars As usual, this author’s seamless writing style keeps me glued to every page right up to the heart melting, touchdown HEA, when second chance love can’t be denied and wins the game. Even when I’m really wishing somethings had been scripted differently. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Finn and Molly as they struggled and found their way back to each other. However, it’s really hard for me not to play Tuesday night quarterback here. I simply would have preferred some different plays put into motion and words to have been thrown here. Instead, there was a whole lot of time spent in huddle mode hiding behind hurt feelings and not saying what should have been said in the first place. It took each of these at times painful letters to get these two “never should have parted to begin with lovebirds” to finally start singing a new song and put the past behind them. Here’s what I wish had been different: #1. It would have been epic if Molly had barged in long ago (while all dolled up) and let Finn and that bimbo Bridget have a piece of her mind. She proved herself to be strong, resilient, and carried on even through her stupid mistake and broken heart. My hats off to her for putting her kids first and making sure her broken marriage didn’t taint their relationship with their daddy. She should have stormed in and told him, “You want a divorce? You got it, buddy! Here’s what you’ll be missing!” then strutted out the door with her head held high. I struggle with accepting a heroine who slinks away defeated. #2. Friends and family not pointing out from the get go marital priorities were amiss here. It was pretty obvious second fiddle syndrome was a big cause for the split. This posse of people were obviously always in each other’s business, so they could have at least tried to intervene. Nope, they stayed silent most of the time, as well. #3. Molly’s blink of an eye, drunken infidelity while still technically married and hoping to reconcile. That just felt wrong on so many levels, I’m not even going there, folks. I had to shrug it off and accept it for what it was, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. I honestly think that twist could have been left out. Seeing or hearing about her flirting with the guy could have been the catalyst. I’m struggling with how to rate this second chance, stand-alone but part of a series romantic tale. 5 stars for how smoothly the writing flowed, 2 stars for knucklehead thinking/behavior, 3 stars for lack of commitment from both of them until nearly the end, 5 stars for ultimately forgiving and both parties accepting responsibility for losing six years of their marriage. Maybe it’s best if I let you draw your own conclusion altogether. Here’s to hoping my review will help you do just that. (These comments are based on a library edition. This is not an ARC review.)

I am so glad Devney wrote Molly’s story! Loved Molly and Finn! I really loved their dynamic with the kids and always putting them first. A divorced couple who fight their way back to each other will have you rooting for their story! Can they have overcome all the obstacles in their path? Their story is truly heartwarming! 5 stars

My oh my... I waited for the Molly and Finn story to come out after reading the first in the Maysen Jar series...the Birthday List...and being introduced to their characters. The story did not disappoint!! It has all the feels. “Watch out, Molly Todd. I might just have to marry you.” “Please say yes “ “You’re the most amazing woman I ever met” “You’re the center of my world “ “I love her. Always have. Always will.” “You’ve been dating for years.” “Yes, I have. And not once have I taken another woman to bed.” Molly made a mistake...5 second sex with another man. In Finn’s eyes...it was the unforgivable sin. Then the letters showed up and his true, raw and unedited, feelings were there for Molly to see. Reality became a palm plant ... right to the face. Finn put his love for Alcott (his landscaping business) above his love for Molly and his family. He realizes this...6 years too late. Finn needed to forgive Molly. Molly needed to forgive Finn. Before that could happen...they needed to forgive themselves. They needed to learn to love themselves as much as they loved each other. Finn came to this realization and became determined to win her back...set out to own up to his own mistakes and prove his love to Molly. “We’ve been down this path. Too many times. We agreed it was better this way, so...there.” “I changed my mind, he declared. I’ll change yours too.” You will laugh, you will cry, you will be angry, you will rejoice...no emotion goes untouched in this epic conclusion to the Maysen Jar series!! One of my best reads of 2019! A superb read! Well done Devney Perry...well done!!

Letters to Molly is a beautifully written story. I'm so glad the author decided to let Molly share her story with the world. It's a perfect example of how important communication is, especially in relationships.

Totally raw! I felt like I was holding my breath the whole book and I didn't' exhale until I knew how this was going to go. It tore me apart and put me back together in one of the best ways possible. Totally relatable, totally romantic, and this book had heartbreak and enough love to make you feel like you are being hugged. As with The Birthday List, the book takes you on emotionally and gives you not only a fantastic story that leaves its talons with you long after you have finished, but it also leaves you with life lessons that will no doubt leave an impression for years to come.

I was beyond excited when Devney Perry announced she was writing Molly and Finn’s story. When The Birthday List ended, I knew in my heart, Molly and Finn weren’t done. Letters to Molly is so much more than a second chance romance. It is a story about healing the wounds of the past, of anger, hurt and betrayal, and most of all, love. Finn and Molly have been divorced for six years. They’ve learned how to co-parent, live separate lives, and to be amicable. And then Finn’s letters start showing up. Using Finn’s letters as the catalyst for healing their relationship was brilliant. There were so many times I wanted to shake Finn and then he’d reveal his heart and his fears and hurt and I knew this very flawed many was very human and amazing. And Molly, well I knew when I met her in The Birthday List I was going to love her. Visiting with Poppy and Cole was an added bonus! Devney Perry never disappoints, this book is no exception. I read it over two days, only stopping to eat and sleep. And when it was done, of course, I wanted more!

I was looking forward to this story since I read and loved The Birthday List. I couldn't wait to learn more about Finn and Molly. This story exceeded all my expectations for a great second chance love story. I loved both the characters as well as re-visiting with Cole and Poppy. The story was so well written and had great twists that were unexpected. Devney never disappoints. Absolutely one of my top reads of 2019. I have recommended this to all of my book groups.

Letters to Molly by Devney Perry is one of the best books I read this year. This is the second book in the Maysen Jar Series it can be read as a standalone but I would suggest reading The Birthday List first. I absolutely LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! Everyone should read this book. I picked up this book telling my husband I am just going to read one chapter, well as you can guess I kept turning the pages and couldn’t put it down. He never saw me again until I had read the last page. After reading The Birthday List I could not wait for Molly and Fin’s story and Letters to Molly did not disappoint. This book has so much emotion you felt everything the characters were feeling. This book has made me laugh it has made me cry but it was so worth the tears. I also ended up with a huge smile on my face. This was a lovely, heartwarming and emotional story. This is a perfect second chance love story. This is not a book to be missed.

Molly and Finn's story isn't the first one wherein the couple was previously married, but the author's take on the whole "divorce romance" trope was fresh and bold. Devney Perry had no qualms putting before her readers the good, the bad, and the ugly of Molly and Finn's history as a couple, and I more than appreciated that because two people who go their separate ways is, more often than not, heartbreaking and Perry's honest take on it reflected that. We get glimpses of how much they loved each other, but no more than necessary, another direction that Perry decided on that I found refreshingly creative. We don't need the whole falling in love part rehashed too deeply nor is it something that's needed after the divorce because the love is subtly revealed to still be very much there. What's highlighted on is the story of forgiveness and reflection, both of self and the other person. My heart broke for these two and the revelation of how it all ties in with the heartrending tale that unfolds in The Birthday List stole my breath and had me reaching for tissues. I never had a doubt that Devney Perry could write a hauntingly beautiful love story, yet she still took me by surprise with the heartfelt honest found on the pages of Letters to Molly, which I'm giving five-plus stars to, even though that doesn't seem enough. While you can read this as a standalone, I seriously encourage you to first peruse The Birthday List, which is the story of Finn's sister, Poppy. ♥

I have been waiting for this book before Devney Perry even decided she would write LTM. Ever since TBL and the brief backstory we got on Molly and Finn I needed to have their story. Just like I needed my next breath I needed to know everything on the demise of their marriage especially when there was still so much love there. I honestly didn’t know how Devney would weave the complicated, heartbreaking story story of a once so in love couple to now divorced and co-parenting relationship. After 6 years it’s working but Molly hasn’t given dating or any relationship a thought and Finn has been the opposite. Being a wife and married for some time now I felt for both Molly and Finn. I’m surprised I wasn’t so judgmental towards either one. What I really loved about LTM is that these characters were level headed...their reactions were natural and they owned up the their less than stellar behaviors. Those letters are the start of Molly and Finn’s road to everything. I don’t want to say much but this book is more than a failed marriage, more than co-parenting, more than a love story. It’s everything from forgiving, communicating, acceptance, new beginnings, setting boundaries, realities, dreams changing and moving forward. I will say that those letters were pure honesty. I loved that they weren’t over the top but they were straight to the point. The message was loud and clear and certainly helped to see how Finn was feeling while getting to see Molly’s reaction. I think these words from part of one the letters were the most powerful ones for me that gutted me the most.... “I’m ashamed of you. I’m ashamed of myself.” “You quit me.” “And I quit you.” After reading that I had so much more respect for these characters because it’s so easy to put blame on others but admitting hard truths is difficult to do. I’m so glad I read this book and even more grateful that Devney decided to write a book on a divorced couple. It’s real and raw and so relatable that you’ll be looking at your relationship and connecting to Molly and Finn on some level.

As with many of Devney Perry’s books, Molly and Finn’s story had me experiencing a full range of emotions. To be completely honest, I was really really apprehensive about this book. I remember reading the Birthday List and just with the snippets we got of Molly and Finn’s history, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to handle it. But I have read every single one of Devney’s books from the very beginning and she has never steered me wrong, and in Letters to Molly it still holds true. It has been six years since Molly and Finn’s divorce and they have reached the point of an amicable co-parenting relationship. On the surface they are both seen to have moved on, but with the appearance of these letters, we see their true existence. I really do not want to give too much away, but after each letter is read, old emotions of love and hurt are re-opened and causes a ripple effect to their relationship. Letters to Molly is not just a love story, it is also about forgiveness, not just forgiving the other person but to really look into themselves and forgiving yourself. All throughout this book, you experience the love, the pain, the regret and the ultimate prize of healing. This was such a beautifully written book! On a personal note, can I just say I really needed this book. I work in the Family Law Department (I work in the courtroom) and I just recently had to sit through another 2-hour trial where another long term marriage had been terminated and they were arguing about spousal support so we got the whole history of their marriage. Hearing these type of cases day in and day out, it starts to take a toll, so as tough as this story was, it also helped my heart a little. I absolutely adored every bit of this book and highly recommend it.

***4.5 STARS*** Molly and Finn Alcott. Finn and Molly Alcott. No matter which way you twist it these two will have you in knots as unsettled emotions are exposed. After being divorced for six years, Molly is finally in a space where she is content. She's upgraded Beluga—her trusty minivan—the business she manages is thriving, her kids are happy, and her and Finn have entered into a well-oiled co-parenting zone. Finn is not the angry person he was in The Birthday List, the first standalone in the Maysen Jar series. Towards the middle of said novel, Devney Perry allows readers to witness Finn's transformation which is related to his treatment of Molly. However, Finn breaks readers' hearts when instead of telling Molly he wants to get back together—he reveals he wants to start dating. Six years later, Finn's dating life hasn't gone as planned. One night the careful life Finn and Molly have been living is no longer intact. Lines get crossed and an affair ensues. Molly is skeptical and resistent to attempt a relationship that previously crashed and burned while Finn is steadfast in his pursuit and optimistic at the prospect of a second chance. The letters start arriving. Each one possessing the ability to either fill you with the giddiness of first love or strip you bare with the rawness of emotion harbored in the words! These letters not only force Molly and Finn to address the downfall of their marriage but they give readers insight into the maritial issues that causes Finn and Molly to drift apart. A second chance romance, Letters to Molly is a love story that is just as beautiful and heartfelt as it is ugly and heartbreaking.

where do I begin? Letters to Molly was just an amazing book. I read so much that I love when books take you out of the typical romance scene and give you a book that is so different that it will stay with you for a very long time. Devney Perry has hit it out of the park with 2nd in the Maysen Jar series. I typically don't run towards second chance romances because they are usually so predictable and mostly the same. This is the polar opposite with Letters to Molly. Molly and Finn are divorced and coexisting because of their kids. I won't spoil it for you but they have an very broken road to come back to each other. They both have issues and no one is innocent in what happened to cause their divorce but they both fight to get back to each other. Lots of twists and turns and some shocking craziness happens that will literally have your jaw on the floor and needing tissues . Please Please pick this gem up and get ready for a wild ride. It is just one of my favorites of the year. Such a great read and would love to see this series made into movies its that good

I read and LOVED The Birthday List but I wanted Molly to have her HEA! I was thrilled when I heard Letters To Molly was coming. This story was PERFECT. It has angst y’all! But Devney Perry is great at ripping your heart to pieces and then putting it back together better than before. This is Devney Perry’s best work yet! The feelings she pulls from the readers and the healing that follows is beautiful!

In all honesty, Letters to Molly was only an anticipated read because it was written by Devney Perry. I came out of The Birthday List, not needing more from side characters (which is pretty rare if you know me. I’m all about the side characters!). I was devastated by what had occurred in The Birthday List between Molly and Finn. I honestly didn’t know if I could move on, which is why I wasn’t absolutely DYING for Letters to Molly. But with every turn of the page, I was drawn in more and more. The words wouldn't let me go. The story consumed me. I had to know what was happening. I had to know when the next letter would show up. I had to know what the letters said. In the end, I loved it. It’s not my favorite Devney book but I loved it. Devney takes this divorced couple and gives them a second chance at love. It’s emotional and beautiful and the true definition of a page turner. Buckle up, because you’re in for one hell of an emotional roller coaster ride!

Wow. I don’t even know where to begin. We all met Molly & Finn in TBL, there was so much tension behind the scenes I was itching to know their story. So now I’m all like... FINALLY! Molly & Finn were married, happy as clams. They started their landscaping business after college and then began a family. At some point they started growing apart, communication so lacking it was frustrating! I wanted to shake them! By the time it was too late, they both tried to move on. Or move forward, because there was no moving on from a love like theirs. Molly went to work at The Maysen Jar and Finn hustled his landscaping. Both living for their kids. When the sparks reignited (many moons later) I was so excited! I should’ve known Devney wouldn’t let it happen so easily though. Ha! Once the letters started rolling in, I started praying “please work this out! They have to work this out, Lord!” I just seriously love them so much. They’ll make you believe in forgiveness and the need for it to be able to live happily ever after.
