Molly's Millions book. Victoria Connelly writes with a lot of warmth and humour, making this a lovely, inspiring story with characters that the reader can really identify with and care about. It would be impossible not to like Molly Bailey, as she's such a generous, kind-hearted person. She truly doesn't seem to realise how unusual it is for someone to behave so selflessly and can't understand why her actions are making her a media phenomenon. I also liked Tom, despite the trouble he was causing for Molly, and I loved Flora, his daughter.

Pages are yelllowing. Spine is creased although remains intact.

So much fun!!! Got caught up in it the moment I met Molly! A merry dance and chase around England that was as good and heartwarming as the best fairy tales!! Great writing, editing and pacing kept you caught up in Molly's adventure! Hated to get to the end!!

This was a great read and so different from the normal story lines. I wanted to know what Molly was going to do next at all times because you did not know which way it was going to go! It was a lot of fun!

Very unbelievable premise, but silly brain candy is okay sometimes. Mindless,easy read.
Nitpicky, but the cover color and the storyline don't agree.

What would you do if you won the lottery? Perhaps you would reward yourself with a new house and car, splurge on items that were considered out of your financial reach and travel to practically anywhere in the world. The opportunities are indeed endless when a large sum of money is worked into the equation. This is essentially the dilemma faced by Molly Bailey a struggling florist in rural England. Having taken a chance with luck, she has won the lottery and is now in a situation where she can do anything that she wants. So what does the Molly do? She gives the money away to random strangers!

Molly's Millions is a light read that moves quite quickly. The reader is exposed to England in a way that the English would be proud of; green rolling hills and tight knit communities in the country side, sprawling metropolis city landscape. Readers will enjoy meeting the characters and getting a bird's eye view on English values whether they are traditional or contemporary.

Though the moral of the story is quite unconventional in this day and age, it does raise the theme of charity (albeit the ones that begin at home), kindness and goodwill. At times you could tell that the author tried to strike a balance between these themes and those of greed but she was always careful to swing the proverbial pendulum to the good side, so much so that once a character behaved greedy or self seeking, the reader would definitely disapprove.

A book that is so `light' in nature would have a few things that simply fell through the cracks; sub stories that were developed up to a point and then left the reader hanging. However all of that is forgiven when the reader examines how nicely the book flowed. Everything seemed in its rightful place; even the humor which will from time to time surprise the readers.

Molly's Millions is a nice, light choice and would be an excellent book to keep close by so that whenever you are on a long commute or if you simply feel like reading, you have Molly's Millions to keep you company.

Florist Molly Bailey has just discovered she's won 4.2 million pounds on the lottery. But since her grandfather, father and brother's attitude to money would make Scrooge look generous, Molly realises she can't let them get their hands on her winnings. Instead she decides to give most of it away to people in need. So she takes off on a journey across Britain, leaving behind bundles of 50 pound notes and yellow gerberas. Meanwhile small-time reporter Tom Mackenzie realises he may be on to the story of a lifetime, and with his young daughter Flora, takes off after the mysterious benefactor. When he realises Molly is his woman (far too quickly in my mind), the story soon puts Tom and Molly on the front pages and sets the grumpy Bailey boys on to her trail too. Perfect for days when you need a feel-good story that won't tax the brain cells.

Perfect outside afternoon read on a 30+ sunny day, Molly's Millions proved another fantastic Victoria Connelly choice.. No disappointment with the easy breezy style of Victoria Connelly !
She has an inviting voice that is nothing but enjoyable...
Fun story lines. Delightful characters one can easily relate to.
A most pleasurable afternoon with Molly's Millions & my iced fruit tea out on the balcony in the sun!
Good story about being a good person, but was predictable and a bit too much happy ending for it to be realistic at all
