I came to Lisette Brodey's "Molly Hacker Is Too Picky" as a sort of stranger in a strange land. After all, I am a man and I feared that the chick-lit-iness of the tome would be beyond me.

I need not have worried. Molly Hacker is a heroine that speaks across genders, laying bare the foibles, the fancies and the philosophy of the human condition when it comes to love.

Molly is an endearing character, full of contradiction. She is smart, sassy and sexy but she's also vulnerable, self reflective, searching for love - even though she might deny it.

Lisette's writing style is immediately accessible. It is smart, cracking and paints a picture vividly. Her characters are well drawn and appealing and none are wasted in a taut and attractive story.

I thoroughly enjoyed Molly's trials and tribulations and I have to admit, I'm now hooked on chick-lit.

Molly Hacker Is Too Picky is a feel good must read.

As so many of Lisette Brodey's fans, I "met" Molly Hacker on her blog and was very curious to "connect" with her again in the novel. She is quite a character, witty, spunky, and a good sport. However, when it comes to finding Mr. Right, she has to overcome quite a few obstacles: her own somewhat confused ideas and feelings about love, her well-meaning but somewhat pushy friends, an important woman (the she-devil) in the media industry who is out to sabotage her.

To say that the book is entertaining is an understatement. It is a real page-turner, devilishly funny, engaging, and sensitive. It deals in an insightful way with problems of love, friendships, and relationships we all struggle with sometimes. And it gives us a fascinating, tongue-in-cheek picture of the world of journalism and the media.

Molly for all her blunders is someone you just have to like. All the characters are well-developed, vivid, and genuine. I particularly enjoyed the exchange between Molly and her best buddy, Randy. What a riot!

Another successful story by a very talented author!

I've been enthralled with Lisette Brodey's books since I picked up "Crooked Moon" and was blown away by the brilliance of her style, unique characters and the emotion she engendered in the reader--me. Molly Hacker Is Too Picky demonstrates how a single woman on her journey to find love, can also experience lots of laughter, tears and life-long friendships along the way.

The repartee between her and office pal Randy,is fodder for some of the best humor between friends that has ever been written. Author Brodey excels at both character development and realistic but entertaining dialogue that makes her characters come alive before your eyes. They are unveiled in such a way that the reader gets to know them with their foibles and their tender qualities.These are people that one might love to have as friends for a lifetime.

And on her journey to find love, Molly finds herself, appreciates her strengths and realizes she may not be too picky after all.In fact, she deserves to have the best people surround her as each nurtures the other along the way.

If you haven't read Molly hacker Is Too Picky! you are missing a wonderful experience!

Looking for a lighthearted and fun read? This is it. The characters in this witty and fast-paced tale are delightfully flawed and quirky; and the heroine, Molly Hacker, is a riot. She is also surprisingly insightful. Molly navigates through problems and issues we all face at one point or another - love (and the lack thereof), friendships, and insecurities. As Molly stumbles along the path in her madcap, 12-month quest to find Mr. Right, twists and upsets and laughter abound. Treat yourself to this cleverly told story.

I loved, loved, loved this book! It's hilarious with great, quirky characters. A well developed story with a surprising twist at the end. The author's knowledge of people is evident and it's very easy to feel that you are there with Molly as her story unfolds.

Is "Molly Hacker Too Picky"? She is often told that she is so she decides to do something about it and her life gets very complicated after she goes from having no man in her life to having several.

From the beginning to the end you will be delighted with this wonderful book about friendships and relationships.

Very sharp and witty commentary of a single woman who won't settle for `Mr Anybody' ... and believes that, despite her cynical outlook on dating and romance, she deserves `Mr Right'. She'll fiercely fend off any attempts by others to make her settle.

Molly Hacker is not for compromising!

As a reporter for The Swansea Herald, Molly turns down the opportunity to be a press-pass-carrying socialite...in favour of doing the obituary column. She spurns the attempts of the manipulative Naomi (an awful, self-righteous, social-ladder-climbing, deadly-nightshade of a woman)... to be set up on a blind date with some man that Naomi is determined to match-make.

Yet, notwithstanding the machinations of the dreadful Naomi, as the story progresses Molly goes from zero partner-prospects to too many to handle. And still, despite her overwhelming choice of suitors, Molly remains determinedly picky, and wanders even into neurotic.

On the surface, Molly is a tough, feisty, no-nonsense woman, who is juggling several potential relationships in a skilful but considerate fashion. As each of her suitors is so very different from one another, and offers her different prospects, she appears to be making the best of each in a caring and pragmatic way. But beneath her cool exterior, she is pestered by memories of her lost `true love', and her own insecurities. This provides a wonderful contrast within her personality which makes you all the more curious ... what exactly will it take to make Molly happy?

I particularly enjoyed the snipey attitude illustrated in dialogue, the lovely comedic expressions - many of which are made as though she is talking-to-camera, like an aside to the narrative run - and the clever use of metaphor.
