Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's tense and smart-alecky. It's likeable without being sweet. It's sexy and tough, and as apt to kick you in the pants as to kiss you on the cheek."
- Author Leo McKay Jr.

"I absolutely adored Molly Miranda... Hamilton handles the story with a deft touch, balancing action, laugh-out-loud zingers and romance with zippy pacing and a character you can really root for. This series makes me want to quit my day job and become a cat burglar with a condo on Central Park West and a passport full of cool stamps. I seriously can't wait for the next one."
- Author Kat Ross

"Molly Miranda is a fun read with some good messages of self awareness and identity laced through the humour and suspense."
- Author Natalie Corbett Sampson

"I enjoy a bad ass female character.  I'm tired of girls in books getting saved by guys.  Molly Miranda can take care of herself but that's just one reason I like the book."
- Book Drunkard

I actually read this book last year. Somehow it was in my 'unread' reading list. So when I started reading it this time, I just kept going. I must say, it was quite good the second time around! Even though I knew the outcome, I hung in there and finished it. It was that good! I wished I could find more books by Jillianne Hamilton.

I'll start this review by stating the obvious: with first person stories, you'd better like the narrator, because you're going to be living in their head for many hours and hundreds of pages. I've put down books (not often, but it's happened) where everything else is awesome—plot, pacing, setting (zombiepocalypse!)—but the MC is so annoying and self-absorbed it is literally unreadable.
Thankfully, this is not that kind of book.
I absolutely adored Molly Miranda.
While different in plenty of ways, Molly reminds me a little of Charlaine Harris's wonderful Sookie Stackhouse: down to earth, self-deprecating, capable and independent, deliciously snarky but never nasty. While some aspects of her life are wild, others are perfectly mundane, and Jillianne Hamilton doesn't shy away from letting us in on the joke (ever had to pee while fooling around with a crush?).
Which brings us to the romance. We have the obligatory two boys (good and naughty), and naturally the naughty one has more personality, but it’s a minor flaw. Hamilton writes the scenes with both love interests with a winning combination of genuine chemistry and real-life awkwardness that will appeal to fans of romance, chick-lit and mystery/thrillers.
The secondary characters are also strongly written. Hamilton has a sharp ear for dialogue, especially the easy banter between Molly and her best friend, Ruby. They're opposites in many ways, but she takes the time to show you why they click.
And oh Audrey, how I love thee! When she talks, I picture the perfectly posh and utterly hilarious woman in the PooPourri commerical…
Hamilton handles the story with a deft touch, balancing action, laugh-out-loud zingers and romance with zippy pacing and a character you can really root for. This series makes me want to quit my day job and become a cat burglar with a condo on Central Park West and a passport full of cool stamps. I seriously can't wait for the next one.

How much fun is this? I'm loving the debut from Hamilton--now I need more about her sassy, sometimes awkward and always brave heroine, Molly Miranda. Stealing other people's stuff has never been so charming. Bravo!

Such a fun book to read. The author tells a great story without having to draw it out with long winded conversations or chapters upon chapters explaining a characters background. It moves steadily, easily, fast. The only problem with it being fast, and awesomely entertaining, is that it's over way too soon. :( I so look forward to the next one!

It started a little slow but then once all the characters got in place, it really took off & got very interesting with a lot of twists. The difference between the two main characters provided a lot of laughs which I really loved!

The character Molly Miranda is delightful and this book is an absolutely captivating read. Jillianne is careful in her craft in order to make Molly both realistic and charming, while still allowing her to have her own unique personality with some awkward, insecure, and silly moments. Her inquisitive, wandering thoughts during critical events in the novel are often hilarious, and probably seem very familiar to most readers. While she has an extremely relatable personality, Molly proves to become an endearing and evidently special person through the novel, rather than a simply ordinary one.

This book is very fast-paced and clever, which makes it hard to put down. Every chapter ends in a sentence that urges you to race to the following page. I've never actively chosen to read a crime fiction before, but it is obvious that Jillianne has put a substantial amount of research into the story and I appreciate her apparent attention to detail. Jillianne also has a way with language in which I find she doesn't drag on with excessive descriptions, but still manages to create lovely imagery that makes accounts seem just right in the mind of readers. I ended up dog-earing all the pages where a certain sentence or description struck me in an attractive way and by the end of the novel nearly half the pages were folded over!

This is definitely a enjoyable read, whether you care for pleasant imagery, accurate details, or just a tough individual who's not about to change for anyone. I would recommend this book to those who appreciate a novel featuring a strong, independent female lead, as well as a story with action, romance, humor, and lots of surprises. I cannot wait for the continuation, as I know there is more to Molly's story than the bit that us readers have been hooked to so far!

It's difficult to believe that Molly Miranda: Thief for Hire is Jilliane Hamilton's first novel. The book is just so skillfully crafted and cleverly written, and manages to do so many things so entertainingly well.

Molly Miranda: Thief for Hire is not the sort of book I normally read. I'm all about the dark, brooding, soul-searching 'literary' novel. Hamilton herself calls her novel "action/comedy." This book is breezy and light in tone (though there are moments of great suspense, and the events encompass a wide range of emotions), and best of all: it is funny. The narrator has a snappy sarcasm that never seems strained and is used by Hamilton in just the right way to express Miranda's annoyance without ever becoming annoying.

Several things I admire in this book:

The pacing. Each chapter feels so self-contained, yet manages to end with great forward momentum. I always wanted to know what would happen next.

The brief and deft descriptions. From visual depictions of a new scenes, to the physical texture of boring office work, Hamilton really knows how to provide life-giving detail in just the right amount.

The number of interestingly drawn characters. For a short book (222 pages), Molly Miranda: Thief for Hire is chock-a-block with fun-to-meet people. The book actually has the feel of the old Rockford Files TV show. It's tense and smart-alecky. It's likeable without being sweet. It's sexy and tough, and as apt to kick you in the pants as to kiss you on the cheek.

An exciting first book. I look forward to more from Jillianne Hamilton.
