MOLLY & CRUZ is a collection of two novellas and one full-length novel starring academy-award winning actress, Molly Harper, and her on-again, off-again true love, literature professor Cruz Morales.

This women's fiction saga explores not only the two decade long love affair between Molly and Cruz, but also Molly Harper's compelling personal story. Living in the public eye, in these three stories Molly Harper will navigate marriage, divorce, scandal and heartbreak as well as the revelation of the secret which intersects the lives of two other women, Norma Wintz, Molly's mother and her greatest ally, and Anne Sullivan, a newcomer to Molly’s life.

Each of these women are plunged into turmoil when the most intimate of ties between the three is uncovered. How they each handle the resulting upheaval in their own life, and in their relationships with one another, forms the compelling story of family, secrets and trust in the collection, Molly & Cruz.

5 Stars! "Molly Harper" is no flighty cotton-candy novel. It's intense, tumultuous, and contemplative. It forces the reader to delve into the depths of their heart and examine the actions of their past. The characters and plot lines are vibrant, full, and believable--and not just the main ones....It's absolutely superb and creates the unique ebbs and flows of the adventurous tide her novel rides upon. It's quite remarkable. It's so good you don't notice it. And that's the point." Sofia St. Angeles   InD'tale Magazine March 2015            

"MOLLY HARPER the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be my last! Ms. Gamble does a wonderful job of drawing these characters and making them just leap off the page."  Long and Short Reviews

"I rarely gush over a book these days. I read at least one, sometimes two books a day and so I can be hard to move. But, this one really got to me... you do not want to miss... Molly Harper."  Clue Review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful collection! The Molly & Cruz Collection is 3 books telling about the lives of Molly Harper and Cruz Morales. Their lives are very different but that doesn’t stop them from falling in love. These books not only tell of their rocky road together but also of Molly’s life as a movie star. Duets is a story of two women whose lives are very different but linked in an odd way that they don't even realize. Molly Harper is a beautiful, successful actress who is loved by everyone including her family, fiancé, Ben, and her lifelong friend, Cruz. Ben is a handsome actor, who isn't very likable and is very self-centered. He doesn't seem like a very good match for Molly. Molly's friend, Cruz, is the son of an employee of her well-off family. They have had a romantic relationship in the past but Cruz was uncomfortable with Molly's dream of being a star and the lack of privacy that came with it so they broke up but remained friends all their lives. Just before her wedding, Molly is wondering if she has made the right decision about marrying Ben or should she be with Cruz? Anne Sullivan is a homemaker who lives on the other side of the country. She is trying to handle her husband's illness of cancer and is afraid of losing him. Molly and Anne get to know each other when Anne gets a letter from someone from her past which gives her instructions to follow. This leads her to Molly. Molly Harper is about the secrets of three women, how the secrets unfold, and the consequences of the secrets. The first woman with a secret is a strong and considerate person, Anne Sullivan. She is trying to start a new life after losing her husband. Then there is Molly Harper who is a famous movie star. Her personal life is falling apart and secrets from her past are making everything worse for her. The third woman is Norma Wintz who has kept a secret for 35 years but finally sees that the secret has to be told. December Wedding is a wonderful conclusion to Molly and Cruz’s story. Molly is evading paparazzi but trying to promote her new movie. It’s hard to promote her movie when the media only wants to know about her private life – not her work. And keeping her biological family out of the limelight was getting harder all the time. Especially with a sneaky journalist trying to dig up anything she can about Molly’s personal life. To top it off, she is in the late stages of pregnancy, so she is not feeling her best. Cruz keeps asking her to marry him but she constantly refuses because she knows how much he hates her movie star lifestyle with the media constantly in their faces. Emelle Gamble is an amazing writer with a gift of being able to pull you into the story. I am so glad that I received this novel as a gift from the author. As a whole, this collection was a happy, enjoyable read that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
