Local author announces release of new 5-star rated novel, "Mollie's Follies." Herein, young, beautiful Mary Lynn Sharp, aka Mollie, is on the run prior to reviving from a two-week coma. Her first thought is of the last conversation she overheard, where paramedics are discussing which hospital is best equipped to treat her injuries, Branson or Springfield. Mollie's Follies is a fast-paced, swift-changing, exploding-scenes read-a-thon. https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US/bookshelf https://www.amazon.com/author/bonnie.mill-lemke
