It’s Release Day!!!

Hey there everyone!

Today, is a big day for Hilary, she is releasing Plan Cee into the world and having some fun while doing it.

Plan Cee –

Would you abandon your present for a second chance at your past?

Cecelia Reynolds has spent most of her life trying to forget the commitment-phobic man who broke her heart. It wasn’t easy, but eventually she did it, or so she thought…

As Cecelia and her husband gather for a friend’s wedding, her perfect world is thrown into complete turmoil. Even though it’s been twenty years since she last laid eyes on Keith Emerson, all it takes is one glance for her to feel emotions she thought were long gone. When Keith ends up officiating the ceremony, she quickly realizes his message of love is directed at her, not the happy couple. But can she believe him?

We live our entire lives thinking we know ourselves. But do we ever really?

As secrets and lies cause Cecelia’s world to spin completely out of control, she is forced to seek advice from the most unlikely ally. In the process, she must confront the demons of her past and the events that shaped her into the woman she is now. Will she finally learn the real meaning of love, friendship, and family?

While this book is a sequel to Plan Bea, it also reads as a standalone.

In addition to all that fun stuff, Hilary is also giving away a copy of Plan Bea for free and threw in a raffle too!

Plan Bea –
We live our entire lives thinking we know those closest to us. But do we ever really?

On the outside, Annabel O’Conner has it all – the perfect husband, two adorable children, an amazing job, and a mother from hell! Just when she gives up trying to regain her overbearing mother’s love, an unexpected call turns her world around and makes Annabel question everything she believes about her life. 

Could falling in love give a cold, stubborn, and selfish woman a second chance to open her heart back up to her family?

Beatrice Buchanan has spent more years than she can remember distancing herself from everyone close to her. She barely has a relationship with her grandchildren. The only time she manages to have a one way conversation with her daughter is during her weekly fifteen-minute commute to the nail salon. When Bea meets Walter on a cruise she realizes there may be more to life than designer clothes, killer handbags, and impressing the ladies at her posh country club. 

As the mother and daughter duo team up to plan “Long Island’s wedding of the year” they confront the secrets and lies that have defined them. This humorous emotionally honest women’s contemporary fiction novel will tug at your heartstrings and the twist ending will shock you.

And finally, my review!

Its an aspiring tale of friendships, love, marriage and second chances all around. I couldn’t put this book down after chapter 20!  I killed an afternoon finishing it because I had to know how it would end.

The premise centers around Cecelia, her family, friends and marriage to Bryce. In a twisted tale of fate, she is reunited with the one that broke her heart but she never stopped loving, Keith.

Hilary captures the hurdles of friendships, discovery of ones true worth and self respect. The idealist dream that the grass is not always greener on the other side because we are blinded by the fact that we are already on the greener side.

Cee is the kind of woman I want to be friends with because she is independent, strong willed, married to a man who adores her and has an amazing family she adores in return. The trick is when she is faced with a lost love from the past as well as some serious fears of abandonment. She has to learn some hard, painful truths before she can move forward and continue to carry on even stronger than she was before. She must learn the true meaning of friendship and forgiveness. I loved how she learned who her real love was as well as her real friends, those that stuck around to fight with and for her and those that simply used her to their advantage.

The end of the book left me smiling because Hilary captures the sweet gesture of what it means to love someone and what you would do to keep that love alive.
