Blurb for 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.
“Would you abandon your present for a second chance at your past?”
Plan Cee is the latest book in the “Secrets, Lies & Second Chance Series”. At this point in the series, Author Hilary Grossman’s books are now Must-Reads for me and many other fans.
Plan Cee lets us dip into the lives of some familiar faces that we have met in the earlier books, but Plan Cee can be read as a stand-alone. Cecelia Reynolds “Cee” is the star of this book. When we meet her, she is at a wedding. At the start of the wedding ceremony, she is a regular gal- with a career, kind and supportive husband and rambunctious young twins. At the end of the festivities, her life has been shaken from the moorings of all she knows. The age-old problem- the exciting love from the past or the steady, solid husband and family of the “now” confronts Cee.
Once again, we meet a full cast of well-developed and interesting characters. In Author Grossman’s hands, these characters are vivid and fun to read about. Each one of them deals with past and present secrets, hurts and betrayals. Ms. Grossman is a master at studying and showing us the dangers and far-reaching effects of big and small lies.
“You will never be able to enjoy the present if you don’t resolve your past.”
“Life is short. Don’t settle. Don’t let fear cripple you.”
“We only have one life. Time passes if you are happy or miserable.”
I especially like that Plan Cee features millennial-aged characters, and some older, mature ones. The interplay of the generations, with their different perspectives, attitudes and ways of facing life adds to the richness of the story. This would be a great book club read as there is much to discuss! Not that this is a slow or intellectual read. The plot is fast-paced and the dialogue is spot-on. The beach scenes and life In New York and Long Island are beautifully described.
Most of the characters in Plan Cee have advice for Cee. As you read this book you may be shouting at her too, telling Cee what to do. My advice to Cee is to “Stop listening to your friends. Listen to yourself!” My advice to everyone else is put Plan Cee on the top of your list and read this 5 Star book as soon as you can! Jena C. Henry, February 21, 2017
By day, Hilary Grossman works in the booze biz. By night she hangs out with her “characters.” She has an unhealthy addiction to denim and high heel shoes. She’s been known to walk into walls and fall up stairs. She only eats spicy foods and is obsessed with her cat, Lucy. She loves to find humor in everyday life. She likens life to a game of dodge ball – she tries to keep many balls in the air before they smack her in the face. She lives on Long Island.
I am a writer, blogger, book reviewer, and bon vivant and encourager. I have lived my entire life in Tropical Ohio. My goal is to make friends with everyone in the world. I am writing a fiction series, The Golden Age of Charli, that presents the problems and praises, and the love and laughter of family life and retirement.
