#BookReview: Plan Cee by Hilary Grossman

plan ceeSummary:

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.

Review:

I have been eagerly awaiting to read Plan Cee after highly enjoying Plan Bea, and whoa – was I not disappointed! Like stated in the synopsis, this book can be read as a standalone though we do meet the characters in Plan Bea, but I would recommend you read that regardless but it’s a great story and gave me joy to catch up with the main characters from that novel. I enjoyed this book because it’s real and honest and shows how people make mistakes and how they cope with the aftermath. There were times it was hard to read because I was sad, I didn’t agree with Cecelia but . . . she’s human. She’s flawed. And she made for such a fantastic heroine. Another solid read from Hilary Grossman. If you don’t her yet on your to-read list, put her on there.

#BookReview: New Attitude by Kathryn R Biel

new attitudeSummary:

As if it’s not bad enough that I didn’t win the reality design TV show I was on, try coming home to a one word note indicating that my ten-year marriage is over. So here I am, a suddenly single mother in my mid-thirties, doing what everyone advises me to do—have a fling. Except it doesn’t go as planned, so I do the next best thing, which is sit on the couch and mope. But having to provide for a five-year-old doesn’t let me stay home for too long. Before I know it, I’m back to dying my hair wild colors and trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life.
Except Tony, the fling that wasn’t, keeps popping up in the most unlikely places and won’t leave me alone. I’d like to be strong—I’m way too old for him—but he’s cute and funny and sexy and oh, my ex is getting married to a girl named Bambi. All I know is the way I’m doing things isn’t working. If I want to be happy again, I’m going to need to get a new attitude.

Review:

YAY!!! A follow up to Made For Me, a novel from Kathryn R Biel that I thought was fantastic! Now we are back with the characters, and this time following Kira. Kira’s life isn’t so great after returning from a reality show – she learns her husband has been unfaithful and is leaving her, and she’s suddenly a single mom living with her own mother. I thought it was so great to get to know Kira even better, and she was so easy to relate to. She takes quite a journey in this fast-paced read, and the ending took me totally by surprise!  I always love what this author brings us, and New Attitude is no exception!

#BookReview: I See You by Clare Mackintosh

i see youSummary:

The author of the New York Times bestseller I Let You Go propels readers into a dark and claustrophobic thriller, in which a normal, everyday woman becomes trapped in the confines of her normal, everyday world…
 
Every morning and evening, Zoe Walker takes the same route to the train station, waits at a certain place on the platform, finds her favorite spot in the car, never suspecting that someone is watching her…

It all starts with a classified ad. During her commute home one night, while glancing through her local paper, Zoe sees her own face staring back at her; a grainy photo along with a phone number and a listing for a website called FindTheOne.com.

Other women begin appearing in the same ad, a different one every day, and Zoe realizes they’ve become the victims of increasingly violent crimes—including murder. With the help of a determined cop, she uncovers the ad’s twisted purpose…A discovery that turns her paranoia into full-blown panic. Zoe is sure that someone close to her has set her up as the next target.

And now that man on the train—the one smiling at Zoe from across the car—could be more than just a friendly stranger. He could be someone who has deliberately chosen her and is ready to make his next move…

Review:

This book had me SHOOK! If you follow me on Snapchat, I pretty much documented my experience reading I SEE YOU because I had to tell everyone about it and my feelings. From goosebumps on my arms to my shocked face at the end, this book gave me all sorts of feels, chills, and OMG moments. I thought at least four times I knew who the serial killer was… and I was so wrong. Couldn’t stop reading from beginning until to end. A true twisted thriller that will have you second-guessing everybody. Must-read for thriller fans.
