CLP Blog Tours Book Review: Dangled Carat by Hilary Grossman

Dangled Carat Hilary GrossmanReviewer: Samantha

Hilary Grossman is now on tour with CLP Blog Tours and Dangled Carat


Hilary had gotten used to dating the commitment-phobic Marc, thirteen years her senior. They had a great relationship–why rush into things? She saw no need to pressure him for marriage, believing that when the time was right, he would propose. But after they had been together for four years, their friends decided to take matters into their own hands, pushing Marc to propose and making Hilary realize how much she really did want to marry the man that she loved. Unfortunately, Marc still wasn’t ready–and their friends’ meddling in the form of a faux engagement party led to a disastrous New Year’s Eve that brought their relationship to an inevitable turning point.

I’ve been seeing a lot about this book, and I was so excited when I realized it was next in my to-read pile. Talk about a book living up to my expectations! I knew this story was a memoir, and I was curious how Grossman would write real life into a book. Let’s face it – a lot of our lives wouldn’t make a good novel, no matter how exciting or unique we think they are. But when you have a talented and dedicated author at the helm, it creates perfection. Grossman would leave us hanging throughout the book, skipping around time frames and scenarios, and that worked to keep my interest piqued throughout the entire read. At the end, my jaw actually dropped at one point – but I won’t tell you why or even if I was happy or sad about it, because I want you to read this book. Like right now. Loved it!
