Could falling in love allow a cold, stubborn, and selfish women 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 has no relationship with her grandchildren and the only time she speaks to 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 and impressing the ladies at her country club.
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, and an amazing job. The only thing missing is her mother's love. When Bea begs her daughter to help plan her wedding, Annabel reluctantly agrees. Little does she know the impact of her decision or the surprise that is in store for her!
Y’all probably think I have a ton of favorite authors. I actually do. I’ll post about that some other time. Right now, I need to gush about Hilary Grossman’s newest release, PLAN BEA. I didn’t sleep the night I started reading this book. I’ve been waiting for this book since Hilary first mentioned that she was writing it. I yelled at Hilary the next morning and told her that kleenex warnings are necessary for her books in the future. (I’m warning all of you now to grab a few…) There were definitely a few things that were relatable and several scenes that kept me guessing. Actually, the whole book had me guessing, and I will say that it did not end as I thought. Hilary did an amazing job with Plan Bea and I hope she gets the next book finished quick. I’m already having withdrawals from these characters!!
