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.
Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Happily married, Cecelia Reynolds world is turned upside down when the judge presiding over her best friend’s wedding, turns out to be Keith Emerson, the man she walked out on years ago when he couldn’t commit.
All the feelings of abandonment and rejection come back to Cecelia with a vengeance. When Keith professes that he’s never gotten over Cee, her carefully constructed world begins to fall apart. Emotions that Cee buried long ago, stretching back to childhood surface and threaten to destroy everything she’s come to hold dear.
Plan Cee is an amazing story! It’s the sequel to Plan Bea but can be read as a standalone. You’ll need to put on your big girl panties to get through this story. It deals with weighty subjects and flawed people. In the end, it’s an adult love story that will tear your heart out, but leaves you with a sense of hope.
Hilary Grossman is such a good writer! You feel like you’re a fly on the wall, listening in on intimate conversations. It’s damn uncomfortable at times because you see the train wreck coming from a mile away and there’s nothing you can do but watch in horror as the inevitable happens.
Lisa Beacom narrates this nearly 8-hour audiobook and she outdid herself on this one! The story required a wide range of emotions and she nailed it every time, in this fully voiced production. Some scenes were so intense, I literally had to pause the audiobook! Plan Cee is a well-produced audiobook and the sound quality is first rate.
2017 has been a banner year for audiobooks, I’ve listened to several good stories this year. Plan Cee stands out as the best I’ve listened to so far and that’s saying something.
This audiobook was gifted to me in exchange for an unbiased review!

“Although a light read, the subject matter was very sad at times and I found myself choking back tears, but in a good way! It was so authentically heart wrenching yet often very funny too. The characters were so well fleshed out and three dimensional – no one was perfect and no one was fatally flawed – like real life. I thought the twist was genius!” – Meredith Schorr Best Selling Authorauthentically heart wrenching yet often very funny too.
