Follow Friday Four Fill in Fun Blog Hop – week 142

Before we start filling in the blanks did you hear about the “Tis More Blessed Giveaway? Every Friday in December amazing authors are giving away their books!  For a full list of authors and books visit In Medias Res!

My book,DANGLED CARAT is one of the prizes!    The raffelecopter is below:

goodreadsHilary 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.

In this relatable, lighthearted, and playful memoir, Hilary reminisces about her life before Marc—from the insecure and awkward teenage years she spent in a back brace and dealing with the loss of her father, to her early relationships and, finally, to the day she met Marc and realized that she really wanted to see him again. Through their first date—even though Hilary was technically seeing someone else at the time—and the ease of their early time together until Marc first decided that they were moving too quickly, up until that fateful New Year’s Eve, Hilary shares the details of their relationship and how Marc’s inability to commit led her to find an inner strength and confidence she didn’t know she possessed.

  1. I can’t believe it’s the end of the year either! Have a great weekend!

  2. I can’t believe it is 5 days until Christmas either!!
    And that I am done shopping, most of my baking……it’s amazing. I have actually had time to relax a few days. thankfully so that my cold didn’t get worse. But I get what you mean — when you are used to move, move, move go go go; it is hard to just sit and relax. I always find something else needing done!

    A very Merry Christmas to you and yours! xx
