Plan Bea by Hillary Grossman

Plan Bea

How well do you really know the people in your life?

Annabel O’Conner has the perfect husband, two adorable children, an amazing job, and the mother from hell! Annabel doesn’t like it but has come to terms with the fact that her relationship with her mother, Bea, deteriorated to the point of forced and strained communications. However, an unscheduled call from Bea turns her world around and makes Annabel question everything she believed about her life.

Despite the fact secrets, lies, and misplaced blame have destroyed the women’s relationship; Annabel reluctantly agrees to help Bea plan her wedding. Little does Annabel know the impact of her decision.

In this Women’s Contemporary Fiction novel, Hilary Grossman explores the complex relationship that exists between mothers and daughters in a light-hearted and relatable manner.



I LOVED this book. It was fun, witty and by the end I wanted to call my own mother and try to rekindle our own rocky relationship. Bea is the mother that no one wants; hard, cold, dismissive. We come to find out exactly how she’s become this way but the damage has been done and her daughter Anna has learned the routine. One phone call a week while her mother is on her way to her nail appointment.

Imagine Anna’s surprise when Bea asks for her daughter’s help in planning her wedding! After a few arguments, a lot of tears and compromises on each end, Bea is able to open up to Anna and Anna is able to see the mother she remembered from her youth.
