Review: Dangled Carat by Hilary Grossman

Non-Fiction, Memoir


Hilary Grossman

Release Date:
September 2013

This is the true story of how one woman turned a commitment-phobic man into a loving husband (with a little help from friends and family). This is the story of Hilary and Marc.

I have to commend fellow blogger, Hilary Grossman, for her courageousness in writing this book. She opened her heart and let it flow into the pages of her story. Not many people would leave their emotions open to the world, but she did and she did it beautifully. You can feel the pain, joy, happiness, love and fear all rolled up in one relationship. Readers can’t help but feel the emotional rollercoaster ride she took on her journey to marriage.

She doesn't only talk about her relationship with Marc, but she also writes about losing her father at an early age and her relationship with her mother.  She shares her life with the readers.

Dangled Carat is fast-paced.  Once I started, I couldn’t stop. Hilary puts into words the fears and emotions many women go through. It’s easy to identify with her and feel everything she is going through as you flip through each page. It’s believable, realistic and well written. What an amazing job she did!

FTC Disclosure: The author provided me with a copy of this book to review. This did not influence my thoughts and opinions in any way. All opinions expressed are my own.


  1. I like the cover, very cute looking :)

  2. It would take courage to write a book such as this one. It sounds like the honesty of this book draws you in.

  3. Yvonne - thank you so much for reviewing Dangled Carat! It was very hard to really open up and let my emotions flow onto the page but I did so in the hopes that another girl, in a situation like I was in, would relate and maybe I would be able to help her...
