Oh yes you bet I do wonder what the next book would be about Would it be another memoir or a fiction? I'd sure love to see what kind of fictional worlds she would create But I'm sure of one thing though no matter what the next book is about I know Hilary will put all her heart into it and deliver once again 'Dangled Carat' is a fab chick lit memoir you'd want to check no matter if you already got your Mr Right Hope you enjoy
