Editorial Reviews


"... organic and universal. [Dee Ernst] has written a funny, smart novel." —The Star-Ledger

"Ms. Ernst has created such a splendid story in A Slight Change of Plan. This book took me back to the days of when I use to read Erma Bombeck. ... Anybody looking for a great fun relaxing book will want to read this... highly recommend..." —The Jeep Diva, 5 stars

"This is the most 'hysterically funny romance intertwined with drama' that I have ever read. I didn't expect the ending. The writing style, setting, pace, and different voices portrayed by Ms. Ernst are carefully put together." —Trully, Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance & More

About the Author

Dee Ernst was born in Newark, New Jersey, and grew up in Morristown. She attended Marshall University, where she majored in journalism. Several years, career changes, and a few daughters later, she was listening to the Joan Hamburg Show, where a guest made the suggestion that if you want to be happy, you should go back to what you were doing when you were ten and try to make it a career. Since Dee was writing stories when she was ten, she decided to give writing another go. After three novels and many rejection letters, she self-published Better Off Without Him. Her next book, A Different Kind of Forever, was released in April of 2012. In the spring of 2013, she signed with Montlake Publishing, which re-released Better Off Without Him and launched her third title, A Slight Change of Plan, that fall. Though Dee finds a lot in common with all her heroines, she is happily married and living in New Jersey.

Format: Kindle Edition
Book: A Slight Change of Plan
Author: Dee Ernst
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Length: Approximately 352 Pages

I've put off writing my review for A SLIGHT CHANGE OF PLAN by DEE ERNST for quite a few days. The reason is simple. I just don't want to face the fact that I've finished it. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book! I just hate that it had to end, and I want Ms. Ernst to know that I WANT MORE FROM THESE CHARACTERS! I'm begging you to write a follow up.

Kate Everett is ready to simplify her life. Her husband died eight years ago, her children are grown and out of the house and she has a stressful job as a tax attorney. She decides to sell the big house and buy a condo, quit her job for something she loves to do and start dating again.

That's when the fun begins! Her youngest son and his girlfriend move into the upstairs of her new condo. Her mom that hasn't spoken a word to Kate in years can no longer live alone, so she has to move into Kate's basement. Her first love and the man she never got over after he dumped her in college has just "waved" to her on the Internet dating site her sister signed her up on.

I highly recommend this book for all women, but if you are over the age of forty-five, this is a MUST read! The interactions between Kate and her friends and family had me laughing so hard, I had to put my Kindle down because I could no longer see the screen through the tears of laughter. This is a superbly written account of the life of a mature woman and I WANT MORE!!!!!

I read an ARC copy of A SLIGHT CHANGE OF PLAN by Dee Ernst and now I have to wait until it's released before I can gift a copy to my friends. I'm counting the days down because I know that they will love it as much as I did.

I received a complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review. No spoilers - just a general outline.

Dee Ernst has done it again. After the first 100 pages, I actually got out a highlighter to mark favorite favorite lines and conversations. At one point I was laughing so hard I dropped the book and just couldn't stop. (Y'all will know where, when you read about Marco and Cheryl's date.) An honest, true-to-life book about a 55 year old widow, her slightly nutty family, her fabulous friends, and the re-emergence of the love of her life, who dumped her in college. I wish I was part of Kate's circle.

I fell immediately in love with all the characters (well, maybe Tom not so much), and cannot wait for this to be released so my pre-ordered copy on Kindle arrives and I can re-read it, highlighting some of my favorite passages ("My Italian mother belonged to one of the more complicated religious affiliations - Lapsed Catholicism)for all to see. I pulled out her other two books to re-read and comment on, since I rated but didn't leave comments. She is definitely on my pre-order list, books sight unseen.

I really wanted to like this book, but it seemed very forced and contrived. Pick a social issue du jour, and it's in there somewhere. Adult kids coming back home, a gay son and his partner finding a surrogate mother to have a child for them, one professional daughter with the MIL from hell, old friend growing and smoking pot, dead husband who cheated, the list just goes on. Seriously? It wasn't entertaining, let alone humorous, although it tried to be. Ugh. Don't waste your time.

My rating: 4.5 of 5 ⭐️

With her daughter preparing for her wedding and her youngest son getting ready to graduate from University, widow Kate Everett decides it is finally time for her to make some changes. First of all she wants to downsize. Everything. She gives up her job as a high profile tax lawyer, hoping to do something a little less time consuming, and she sells the big house her kids were raised in and buys a much smaller, but fabulous condo in a luxury townhouse complex. Kate has even, albeit reluctantly, signed up with an online dating site. It's time to move on with her life! Easy going from here on in.....

Of course, the ink hasn't dried on the contracts for the house, or her youngest announces he wants to move back home, and not just that, he is bringing his girlfriend, the one Kate knew nothing about until just then, with him. That wasn't the end of it, the perfect part time job she had lined up suddenly lost it's funding and no longer existed. Then there was the wave hello, on the dating website, from the man who crushed her heart thirty odd years ago.....the big-love-lost, who came right before the man she ended up marrying. That certainly had been nowhere in her plans......

And last, but in no way least, there is her mother, with whom she has not communicated in years, because the woman can carry a mean grudge, who after a nasty fall can no longer stay in her own house and needs someone to look after her. guessed it, Kate has the space and the time, and even though mommy dearest does her best to boycott the hell out of the transition, she ends up in Kate's basement. So much for that peaceful 'empty nest' Kate had been dreaming about.
