About the Author

Elizabeth Hayley is actually "Elizabeth" and "Hayley," two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands' chagrin). "Elizabeth" lives with her husband, one and a half year old daughter and nut-job of a dog. "Hayley" lives with her husband and her own crazy dog. They are hoping to adopt a newborn soon. Elizabeth Hayley's writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: "I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind.

*This is book two in a series and you MUST read Pieces of Perfect first, since Picking Up the Pieces is a continuation of book one.  Here is my review of Pieces of Perfect* Picking Up the Pieces picks up after Pieces of Perfect left us all breathless and in shock.  Right off the bat I knew I was going to have a love/hate issue with Lily and her men, love triangle stress me out but this one is written so well, it is easy to forget you should be torn in your decision.  I will admit that I liked how Elizabeth Hayley ended Pieces of Perfect and was actually fine with how they ended that story, I really would have been content with Pieces of Perfect being the end of the road for these characters.  However, I am glad they decided to give us more! I was hesitant to start Picking Up the Pieces because I knew who Lily ended up with in my mind and I was afraid that the wonderful ladies that make up Elizabeth Hayley might not get "my story" right.  Such a silly reason to fear picking up a book, right?  Well I am glad I did sit down and read Picking Up the Pieces!  It gave me everything I didn't realize I was missing and a wonderful story that left me satisfied, weepy and laughing at some of the fantastic one-liners. Since this is a second book in a series (which left us dangling after the first book) I am hesitant to say more about the story other than if you read Pieces of Perfect you NEED to read this book, don't be afraid like I was, jump in and get wrapped up in the Lily drama all over again! Elizabeth Hayley does a wonderful job of entertaining the reader with their witty, snarky, and off the wall dialogue while keeping up the tension and sexiness along the way.  I loved the vulgar, foul-mouthed characters and really enjoyed getting to know more about each of the three main characters with with multiple POVs.  The writing is funny, fast paced and full of emotional situations that really push the characters and reader. I am a fan of Elizabeth Hayley and I would LOVE to get one more book with Lily and her final choice.  There is a great sneak peak into their next spin off book in this series at the end of Picking Up the Pieces and while I can't wait to read that, I really want more from Lily and "the winner" *hint*. If you read Pieces of Perfect you are going to be overjoyed with Picking Up the Pieces.  If you haven't read this series, fear not the cliffhanger in Pieces of Perfect and grab both of these great books and get started reading.  I would love to hear who you think Lily should pick and what you thought about how it all turned out!
