Daisy Jones has hit rock bottom. Or so she believes.
A cheating boyfriend, trouble at work, having to move back in with her mother, and being forced to compare her brother’s loved-up, newly-wed status and brand-new shiny house with her own dire lack of prospects, isn’t what she imagined her life was going to be like at thirty. To top it all off, Christmas is just around the corner!
Daisy, bless her, thinks things can’t possibly get any worse, but when her ancient great-grandmother persuades her to plant a silver sixpence in the Christmas pud for luck, Daisy is about to discover that they most definitely can.
And a sixpence for luck was an absolute delight to read!
Is a heartwarming read with a dash of romance and lashings of laugh out loud moments.
Daisy is a character that I immediately warmed to. The story begins when Daisy returns home from work early to find her boyfriend in the arms of Carla who is actually Carl! Moving back home to her Mum was not what Daisy, at the age of 30 had on her list of future plans. In fact, losing her job, being mistaken for her brother’s mistress and falling in love with a very sexy doctor were all situations she hadn’t bargained for. When her Great Grandmother suggested Daisy put her lucky sixpence in the Christmas pudding for luck Daisy thought why not, and here the story begins.
Lilac has written a book which is totally relatable, haven’t we all got a ditsy friend who seems to have disaster written all over them? I really enjoyed the comedy factor throughout the book, it wasn’t cheesy predictable comedy more misunderstandings that ballooned out of control.
The love interest is a very sexy doctor but this is Daisy Jones and let’s face it the path of true love never goes smoothly!
If you’re looking for a book that will bring you lots of giggles and a surprise around every corner this is the book for you!
Look out for my guest post from Lilac on 28th November
All about Lilac
Lilac spends all her time writing, or reading, or thinking about writing or reading, often to the detriment of her day job, her family, and the housework. She apologises to her employer and her loved ones, but the house will simply have to deal with it!
She calls Worcester home, though she would prefer to call somewhere hot and sunny home, somewhere with a beach and cocktails and endless opportunities for snoozing in the sun…
When she isn’t hunched over a computer or dreaming about foreign shores, she enjoys creating strange, inedible dishes in the kitchen, accusing her daughter of stealing (she meant to say “borrowing”) her clothes, and fighting with her husband over whose turn it is to empty the dishwasher.
