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.

It was character driven book set in London. This was a funny, gripping holiday themed Romcom, narrated by main character Daisy and revolve around her life at age 30, struggling to buy a house and finding a man who can love her just like she does. But looking at family history, women of her house never had a luck with men. A sixpence given by great granny for luck was just another thing added a series of bad luck to her life.

What I liked-

Everything!!! This was my first holiday themed chick-lit and now I’m thinking why I haven’t read more of such books. Setting, witty characters, and holiday theme was perfect blend and writing was great, easy to follow with perfect pace. Who can think a sixpence, an object, can create such a fuss and drama in someone’s life! It was very creative and fabulous concept. I’m so surely going to read more books by this author.

All characters felt so real and relatable. A mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and a saint sibling living Daisy’s dream life and giggly sister-in-law made awesome comedy drama in book. This book was so funny, I was giggling throughout the book like Zoe (I’m not vacant, of course). Most hilarious scene was the one when she caught her boyfriend with another man.

Three old biddies were the charm of the book. I don’t think I have laughed more if author haven’t included them in this drama. I loved four ladies and their bickering. It was fun to see four generation women in one book under one roof. Daisy’s voice, monologue was just plus element to this romcom.

“Three adult women in one house, and all related to each other? It was a recipe for disaster.”

Daisy’s nature was so good. Though her family was annoying and never miss a chance to pull her leg, she never voiced her thoughts and I liked her easily forgiving nature. She had habit of jumping to conclusion and not giving credit to herself that made me do forehead smack few times in the book. But I just loved this character, she was damn funny.

Zoe was so lovely. Initially this character was hidden behind main character and other ladies of the house but the way her character was written I knew she is going to play a nice important role later. She was very supportive to Daisy and her well wisher. I will give anything to have such sister-in-law. 😉

Romance between Daisy and Noah Hartley was cute and adorable. Noah was funniest doctor I ever read. This dude had a habit of jumping to wrong conclusions and I loved those scenes in the book. He was so romantic and I loved his style of dating, such an amazing guy and perfect for Daisy.

“If the connection is there, then time is immaterial. You can fall in love in a heartbeat, or you can be with the same person for years and not experience true love.”

Climax was unexpected. I couldn’t guess the surprise when he took her to his home. The end was sweet feel good type and epilogue was even sweeter. I wished this book never ended.

Overall, I simply loved this book. This was kind of book you can go blindly and never regret for picking. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for light refreshing read with holiday theme.


About author_edited

Author photo.jpgLilac 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.
