You know what I hate about Jill Mansell? She has this knack of writing such great books that ‘I have half an hour to read before I MUST do housework’ turns into ‘MOM! Why is the house such a mess??’ Omg, is it that time already!?
What an amazing cast this book has. Daisy, who runs her father Hector’s hotel. Tara, Daisy’s best friend who works as a chambermaid and can’t seem to find herself a good man. Sexy and arrogant Dev who could probably have any girl he wants. Sweet Barney who just wants a quiet, family life. Mel – she has a secret that could ruin her new happiness. Josh, the funny ex-boyfriend and Maggie who is so in love, but no one knows it.
Staying at Daisy’s is another book full of charm and wit starring a plethora of interesting characters. I am always reminded of Maeve Binchy when I read Mansell – the way the people in the story come to know each other through exciting twists and turns, most of which you could never guess in advance. I love ‘full circle’ stories and Jill Mansell’s are always that. I want to read every single one. Seriously, give yourself a nice treat – put your feet up and enjoy. You’ll be sooo glad you did.
Many thanks to Sourcebooks for providing me with this book for review.
