Book Drunkard

“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

Staying at Daisy’s by Jill Mansell, review


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.

  1. Thank you so much AGAIN for saying such lovely things about my books. Barney is one of my favourite characters – he’s just adorable, isn’t he?
    And sorry about the housework! xx

  2. I love Barney! I was rooting so hard for him. Thanks for stopping by, Jill. And don’t worry about the housework. It ended up done eventually – that’s what we have kids for, right? :p
