Such a contrast to D H Sidebottom's more darker and brilliant books Caged and Chained.
The Bunk up is Funny, sexy, akward and did I say funny? This is a book you should read after an angst filled marathon! Bloody Marvellous
Daisy's life is sailing along nicely, she works in the post office, has a loving boyfriend of 8 years and good friends, until one day she catches her boyfriend in bed with another woman, looses her job at the post office and her life comes tumbling down around her. Mrs H, a lady who has been driving Daisy mad by popping into the post office and insisting that only Daisy serves her, takes Daisy to heart after a meltdown in the local chemist and offers her her holiday home in Norfolk to get away from it all for a couple of weeks. It sounds like heaven to Daisy- that is until she arrives and finds that the holiday home is already occupied by Frazier McNeil and with only one bedroom between them things get mighty complicated when they both refuse to leave.
I loved the book as the mannerisms of Daisy are funny and she loves her little rants and is a feisty young lady which Frazier doesn't expect, he has a battle on his hands, and when Daisy's mum Shirley turns up too, OMG you are in for a treat. Talk about embarrassment and a dirty mind to boot, it made her one of my favourite characters. Frazier himself is hot and swoon-worthy but at times I wanted to punch him in the face - hard !! he could be so infuriating. This book isn't just funny, it is romantic and the added sex scenes are hot !! There are secrets that pop out from the woodwork to make your eye's fill up and your heart ache just a little and Mrs H turns out to be the darling you never expected - I loved her.
Love both of these authors and would recommend this book be read as soon as possible , with a follow up to come called The Dust Up I can't wait to see what these lovable characters get up to next time !!!!
What a good collaboration between Andie M. Long and D H Sidebottom. The story was very true to life; funny and touching. The characters are just so familiar, I felt as if I have known Daisy for years. Daisy's Mum, Shirley, is just super inappropriate on a hilarious way! I wouldn't want her to be my Mum but I would love to know her! She has no morals, manners, dignity or decorum; all this makes it fantastic to read. So cringe worthy! The story was well paced and I loved the outcome.
Daisy has been in a relationship with Marcus for 8 years, she dreams of a perfect wedding but he has yet to propose. Daisy is sacked from her job in the post office; last in, first out. She comes home to find Marcus in her bed, having sex with another woman! She leaves him (quite comically) and goes to her friend’s house; her friend with three 'evil pixies' for children. A regular 'pain in the butt' customer from the post office, Mrs Haversham, comes to Daisy's rescue, offering her the use of her cottage in Norfolk, for how ever long she needs it.
Daisy arrives in the one horse village and finds she will be sharing the house with Mrs Haversham's secret son. Hilarious times ensue and wires are crossed.
You have to read this…the ending is just fabulous.
Daisy is happy with her normal life, working in the post office, and dreaming that some day her boyfriend of 8years will one day propose. She thinks she's happy with this until one day a bomb is dropped on life as she knows it, and then a second, and everything is turned upside down. After a huge melt down in the chemist Daisy is comforted by Mrs Haversham the old lady she's previously tried to avoid like the plague when working at the post office. Mrs H has a proposal for her and Daisy regrets being so mean to the old lady. Now she's leaving her hometown of Chesterfield and moving into a Cottage in Beydon Norfolk for a few weeks. What she doesn't expect to find when she gets there is another house guest- Frazer McNeil! With only one bedroom in the house and both Frazer and Daisy refusing to leave, the idea of the Bunk-up is born!
I couldn't get enough of this book, read it in one day because I didn't want to put it down, and now I'm sad that it's over. It's the perfect mix of funny and romantic and I found myself smiling an chuckling the whole way through! Daisy changes as soon as she gets to Beydon and it's definitely for the better. Absolutely loved hers and Frazer's antics! With terms like 'foo' and 'twatwaffle' I was in stitches, Daisy is unique and loveable and her little rants just make the entire book! Her mother Shirley has got to be the most embarrassing mother ever and it's hilarious just how much she manages to embarrass Daisy!
I can't believe this is written by two authors it's put together so well, and I can't wait for the next instalment 'The Dust Up'! Five stars from me!
