First I would say that Jill Vogt is a talented writer. Her descriptions of people and places are on the whole very good, and she does some really funny and interesting things with characters and plot.
I liked her main character, Daisy, because she is fun and smart and adventuresome. The story is that Daisy has lost, due to death, her boyfriend and is trying to find new and positive meanings and love in life. She’s like someone you would want to be friends with, and whenever someone can write such a real and likable character, it’s due to talent, like I said before.
Her descriptions of other characters are also realistic, because she uses individual details given in pieces through the book instead of the usual get-it out of the way descriptive blurb so many writers use. That’s an example of why I like this author’s style. Also she writes descriptions of nature very well. I looked at her biography and saw she is a poet, so that is probably why. Would recommend!
In the pages of this quirky book, you are brought to realize that sometimes you DO have to go through hell before you get to heaven, to coin the words of a song...
Daisy Young lost the love of her life, Brody to a terrible accident. It flat out devastated her. There was also a relationship with an older man named Cameron. Of the two, Brody was the one man she couldn't let go of. His memory was seared in her mind and I think she just didn't want to let go. She was afraid.
Quite by chance, Daisy ends up in a small town in Tennessee, in an attempt to escape and start all over again. Trying to pick up the shattered pieces of her life, she meets Luke.
Sometimes, love comes into your life through something as simple as a friendship. After meeting Luke, Daisy quickly realized that she and Luke shared a love of poetry. Their friendship started out innocently, yet blossomed into so much more. It was simple, it was deep, it was passionate, it was complicated. It's as if the two of them were destined to be together, yet a dark horse, a woman named Allison was thrown into the equation. Daisy finally gives herself, heart, body and soul to Luke, yet she is told by one of Luke's friends that Allison and Luke are 'friends with benefits'. Where does that leave Daisy? She's falling in love with Luke, but is SHE actually the friend with benefits? Why does Luke hold feelings for Allison? What is the hold she has on him?
Throughout this journey, you will feel the unconditional friendship that develops between Luke and Daisy. You'll feel as she spreads her wings and lets go....Read more ›
I loved Daisy's story of loss and renewal. She's a character I could identify with and would want as a friend. The author did a wonderful job of showing Daisy's growth after the loss of her beloved fiance. She's grieving, lost, and running from everything that reminds her of the life she almost had. But Daisy is a strong woman, stronger than she even realizes when we first meet her. After settling in Hillstop, she has a chance encounter with Luke while she's stranded alongside the road with a flat tire. He helps her change the tire and their chemistry is obvious, the banter between them easy. Their common interest and talent for poetry brings them together. I enjoyed the way these friends took their time getting to know each other before graduating to lovers. They both have their own baggage to organize and do so together and apart. Another thing I also loved was the colorful supporting cast in this story. Each character was well-defined with a depth I don't often find in my reading.
Please give The Fizgig a place on your cyber shelf. You won't be disappointed.
