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.
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.
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.
Well Daisy is just that. Down on her luck. Caught boyfriend cheating. CHECK Move back home in her mother's home. CHECK Becoming a member of the woman man haters club. Double CHECK Can life get any worse? Well grandma Gee Gee seems to think that giving her grand daughter a Sixpence will bring her luck and maybe just maybe life will get back on track for Daisy. Well that is after you mix up ingredients to make Christmas pudding, everyone take a turn to stir the pudding with wishes, wish on the Sixpence before putting it in the pudding, cook the pudding for 8 hours and then finally eat the pudding finding the Sixpence. Whoosh!!! Luck is yours! That is if you don't choke on it first.
This book is hilariously funny. A perfect read for the holiday season. I really loved the concept that the book is centered around. Sixpence for Luck! How exciting right!?! I really enjoy reading books with a fun fact item that the a story is built around.
This was such a feel good read. I smiled, laughed, frowned and cried. A highly entertaining read full of witty fun and romance. I had a hard time putting the book down. I was hanging on, not wanting to miss what would happen to Daisy next. If it weren't for bad luck Dasiy dear would have no luck at all. This book had some real doozy twists in it. Some will have you in stitches. Others will have you mad and some will make you cry.
The characters have such charisma and charm. I especially found Freddie to be funny as hell anda little bit on the dramatic side. I fell in love with Dr Hartley. He is so dreamy and slightly silly with his overactive imagination. As that imagination got him into a bit of trouble with Daisy now and then. Poor Poor Daisy. Man did she have it rough.
This is the second book by Lilac Mills that I have read. I really enjoy her way of writing romance. She makes the stories so entertaining with charming and funny characters. Her books are very enjoyable. The characters are developed and the stories flow so smoothly. She takes a book with a serious side to it and adds in a romantic charm with a funny twist. I will definitely be on the look out for more from this author.
