The storyline of Spooning Daisy is so unique, which was an awesomely refreshing treat for a jaded book-blogger such as myself ;) Parts of it just sucked me right in and, before I knew it, an hour had passed and I wasn't ready to put the book down!
That being said, there were some parts that involved, let's just say, atypical "romance hero" behavior. But the chuckles I got throughout and the wonderful ending were well worth the scoffs I gave Max in the beginning.
All in all, I really enjoyed this story and its myriad of characters, and I otter be excited about the next Otter Bite novel!

Enter Spooning Daisy by Maggie McConnell. From the pun in the title to the fast-paced dialogue to the different and compelling storytelling, I was captured and captivated.
Neither Daisy nor Max are characters who easily back down or admit they’re wrong so that makes verbal jousting inevitable; the resulting dialogue is witty, and kind of reminded me of old Katharine Hepburn comedies in which the dialogue takes on a rapid fire presentation.
It seemed in every way, except for a required HEA, Spooning Daisy defied convention. (Thank you!) Maybe it’s because the characters are slightly older than the 20-somethings I’ve been reading about lately, but Daisy and Max seemed more like real people who knew life existed outside of “finding a mate.” There were no angst moments although there was considerable self-examining. Both have depth, as do all of the other characters in the novel. And, speaking of the other characters, Rita, who works at Wild Man Lodge, and Charity, who is Daisy’s best friend, are great supporting characters. They frequently play devil’s advocate and provide the punchlines.
There are many, many funny moments. One which had me laughing out loud was a scene in which Daisy is walking back to her cabin at night and mishears “Yogi go” as yogigo and thinks it might be a Japanese person calling for help. The internal dialogue and musings and then the resulting action are just too funny.
Now, I know that this book won’t appeal to all romance readers because I know that there are readers who love the angsty, pity parties that I loathe, but if you’re a reader who doesn’t read romances because most of them are kind of superficial and not directed toward smart women, you might want to give this one a go, especially if you like to laugh, don’t mind a touch of slapstick, and like a world where people might just discuss Roman Emperors. I could definitely go on and on, but won’t. I’m thinking that I will make sure I keep tabs on this author and may even do the inconceivable and read this book again.

In Spooning Daisy, the first book in the Otter Bite Romance Series, author Maggie McConnell weaves a delightfully lighthearted tale set in Otter Bite, Alaska, that follows the unexpected romantic relationship between chef Daisy Moon and Wild Man Lodge owner Max Kendall. Daisy and Max meet at her garage sale in Seattle, where she is getting rid of her ex-fiance's belongings before she starts a new life in Otter Bite, Alaska. But their unexpected meeting leads to more unexpected meetings and hilarious trials and tribulations that follows Daisy and Max from Seattle to Alaska. Along the way, Daisy and Max need to overcome obstacles and mishaps in order to find a common ground that will lead them to a happily ever after ending.
Spooning Daisy is an entertaining romantic comedy that will keep the reader in stitches. You can't help but follow Daisy and Max's story as their relationship is full of serendipitous encounters and hilarious misadventures, and cheer them on as they seek common ground and a lasting love.
With a quirky cast of characters, witty dialogue and humorous / dramatic interactions, and a richly vivid description of Otter Bite, Alaska, Spooning Daisy is a witty tale that is full of sass and charm, it's tongue-in-cheek humor will keep the reader in stitches, thoroughly engaged, and smiling to the very end.
Spooning Daisy is simply rom-com at its very best!
It didn't pick up till I reached 50%.
I'm skimmed read till she got to her chef job. As I continued to keep reading Max becomes a complete #asshole, there's is nothing redeeming about him at all. He's not charming, likable or anything. For me to enjoy a story I need to like the couple only liking one-half makes it difficult to get into the story.
I kept skim reading and I couldn't go any further with the book.
