Daisy writes wonderful, sweet, emotional, feel-good romances. Tinfoil Heart is another shining example, but this time with an unconventional bent. The book has a unique setting - both geographic and plot driven. Roswell, New Mexico (both its’ people and its’ history) is practically a character in the book as it plays such an integral part in the story. Now, I have a travel bug that seems to be drawing me toward New Mexico for an upcoming vacation!
Lucy is a fantastic heroine. She’s complex and emotional. Her family history has left a mark and caused her to guard her heart. Boone is steady and consistent, loyal and strong. He is Lucy’s perfect match!
The whole book is fun and thoroughly entertaining. But, the ending is probably my favorite part! Or, I should say the endingS are my favorite part! That’s right, you get TWO different endings, one for skeptics and one for believers. I am firmly in the believer category, but I loved the skeptics ending just as much! This is just another example this extraordinary story!
Fresh, fun, and swoony; I loved Tinfoil Heart and I think you will too! When you finish, come back and let me know if you’re a skeptic or a believer.

First up I really liked the premise of the book and as the basis of a rom com it could have been really great. But it's as though the author isn't quite sure what genre of story she is writing. It starts off as a rom com but doesn't use the basic set up of the story enough too make it really laugh out loud funny. Then the story veers into a romance with fairly graphic sex scenes. I like a good sex scene but they just don't really fit with a rom com which generally will be "fade to next scene" or will be agonisingly laugh out loud awkward sex. And then the story veers into a more serious examination of human emotions and stunted emotional development. As a result the story was made up of lots of good individual scenes that don't fit well together making it awkward and almost uncomfortable to read.
Whilst I liked the female lead Lucy and felt she was quite well developed as a character, the hero Boone is a bit of a mystery and the various parts of his personality portrayed at different points in the story don't seem to fit together. At some points he seems shy, at others a 'player', awkward in the next scene then a smooth lover in the next and so on. It is also never clear why he so drawn to Lucy.
I do like the secondary characters and the author does give a great sense of place.
Finally I am always a bit annoyed by authors who can't keep track of their stories. Sometimes it's major plot points that go awry. In this case it is little details and chronology. For example Lucy mentions not seeing Boone at the diner for several days and the next chapter is noting that he has never missed a day at the diner. There are quite a few of these examples scattered through the story.
Overall I still enjoyed the story and at times it verged on refreshing and brilliant so I will definitely try more of this author.
For personal reasons, Lucy has always been fascinated by the possibilites of different universes and life forms, and as she navigates her life in the capitol of all things other worldly, Roswell, she crosses paths with dreamy Boone, which rhymes with swoon, and swoon worthy he is!
As Lucy and Boone begin an electrifying friendship/relationship, their connection and adventures are fodder for much laughter and longing, as the reader can't help but cheer them on as they explore adventures together and discover each other on many different levels. And as always, Daisy Prescott is a master of creating supporting characters to embrace and adore.
I found TINFOIL HEART to be unique and refreshing! Take a chance, and believe in this book! The Little Green Men will thank you for it!!

Another beautiful story from Daisy Prescott, she’s definitely one of my ‘must buy’ authors.
Lucy and Boone each have their own very special baggage, but - with a little help from their friends - they work things out in the end.
And I guess I'm a skeptic, since I preferred that version of events... :)
Even though I'm usually not a big fan of first person present POV, Daisy Prescott makes it work. I think it's a perfect fit for Lucy's personality.
