Staying at Daisy's by Jill Mansell

I really love reading Jill Mansell's books.  They are British Chick-lit as it's very best!

Daisy realized her husband was two-timing her when he was in a serious car accident with the floozy.  Unfortunately for him, it took his life.  But she decided then and now, she wouldn't settle for a player again.  So, she manages her father's hotel and spends some time with her friends and is getting by.

On one of her busier nights at the hotel, a reception and a wedding, she meets Dev Tycazk, a former rugby player who just rubs her the wrong way.  He may be part of the wedding party and he may be attractive, but she's been happy playing the singles scene.

But Dev comes back a few days later requesting a favor of Daisy.  Before you know it, the attraction is too powerful to deny.  But not only is love in the air for Daisy and Dev, but there's also Daisy's friend Tara, the maid.  Daisy's father Hector, Tara's aunt Maggie and the lovable porter Barney.  All of their stories are secondary to Daisy and Dev's but play out beautifully until you come to a very satisfactory ending. 

Great dialogue, extremely likeable characters all mesh together into a romantic romp that will keep you entertained from cover to cover.  There are a few surprises but I won't tell you about them so you'll be surprised too! Especially who Barney has been seeing!!! Another winner for Ms. Mansell -- I can't wait to see what she writes next!!


  1. I love Jill Mansell's books. I read Take A Chance on Me earlier this week and loved it. I just got this on my Kindle today for free, glad to know it is good.

  2. I don't know anyone who has read Jill's books and didn't like them. I love her characters!


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
