Staying at Daisy's

By Jill Mansell. This is my second Mansell novel. Nancy turned me on to her. I am not/have not been sorry.

All business Daisy is the manager of a cozy country hotel, owned by her father, Hector, the life of every party. A year after Daisy’s cheating husband dies in a car accident, all the people she hoped to keep in separate parts of her life start to meet and fall in love. Genuinely happy for all of them, Daisy wants to stay out of it herself because she’s had her heart broken and knows how much it hurts. Not even dashing, rugby player Dev Tyzack can change her mind, until she meets Barney. And when Barney falls in love with the girl who was in the car with her husband during the accident, Daisy’s best friend Tara falls in love, then her father.

It’s only fair that Daisy follow suit.

Staying at Daisy’s was so many love stories wrapped into one book. I think that all the great stories are love stories. Whether between lovers or family members or friends, love is what makes a story.

Well done, Jill.

  1. Isn't Jill wonderful? Don't you just want to give her a big old hug? LOL I think this is actually one of the few Mansell books I haven't read, but who knows where I buried it. I'm so glad you found Jill Mansell's books. I just knew you'd love 'em. :)


You are a lovely person.
