ABOUT THE BOOK
Struggling to find the perfect Christmas gift? Step into Romantic Daze …
Daisy Kirk is a sucker for a love story, which is why she opened up her gift shop – because there’s nothing that makes Daisy happier than when she’s helped a customer achieve their own ‘happily ever after’ by finding the perfect Christmas gift for their loved one. And she absolutely does not just sell ‘soppy presents and frilly pants’ as her brother’s infuriating best friend, Eli, is so fond of suggesting.
The sad fact is that whilst Daisy is helping others with their love lives, hers is non-existent. But when unusual circumstances take Daisy and Eli on a road trip from London to rural Wales, will she finally get the happily ever after to her own Christmas love story?
This was a lovely read full of surprises for me as a reader! I was expecting a light and fun read full of romance – there was plenty of that but also a more darker, thrilling side with the main characters having to track down a missing family member, that took them all out of their comfort zone.
And the comfort zone for Daisy is her lovely gift shop, Romantic Daze! It’s her happy place and she’s all about helping other people finding the right gift for loved ones, whilst never getting the happy ever after for herself! She’s always been a romantic but never seems to be lucky in love.In the background there’s always been her twin brothers’ best friend Eli – they seem to have a flirty but argumentative relationship! There’s always that spark between them which is really exciting to observe – it’s like when you were at school and a boy would say mean things to you, and that would mean he fancied you!
A character I really enjoyed was Lily – she’s the best friend of Daisy and also runs the local sex shop so there’s lots of fun to be had there in this book! She’s a great support to Daisy and is of the opinion ‘if you’ve got it, flaunt it’!!
With a new bloke on the scene, you get to wonder if that will push Eli and Daisy together on a more permanent basis, but their attention is soon turned by the disappearance of her brother and that brought new twists to the storyline that made it even more compelling to get through each page to see if Daisy would get the happy ending she so richly deserves!!
