If you already read Johnny Be Good you’ll be happy to find out that Daisy is actually Paola, Johnny's mysterious runaway PA. If you also read Baby Be Mine you’ll also have a pretty good idea of how this book ends… I had also read the summary of The Longest Holiday on Goodreads, so I had an even bigger spoiler on the story…
Nonetheless, I enjoyed this book as much as the others I’ve read so far from Paige Toon, she definitely earned a place among my favorite authors because all her book are quick

I don't give one-star ratings lightly, but this one certainly fits in with the other books I've given it to.

Since this book has a high average rating I realize that my dislikes about this book are very subjective and that obviously not everyone would agree. Nevertheless, here are my reasons for not enjoying Chasing Daisy:

1. The writing. First person present tense voice. I realize that this is par for the course in Young Adult books, and in some of those cases it works reasonably well (i.e. The H

When I started with this book, I genuinely expected to like it. And now, not even half way through, I'm mad, because quite honestly, it is NOT a good work of fiction.

First, the writing: it's juvenile, immature, and doesn't live up to it's promise. There's no real diversity in the 'team' , despite it being 'multinational'. Or whatever crap is spouted.

Secondly: The plot. Now, I could be wrong in saying that the attraction insta-love with Daisy and Will was over the top. Of course, I don't have en

This was the my first book by this author and a long time since I've read any click lit. I enjoyed it but it could have been so much better.

I liked the author's chatty style and the concept with F1 as the backdrop. I really liked the prologue and the first few chapters featuring Daisy and Luis; I was ready for a fun, feisty rollercoaster til they got their HEA but then the bulk of the book went on to be about Daisy's relationship with Luis' team mate, Will. As a couple Will and Daisy did not hav

Paige toon never disappoints with any of her books and Chasing Daisy was no exception. i loved the book and couldn't put it down. I didn't like Daisy's father he was a horrible man.

I loved how Daisy and her mum would speak to each other in Italian and he couldn't understand them. I thought he was a very pushy man and forced Daisy into things that she didn't want to do.

I really was shocked what happened to Will, i didn't expect that and really thought he and Daisy would end up together. But Whe

Chasing Daisy is Paige Toon’s third novel and is just as good as Lucy In The Sky and Johnny Be Good. Arguably it’s better but since I’d read all three again and again and again and never get bored I can’t really say that!

The story is of Daisy, whom we have met before in Johnny Be Good, but she was in a different guise. She is a front-of-house girl for an F1 team and gets to travel the world for free. Trouble is she isn’t totally over her famous ex, who broke her heart, and she’s just fallen head

Do not be fooled by the cover of this book. it may seem like your typical glittery chicklit novel, but it is so much more than that. I was truely moved by this book. It is an easy read; I read it in a day because I couldn't put it down. I am having trouble putting how much I loved this book into words. I just want to go all fan girl crazy on this review.


The story follows Daisy Rogers, a hilariously offensive in

The plot was pretty promising, but I haven't made it far enough to see if it actually got anywhere. I think I made it 15 pages in before I just couldn't ignore how annoyed I was getting at the author's writing style. It's really too bad -- underneath the way over-exaggerated "spunk" of the main character and the cliched meet cute, there were definitely some mindlessly enjoyable reading times to be had. I don't know what it is that turned me off so quickly -- maybe it was the unbelievable, immatu ...more

Crazy Amazing!!

The best Paige Toon's book ever. It's the kind of book that I love everything in every pages and wished it never finished.

The story was set on several different country because Daisy works as a front-of-house girl in hospitality and catering for a Formula 1 team, so she goes all around the world wherever the team would race with 2 gorgeous hot racers who she had a crush for one of them at hate for the other. .

The plot is crazy shocking and even a bit too fast, the ending is pretty

Always loving Paige Toon

If anyone loved F1 racing your in for a treat.

So I wasn't a fan of this book to tell you the truth. It wasn't horrible, but it just wasn't good. I've read my fair share of chick-lit, and this doesn't even make the top 100 for me. That being said, I enjoyed certain parts of the story and I definitely enjoyed the setting and the Formula 1 scene that was present throughout the book.

Daisy is not bad for a female protagonist, although her immediate obsession with Will (one of the race drivers) was very annoying. The fact that he already has a g

4.5 stars. Really loved this one. I was expecting a light chic-lit read, but it was so much more than that! Unlike the first book by Paige Toon (Lucy in the Sky), this one didn't have much Aussie flavour at all. At first this was disappointing because that's what drew me to this author to begin with. However, I soon forgot about that aspect and was drawn into this fast paced plot that had me smiling to myself one minute and sniffing back tears at the next.

The story is based around F1 racing. I d

Okay, let me start by saying that this story was not terrible, despite my 2 star review. I had certain issues though, such as the length (or as i think of it, the run-time) of this book. It was very long, and had the cadence almost resembling a tv show, in that it felt like many episodes over a two season run (honestly, it's a great premise for a prime time drama, someone needs to snatch this up). However translating that into a single novel, it felt long and drawn out. Second issue I had was wi ...more

I normally try to pick books with a high average rating so I'm not disappointed after I've finished. Unfortunately that didn't help with Chasing Daisy. I had a couple issues with this story.

1) The length. I have no problem reading long books. I prefer shorter ones but if the story is good then long is okay cause I don't feel like it's dragging. I feel like the author could have cut out a good 1/4 of the novel and it still would have been just as good.

2) The relationship with Will. Page wise she

As a romance reader who doesn't want to know anything below the belt, some parts had simply too much information. Just saying.

Daisy has an exciting job traveling the world. There's lot of visiting pubs in exotic locations, hanging out with mechanics, learning to swear in different languages, and getting caught up in the thrill of the race. On a side note, Daisy can speak Italian! Isn't that cool!

It's quite the messy love square. Luis likes Daisy, Daisy's crushing on Will, Will's jealous of Luis

The first book of Paige Toon's that I read was 'Lucy in the sky' and i fell in love with it and when I was in a bookshop and saw the cover of 'chasing daisy' I knew it was one of Paige's books and I grabbed it, and of course fell in love with it too.

Daisy Rodgers works as a front-of-house girl for an F1 team and gets to do it along side her close friend, Holly. However, Daisy is not completely over her ex, she doesn't even read the papers in fear of her feelings for him rising once again. But n

The book was alright. That's all i can say. I don't hate it neither do i love it to bits and pieces.

The plot was interesting because till yet i have not read much about chicklit that involved racing. The idea is great but i think it has lost some of the initial novelty as the story developed along the way. I admit, i was bored by the character half way through. I found myself not caring for the characters as much as i would like to.

However, the author does have a sense of humour that made me cr

When I read the first few pages, I thought the book was funny and I was really excited to start reading it. Boy, was I disappointed.

First, the plot was very repetitive. They went to another country, had a race, Will and Luis fought more or less, and Daisy faffed around. There were many scenes that weren’t necessary. Sometimes I would wonder if I had opened on the wrong page because I was reading almost the exact same thing a couple of pages ago.

Second, I absolutely hate infidelity. I was wary w

Daisy Rogers bekerja dibagian hospitality di salah satu team yang mengikuti lomba balap F1. Tugasnya adalah menyediakan makanan dan minuman untuk para anggota team dan sponsor mereka. Disaat menjalankan tugasnya inilah Daisy bertemu dengan Luis Castro. Bukan pertemuan yang menyenangkan karena Luis hampir saja menabrak skuter Daisy. Bukannya meminta maaf Luis menuduh Daisy sebagai pengemudi yang tidak becus dan cabut begitu saja.

Daisy kemudian mengetahui kalau Luis ternyata adalah salah satu dari

This book surprised me. It kept me on the edge, and laughing the entire plane ride and I couldn't even put it down when I got to my destination. I LOVED IT. The dynamics of a love triangle has been exploited in many books lately, but this has to be one of my favourites. I felt her feelings for both guys were real and took time to develop. Insta-love is not really as believable as a blossoming friendship which eventually led to love. Although this story was about love, it was also a journey of se ...more

I usually give 1 star to books I didn't finish. I read the first three chapters. Skimmed through the 4th and 5th and then read the last one and was happy I didn't read the whole book because the story seems a bit depressing. I didn't bother with the epilogue. And I usually love epilogue.

So why didn't I like this one?

1) The voice of the character writing is extreme juvenile. Very linear and unemotional.
2) Until chapter 5 she hasn't had a single real conversation with Will or Luis. What's the p

Daisy bekerja sebagai in-front-house girl alias di bagian hospitality yang ngurusin catering dan makannya sebuah tim F1. Atau istilahnya bun tart. Karena pekerjaannya ini, Daisy bisa keliling dunia, ke negara tempat racing sedang berlangsung. Enggak ada yang tahu kalau sebenarnya Daisy ini anak orang kaya terkenal gitu, deh, di Amrik.
Karena pekerjaanya juga Daisy berkenalan dengan Will, salah seorang racer. Dan Luis Castro, second racer di tim itu yang dijuluki si anak ajaib karena di tahun pert

Chasing Daisy
The book Chasing Daisy by Paige Toon, is very interesting and fast paced. The story line is complex and unpredictable. Basicly a young woman about 23 has left all her family and friends in America, she packed her things and moved to Brazil with a broken heart. She got a job catering for a Formula 1 racing team, she falls in love with one of the drivers. This causes many difficulties and heart ache throughout the book.
