Daisy Miller needs to save her book shop from going under, and she needs a plan fast. Her solution? Try out for TV's new Mystery Date show to get some free promotion.

Joel has put those pain

I had a hard time relating to the characters in Dating Daisy. We initially meet Joel in an academic setting and it appears that he's a fairly normal, typical, academic-type. But once he walks into Daisy's store, he spends much of the rest of the book coming across like much of a bumbling idiot. He can't remember Daisy's name for the next two or three times he's asked. He demonstrates clear disdain for her store, and most things about her. Even after Daisy and Joel become closer, he's quick to cr ...more

Crazy little read set in New Zealand. Cute tale Daisy has terrible luck with guys and is trying to make a go of a book store in her Grandma's honor. Daisy isn't very self confident and she learns a lot about herself in this tale. She goes on a Mystery Dating show to promote her store. Joel Benjamin is a History Professor who advised on a movie so he is riding a celebrity wave and is asked to be on the same Mystery Dating show. Quirky little love story.

An engaging if somewhat predictable love story - grab your wine and chocolates and settle down for an easy, light read.

I enjoyed this story. The way Joel and Daisy ended up on the dating show was believable - he because his brother-in-law coerced him, she to gain visibility for her store. Though the relationship did involve the couple sleeping together, that part of the story was pg or pg-13. (Which is good in my mind - I don't like reading details like that, though my preference is to not have them sleep together at all).

Cute story, set in NZ about a book shop owner on the brink of bankruptcy and a semi-famous historian hottie.

This was well written, with an interesting history of these two, but it's practically insta-love and that's a turnoff for me without more meat in the story. This is a light read, no intrigue, cheating or lying, and no super steamy sex scenes.

Sweet dirty

A hunk of a college professor, a struggling shop owner meet. Thanks to a promise from years ago Joel finds himself on a dating game. But lo and behold the date he chooses is daisy, shop owner, who knows his big sister. Will sparks fly? Or will it be a disaster? One thing is for sure, a free all expense paid trip will be enjoyed by them both.

Cute little romance

This book was fun from start to finish. From 10 years in the past a double blind date to a new dating show on TV this book is just funny and the characters are very likable.

I would recommend this book to like anyone who likes romantic comedy.
