And Lucy is right.
Every dress should have pockets.
So should cardigans.

The cover is the first thing that grabbed my attention! In Tinfoil Heart, Lucy goes looking for answers of her father's supposedly alien abduction but ends up with more in Roswell, New Mexico (don't want to give anything away). Don’t worry this book is not all about aliens and conspiracy theories. It has humor, romance, lovable characters and great settings. I loved revisiting places with Lucy and Boone in SE New Mexico: Cloudcroft, Carlsbad Caverns, Alamogordo, and White Sands. On a side note, ...more

Holy effing spaceballs...I love Tinfoil Heart and all it's conspiracy theories.
PEOPLE...this amazing! Listen to me! I am shouting to you from a sinkhole...
You need to read this book! It's a breath of fresh air. It has a supernatural element, but not an over the top's the prefect amount! Lucy is after the truth...Boone is just...he is hard to explain. I find myself wishing he was real. He is delightfully handsome, quite, yet not so reserved as you will find out when you read

I've never read a book that didn't fill more boxes than "arc" "read" and "sexy time" but here we are.

Tinfoil Heart is that sweet, feel good book you didn't know you wanted to read, but picked up at the recommendation of a friend (or twenty). Let me be that friend for you now. You want this book. You want to get into this brand of crazy and off-the-wall because it's endearing and sweet and fun.

This book was cute, but it didn't connect with me the way I had hoped it would. I loved the premise and was super excited to read this one, but... I expected... more. It felt underdeveloped with missed opportunities to be really great. The relationship felt rushed and the characters both had reactions and decisions that seemed to come from nowhere. It was frustrating. I never had any of the FEELS I was expecting or wanting, because the character/relationship development and buildup was

Boone has no problem showing his lady some evidence for his arguements, "he’s wearing dark gray boxer briefs and there’s no way to ignore his erection tenting the soft fabric. “In case you were having doubts about me finding you sexy, I think this is proof.” Boone wants to make sure he's doing right by his woman, “I meant the dating business. We’re naked and about to have * **, I hope, but we’re also having a conversation. Should we talk first? I’m not sure how good I am at multi-tasking.” He dr ...more

I've been waiting for the release of Tinfoil Heart forever. Not only because I'm a fan of Daisy Prescott's work but because it is different and perfect in every way.

Humorous, endearing, heartfelt, and romantic, Tinfoil Heart hits all the marks. Boone and Lucy are perfect for one another and there is no other place they could fall in love than surrounded by the unknown and mysteries of the universe.

Happily Mary After
I am completely smitten with Tinfoil Heart. It is such a unique and refreshing romantic comedy that I am still grinning days after reading it. Lucy Halliday moves to Roswell, New Mexico, after her mother dies and leaves her without any living family, and she’s desperately searching for answers to her father’s disappearance 18 years ago. Her mother claimed that he was kidnapped by aliens and did not abandon them, and her aching heart is willing to pursue the outrageous tale in order to either loc ...more

Letting go of the past is a hard thing for us humans. Lucy looks for the father who left years before. Was he abducted by aliens or did he simply walk away and leave his wife and daughter behind?

In searching for the answers to these questions that consume her, Lucy finds her purpose. She finds friends, good, caring people. She finds a home. A place to put down roots. She finds love. Beautiful, sexy, mysterious wonderful love.

The reader travels this journey with Lucy. Along the way we see Lucy’s

Tinfoil Heart is pure joy. Daisy Prescott proves once again that she is a master of romantic comedy. She seamlessly crafts a story that is full of hope and second chances and even adds the possibility of the existence of aliens and makes it all work beautifully! That truly is a gift.

When Lucy heads west after she's lost her Mom, I don't think she even knew what she was looking for. The absent father who suddenly went missing when she was 9 has always been a sad curiosity for her. Her new life in

First of all, you should know I generally don't like stories about aliens, the exceptions to the rule being Roswell, Doctor Who, and early X-Files.

And yet here we are. I effing loved this book.

I read a lot of romance - a LOT of romance. As a result, I read a lot of things that bear a resemblance to one another. Once you get down to it, there's not a whole lot of deviation (this is meant in no offense to romance on the whole - I love it. But let's be real. It can get a little same-y.). But then

I've never been one for conspiracy theories, aliens, Bigfoot or even government cover-ups, although I'm sure those do exists. I'm more practical and have always subscribed to the theory that there is a rational explanation for everything. My husband on the other hand thinks not believing is a boring way to live life. He is all for alien life forms and totally believes that they built the pyramids. He likes to have me watch Ancient Aliens with him on TV in the hope that I'll change my mind. The o ...more

Ohmygooooooooooooodness. Nothing. Nothing could have prepared me for the pure wonder that is Tinfoil Heart. This is a book that is powerfully unique and one you must get your hands on as soon as you possibly can. It is a story about being open to the possibility of anything in face of all manner of doubts, both internal and external. At it’s very beautiful heart, Tinfoil Heart is a love story. A love story that had me had me swooning, laughing and a little teary throughout. Daisy Prescott is an ...more

Tinfoil Heart is strange and funny and swoony. This romantic-comedy is filled with conspiracy theories, a dash of skepticism but a hint of supernatural for true believers, a mysterious, green-eyed love interest named Boone, amazing girl friendships, and so many laugh-out-loud moments.

I adored the main character Lucy. She is sarcastic, prefers her dresses and cardigans to have pockets, and she often talks to herself out loud when she thinks no one is listening. What comes with her feelings of pas

I believe...

I believe that once you read this book you will fall in love with Boone, Lucy & 👽

Author Daisy Prescott brings us a funny, sweet love story that is out of this world, literally.

Enjoyed Lucy journey on finding out what happened to her father. Her determination in finding out the truth comes with some out of this world bumps in the road.

Boone is one of those bumps that Lucy finds out that he may be one bump that she may want to stop for.

After reading all the 5 star reviews on this book I couldn't wait to read it. But I didn't really enjoy it.

The Good:
1) The h was a great character. She was funny and her internal dialogue had me chuckling through most of the book.

2) The H was also a silent and sexy grouch. Once we get to know him better he is very sweet.

3) The town and people of Roswell were entertaining. Just a bunch of crazies with their alien theories.

4) This book was safe.

The not so good:

I think I'm going to have a hard time containing my excitement and love for this book into one review.

Tinfoil Heart is a total departure from what we typically see from Daisy Prescott. And you know what? As a long-time Prescott reader, I have to say that I completely loved this departure, and that Prescott has shown me just how versatile her talent is.

I'll admit right off I fall somewhere comfortably in the middle between skeptic and believer when it comes to aliens. Even still, I couldn't pass up Tinfoil Heart when I saw the cover and read the blurb. I've only read one of Daisy's books previously, but I really enjoyed it. So that combined with the quirky nature of this book made me want to read it all the more. I absolutely adored it, too. Not only did it make me laugh and swoon, it also ga

4 stars. This was a really good, different book! I haven't read a book with this theme before and it felt very fresh and interesting. This is Lucy and Boone's book. Lucy has an interesting past. Her father disappeared when she was a child and her mother was adamant that he was abducted by aliens. She swore that he had not left them and, while Lucy was skeptical, she never knew what really happened to him. Now grown up, after Lucy's mother dies of cancer, Lucy feels alone and at loose ends.

Thank goodness I finally decided it was time to pick up a book by Daisy Prescott. It would have been a shame to miss out on this hilarious and romantic and unexpectedly serious and profound story.

I am obsessed with conspiracy theories. I love them but I’m also not a complete believer of them, I’m somewhere between a believer and skeptic. Well, this book combined my love for weird things (conspiracies/aliens/etc) and my love for a swoon worthy relationship in a perfect littl

An Introspective, Quirky Rom-Com about Finding the Answers to the Unknown

Tinfoil heart is a heartfelt, quirky rom-com about learning to accept love and let go of the past. Ms. Prescott’s books always contain swoon-worthy heroes, unforgettable settings and emotional romances where her characters always learn important life lessons. Tinfoil Heart is no exception. Ms. Prescott’s characters always seem to experience a personal journey where they learn about life and love. It makes her books special.
I don't read many books that fall completely in the 'romance' category. I have been known to dabble in some paranormal romance novels (Hello Black Dagger Brothers) but for some reason I shy away from adult romance novels. I love romance when it plays a sub plot role though in any other novel. I love when two characters fall for each other but the hot sex stuff doesn't do it for me. I figured out not long ago that the reason is because I feel like I know the characters and it feel creepy to me. I ...more

From author Daisy Prescott comes a fresh and heartwarming story of loss, loneliness, and coming to terms with your past.

Lucy is an adult "orphan" who follows her mothers cryptic note to "go West" after passing from breast cancer, effectively making her the only person left in her family. Her father disappeared one night when she was 9, never to be seen or heard from again. Lucy's mom believes he has been abducted by aliens, why else would the love of her life leave her and their daughter? It was

**4.00 Blushes**

Lucy is alone in the world. Her mother has recently died and the last piece of wisdom she gave her daughter was “head west”. You might ask well where is her Dad? Well, Lucy was told and her mom firmly believed he had been kidnapped by aliens. I know. I know! Suspend your disbelief and take this ride with me.

Boone is a local. He’s also oh so handsome! Unfortunately, he has the personality of a brick. Or so Lucy thinks because he never says anything

I have always had a fascination with Roswell. I think most people do a certain extent. The idea that we are not alone in the universe. That there are other forms of intelligent life out there somewhere is both exciting and frightening. I liked Tinfoil Heart because it explores those ideas but on a more tangible level.
Tinfoil Heart is about a woman named Lucy looking for answers. Lucy's mother dies and she is left all alone in the world without any family. Her dad left when she was a little girl

Tinfoil Heart is another slam-dunk from Daisy Prescott! Tinfoil Heart is filled with conspiracy theories, emotion, twists, and lots of swoon moments (*oh BOONE!*). Daisy, of course writes the story in a way that makes you feel like you are in Roswell and included in the community. Daisy’s ability to transport the readers like this is something that I always enjoy about her books, whether it is her Wingmen series, Love in Altitude, or Bewitched.
