Staying at Daisy's
If you're looking for a hotel where anything can happen, try staying at Daisy's...
Daisy MacLean runs the country house hotel owned by her flamboyant father, Hector. When she hears who's about to get married there, she isn't worried at all - her friend Tara absolutely promises there won't be any trouble between her and ex-boyfriend Dominic, whom she hasn't seen for years....more
Why I Read this Book: Once in a blue moon, I like to read a good chick-lit novel. Way back when (after I had read the Harry Potter series and I was trying to find my reading groove), I dabbled in a bit of click-lit. I’m not a huge fan of the genre so a book really has to grab my attention in order for me to read it. In fact, I have about 10 chick-lit books on my shelf, that have been on my shelf for over 3 years, that are waiting for me to read. When I get in the ...more
JUST SHUT UP. YOU'RE STUPID.
NO MORE PLEASE! YOU DUMB B****
Jill Mansell's books (that I have had the misfortune to read) have so far been an insult to any self-respecting intelligent (or even semi-intelligent) audience. All seem to follow the same premise of ultra chick lit trash. Be prepared to lose brain cells when reading her trite, clichéd rubbish.
The heroine is generally naïve and either unsuccessful in her career or from a disadvantaged background. A ...more
While this book was not particularly bad for a romance novel, it was just the last straw: too many clichés, eye-roll after eye-roll and of course the extremely sweet ever after… I just can’t take it anymore: life’s too short to waste on “fantasies” (pun intended).
Daisy MacLean manages a small hotel owned by her father Hector is a village in England. The hotel is the setting for a wedding that seems to touch off events for the friends, family and employees of Daisy's hotel.
Daisy has been burned before in love and has no interest in best man Dev - mind you he is awfully handsome... And Daisy's best friend and chambermaid Tara just happens ...more
The romances (yes, plural), intrigues, friendship, family… Just name it this book has it all. There were different plots going on at the same time, ...more
Daisy runs the hotel owned by her father, Hector MacLean. And it’s a regular soap opera at Daisy’s and around the village as chambermaids almost stop weddings, old friends come to visit, and washing machines break down.
Will everyone find their “happily ever after”?
The cover is a classic Jill Mansell look. The pretty colored pencil hand-drawn designs that are so feminine. Usually, there’s one element that relates to the story and this time it’s the dog. In our ...more
Staying at Daisy's is a hotel you would want to stay if you want fun and entertainment especially if the owner is anything like Hector, Daisy's dad, who pays for sex with local woman ...more
Staying at Daisy's is another entry in the hot-guest-meets-lonely-innkeeper subgenre. (I don't know if such a subgenre exists, but at least one of Mansell's other books followed the same plot, so she may be ...more
I only feel one demerit. That is, not having enough romance between the main characters. I mean the main characters tell they love each other only during last chapter. I look forward to reading all her books!
Jill Mansell's books have ...more
