*BLOG TOUR* Daisy’s Dilemma – Debbie Viggiano ★★★★★

Blurb; Florist Daisy is loved-up and blossoming. Boyfriend Dominic has proposed marriage!

However, Dominic isn’t in any rush to buy a ring, and meeting the parents is looong overdue. What is the problem? After all, Daisy’s mum has already bought her big hat and wants to know the wedding date!

Then careless words plant seeds of doubt and, like weed, Daisy’s concerns begin to multiply. Is Dominic hiding something?

Meanwhile, sexy ex Harry is back on the scene and begging Daisy for a reconciliation. He thought the grass was greener with HER but now says he made a mistake. Is Harry – for once – being genuine, or simply leading Daisy up the garden path?

New neighbour Seth seems like a fun guy, but a single throwaway comment has Daisy mimicking a species of Calla Lily – Red Alert! It’s time to do some digging. But even she never anticipated a mad car chase across London or unearthing a shocking secret that changes everything.

Sparks are set to fly in this gorgeous romantic comedy about love, trust, and new beginnings.

My Review; Where do I even start with this? I devoured this book in the majority of a day. This was just what I needed… A feel good and laugh out loud funny read. Gave me very similar vibes to Bridget Jones. It had me smiling throughout. Daisy is such a funny character I felt like she was a friend.

She has an ex husband. Her current fiance & the hot new neighbour who’s just moved in. She’s surrounded by men but which way will she go? Who will she choose? I loved how she had conversations with herself throughout and doesn’t mind a good drink or three. Her bestie is heavily involved too helping her run Daisys flower business.

The best part had to be when she went into full spy mode & then the ending ofcourse. Beautiful. I loved it all! Highly recommend. The perfect rom-com. A full five stars from me. This is the first book I have read by this author & I am looking forward to reading more after this. Brilliantly written. Easy to devour. Will remember this story for a long time.

Emil & the Great Escape – Astrid Lindgren ★★★★

Blurb; This is a collection of charming tales about Emil, the brother who doesn’t mean to be bad. It’s just that trouble – and fun – follow him wherever he goes.”

My Review; This is another short children’s read at just over a hundred pages. It is all about a little boy called Emil. Now Emil is a very naughty, mischievous boy. Within this book are three days/three stories of just how naughty Emil really is.

Now I’m a 26 year old adult and even parts of this made me chuckle. So it will be a hit for children. However they may get some cheeky ideas themselves from this book. There is suppose to be a whole series on this little man but this is the only one I have read and it read perfectly fine as a Standalone. A well deserved four stars from me.

The Unhoney Mooners – Christina Lauren ★★★★

Blurb; Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in…well, everything. Her identical twin sister Ami, on the other hand, is probably the luckiest person in the world. Her meet-cute with her fiancé is something out of a romantic comedy (gag) and she’s managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a series of Internet contests (double gag). Worst of all, she’s forcing Olive to spend the day with her sworn enemy, Ethan, who just happens to be the best man.

Olive braces herself to get through 24 hours of wedding hell before she can return to her comfortable, unlucky life. But when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning from eating bad shellfish, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. And now there’s an all-expenses-paid honeymoon in Hawaii up for grabs.

Putting their mutual hatred aside for the sake of a free vacation, Olive and Ethan head for paradise, determined to avoid each other at all costs. But when Olive runs into her future boss, the little white lie she tells him is suddenly at risk to become a whole lot bigger. She and Ethan now have to pretend to be loving newlyweds, and her luck seems worse than ever. But the weird thing is that she doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, she feels kind of… lucky.

My Review; This was one I had to get from the library as I saw so many readers recommending it and I am so pleased I did read it. It had my laughing out loud so many times. I loved it all! Not a bad word to say about it. I literally devoured it. Its perfect chick-lit/romance with some comedy. It really cheered me up.

Olive and Ethan those two what a pair eh. Enemies one minute… ha. Perfect! A sunny get away for 70% of the story to the gorgeous Hawaii. A perfect ending. Utterly adorable for all characters. A must read for me. A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend. A perfect beach read or getaway for your mind. One I will remember for a long time.
