About the Book:
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. But Dominic has other ideas… Meanwhile, Hector’s getting up to all sorts with…well, that’s the village’s best kept secret. And then Barney turns up, with a little something belonging to the husband Daisy’s been doing her best to forget. That’s the thing about hotels, you never know who you’re going to meet. Or whether they’re going to stay…

My Review:
Jill Mansell is new to me, but, from evidence in her writing skills, is definitely NOT new to the world of writing. Her quirky characters, her witty plot line, and her all around fantastic skills, kept me hooked and smiling until the very end.

This chick-lit novel takes us to England, among the fabulous accents and friendly natives. I felt right at home from the start at Daisy’s hotel. I laughed out loud through this fast but fun read. Daisy is a widow, but her marriage seemed to have been over long before the death. Yep. Dear hubby was a two timer! He apparently wanted his cake and to eat it, too. Daisy vowed then to stay away from any players. That is until she meets Dev. Man, was she in for a surprise with him! The two made for great laughs!

Out of all the characters, Hector, Daisy’s dad was my favorite. From page one, his words, antics and obvious love for life just hooked me. He’s a character that should be in ALL books everywhere!

I am forever a Jill Mansell fan. She combines hysterical fun, British charm and entertaining characters, tosses them up and throws her fans an unforgettably hilarious, 4 star chick lit novel. I am highly recommending this to everyone who loves a good laugh now and again. You’ll instantly be hooked and if you’re new to Jill Mansell’s work, like me, you’ll be hunting for more!
