Staying at Daisy’s, by Jill Mansell. Daisy, glad that her spritzer was nine-tenths soda water, eased herself onto a bar stool while her father greeted a couple of late arrivals as though they were his dearest friends.

Staying at Daisy’s, by Jill Mansell. At last! How marvelous! Listen, we’re in danger of having a bit of a knees-up-either of you two handy with a piano?’ One of the Australians materialized at Daisy’s side as she was busily lining her empty stomach with cashews and roasted almonds. Not ideal but better than nothing. Your dad’s a character.

Watch out for mad dogs. ey passed the cottage where Bert Connelly lived with his wife, hulking great sons, and beloved pit bull terriers. OK, this’ll do,’ said Josh as they reached the next gateway. Stop, reverse into it, and try not to hit the gatepost. Thoughts of Dominic were interfering with Tara’s coordination; she was too excited to avoid making a pig’s ear of the maneuver

Talk about Staying at Daisy's

Daisy's husband dies in a car accident he was in with his mistress, devestating Daisy. A year later we meet up with Daisy again as she's managing her father's hotel. her faith in men ruined, she'e spent the past year concentrating on her job. And she's been perfectly one day, but that can change as a potential new man enters her life that she becomes increasingly attracted to. Falling in love can be dangerous and have the chance to break her heart yet again so does she decide to let down her guard and let it happen or will she try to keep up walls around her heart for her protection.

There are several romances in bloom over the course of this book. The most touching for me happens between Barney who gets a job at the Manor and ends up in a romance with Mel, who ends up having been the mistress of Daisy's late husband. I really got sucked into their story and ended up really rooting for them. In fact over the course of the book there were many characters to like.

The whole book is quite funny but what was funniest for me in the book was the poor character who was just trying to get her washing machine fixed. Repair man after repair man is sent in and she gets fed up with the manufacturer of said washing machine. Finally she takes matters into her own hands and I was practically rolling on the floor laughing at how she finally took matters into her own hands.

After being able to read this one and Millie's Fling for free I've since bought several other of her books as well. So far I've not been disapppointed with one yet and will likely buy the few I don't have yet in the future.
Staying at Daisy's by Jill Mansell was such a fun romp with a pile of funny and eccentric characters! Jill Mansell is fast becoming a favorite author of mine and reading her books is always a delight! This is one romantic comedy that will have you flipping those pages to see what comes next - it's funny and yet has that little bit of a serious tinge to it as well!

Daisy is the manager of a beautiful country hotel called Colworth Manor which is owned by her father Hector. Since losing her husband Steven in a car accident with non other than his mistress Daisy has sworn off men, especially the good looking ones who can charm your pants off. They are never anything but trouble.

So, when at a wedding being hosted at her hotel, she happens to meet the more than obnoxious Dev while defending her best friend Tara, she is more than determined to steer clear of him - he is much too handsome and sexy for his own good and hers. Even worse he is sticking up for his lousy mate Dominic who is getting married there and who just happened to make a play for chambermaid Tara. Now Tara does know him though, he used to be an ex-boyfriend of hers. Still when she's caught with Dominic by the bride's sister, she's deeply offended that she's being blamed for the whole sodden mess!

Dev doesn't give up so easily though and keeps showing up and getting on Daisy's nerves. Yet when he takes her to help him buy a dog, she can't help but see another side to him. She picks out Clarissa for him even though he specifically said he wanted a big and burly dog much like himself. Yet, he does end up going home with Clarissa and of course falls in love with her. Later he shows up again at Daisy's hotel booking in for a few weeks while his place is being renovated because of a water leak. While Daisy is currently seeing her ex-boyfriend Josh, she still can't help but feel butterflies whenever Dev is around. Well, she'll just have to make more of an effort to avoid him, won't she? It's just that maybe that isn't really what she wants or is it?

Staying at Daisy's is full of quirky characters. I've barely skimmed the surface. While Daisy and the dog Clarissa were my favorite characters, Tara was hilarious. She's so unlucky in love and every step she takes in any direction just seems to end in more laughs. Daisy's father Hector is someone who is larger than life and thrives on it - he's also having an affair with a village local while pretending to himself that it means nothing. There is also Tara's aunt Maggie who was fantastic - when she has problems with her washing machine, she takes her anger to a whole new level. Then there's Barney who has to be the world's last sweetest guy - you just want to give him a big ole hug!

Nothing really earth shattering happens in this novel yet you will never find a boring moment. It's all about people finding love and living their lives and you will find yourself completely captivated by the cast of characters and the beautiful country manor and area. I felt like I knew all of these people and cared about them before I was even a quarter of a way into the novel and I've found that with all of Jill Mansell's books that I've read. She has a knack for making you feel a part of her character's lives as well as letting you sit back and imagine that you're enjoying yourself in the English countryside. As the story evolves Daisy is faced with the biggest surprise of all and yet it is this that gives her the push to finally take the biggest risk of all and open herself up to love again.

If you're in the mood for a fun and fabulous read, then I'd say Staying at Daisy's would be a great pick as would most of Jill Mansell's books. If you enjoy British authors as I do and all their funny and quirky sayings, then you'll love this reading this story.
Witty and entertaining with a cast of great characters. Unlike other Jill Mansell novels however, I never liked the male character paired up for Daisy. He was a sort of douche from the start and never really proved to be anything more worthwhile. I almost wished that Daisy just ended up on her own, emotionally stronger, without needing a romantic happy ending. Other than that, the rest was good.
Staying at Daisy's follows the story of Daisy MacLean as she deals with the aftermath of her cheating husband's death and manages her family's beautiful, country hotel. Like all of Mansell's books, Daisy's family, friends, acquaintances, and love interests intertwine as she heals from her past and learns to take a chance and trust again.

Staying at Daisy's is the fourth book I've read by Jill Mansell, and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. What I love most about her novels is not necessarily the lighthearted, witty humor, but her ability to intertwine the lives of so many supporting characters. I admit at first, her style takes a bit to get used to - initially, I wanted a score card to keep track of who's who - but once you adapt, it's obvious that the long cast of characters only enhance her stories.
Staying at Daisy's was one of the first Jill Mansell books that I ever read. I absolutely fell in love with the way that she could so create such unique and fun characters. Her ability to pull the reader in is what really makes her one of the top authors I've ever read.

In "Staying at Daisy's" we meet Daisy who works at her father's hotel. Her father who is a bit of an eccentric personality, is really quite fun. Things start to go astray when a wedding "goes wrong" and one of her employees gets caught in the middle.

Daisy and the "best man" are at odds, but somehow he becomes immersed in Daisy's life after their chance meeting. Daisy, who has recently lost her husband, isn't too keen on starting a new relationship. There are tons of wildly overlapping storylines here. IT's a wonderfully chaotic book that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat! It's non-stop fun!
