Single and Looking Daisy: A Funny Laugh Out Loud Feel Good Summer Read
Single and Looking Daisy: A Funny Laugh Out Loud Feel Good Summer Read - Belinda Austin

Secret Lives of Sisters, Book 1

I Picked Up This Book Because: Author’s description in my Netgalley group on Goodreads

The Characters:

Daisy:
Shakespeare the cat:
David

The Story:

For me this did not live up to the hype of the title. I could see where the author was trying to be funny but it just wasn’t my kind of humor. It struck me as Broad City humor which I just don’t like.

I found Daisy to mostly be a hot mess. Her easy acceptance of her cat talking to her leads me to believe she is mentally unstable and I drew the line at the stalker like behavior of neighbor David. Daisy should run far far away from Mr. “I just want to watch you eat” and “sip slower” #HeebieJeebies

The Random Thoughts:

*DNF so no rating

A new house
Black Ship (Daisy Dalrymple, #17) - Carola Dunn

and new problems.

 

This follows the usual Daisy Dalrymple trope, Daisy does something and she finds a body, only this time it's the maid and the dog who find the body (which leads to a few entertaining moments with Daisy telling people it wasn't her, honest and their not believing her.. She has to admit that she has form.

 

There's a return visit from Agent Lambert, prohibition era illegal exports of alcohol and a bevy of new neighbours that Daisy has to get to know.  There are also some reflections of the Irish War of Independence which would have been pretty fresh in people's minds - a later book is set in 1926 and the Irish War of Independence finished up in about 1922, and their are questions about one of the characters being an IRA sympathiser, which they weren't and Daisy does point this out regularly.

 

It's interesting to see Daisy and Alex settle into a different life and deal with some wealth.  I'm looking forward to seeing how this will change their lives, lets hope the gift horse doesn't bite any harder.

Daisy Fletcher finds a body in the Tower
Bloody Tower (A Daisy Dalrymple Mystery) - Carola Dunn

Like her surname-sake Jessica, Daisy goes somewhere and there's a body. This time she's at the Tower of London by request of her editor and she stays there to see the key ceremony. She wakes early and really wants to go home to her twins but on her way out she finds a body (quelle surprise). Of course her husband is assigned to investigate, but he has to deal with Tower politics as well as multiplying motives and suspects. It also has a few glimpses into the aftereffects of World War I and the impact it ohad on the soldiers.

Relatively predictable but entertaining.

Up to You (Love with Altitude, #4) by Daisy Prescott
Up to You - Daisy Prescott

 

Their reputation precedes them. Will they live down the rumors, while battling matchmaking mamas? Mae and Landon have nothing in common. His playboy ways and her persnickity attitude spell trouble for anyone who steps in their path. When circumstance keeps pushing them together, they'll find out they never knew each other at all. Prescott brings on the charm. Up to You is a humorous delight with a hint of sage advice and heart thrown in for good measure. Get ready for some fun.
