Daisy's Back in Town - Rachel Gibson

this was such a sweet, heart-warming romance! the best thing about gibson's novels is how she transforms the simplest of stories into something absolutely magical.

 

daisy, steven, and jack have been best friends since second grade. right after graduating from high school, daisy married steven and they moved out of town. now steven's dead and daisy's back in town, with something huge to tell jack.

 

the main romance is between jack and daisy, who were sweethearts before steven married her. it starts out with jack wanting nothing to do with the girl who broke his heart and ran off with his best friend, and daisy refusing to leave him alone, to the fire between them reigniting, to jack hating daisy all over again when he finds out the truth about what happened 15 years ago, to their very well-deserved happy-ever-after.

 

i really liked daisy in the beginning, even knowing what she'd kept from jack. but once jack finds out and we get to hear how he feels about everything, i got angry with daisy on his behalf. eventually though, as jack learns to accept the past and finally let go of his anger and sadness, i got over it too. i was cheering for these two throughout, and the ending was just perfect.

 

now, onto book 2. :)

Daisy's Back In Town - Rachel Gibson $1.99 on Amazon. Lately with my insomnia I've been reading a lot of trashy Harlequins and contemporaries. I'll probably do a massive post on them after the bar. Somehow bad cheese works for me at this point in my life. That's sort of sad.This one isn't horrible. Terribly predictable. And there are some eye rolling moments.

Daisy's Back in Town - Rachel Gibson Summary:
Daisy, Jackson and Steven grew up together in Lovett, Texas. They were the best of friends growing up, until.. Once summer Daisy came back from visiting relatives looking all grown up and the most beautiful thing they have ever seen. Immediately Jackson and Steven noticed the change and all of the sudden Daisy was a potential wedge between the two friends. They made a pact that neither one of them would peruse Daisy, but Daisy was having none of that when she set her sights on Jackson. For months Jackson and Daisy carried on behind Steven’s back. Their affair was a fire; it was hot and out of control. The passion was fiery and the jealously was intense. The rollercoaster relationship was scary for both Daisy and Jackson who did not know how to handle their intense feelings. When tragedy struck Jackson’s family he felt like he was drowning and told Daisy he needed space. Daisy received some disturbing news of her own. Scared out of her mind Daisy went to Steven and he suggested they get married and she go to Washington State with him. Not knowing what else to do, she agrees.

15 years later Steven has passed away after a long hard battle with cancer. Daisy has returned to Lovett, with a letter for Jackson and news that she has been avoiding telling him for 15 years. Now if only she can get Jackson alone for a minute so she can do what she has come to Lovett to do. Jackson is having none of Daisy! She blew his whole world apart when she ran off with his best friend 15 years ago just days after both of his parents were killed. That was a wound that he thought was closed up, but with Daisy’s return he realized that Daisy and Steven’s betrayal cut deeper than he thought and even worse whenever Daisy is around the fire still burns hotly enough to scorch these two…

Review:
As per usual Rachel Gibson shines with this book. I have read this book several times. Jackson is actually one of my favorite males from all of Gibson’s novels. He is a good old boy, who is tall, gorgeous and restores vintage American cars. And drives a Shelby! I have a secret weakness (well I guess it’s not a secret anymore) when it comes to classic muscle car! And it’s even worse with Mustangs. I still remember watching "Gone in 60 Seconds" and Eleanor! There is this one scene with Jackson, Daisy and a custom Lancer, and that’s all I’m saying! Daisy seems a little cowardly but she seems to find her backbone by the end. However, if I had the history that she has with Jackson, I don’t think I would have been all that forthcoming either and would drag my feet. It’s one of the things I like about R. Gibson, her characters are believable, and they have faults and insecurities just like real people. I think that’s one of the reasons a reader can relate so well to the characters of any of R. Gibson’s books. As with all R. Gibson’s books there is her trademark humor present. When you least expect it, she’ll throw in a one liner or some smart a$$ comment and there you are laughing. And her secondary characters are no slouches either; they have their own personalities and hold their own. In this novel some honorable mentions have to go to Daisy’s mom and sister, they are also quite funny and eccentric. This is a must read from R. Gibson’s collection.

What I don’t like: The only problem I have with R. Gibson’s writing is that we only get one book a year! That’s just not enough! I mean can we work out a once every 6 months, or even every 9 months?!?! I mean I need my fix!!

Daisy's Back In Town - Rachel Gibson Once Daisy told Jack that the timing was wrong for her to tell him that she was marrying his best friend (the same damn week he buried his parents) I knew she was on my shit list. She didn't even come off remorseful at all. Unless someone tells me the chick starts begging and hard, I'm not continuing this. She is spending too much time thinking of Steven and no time begging Jack. Not going good for me!

Daisy's Back In Town - Rachel Gibson I have only read a few books by Rachel Gibson and have yet to find one I didn't like! I loved this story and the side story with Daisy's sister 'Crazy Lily'!
