It’s a pleasure to be kicking off the blog tour for and a Sixpence for Luck this is a wonderful festive RomCom that will warm you through as you read, check out my review below. Huge thanks to Lilac Mills and Jenny from Neverland Blog Tours for having me on the tour.
Daisy Jones has hit rock bottom. Or so she believes.
A cheating boyfriend, trouble at work, having to move back in with her mother, and being forced to compare her brother’s loved-up, newly-wed status and brand-new shiny house with her own dire lack of prospects, isn’t what she imagined her life was going to be like at thirty. To top it all off, Christmas is just around the corner!
Daisy, bless her, thinks things can’t possibly get any worse, but when her ancient great-grandmother persuades her to plant a silver sixpence in the Christmas pud for luck, Daisy is about to discover that they most definitely can.
Daisy thinks she has it all with Freddie, the job, the house, she’s waiting for the proposal then the kids. Except she finds out in the most unfortunate way that Freddie is cheating on her, then she loses her job and she ends up back with her family all on top of Christmas. When a series of unfortunate mishaps see her in A&E under the care of a rather good-looking Doctor Hartley she thinks things might be looking up.
This is one of the funniest books I’ve read in a while, but the comedy doesn’t detract from the wonderful tone of the story. As Daisy navigates the disaster of her life and tries to fix things. Her family who are a laugh a minute interfere, also known as trying to help, she works hard to find a new path for herself which will make her happy.
I loved reading about the journey Daisy makes through this story, how she discovers herself, finds new love and a future. As someone who shies away from festive reads, this was the perfect festive pick and I thoroughly enjoyed every single second of it.
Sending huge thanks to Lilac Mills and Neverland Blog Tours for the eARC so that I could read and honestly review this novel.
About Lilac Mills
Lilac spends all her time writing, or reading, or thinking about writing or reading, often to the detriment of her day job, her family, and the housework. She apologises to her employer and her loved ones, but the house will simply have to deal with it!
She calls Worcester home, though she would prefer to call somewhere hot and sunny home, somewhere with a beach and cocktails and endless opportunities for snoozing in the sun…
When she isn’t hunched over a computer or dreaming about foreign shores, she enjoys creating strange, inedible dishes in the kitchen, accusing her daughter of stealing (she meant to say “borrowing”) her clothes and fighting with her husband over whose turn it is to empty the dishwasher.
