This title will be released on 29th September

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.

My Thoughts:

You may think it is too early for a Christmas read but think not. It is not too long now till Christmas so what better way to get started than to start reading a festive book. I am a big fan of Lilac Mills and I think everyone should read her books. This read made me want to curl up and forget my daily woes. I loved Daisy, I could definitely see myself in her and I loved her great grandmother and her traditions. It made me start thinking about Christmas and my family. A lovely read.

I received a advanced copy of this book for an honest review.

The Holiday Swap By Zara Stoneley

The Holiday Swap By Zara Stoneley

Two women, two very different lives – one perfect solution to escape festive heartbreak!

Tucked away in the idyllic English countryside, Daisy Fischer’s cosy little cottage has always been her safe haven. But when her completely dependable boyfriend issues her an ultimatum, Daisy realises there’s a whole world out there she’s missing out on.

Florence Cortes’s life couldn’t be better – gorgeous apartment right on the beach, fabulous job and dreamy boyfriend, or so she thought. Suddenly, Flo’s life isn’t so perfect after all.

When the girls house swap for the holidays, it’s not long before Daisy is being distracted by sun, sea and sexy Javier while Flo finds herself snowbound for Christmas with only handsome neighbour Hugo and a house full of animals to keep her company.

Love actually does seem to be all around this Christmas, but in the places Flo and Daisy least expect to find it…

My Thoughts:

I am a big fan of the Tippermere series, you can read this as a standalone but to find out about the characters I would recommend reading them all.  In this story we get two very different locations, the busy streets of Barcelona and the slow paced way of life in Cheshire, they are bought together for a fantastic Christmas treat.I really liked Daisy as she is kind of like me in a way. Flo seems lovely too. I liked the idea behind this story for both women to swap homes, they both go on an incredible journey and see what really matters to them and have a little romance too. I wonder if there will be another book? A fabulous festive read.

“Her time is running out. How can Daisy ensure that Jack will live happily ever after? On the eve of what was supposed to be a triumphant ‘Cancerversary’ with her husband Jack to celebrate three years of good health, Daisy suffers a devastating blow: her doctor tells her that the cancer is back, but this time it’s unstoppable. Death is a frightening prospect – but not because she’s afraid for herself.

She’s terrified of what will happen to her brilliant but charmingly helpless husband when she’s no longer there to take care of him. It’s this fear that keeps her up at night, until she stumbles on the solution: she has to find him another wife. With a singular determination, Daisy searches for Jack’s perfect match.

But as the thought of her husband with another woman becomes all too real, Daisy is forced to decide what’s more important in the short amount of time she has left: her husband’s happiness – or her own?”

My Thoughts:

I want to say a big thank you to Lovereading for letting me review this book. It is always hard to read a book that has someone in it that has cancer, it is hard when you know someone that has been through it whether they are still here or not. To be honest speaking from personal experiences as I lost someone who was battling cancer. I wasn’t too sure if I would like this book or not I did  find some of it hard to read and I did have a little cry, remembering certain things. I like the way this story was written as I haven’t before read a story about the actual person’s way of coping with the disease. This is a story that really makes you appreciate life and really makes you think. I think this book will stay with me for life.
