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.
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.

Twenty-eight-year-old Nina lives a quiet, unassuming life, happy (ish) with her job, maybe not quite as happy with her non-existent love-life (but no one can have everything, right?) and content to trundle along with her nice, predictable daily routine.
That is, until Nina is persuaded to accompany her octogenarian grandmother on a beach holiday to Turkey. Nina envisages sedate walks along the promenade, afternoon naps by the pool, and bingo in the evening.
What she actually gets is too much vodka, adult games of “pin the tail on the donkey” and dancing on a bar whilst flaunting her knickers – and that’s just her gran!
After reading Lilac’s previous novel Under the cherry tree I was so excited about being asked to read and review her next book. This one was so funny, I got funny looks whilst reading this one on the bus. Nina is the main character but I have to say her gran is absolutely hilarious. Nina takes her gran on holiday with her and some of the things they get up to… so funny. Lilac Mills is certainly an author I want to read more of in the future.

“My dog didn’t like men. Actually that was a lie – she didn’t like the men I chose. The only ones who rocked her world had been my father (who was no longer with us), Ross (who was gay), and the butcher on the high street (for obvious reasons).”
When Jenni Meadows has the opportunity to expand her dog-grooming business she takes it, and when a nice man appears on her horizon but fails to make any sparks fly, she decides she has enough on her plate with her business without adding a boyfriend into the mix.
Besides, Millie doesn’t like him and when her dog doesn’t like a man, Jenni knows all about it. So why does Millie take a very strange liking to the new vet, especially since he has a taciturn expression, wears a wedding ring, and wields a needle?
Under the Cherry Tree is a tale of love and hope, waggy tails, and cold noses.
I was excited to get an advanced copy of this book as the cover looks really summery and pretty and it sounded like a perfect escape read. The characters are all brilliant and I particularly liked Jennie as she is a very determined woman who has set up her own dog grooming business. There is a hot male vet, dogs, love and hope in this wonderfully told tale and there maybe a few tears along the way.
