Daisy MacLean runs the country house hotel owned by her flamboyant father, Hector. When she hears who's about to get married there, she isn't worried at all - her friend Tara absolutely promises there won't be any trouble between her and ex-boyfriend Dominic, whom she hasn't seen for years. But Dominic has other ideas... Meanwhile, Hector's getting up to all sorts with...well, that's the village's best kept secret. And then Barney turns up, with a little something belonging to the husband Daisy's been doing her best to forget. That's the thing about hotels, you never know who you're going to meet. Or whether they're going to stay..
This was my second Jill Mansell book and again I felt like I was surrounded by friends that I've known for a lifetime. I loved all of the quirky characters in this book and also enjoyed the twist to the story that ends up making Daisy comes to terms with many things in her life.
Recommend? I would recommend this one to my friends because it was a fun and comfy read. Nothing earth shattering happens but it was a solid story with great characters that made me want to check into Daisy's hotel if and when I ever get to England before I die!!
Rating: 7/10 (I've decided to go to the 10 point scale as it gives me more room to judge a book rather than 1-5)
