Daisy does it Herself by Gracie Player


Sometimes, the Last Place You Intended to Go is Exactly Where You Need to Be.

When 26-year-old Daisy’s life in London comes crashing down around her, the only thing she can think of is getting away – far away. That’s how she found herself stumbling off a train in England’s picturesque Peak District – 150 miles from home, with no idea why she’d gone there and even less idea how she intended to get home.

As Daisy explores the gorgeous village of Upper Finlay, she glimpses the possibility of a different life. The Derbyshire Dales offer up new friends, new opportunities, and a distractingly dishy object of attraction in the form of local bookstore owner Alex (and his bumbling Great Dane.) When Daisy discovers Alex’s business is in trouble she steps in to save the day.

But London’s Calling – literally. The life Daisy ran away from is calling her back. Why then, is she so reluctant to heed its call? Daisy’s got a decision to make: Will she play it safe, and return to what she knew? Or is she brave enough to take a leap of faith and create a bold, new life for herself in the last place she’d ever expected?

Daisy Does it Herself is a sweet, uplifting romantic comedy about the power of self-confidence, friendship and of course love! Fans of warm and witty romantic comedies with a guaranteed happily-ever-after will be entranced.

I really loved this, it was a cute, quick and adorable story. In fact I was sad when it ended because I wanted more of Daisy and Alex. In fact Gracie wrote a whole cast of characters I’d love to see in future books. Her writing is so lovely, it’s like talking to a friend you’ve known forever.

Cece, Rosie, Liam, Jim were all wonderful characters. I loved Upper Finlay so much, the charity shop, the quirky villagers it was such a gorgeous little community that I wanted to be a part of it myself. I loved the relationship between Daisy and her mum (because of how it ended but no spoilers)

The only criticism I have is that it ended far too soon for me, I would have loved another couple of chapters, but that’s just me I always want more from great stories. I really do hope Gracie returns to these characters in one way or another because I’d definitely buy it and be up for more.
