A Very Lucky Christmas - Lilac Mills
Reading Challenge Category: Free ARC from NetGalley
Things can't get worse for Daisy Jones... can they? Christmas is meant to be the happiest time of year so why is absolutely everything going wrong for Daisy? Reeling from a bad breakup, moving back in with her parents and hounded by trouble at work she really shouldn’t be surprised when things go from bad to worse..and she ends up in A&E! Her great-grandmother persuaded her to plant a silver sixpence in the Christmas pud for luck but choking on the coin isn’t the ‘change’ she’d wished for. Yet when dashing Dr Noah Hartley saves the day things finally start to look up. With Christmas Day just around the corner Daisy’s determined to make her own luck...and hopefully bag herself a dishy doc in the process!
This was a brilliant Christmas read! Just the type of book I was after for the week before Christmas. It was full of ups and downs, laughs and tears. It was brilliantly written, and I couldn’t put it down wanting to see if Daisy would get her happy ever after. The characters were so likeable, even Freddie in the end! They weren’t too nice as I hate that, they just seemed like ordinary, relatable people and Daisy was just a bit down on her luck. The only slight grind my teeth moments were the misunderstandings, I was literally screaming ‘use your words’ as they seemed a bit put on for the humour of the book. However, I understand that they were just that ‘humour for the book’ and I was being a little too sensible. Other than that, a true feel good, festive read and I’m looking forward to reading Lilac Mills’ other books now!
