Easy, breezy read

I recently finished another great book by one of my favorite authors, Jill Mansell. All of her books are lighthearted, easy reads, and make a great companion for travel on a plane or for a day at the pool or beach. Each and every book is perfectly British and the main characters are all fun, quirky and charming. You can't go wrong with names like Millie, Poppy or Cleo!  

Staying at Daisy's

Plot: "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..."

Check it out and soon it'll have you unintentionally taking on a British persona too :)

That sounds so cute! After my love for British Becky Bloomwood in the Shopaholic series I'm up for more Brit characters!
