Today it is my pleasure to bring you my review of Daisy’s Dilemma by Debbie Viggiano as part of her fabulous book tour!
Daisy is currently living her perfect life, after coming through a particularly difficult breakup with her husband Harry. She runs her own perfect little florist shop, and she is engaged to the wonderful Dominic. Even the fact that he hasn’t yet bought her ring, or that she hasn’t met his mother yet can bring her down. However knowing that her best friend Becky is less than keen on Dominic, and with a few comments making her start to doubt him, is her relationship with Dominic as perfect as she thought? Throw in an ex-husband who is now convinced that he made a mistake leaving her, and a new gorgeous neighbour moving in next door, Daisy’s life has gone from perfect to complicated in seconds!
There are no surprises in this novel but please don’t see that as a bad thing. Sometimes a novel just works for us due to the lack of surprises…it provides comfort and ease of reading! Which is exactly what Debbie Viggiano provides us with in this novel, Daisy’s Dilemma. Daisy and Becky are a great duo – wonderfully different as characters, but they just compliment each other beautifully. Daisy does of course have her rose tinted glasses on when it comes to Dominic which in a novel can sometimes come across as a little annoying – I’m pleased to confirm though that this is not the case in this novel. Instead, it is clear that the pain her ex-husband Harry caused her just makes Daisy want to be loved. She loves Dominic, and so she is a little blinkered when it comes to him. However the arrival of her new neighbour Seth gives her all the feels, and forces her to see the cracks in her relationship with Dominic, even if she doesn’t really want to.
This is a great novel from Debbie Viggiano – it’s a nice easy read that is perfect for those summer days ahead of us. The characters are fun and relatable (I’m a big fan of best friend Becky), and the story is a good one. Naturally we get a nice dose of romance thrown in, but rather than all-encompassing romance, it’s more of a sweet slow burner. I really enjoyed this novel, and I am more than happy to recommend it to you all. So please, go and grab yourself a copy!
Thank you to Debbie Viggiano and Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to be a part of this blog tour, and for providing me with a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
