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!
I’m obsessed with Christmas Hallmark movies, and I was really excited to give this book a read! A Christmas novel? Heck yeah!
A Very Lucky Christmas is a fun, easy read that I actually sat down and read all at once. Once I got into the story, it was hard to put it down!
Daisy is having a rough time between her boyfriend, family and job. Honestly, the first part of this book is pretty depressing. Nothing is going Daisy’s way, and it just seems like it’s all piling up on her.
There were a lot of times I kept thinking, “Seriously? Her life has to get better!”
Her family is so loud and feisty and I really felt for Daisy dealing with a lot of her family dynamic. Her brother is the favorite in the family and that doesn’t help Daisy’s self esteem at all. I giggled a lot at Daisy’s descriptions of her family members, especially her perspective of her sister in law.
The character interactions were hilariously awkward (and I don’t mean badly written, I just mean entertaining in a good way). There were quite a few times I found myself literally laughing out loud at their misunderstood conversations.
Things wrap up nicely at the end, although I do wish the ending had been just a bit more fleshed out; mainly because I wanted more romance!
All in all, A Very Lucky Christmas by Lilac Mills is a wonderful seasonal read and I definitely recommend it!
