Staying at Daisy's from Sunday Times best-selling author Jill Mansell is essential reading if you love the novels of Cathy Kelly and Milly Johnson.
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....

I loved this book, some of the best narration I've heard and a story that's very easy to relax and sink into every time you pick up audible. A soothing read; very predictable but wonderfully enjoyable.
I loved it! The narrator was excellent, in fact she was brilliant, so many different accents. The story held my interest all the way through with its twists
and turns . I will certainly be listening to another book by Jill Mansell and books narratored by Penelope Freeman.
"Lots going on!"
I loved this one as well, the second Jill Mansell I have read. Lots of twists and turns. Great ending.
Absolutely brilliant from start to finish . Penelope Freeman is wonderful . My favourite read in a long time .
The narrator was superb, the accents were fantastic and I could not put it down
Fantastic feel good book and laughed out loud at parts
Well done to narrator
Probably not! The book is not one of Jill Mansell's best! Its story was quite boring in parts and i struggled to connect with, or even like, most of the characters within it.
The ending was alright - but a little expected.
The performance of the book did get quite irritating after a while. The voices for each character were far too dramatic and sounded too similar to one another that i lost track half way through!
Overall, the audio was okay for a listen - but don't expect anything amazing.
"A right dogs dinner"
How is it that human relationships can get so messy because of lack of communication? Almost in the league of a Brian Rix farse this story dragged slightly but earned its 4* award because of the clever dialogue, good reading and easy entertainment. Up with the high standard of most of her books this is stress free listening and worth the time taken to hear the story out.
A cute easy listener with some predictable events but surprising twists in the mix!! Great!!
"light and fun hearted listen"
fantastic book loved the story could relate to Tara and her antics!!would listen again!loved the narrator she was great at injecting the characters personalities into the text x
narrator was great
the story was good but many be too many character plot lines some lacked development
