Struggling to find the perfect Christmas gift? Step into Romantic Daze …
Daisy Kirk is a sucker for a love story, which is why she opened up her gift shop – because there’s nothing that makes Daisy happier than when she’s helped a customer achieve their own ‘happily ever after’ by finding the perfect Christmas gift for their loved one. And she absolutely does not just sell ‘soppy presents and frilly pants’ as her brother’s infuriating best friend, Eli, is so fond of suggesting.
The sad fact is that whilst Daisy is helping others with their love lives, hers is non-existent. But when unusual circumstances take Daisy and Eli on a road trip from London to rural Wales, will she finally get the happily ever after to her own Christmas love story?
Book 1 in series, prequel to Daisy’s Summer Mission.

Daisy and her brother Ben have been friends with Eli since childhood. Daisy runs a gift shop, is an utter romantic and hopelessly in love with Eli, hopeless because he’s a love-em and leave-em type. When Ben suddenly goes missing, Daisy and Eli follow clues from London to the west of Wales in an attempt to locate Ben and bring him safely home.
What follows is Eli and Daisy’s mad cap chase when they join forces to find Ben, just for once they have to stop arguing.
Lighthearted, heartwarming and full of witty dialog.
This book revolves round Daisy, who believes in love and runs a romantic shop from her home, providing specialist presents for a select clientele, and her very long attachment to her twin brother’s best friend, commitmentphobe Eli. I enjoyed the story, it had some interesting tweaks, and was happy to keep reading till I finished the book. A pleasant read to enjoy by the fire with the feet up.
Thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Daisy is a genuinely lovely person who wants to help other people, including her twin Ben. So why does she constantly clash with Ben’s best friend, Eli? Could there be more to it than meets the eye? Can Daisy and Eli put their differences aside when Ben disappears? Throw the sexy Taylor and madcap best friend Lily into the mix and you have a great and fun story! Highly recommend!
This is a gorgeous story. Daisy is the queen of romance with her shop and is waiting for her own perfect romance to happen. Together with her best friend Lily they enter a massive adventure. The relationship between the main characters is wonderful and so well written. You are desperate to turn the pages to see what happens next. There is romance in bucket loads, friendship and family love woven together with espionage and a kidnapping! Loved it all.
Daisy’s gift shop is the perfect place to get a special gift for the person in everyone’s life, except her own. Her love life is non-existent apart from her crush on her brother’s friend Eli. Whenever they’re together they argue, and sparks fly, but when Daisy’s brother goes missing, can they put their differences behind them long enough to find him. Hannah’s book is full of fascinating characters, this isn’t a straightforward romantic novel, there’s far more to it than that. It wasn’t at all what I expected, but I was completely hooked from page one.
A super mix of romance, Christmas, unrequited love, family tension, road trips, and spying! All wrapped up in a festive tale to warm your heart and make you feel toasty inside.
