I only bought 'Dating Daisy' as a research project, as I have just published a similar book: 'Back On The Shelf' by Mary Hadow, and was curious to check out the competition! I read about Daisy's book in the hairdressers, over a coffee and a copy of 'Woman and Home'. I am most impressed by her excellent PR!
Upon receiving my copy, despite the magazine's fulsome write-up I was astonished to discover that the book is clearly vanity published (if that's the right expression, and as is mine) and, in my opinion, not done very well at all. The font is tiny and there are far too many words crammed onto every page. There's too much copy on the back cover, and, at over 400 pages, divided into about a million chapters, the book is very daunting to start. I nearly didn't. And, because it's so long, it's expensive, too.
There are typo's on almost every page, and I agree with other reviewers that the endless use of the 'And here's the thing' phrase is annoying; and that the sexual health stories, though highly entertaining in their own right, don't belong to the thread of Daisy's story (which I don't believe for a moment is fiction, except possibly the sudden surprise existence of perfect Edward). I found Daisy being referred to in the third person, and talking about her mates as 'amigos', irritating too.
Having said all of the above, Dating Daisy is the first book that I've thoroughly enjoyed for years! I found myself looking forward to going to bed with her every night, for a jolly good chat. I even found myself having to read the last bit in the morning before getting on with the rest of my day - something I would never normally do. And now I've finished the book, I miss her! I have been searching for an engrossing chick-lit book for months and months, and, at last - here we are! I would very much like to swap experiences with the real Daisy in real life, and hope we might meet one day.
I think she should be proud enough of her book to write it under her true name, and I think she should try and get it properly published and professionally edited. It needs tidying up and presenting in a more user-friendly way. Perhaps Daisy should turn it into two books - one on dating, and the second one called 'Diary of a Sexual Health Worker' because, writing as someone who devours this kind of thing, I think 'Daisy's worth it'!
Good luck Daisy Mae! I do hope you're still happily loved-up,and that your great big re-vamped house is still in one piece! You could try one of my other books: "Dare B&B" if you're feeling short of pennies. Imogen could make the breakfasts!
Can we get together? xx
She had to learn to describe herself in ways that would attract the opposite sex, yet not promise too much. You had to commiserate with her as she searched for the right words.
Would this description turn the right man off?
She had to learn to look at the ways men described themselves, then figure out that some of the men had "oversold" themselves in order to entice an attractive lady.
Daisy realized she was unprepared for the experience of on-line dating, and so were most of the men she met. After all, they were all looking for the same thing: someone to care for them. Most of them were looking for long term relationships, and it was amusing to see the ways they went about it.
The ups and downs of their online courting are very entertaining. Sometimes you find yourself laughing, other times needing a tissue. You sometimes cringe and other times fear for the consequences. Daisy keeps you guessing at the outcome right up to the end.
A good read served up by a good writer.
When I recommended it to a friend who is thinking of internet dating, she read it in about 2 days flat and then text me saying "I want to meet Daisy Mae to tell her what a fantastic job she has done writing that book! I have told all my friends to read it."
