I have now read quite a few of Jill Mansell books, they are very delightful chick-lit, what I love about her books they all have sub plots in them.

Daisy MacLean has just lost her husband in a car crash, but before he died she wanted a divorce as he was a no good husband, he was a liar a cheat and was unfaithful she finds this out after his death. Daisy runs a hotel in Colworth that belongs to her father Hector, who is very flamboyant, who has a secret himself.

Tara is the chambermaid at the hotel and a good friend of Daisy,she is also a good time gal and Tara is found in a compromising position with the groom, at a wedding reception at the hotel who is her ex boyfriend, who is to blame Tara or Dominic? Tara has to grovel to Dominic wife to be, to make sure that Annabel will still marry Dominic, after all the trouble this compromising position has caused.

Barney writes a letter to Daisy, thanking her for the kidney that he receives from her dead husband, he turns up at the hotel to meet her, and sees a job being advertised as a porter, applies for the job and immediately he is employed at the hotel, and falls quickly in love with Mel and her son, and she also has secrets of her own.

Maggie is Tara Aunt, and Tara lives with her, but Maggie has also secrets of her own which has been going on for 2 years.

Going back to Daisy, she meets the best man Dev at the wedding who is gorgeous and a former professional rugby player, he falls for Daisy as soon as he meets her, but Daisy tries not to get involved as she feels that he is no better than her husband was. Josh comes back on the scene who is an ex boyfriend of Daisy, and she feels safe with him, who does Daisy end up with Josh or Dev? You will also meet the lovely Clarissa.

Staying at Daisy's is the latest in a string of delightful books by Jill Mansell. Mansell's forte is writing funny, charming stories that admittedly aren't deeply profound - but they aren't mindless and characterless pabulum either. Staying at Daisy's is about a woman who manages the country hotel owned by her totally irresponsible father, Hector. At the start of the novel, Daisy finds out that her husband is not what he seems to be on many levels, and throughout the story she's painfully reminded of what a jerk he really was. Her story is about learning to trust enough to take a big risk again. But along the way, we're treated to several lovely sub-plots (another one of Mansell's very strong points) involving Hector, an aging singing star, Tara the hapless chambermaid, a porter (who despite his devotion to Daisy, unwittingly brings her much pain), Daisy's goofy and lovable boyfriend, Tara's sweet (but definitely not prim and proper!) aunt Maggie, just to name a few. Oh, yeah - let's not forget Dev, the gorgeous and self-assured former rugby player turned management consultant who's out to prove to Daisy that she deserves more than goofy & lovable (and safe) in a man. Throw in a mutt of a dog, a baby, a philandering newlywed groom with a wife that turns out to be a bit of a surprise - well, you've got an entertaining and fast-paced story that you won't want to put down. In the end, everyone gets what they deserve - including the reader!

The marvelously fun action in this Mansell novel takes place in a Cotswolds country house hotel near Bristol and Bath. The colourful cast of characters includes Daisy, the beautiful, smart heroine who manages the hotel; her flamboyant father Hector, who owns the hotel; Maggie, the middle-aged village spinster who has hidden depths; Mel, the "other woman" in Daisy's disastrous marriage; and Dev, the former rugby hero turned management consultant who must convince a sceptical Daisy that not all men are liars and cheats. And then there's Clarissa, but that'd be telling ... Give yourself a treat; read this book!

Staying at Daisy's a brilliant book by Jill Mansell, I had been looking forward to her latest book being published and Jill was true to form in producing an excellant read that I did'nt want to put down. You could loose yourself in the characters and feel as if you were at the hotel. In her amazing way of writting all the characters somehow touched on each others lives making it a truly enjoyable light hearted read with Daisy the main character seeing everyone else pair off finally getting to grips with her ideal man.

Having read, enjoyed and kept all of Jill Mansells previous books, I was not disappointed with her new offering. This has been my favourite so far. I loved all the characters, the way their lives were interwoven together. Dev the lead man sounds yummy! A wonderful, light-hearted read.

I started this book, then for some strange reason i went into s reading lull where i couldnt be bothered to read anything (nothing to do with this book!) so i left it for a couple of months, when i finally picked it up sgain a couple of weeks ago i couldnt put it down and finished it in a couple of nights. it is another Mansell winner. she is still my fave chick-lit suthor.

I wasnt sure i would like Daisy at first, she seemed a bit pretentious, but she really grew on me as the book goes on. and the men are fab as [er usual. except Tara's spineless ex! i also loved the descriptions of the village as it felt you were really there and the hotel too. totally loved good old Hector!! and Clarissa was just adorable!
