Daisy’s Dilemma by Debbie Viggiano

I was attracted to this book by the intriguing title and the wonderful cover. I was keen to know more about Daisy and find out more about her dilemma, which seems to be definitely romance related. The cover is gorgeous and definitely stands out, and the simplicity of it I find really sophisticated. I am a big lover of romantic comedies and am always keen to find new authors in this genre.


Florist Daisy is loved-up and blossoming. Boyfriend Dominic has proposed marriage!

However, Dominic isn’t in any rush to buy a ring, and meeting the parents is looong overdue. What is the problem? After all, Daisy’s mum has already bought her big hat and wants to know the wedding date!

Then careless words plant seeds of doubt and, like weed, Daisy’s concerns begin to multiply. Is Dominic hiding something?

Meanwhile, sexy ex Harry is back on the scene and begging Daisy for a reconciliation. He thought the grass was greener with HER but now says he made a mistake. Is Harry – for once – being genuine, or simply leading Daisy up the garden path?

New neighbour Seth seems like a fun guy, but a single throwaway comment has Daisy mimicking a species of Calla Lily – Red Alert! It’s time to do some digging. But even she never anticipated a mad car chase across London or unearthing a shocking secret that changes everything.

Sparks are set to fly in this gorgeous romantic comedy about love, trust, and new beginnings.

My thoughts:

Life is pretty stressful and hectic right now and this has definitely been the pick me up and tonic that I have needed. I knew that I was going to adore this book from the opening pages, as Debbie had me laughing out loud and smiling in the first few pages. I read romantic comedies often, and though they often make me smile and I find them light-hearted, they very rarely make me laugh in the way this one has.

There is a perfect mix in the book of drama, romance, comedy and outstanding storytelling. This is partly due to Debbie’s obvious talent for writing and stylistic humour, but it is also down to the wonderful array of characters in the book. I really liked Daisy as a character and thought her inner monologues were a great touch to allow the reader to get inside her head and develop a relationship with, and sympathy for, her.

Debbie explores some very important topics. As someone who myself has been through divorce and found myself questioning my choices, I feel like this book explored some important issues about re-building your self confidence and trust.

I have absolutely adored this book and following Daisy’s journey. I was rooting for her happiness throughout. I am very keen to invest in Debbie’s back catalogue as she is certainly a rare diamond in the way she writes romantic fiction that is equally heart-felt and hilarious. I would recommend this book and author to fans of Camilla Isley, Mary Jayne Baker and Victoria Cooke.
