Review: Discovering Daisy

Discovering Daisy by Betty Neels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Poor Daisy has had a rough road of late, when her puppy love beau turns out to be a asshat, falling into one of Holland's canals and getting mugged wasn't bad enough, worse it seems when she's at her lowest Mr. Jules der Huizma seems to always there to give her hand. She knows not to let this kind stranger near her heart, she's already been burnt and he's off limits being engaged. Only she didn't count on him falling in love with her.

This was one of the sweetest Betty Neels books I've read so far. Of course some of the troubles Daisy gets herself into as we're reminded of her being a “sensible person” seems a tad overkill. Only this makes her not so perfect and a reliable and determined human being in the end.
Daisy works at her father's antiques shop , so there's a gentle lull as the days go by Daisy tries to wrap her head around Jules and his motives and actions toward her.

When Evelyn sister Rose disappears, she leaves everything behind to search for her, with the help of Mr.Kent and the odd Sebastian Braddock with his fantastic tales of super-humans, and to top it off claims the sisters also have special gifts also. Everlyn dismisses this as crazy, only to be shown it's all true.
I adored Everlyn, with her humor and snarkness, she had a spine of steel and wouldn't give up in the face of alot of heartbreak, she's still fighting. Although I loved Everlyn, I didn't care for the supposed "love triangle" something that's a big turn off for me, but there again, this was more of adventure book, so even the romance was pretty thin of …
