A Date For Daisy By Tara Grace Ericson

A Date For Daisy
by Tara Grace Ericson
Publisher: Silver Fountain Press
ISBN: 978-1949896121

I was so excited to be part of Tara's launch team. I'm a few days behind on my review, but I the past couple of days I was able to read book 0 (yes that's a thing... prequel) and book 1 in her The Bloom Sisters Series! She sent me book 0 in paperback and book 1 as an ebook. I'm excited to have book 1 in paperback soon! Oh, and by the way, she's self published and you'd think it was from a small publishing house, not even kidding!

Summary:

He thinks she’s the captain of the Hot Mess Express.She thinks he’s rigid and wound too tight.And this renovation is about to get complicated. Daisy Bloom is determined to turn her 100-year-old house into a bed and breakfast. The only problem? She knows nothing about renovations.Enter Lance Matthews, construction guru and business owner. He is determined to tackle this project with his usual methodical, organized approach. His only problem? The beautiful and infuriating homeowner -- deeply involved with the project and completely averse to lists, schedules, or any form of organization.When sparks fly between these wildly different personalities, will they find common ground? Or does God have other plans for each of them?

My Review:

These first two books were my introduction to Tara's writing! What a couple of enjoyable stories. Here was another first for me, the prequel is in concurrence with book 1! I loved that and have never experienced that in a book before. There was actually some excitement knowing that I had an idea of how events would unfold as I read the story of Daisy and Lance. I dove into A Date For Daisy as soon as I finished Hoping for Hawthorne.

Having gotten to know Daisy in book 0, I was looking forward to getting to know why Lance got under her skin so much. I really liked Daisy because of her git 'er done attitude and well, I may have seen a bit of myself in her (aside from her Diet Dr. Pepper addiction). I appreciate the author showing Daisy's flaws so easily. This character seems like someone we all know in real life.

Then there's Lance. Sounds like he's easy on the eyes, really knows what he's doing as a contractor (thanks to good ol' dad), and the guy never has his ducks out order. Let's just stop here so I can say how bad I felt for Daisy. lol I guess the way I related to Lance is that I don't like when people use my tools and don't put them back! I wanted to whisper into the book and say, "I feel for ya buddy!"

I enjoyed the writing and there were a couple small mysteries going on in the background with her sister, Poppy, and the inspector who I wanted to knock upside his head! Let's just say I'm looking forward to Poppy's story next!

If you're looking for a story that incorporates some romance, a wonderful helping of faith, and a bouquet of sisters you want to know more, you're going to want to grab this story! Don't miss book 0 because it's such a great introduction to the series.

About the Author:

Tara Grace Ericson lives in Missouri with her husband and two sons. She studied engineering and worked as an engineer for many years before embracing her creative side to become a full-time author. Her first book, Falling on Main Street, was written mostly from airport waiting areas and bleak hotel rooms as she traveled in her position as a sales engineer. She loves cooking, crocheting, and reading books by the dozen. Her writing partner is usually her black lab - Ruby - and a good cup of coffee or tea. Tara unashamedly watches Hallmark movies all winter long, even though they are predictable and cheesy. She loves a good “happily ever after” with an engaging love story. That’s why Tara focuses on writing clean contemporary romance, with an emphasis on Christian faith and living. She wants to encourage her readers with stories of men and women who live out their faith in tough situations.
