Daisy Jones has hit rock bottom. Or so she believes.
A cheating boyfriend, trouble at work, having to move back in with her mother, and being forced to compare her brother’s loved-up, newly-wed status and brand-new shiny house with her own dire lack of prospects, isn’t what she imagined her life was going to be like at thirty. To top it all off, Christmas is just around the corner!
Daisy, bless her, thinks things can’t possibly get any worse, but when her ancient great-grandmother persuades her to plant a silver sixpence in the Christmas pud for luck, Daisy is about to discover that they most definitely can.
Book Rating: 8/10
Entertaining, heartening, and splendidly merry!
and a Sixpence for Luck is a sweet, holiday read that takes us on a tour of Daisy’s life as she meanders through all sorts of highs and lows, from losing her job, home and long-time love to forging new friendships and finding true love.
It is ultimately a story about friendship, family, self-discovery, and happiness.
The prose is light and fluid. The characters, including all the supporting characters, are unique, quirky, and lovable. And the plot is flirty, fun and full of tricky situations, zany mishaps, awkward moments, delicious chemistry, and heartfelt emotion.
Overall, and a Sixpence for Luck is a delightfully, jolly novel by Mills that will have you smiling from the very first page to the irresistible happy-ever-after ending.

About the Author:
Lilac spends all her time writing, or reading, or thinking about writing or reading, often to the detriment of her day job, her family, and the housework. She apologises to her employer and her loved ones, but the house will simply have to deal with it!
She calls Worcester home, though she would prefer to call somewhere hot and sunny home, somewhere with a beach and cocktails and endless opportunities for snoozing in the sun…
When she isn’t hunched over a computer or dreaming about foreign shores, she enjoys creating strange, inedible dishes in the kitchen, accusing her daughter of stealing (she meant to say “borrowing”) her clothes, and fighting with her husband over whose turn it is to empty the dishwasher.
