Welcome to the Aliso Creek Novella Series
Liz, Gemma, Arie, Jess, and Drew have been best friends since creating “the Five” at Aliso Creek High School. But that was over ten years ago, and each is still trying to find that perfect someone… if perfect is even possible.
Actually, Jess Giles does find her perfect match, but since Charlie’s several years older than she, they never have a moment of harmony from his adult kids who protest the marriage. When Charlie dies in a tragic accident, his kids add insult to injury and sue Jess for her share of the inheritance. The only person Jess trusts for financial advice is Charlie’s financial planner, Preston Michaels. Just talking to Preston on the phone makes Jess feel flustered, yet strangely comfortable at the same time, so she puts off meeting him for as long as possible. When Jess has to attend the formal hearing, she’s about to find out if the man she’s been talking to over the phone for several months lives up to the voice that she’s grown attached to.
This was the perfect book to read right before going to bed last night. I was exhausted but wanted to unwind and escape for a few minutes before falling asleep and had just downloaded a free copy of this novella from Amazon so thought I’d give it a try. I started in and didn’t turn the light out until I had finished it.
The Daisy Chain is a short novella easily read in an hour that left a smile on my face. It’s only 61 pages long so when you pick it up you know it’s not going to have a huge in-depth story line. However even with just 61 short pages Heather did a great job of creating characters and a story I cared about and could relate to. This is not the first novella in this series but I was able to read it as a stand alone without feeling like I was missing something. That said I will definitely pick up the other books in this series to read about the other characters who were mentioned in this book.
Rating: 4 Stars – Great Book
