Daisy’s Christmas Gift Shop written by Hannah Pearl, publisher Ruby Fiction (an imprint of Choc Lit UK) is available NOW in ebook and audiobook format.
Struggling to find the perfect Christmas gift? Step into Romantic Daze …
Daisy Kirk is a sucker for a love story, which is why she opened up her gift shop – because there’s nothing that makes Daisy happier than when she’s helped a customer achieve their own ‘happily ever after’ by finding the perfect Christmas gift for their loved one. And she absolutely does not just sell ‘soppy presents and frilly pants’ as her brother’s infuriating best friend, Eli, is so fond of suggesting.
The sad fact is that whilst Daisy is helping others with their love lives, hers is non-existent. But when unusual circumstances take Daisy and Eli on a road trip from London to rural Wales, will she finally get the happily ever after to her own Christmas love story?

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Hannah Pearl’s latest novel: Daisy’s Christmas Gift Shop. This is my first introduction to the work of Hannah Pearl and her words captivated me in this most gorgeous, sexy, sweet, festive romcom.
Daisy owns and runs a bespoke gift shop just off the beaten track in the heart of London. Her gift shop is unique in that she offers a personal gift finding service to all her customers locating the perfect gift to express gratitude and love to the recipient. I adored the sound of Daisy’s shop and want to know where I can find a real-life version of it.
Daisy has a twin brother, Ben, who is a whizz with computers but isn’t very confident with his social skills and sometimes finds life a little overwhelming at times. Ben and his best friend from childhood, Eli, work together for the government; it all sounds very exciting with secret missions and James Bond-esque espionage. Daisy and Eli have a strained relationship at times and can often be found bickering but she has had a crush on Eli for as long as she can remember. Eli sounded like the perfect James Bond, he had the looks, the six pack, the brains but sadly he also had commitment issues, he doesn’t believe in love after having his heart broken in the past which he feels cannot be mended.
When Ben starts showing unusual signs of behaviour Daisy and Eli go on a mission to try and help Ben. This mission takes them on a journey across the country giving them ample opportunity to air out their emotions towards each other but are they both singing from the same hymn sheet?
Daisy’s Christmas Gift Shop is such a wonderful, entertaining, fun, heart-felt romcom that’s edged with a desire that’s been sizzling for years. I loved it all and secretly hope for a sequel as I feel I can’t not have another story without our sexy, adorable and sweet secret agents in! 😉
