I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
The Seeds of a Daisy by Alison Caiola
From the outside looking in, Lily Lockwood–popular star of the hit TV show “St. Joes”–seems to have it all. She has recently been nominated for an Emmy and her star is on the rise. Lily shares her beachfront Malibu home with her gorgeous actor-boyfriend Jamie. Perfect? Not so fast. Within a microcosmically short period of time, the whole thing falls apart when she learns that this boyfriend, on location shooting a Western, is riding horses all day and his curvy co-star all night. Then, before Lily can catch her breath, she gets words that her beloved mother, bestselling author Daisy Lockwood, has had a near-fatal car crash and is in intensive care in New York.
Lily flies from Los Angeles to be with Daisy. Once there, she must make critical life-and-death decisions. While sorting through her mother’s papers, Lily makes a shocking discovery about her mother that threatens to shake Lily’s very foundation. This sets Lily on a journey as she seeks to unlock the riddle of her mother’s past.
My Review: 5 out of 5 stars. I want to just say that it takes a lot to truly blow me out of the water. The writing has to be on point. The story and characters have to be well developed. I have to be hooked as soon as I start reading. This book did ALL of those things for me. A story that explored so many real life events that were actually very realistic. A story that hit home for me in more ways than I can count. A story that truly spoke to my soul. This story will move you. No fluff here. Definitely grab this one. I’m currently reading Book 2 in this series (The Silver Cord) and it’s no different. Can’t wait to share it with you too!!
