HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
If you have ever been on the internet dating scene then I am sure that you will connect with the vast array of characters in this book. Daisy is 52, divorced and ready to try her hand at finding a new man to share her future with. Easy you might think but it was often a case of what you see isn’t always what you get!
The stories of the men she meets are anything from con men to the desperately lonely wanting anyone to love them, each with their own sad stories. There are some hilarious meetings, from men using photos taken years before to dramatic height differences. There are times when on-line connections between her and some of the men have a buzz but they lacked the physical attraction for her. After a couple of weeks of learning the basics, Daisy makes a tick list of rules to follow, unfortunately rarely does she manage to keep to them herself.
Daisy is a sexual health doctor and there are chapters that revolve round this aspect of her life too. There are some rather crazy people out there that have some pretty weird ways. I don’t know how she kept a straight face in real life. Additional chapters are on how to kiss and the differences between the more intimate areas to investigate, contraceptives and sexually transmitted diseases.
There are times when the story does get a little repetitive but it is still very enjoyable. I really got behind Daisy in finding Mr. Right. This is a book that you can read chunks of and find a place to stop and go back to it later. There is far more to this book than you first think.
