‘Chasing Daisy’ by Paige Toon: Book Review

Having been jilted by the love of her life, Daisy makes the decision to pack her bags and move far away in order for her to move on with her life. Making the decision to give up on men and keep her past a secret, Daisy joins a team catering for the highest paid racing drivers in the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Through travelling around the world and getting to know the racing drivers, Daisy finds it hard to keep her promise to herself of keeping away from men when she meets the handsome Will Trust. The only problem is, Will is in a very serious long-term relationship, so will she ever get a happy ever after with him, or is she just kidding herself?

Once again, Paige Toon has failed to disappoint me. The more books of hers I read, the more I fall in love with her writing style.71C29sK5fwL__SL1223_

I absolutely adored this book. I smiled, I cried, I laughed and I gasped… I’m pretty sure I went through every emotion under the sun whilst reading this. The story is very much centred around the Grand Prix, therefore I wasn’t sure whether I would enjoy it very much due to not having a huge interest in race driving. However, although the majority of the book is set within the racing grounds, it is mainly focussed on the characters during that time rather than the actual races which I thought was great as it didn’t make me lose interest!
