Welcome to Holly’s Hawaiian Holiday, the third book in a brand new series from the author of the Hummingbird Hotel series and the Cornish Confetti Agency series.
Escape to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands!
When Holly Henderson loses her dog-grooming business in the Blossomwood Bay fire, she’s devastated, and her plans to expand into creative coat-dyeing are over before they began. After her temporary job at Blossomwood Kennels also comes to a heart-breaking end, she’s left with no choice but to accept her cousin’s offer of a dog-sitting assignment for celebrity TV chef Oscar Reynolds if she wants to keep her beloved springer spaniel, Ariel, in dog biscuits.
However, the assignment is in Hawaii and Holly has never been further than a short weekend trip to Paris. With some trepidation, she heads to Oahu and the Mahina family’s ranch where, within five minutes of arriving, she’s run off the road by a speeding Ferrari and doused in an avalanche of “organic” fertiliser.
So much for the glamorous holiday she’d hoped to enjoy!
But despite the inauspicious start, it doesn’t take long for the tropical island paradise to weave its Aloha magic through Holly’s veins. Can the hang loose lifestyle help her find the confidence she needs to deal with the demons that have been chasing her for as long as she can remember? Or will they continue to pursue her, sapping her energy, and ruining her chance of finding happiness?
Join Holly as she explores everything the beautiful Hawaiian Islands have to offer, and enjoy a story filled with sun, sea, and surfing, along with a Dash, Dollop & Drizzle of heart-warming romance.
Daisy James loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something pink and fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.

today I’m bringing you a review for a new book by Daisy James ‘Holly’s Hawaiian Holiday’. It is a book 3 in The Blossomwood Bay Series. I have already reviewed the first two books in the series; Tilly’s Tuscan Teashop and Freya’s French Farmshouse. If you can’t tell by now, I am a fan of this series for sure.
In this book, we follow Holly – our dog lover – on her trip to Hawaii to do dog sitting for a celebrity chef. I have to say, when Holly sat on that airplane to go to Hawaii, I mentally joined her and Daisy did deliver with the descriptions to make me feel like I am there with her. Not only that, but the characters were amazing this time as well. I couldn’t help but being excited to see what is going to happen next with all of them.
It was also so beautiful to see how Holly opened up to love and just exploring new things. The way she grew as a character was something I really enjoyed to read. I felt how it is to feel free in a new place. Not only has she been through a lot but Oscar as well. He has had his fair share of pain and unluck but it seemed like being in Hawaii helped him a lot. Hawaii seems like a healing place or is it just Daisy’s amazing writing? Or maybe a mixture of both?
As much as this book is a part of a series, it can easily be read as a stand alone, like any book in this series. If you are still craving sun and have wanted to visit Hawaii at some point, start with this book. Daisy will take you on the journey for sure. Before the autumn comes around, make sure to take a trip to sunny destination even if “only” by reading this book.
Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle.
