And A Sixpence For Luck by Lilac Mills Review

Good evening all, well I am sorry, I had it in my head that this post was due tomorrow, apologies, anyway here it is - abate a little on the late side but here is my review for And A Sixpence For Luck by Lilac Mills.


Daisy Jones has hit rock bottom. Or so she believes.
A cheating boyfriend, trouble at work, having to move back in with her mother, and being forced to compare her brother's loved-up, newly-wed status and brand-new shiny house with her own dire lack of prospects, isn't what she imagined her life was going to be like at thirty. To top it all off, Christmas is just around the corner!

Daisy, bless her, thinks things can't possibly get any worse, but when her ancient great-grandmother persuades her to plant a silver sixpence in the Christmas pud for luck, Daisy is about to discover that they most definitely can.


Another gorgeous cover. Who doesn’t want to be out shopping for pretty gifts in the snow. I love the pastel colours of the background, it’s not too overly christmas-y (I’m not much of a Christmas person)


I love that this story is all about luck, good and bad. The story follows Daisy and how she finds herself with no job and no boyfriend. She takes herself home for Christmas and encounters lots of twists and turns for the festive period.

Daisy is instantly likeable, she’s very much a character you can connect with, she comes across very real (excellent writing on Lilac’s behalf). Daisy endures a lot of the same issues we do in everyday life and you can’t help but feel like she could easily be your best friend, or be you. 

Having said previously that I’m not much a fan of Christmas I do love a good Christmas book or movie and this one does not disappoint. It’s perfect for a cosy night in by the fire with a hot chocolate. I am fast becoming a fan of Lilac’s books, she is an extraordinary writer and keeps you engaged all the way through.


Lilac spends all her time writing, or reading, or thinking about writing or reading, often to the detriment of her day job, her family, and the housework. She apologises to her employer and her loved ones, but the house will simply have to deal with it!

She calls Worcester home, though she would prefer to call somewhere hot and sunny home, somewhere with a beach and cocktails and endless opportunities for snoozing in the sun…

When she isn’t hunched over a computer or dreaming about foreign shores, she enjoys creating strange, inedible dishes in the kitchen, accusing her daughter of stealing (she meant to say “borrowing”) her clothes, and fighting with her husband over whose turn it is to empty the dishwasher.
