I recently read & LOVED Guilty Pleasures so I thought I would give this one a go too & I really enjoyed it! It wasnt as gripping as I was expecting, but it was a really enjoyable, although a little predictable at times, but still a great book to read by the pool or on the plane! I would def recommend it - if you enjoy sophie kinsella & marion keyes, you will enjoy these too!

  Amazing!!

Daddy's Girls is a page-turner granted, but it's about four ridiculously advantaged and priveliged (and very thin) women who probably don't know the price of a loaf of bread and the or two pints of lager. Ok, I admit it I'm a northern nondescript who thought Louboutin was a type of car and Jimmy Choo sounded like a train, but normal ignorance aside. Daddy's girl does what it sets out clearly to do entice the reader into a world that (the majority of us) will never step into. There's designer labels on every page, every outfit is described, every location savoured over, every meal leaving your mouth watering for a taste of the experience. You can lap it up in around three hours and yet you still go back to it. Tasmina Perry has nearly done what JK Rowling finally conquered which was to suck readers into a wonderful world and yet still leave them gagging for more. However the downsides are - the book does have a very predictable storyline and the majority of the characters are very one-dimensional and very predictable ie, the spoilt actress who finally learns to take responsibilty, the lawyer who finds her conscience etc..
I do have to agree though the author has written a pretty semi-autobiographical account and she came from magazine journalism of which most of the magazines gave stellar reviews, so I'm quite skeptical that way.
Conclusion - it's a good book to read on holiday or if you're bored, but I hope it doesn't win any serious prizes as Tasmina Perry has a lot to do to convince me that she's a serious author.

  Excellent debut novel!

Chick-lit fans behold - Tasmina Perry has written a stunning debut novel about the lives of flour glamourous sisters with sizzling sex lives, gossip as a hobby and a father who is too hard to please. Their father is found dead at Christmas and the girls are desperate to find out who has done it. The whole story is based on the months before their fathers death, so we meet them, their father and the men in their lives.

Meet Serina, Cate, Camilla ad Venetia and follow them in this book that is certainly one hell of a guilty pleasure!

Surely the author must be on the payroll of the endless 'designer name' product companies named in this shallow, predictable and boring book - possibly hence the rave reviews by glamour magazines? The characters & plot are shallow and uninteresting. Don't bother!!
