Overview

Sarah Jessica Parker has said about this book: "What a great story!"From the outside looking in, Lily Lockwood-popular star of the hit TV show "St. Joes"-seems to have it all. She has recently been nominated for an Emmy and her star is on the rise. Lily shares her beachfront Malibu home with her gorgeous actor-boyfriend Jamie. A perfect movie star romance and love story? Not so fast. Within a microcosmically short period of time, the whole thing falls apart when she learns that this boyfriend, on location shooting a Western, is riding horses all day and his curvy co-star all night. Lily is heartbroken, but before she can catch her breath she gets words that her mother, Daisy Lockwood-beloved author of women's fiction bestsellers and whose newest books are both NY Times bestsellers-has had a near-fatal car crash and is in intensive care in New York. Lily is devastated and flies from Los Angeles to be with Daisy. Once there, she must make critical life-and-death decisions. While sorting through her mother's papers, Lily makes a shocking discovery about her mother that threatens to shake Lily's very foundation. This sets Lily on a journey as she seeks to unlock the riddle of her mother's past. More than a medical drama fiction, this award-winning tear-jerker, chock full of funny moments, suspense and mystery will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Recommended for readers seeking character-driven dramas.
Let’s just say I devoured this one. I started reading during lunch and finished by mid-afternoon. Caiola’s conversational style and flair for drama make this novel a suspenseful and absorbing read.

Caiola writes with a natural, conversational style that brings Lily’s voice to life. The realistic dialogue and easy, fluid prose carry the story forward in a way that makes the pages turn themselves. 5 out of 5

This novel is an excellent combination of great story-telling mixed with insider Hollywood info. I found the main character's journey gripping, and I finished the book in a day. Although in many books it's hard for the reader to relate to a character who's a famous actress, that wasn't the case in The Seeds of a Daisy. Lily, the main character, is human like the rest of us, slightly flawed like the rest of us, and going through a situation that is too horrifying for many of us to comprehend. I found myself wishing I could be there for her. The writer does an excellent job of weaving past and present as well as introducing a variety of colorful characters along the way. The dialogue flows easily and the pages flew by. As someone who has lived in both California and New York, I personally loved all of the specific LA and NY references. Also, the writer's experience with the entertainment industry shines through. The book helps us examine our own lives, relationships and friendships. There's a mix of both heavy, difficult moments as well as lighter ones that will make you smile. I highly recommend it.
