Now, my rating on this is a depends rating. You see, the author gave us two different endings. Based on the synopsis below, you might think this is a bit of a science fiction/alien visitor type of story. And you might be right. Depending on which ending you choose to go with. Me, I loved the Believer ending, which would make it 5 stars for me. But if she had just gone with the Skeptic ending, well, then it would have been only 4 stars. So I compromised with the 4.5 stars finally. From the minute I picked this one up though, I was hooked. I wish I'd gone ahead and read it last summer right after I bought it at Book Bonanza, so that I could have stayed up all night reading it on a summer night with no school the next morning. Instead, I waited, and there you go. Loved the humor, the story, the angst, the setting of the story, all of it. There was even one line that just kept me laughing out loud for quite a while after, even as I continued reading: "The unicorn of orgasms".

If you get a chance, you should read Tinfoil Heart by Daisy Prescott. The plot is pretty decent. It's an interesting twist on the typical romance novel. Lucy moves to Roswell, New Mexico because she is looking for information about her missing father. Years ago, her mother told everyone that he was abducted by aliens. So why not move to a town that is a hub of alien conspiracy theories? She's not planning to stay but she meets a few new friends including the incredibly handsome Boone Santos. While reading this book, I actually laughed out loud at least twice. I wasn't expecting the book to be so funny. There's a smidgen of sex in this book so it's not for kids. I'm going extending my boundaries about reading and writing about sex that I have -just for you guys. It's a hardship . . . (pun intended. Maybe?) On a side note, this was a surprise review - mostly for me. It was almost a half-done review. Apparently, I signed up for a blog tour that I forgot about and then got the post day wrong. Plus, I didn't have the book finished in time. OOPS. Sorry.

Every time I pick up a book by Daisy Prescott, I like her more and more. This book was no exception. I loved it. The premise is original and the happenings are very amusing, and Lucy's inner voice is amusing, and made me smile. I really enjoyed it. I also really liked the very stoic Boone. He is a good, ahem, foil for Lucy. And I absolutely adored all of the secondary characters. I hope to return to Roswell soon. Reviewed by: Clare M.

I’m going to go ahead and preface this by saying I absolutely adored this book. It was so charming and unique, filled with witty dialogue and wonderful characters. The idea of this book intrigued me and even though I’m not into books about aliens, I am into this book because that’s not the main focus of Tinfoil Heart (I love this title, btw. It’s so fitting and adorable). It’s focuses on the main character Lucy, who has relocated to Roswell, New Mexico, the mecca of all things alien, to try and find a way to be closer to her father, who left their family when she was little. Throughout this whole book, it felt like Lucy was my best friend and was just sitting down to hang out with me and have a chat, the narration was very relatable and laid back, it just sucked me in. I love the main character because she picks up her life and moves to Roswell because she’s trying to find out if her dad was really abducted by aliens (which is what her mother believed) or if he really abandoned his family out of the blue when she was young. After she lost her mother, she told the house and moved to the town most associated with aliens, Roswell, New Mexico. I love how self-sufficient, weird and quirky she is. I love that she embraced her weirdness, her obsession with aliens and conspiracy theories, and lived her life like she wanted. Oh man, Boone. I want go too much into his character because there are things you need to learn as you read, but he was so.. secret sexy, a little mysterious, quietly charming and I love him to pieces. He shows up every day for breakfast at the diner Lucy works at, and their relationship slowly builds as the months progress and it turns into this adorably awkward, steamy and funny more than a friendship. This book made me laugh a lot, it made me smile in so many different places and I couldn’t stop reading it once I picked it up. I gave it 4.5 stars and seriously enjoyed it. Underneath the aliens and theories and Roswell-ness of this book, it’s about letting go of what’s holding you back and opening yourself up to new experiences. It’s quirky, unique and overall just a wonderful book. Plus it gives you two different options for an epilogue – one for skeptics and one for believers. I’m not sure which one I liked better – both offered a unique and wonderful ending to this book.

Lucy grew up thinking her father had been abducted by aliens. It wasn’t just a story to cover up the fact her father was a runaway dad they really believed it. When Lucy’s mother passes away from cancer, Lucy decides to head out to New Mexico where her parents met to look into those alien abduction theories. Working as a waitress at a small diner in Roswell, Lucy meets Boone Santos. After months of only quiet eating one day he decides to break his silence and ask her out on a date. As he shows her different local aspects of Roswell Lucy is torn between finding out the truth about her father and falling in love with Boone. For some reason she thinks she can’t do both. I wanted to read this novel because a romance novel in a Roswell setting was truly unique and this story really was one of a kind. The romance at the beginning led me to believe this was going to be a lighthearted love story, but really it was a story about a young woman who was determined to find her roots. Her father’s abandonment of she and her mother made Lucy shy away from commitment. When Boone’s interest turns serious Lucy has to make that decision of whether she wants to continue finding out what happened to her father or stay in Roswell and root herself. This novel was quirky, fun and emotional taking the reader on their own journey right along with Lucy. She was a bit of a nut so that journey strayed down a few strange paths but I like her character a lot so I was happy meandering along after her. Boone was that good looking hunky hero that you expect to see in a romance but he had some hidden depths that were revealed a bit at a time. This story had quite a few surprises, the biggest being an alternate ending choice for those of us who are more adventurous in our decisions. Tinfoil Heart was my first novel by Daisy Prescott. It’s depth was a pleasant surprise and the feelings these characters generated will resonate for quite a few days. ❤❤❤❤

Tinfoil Heart by Daisy Prescott is hands-down the most unique books I have read EVER! I mean that in the most complimentary manner!!!! I had no idea the trip that Prescott was going to take me on, and I loved every minute of it!!!! Lucy tries to live a normal life, but her past has dictated her less than normal path. She has a secret not many know about her. She is looking for the father that abandoned her years ago. She was given the story that her father was abducted by aliens from her mother. At first, she doesn’t believe it. However, after nearly depleting all of her savings and not finding answers, she is now working as a waitress in Roswell, NM looking for anything she may have missed. She considers herself a cynic of all things alien, but it’s much easier to believe that than just believing he left her without ever looking back. Lucy, like the story itself, is unique. Her personality is infectious, and those that know her love her. When Boone, a mysterious and sexy customer, enters her life, I liked her even more. She has a great heart and cares about others. Deep down, that hurt little girl abandoned by her father exists so she has a hard time trusting others. When she finds herself falling for Boone, her first instinct is to run and protect him from her crazy. She is scared of his rejection when he finds out the truth about her. I could easily see why she fell hard for Boone. That mysterious air about him makes him even sexier. He is also very funny, witty, and intelligent. I adore the relationship he has with his sister. Like Lucy, he is hiding some secrets too. I knew it would be interesting when they each discovered what the other was hiding. I love the way Prescott writes. She pulled me completely into the story from the very first chapter. The biggest surprise was the epilogues…a genius idea. She weaved just the right information throughout the book to make each plausible. This talented writer wrote a book combining humor, romance, alien conspiracy, and a journey of self-discovery, and she did it FLAWLESSLY!!!! ***READ AND REVIEWED FOR DEVILISHLY DELICIOUS BOOK REVIEWS***

Tinfoil Hearts is a full length, standalone, romance novel by author Daisy Prescott. It’s a unique, funny story about a girl searching for the truth about her past. Lucy Halliday has no one special in her life, she’s alone, having lost her father when she was a child. She believes he was abducted by aliens and decides to move to roswell, New Mexico to finally uncover the truth about his past. Boone Santos is an arrogant fork in her road, but he’s also irresistibly attractive and compelling, throwing spanners in her plans and smashing down her walls. Lucy may be obsessed but her belief in aliens, making her seem a bit odd and slightly crazy at times but Boone wants her to be his and he’ll stop at nothing to win her over. Will Lucy find true love and forget about her need to know or will she let Boone slip through her fingers. I really enjoyed these two characters and their special story and I know you will to. So One-Click this emotional and heart-warming story today.

Tinfoil Heart is pure joy. Daisy Prescott proves once again that she is a master of romantic comedy. She seamlessly crafts a story that is full of hope and second chances and even adds the possibility of the existence of aliens and makes it all work beautifully! That truly is a gift. When Lucy heads west after she's lost her Mom, I don't think she even knew what she was looking for. The absent father who suddenly went missing when she was 9 has always been a sad curiosity for her. Her new life in New Mexico could finally provide the answers as to what happened to her dad all those years ago using the incredibly wild story her mother had told her as the start of her search. But what Lucy didn't expect or even think she needed was the mustachioed man who was a daily customer at the truck stop in which she was waitress. She is definitely intrigued by the man of few words and he seems just as smitten. I loved all the awkward encounters between Lucy and Boone. They have an interesting start and as much as Lucy just wants her life to be about finding her Dad and then moving on, soon she realizes just how entrenched she is, in both the people and the town she has reluctantly adopted. This book has a myriad of colorful characters from Zed to Shari to Wanda and even the gruff veteran in Jim. They all add the right amount of flavor and perfect backdrop to the burgeoning romance between Boone and Lucy. Boone and Lucy have some great sexy times, some poignant times but overall it's the sheer fun that is this book that makes the biggest impression. This quirky tale has a few surprises in store particularly as the end draws near. In addition, the author does a fabulous job in tying every 'out there' element together beautifully. I love that Daisy Prescott thinks out of the box and continues to give us stories that can both warm out hearts and leave us in stitches. Both Boone and Lucy are incredibly well-written and I really enjoyed spending time with them. You must give Tinfoil Heart a try. You won't be able to stop smiling and you'll get a wonderful tour of New Mexico, one of the delightful extras Daisy Prescott adds to each of her books. Her research is impeccable and I find myself wanting to visit each and every place she features. I happily give Tinfoil Heart 5 out of this world stars!!
