NAME: Daisy Feet.
NATIONALITY: Duel citizen. Expat kid. Confused.
CURRENT LOCATION: On a plane, somewhere over Japan. I can see Mount Fuji from the window. I don’t care if we slam into it. Instant death by national wonder would be a lot less painful than having to face what’s on the ground: a new life. Let me rephrase that. Another new life!
I don’t want a new life. I like my old one in Sydney. I had great friends, an amazing first boyfriend, and school was bearable. But now my parents expect me to start all over again in Tokyo.
I wonder if I can call child services from a plane.
It’s not easy being Daisy… but it’s always interesting. Experience Japan through the eyes of a truly well-travelled teen. Part travel guide, part romance, a whole world of fun.
Once a month, seven very different women come together to discuss books. They all love a happy ending, but have lost sight of how to get their own. Paige misses glimpsing the magic in the world. Sadie doesn't see the beauty inside people. Amanda wonders what she ever saw in her ex husband. Tilda literally can't see herself. Michi can't bear looking at her family, while Clementine is blind to what's right in front of her. And Eva looks for romance in all the wrong places.
But things are about to change ...
Meet the women of the Happy Endings Book Club as they celebrate Christmas, and themselves, in London, Paris, Vienna, New York, Sydney ... and in love.
The "gifted" Shakespeare women have always had their one true love. Problem is, Calypso's came and went and didn't work out too well. She doesn't need a crystal ball to see that she'll never love again. Even her gift of mixing magical cocktails can't help heal her own bruised heart.
Instead she concentrates on concocting potions that help other people find love. A dash of this, a pinch of that, a nip of liquor, muddle with flower petals and then part the veils and cast a spell. Calypso's supernatural services are in demand everywhere. It's the perfect life for a wanderer like Calypso.
Calypso drifts between bars in Paris and Vienna, and her own tiny Cauldron in the basement of her parents' haunted London pub. She's regularly on the road or at her Cornwall cottage harvesting herbs and checking her distillery. She's never in one place for long. Certainly not long enough to date. Calypso's future is clear: Cocktails and travel. And that's just fine.
That is until Taran Dee shows up and Calypso finds she has real trouble brewing ...
Trouble Brewing is the second book in the Shakespeare Sisters series.
