Everything's Coming Up Daisy
by Nancy Fraser
GENRE: Romantic Comedy
Kristen Matthews is a single mother of a very precocious five-year old named, Daisy. When Kristen and Daisy relocate to Last Chance Beach to live with Kristen’s eccentric aunt, Kristen has her reservations. The move brings them in close proximity to her ex-boyfriend’s rich family. Given Daisy’s father never wanted a permanent arrangement, neither he nor Kristen ever told his family about Daisy’s birth.
Ellis Tait has taken over the management of all of Tait Holding’s businesses since his father’s passing. His step-mother prefers her Summerville mansion. His playboy brother hasn’t been seen or heard from in nearly five years, preferring to travel around Europe squandering his inheritance. After a number of intense business negotiations, Ellis travels to the family’s vacation estate on Last Chance Beach for a few weeks of relaxation—not that he ever truly relaxes.
When Kristen and Ellis meet for the first time, Kristen’s determined to keep the secret of Daisy’s heritage to herself. However, the more she gets to know Ellis, the more she realizes he’s nothing at all like his younger brother.
A modern twist on the classic Sabrina. Can this single-mom avoid her ex’s family and hide the fact that her daughter is heiress to the family fortune? Or, will the island magic of Last Chance Beach unite an overworked mom and curmudgeon of a family patriarch in time for a happily-ever-after?

Kristen arrived at work with barely ten minutes to spare before the start of her shift. About to pin her name badge onto her vest, she was caught by surprise when her cell rang. Glancing down at the screen, she stopped short.
Last Chance Beach Police Department.
Has something happened to Daisy? Aunt Eloise?
Punching the button, she said, “This is Kristen Matthews.”
“Don’t panic, Kristen, it’s nothing bad.”
She breathed a sigh of relief at the sound of Paul McElroy’s steady tenor. “What have they done now? Please don’t tell me they tried to open another lemonade stand?”
“No,” the young officer chuckled. “This time they were trespassing on private property. A call came into the station, and I went and picked them up.”
“They’d climbed the broken seawall between the public beach and the Tait place. Apparently, Daisy saw some pretty shells on the beach on the other side of the wall and went after them. Your aunt had no choice but to go after her. Supposedly, they were told to leave, and... well...”
“What did Eloise do?”
“According to your aunt, they were soundly scolded and Daisy started crying. Eloise staged a sit-in, plunking herself and Daisy down on the ground and refusing to leave until they apologized and allowed Daisy to gather some shells.”
“I was just about to start work.” Glancing around the bar, she added, “It’s not very busy. I suppose they don’t really need me at the moment. I can come pick them up.”
“Don’t worry about it, Kristen. I’ll drive them home. I only brought them into the station to maybe scare some sense into them.”
“Like that’s going to happen. Those two are a special brand of trouble.”
“That’s what makes them so darned adorable,” Paul joked. “It’s like Daisy’s your Aunt Eloise’s clone.”
“That’s exactly what I’m afraid of. They’re far too much alike.”
