But things changed the night Daisy's reckless behavior destroyed the life of someone she loved. Unable to face what she had done Daisy ran away. Now five years later she's returning home for the holidays hoping to put the past behind her.

Great Read. Daisy's New Dawn is book two of the Partick Garden series by Celeste Messer. Patrick names his daughters after the flowers grown in his garden. He also put them in categories and expected them to follow his decree. Daisy was the athlete and the reckless one. She was irresponsible and lived to play soccer. One drunk driving event left her friend in a wheelchair and sent her running out of town. Now she is back. According to her sister's, Daisy was still irresponsible. She decided early on just to live up to their beliefs and had taken a few risks in her life away from New Layne. One such event led to a friendship with A.J. which just seems to go on and on and nowhere at the same time. Now she is back in New Layne. She moves into an apartment next to her sister. She is just subleasing the apartment and that includes taking care of a cat. She has also decided to join her brother-in-law Ben in a soccer tournament. This is the first she has played soccer since the accident. She falls in love with it again and decides to keep on playing on Ben's team. She meets Garrett Hamilton here and begins dating him. At the same time, she is trying to convince Officer Erik Espinosa that she and Sam, his partner, are an item to cover up Sam's love for Erik's sister, Faith. It becomes harder and harder to keep up the pretense. It seems she keeps running into Erik everywhere she goes. Just when things begin to settle down, her past comes back to haunt her. I tis a good book with well thought out characters. The plot is much more convoluted in this book than in the first one. —P.Blevins
