Love, Lies and Lemon Cake by Sue Watson + Giveaway!

Love, Lies and Lemon Cake is a laugh-out-loud, bittersweet comedy about taking your life back before it’s too late.

Faye Dobson has lost her sparkle. Living on film star fantasies and vague memories of a marriage that once was, she can’t help feeling that life is passing her by. She dreams of being whisked to Paris for dinner, making three wishes at the Trevi fountain and having sex under the stars. But the wrinkles are multiplying, her husband’s passion is for plumbing, and the nearest she’ll get to Rome is a take-away pizza.

So when Faye meets Dan the gorgeous Australian surfer guy working in the local deli she can’t help but wonder what it would be like to see the world. He is blonde, tanned, ten years younger and bakes the most amazing lemon cake. Unlike her husband Dan actually listens to Faye, his smile makes her feel fizzy inside, and when he smiles... Oh. My. God.

But is Faye being silly? What would Dan see in someone like her? Even if he did have feelings for her, could she give up everything to be with him? 


Faye Dobson isn't happy. She's secretly been wishing for years to get away from home and her boring marriage. Her husband is more interested in pipes than in his wife. She dreams about sexy film stars, which is the highlight of her life. She wants to change that, to see the world. When she meets Dan, the new Australian guy behind the counter of a local deli Faye decides it's time to put her plans into action. She packs her beautiful pink backpack and leaves home to live with a friend. This means a future without certainties, filled with lemon cake and dares. Faye finally starts living. It's scary, but it's also a lot of fun. The only question is, if Dan is really interested in Faye? Was she right to give up her safe and secure life for a much younger man?
I'm a big fan of Sue Watson. When she asked me to read this book I was thrilled and I couldn't wait to get started. The story is wonderful as the cute and cheerful cover. I loved the life plans on Faye's living list. For me well executed food talk, especially about baking, makes a book so much fun. I could almost taste Dan's delicious lemon cake. Faye is such a great main character, she rocks, especially when she's doing all those things she never dreamed of daring to do. Age is something relative, it's never too late for change. This book doesn't only prove that, it embraces it. Love, Lies and Lemon Cake is a fantastic summer read!
