" Love, Lies and Lemon Cake " by Sue Watson

I received an advance reading copy of this novel from the publishers in return for an honest review......

I have read Sue's first novel Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes and hoped, that similar to that book,  I was in for a light, funny and calorific read.  She didn't disappoint me.  This is the story of 42 year old Faye, who has had enough of her boring marriage and, having found a To-Do-List from years previous, she realises that none of her dreams have really come true.  She decides to grab the bull by the horns and do something with her life.  As her daughter has moved off to college, there is nothing to stop her from starting over.  With the help of her employer and friends, she makes some headway towards the 'New Faye' with some hilarious results.  A cougar crush on a young Australian deli-worker, a session of vajazzling and some serious foot-in-mouth comments from the verbally inept Faye are just some of the giggle and cringe moments. 

 The antics are comedic and fun and not to be taken too seriously.  There is a lot of amazing food mentioned throughout and each evening, as I picked up my Kindle, I knew my mouth would be watering.  The mere mention of the dry cured hams and stuffed olives were enough to send me on a scavenger hunt of my fridge! Sue Watson is full of lighthearted imagination and feel good fun and for anyone who just wants a good old giggle, especially now the summer has arrived, this is the perfect read.  Lots of girly fun, re-invention, lust and food.  What more could a girl ask for?  Well done, Sue. It brought many a smile to my face!

Love, Lies and Lemon Cake is published by Bookouture and is available in paperback and e-book version. At time of review, the Kindle version was on special for an amazing £1.09.

  1. Sounds like a fun read. Might be dangerous during bathing suit season, but, oh, who cares about that anyway! :)
