An absolutely hilarious, laugh-‘til-you-cry, romantic comedy about how life never quite goes to plan…
Faye is in crisis. You wouldn’t know it, because of the big fat smile on her face, but inside, she’s one step away from nuclear meltdown. And she shouldn’t be. Dan is the man of her dreams. And he’s just asked her to marry him.
But Faye’s been down the marriage road before and it ended up with her having Ryan Gosling fantasies while her ex-husband obsessed about the plumbing. Faye and Dan, on the other hand, have been living their lives to the fullest, travelling around the world, having sex under the stars… They haven’t ever argued about unrolling socks before putting them in the laundry.
Besides, even if she wanted to say yes, how could she move to the other side of the world? Because marrying Dan would mean living in Australia. Beautiful, warm and a gazillion miles from Faye’s daughter, Emma, a single mum with her own crazy little girl who both need Faye every single day. Leaving them – even for someone who makes her as happy as Dan – simply isn’t an option.
Dan is offering Faye everything she ever wanted. So why does she feel like she’s about to lose it all?
The most screamingly-funny romantic comedy of the summer – about secrets, second chances and following your heart. Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Jill Mansell and Milly Johnson.
I am a huge fan of this authors books. Love, Lies and Lemon Cake being my absolute favourite. Have you ever loved a book so much though and wish the author would write another one featuring the same characters? Well Sue Watson has answered my prayers!
To be fair this book does read well as a stand alone but I beg you to read the first one as it is fabulous and you really don’t want to miss the beginning of Faye and Dan’s journey.
It was sooooo good to catch back up with Faye and Dan again. Sadly not everything is as rosy as we left it last time. Some big decisions need to be made and I was torn in two as to what should happen. The author seriously messed with my head as I really didn’t know which way Faye was going to turn and I couldn’t turn those pages fast enough to see how things were going to turn out for the pair.
This author always manages to write a story which soaks you up body and soul. As soon as I pick one of her books up I know I won’t be putting it back down until I finish it. I always get so invested in the story line that by the end I am an absolute emotional wreck and this time was no different. Don’t get me wrong I was grinning like a cheshire cat whilst sobbing my heart out as I was so happy but sad as I had come to the end.
Australia is somewhere now that I want to go to even more than ever before. The sights and life there sounded so idyllic and I wanted to hop on board the next plane and find a Dan of my own. Just don’t tell my husband ;).
Love, Lies and Wedding Cake is the perfect follow on from what was an already fabulous book. This one is just as fabulous and I now have two firm favourites. It is a book that picks you right up and smothers you with the most amazing emotions. It is the perfect read to feed your mind and soul and will remind you that happiness indeed starts with you!
My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
