Happy start to a lovely long weekend! Excited to be part of the blog blitz for this delightful book! Thank you so much to Kim for the invitation and to sue Watson for her amazing words that left me smiling and hungry for cake!🎂💕🎂
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’ve never 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.
5 Delicious and Delightful Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Faye is being added to my book BFF list, and she might be the only member that was born in the same decade as me…. Sue Watson, where have you been all my life? This I am sad to say was my first book by this author, but I will from now on pick up every book that she writes! This book just had the perfect blend of romance, humor, friendship, family, and food…. I was seriously up all night reading this book, laughing so hard I was crying at two in the morning…. just needing to know how this book ended…. and then sad when it did…. because I couldn’t spend any more time with these fabulous characters….
I found Faye so relatable and I could really put myself in her position throughout this book… as a mother, as a single woman in her 40s, and as somebody who enjoys cake…. because of this I was so frustrated with other characters throughout the book, first it was Dan… I was so frustrated that he wanted her to move across the world to be with him…. there is NO way I would move states much less countries and leave my kids, especially for a man… then I got upset with Emma… how dare she not take her mother’s feelings into consideration, after all she’s done for her…. so as you can tell I projected some of my own feelings onto these characters…. and just like Faye by the end of the book my opinions might have changed on some of these points….
Faye was surrounded by such a wonderful group of people… Dan, her boyfriend who yes did frustrate me… but he really was a good guy… Emma her daughter, who did truly love her mother…. Mandy the owner of the beauty salon where Faye worked, she really did add some humor and charm to the story…. and last but absolutely not least Rosie Faye’s granddaughter…. Rosie would light up anybody’s life, every time she was in the book she put a smile on my face… couldn’t wait to hear the words that came out of her mouth after she put her hand on her hip…
Absolutely recommend when you are in the mood for a romance that is filled with love, laughter, and cake🎂
