Love, Lies and Wedding Cake by Sue Watson





What They Say.....Since Faye met her gorgeous Aussie boyfriend Dan, they’ve travelled all over the world to meet in amazing, crazy locations. They’ve eaten gateaux in a chateau, chocolate torte in a moonlit port, and even had st├Âllen kisses in a sparkling winter market. Neither of them wanted to settle down… until now.

When Dan asks Faye to marry him and to move to Australia it throws a real spanner in the works. Faye’s daughter Emma needs her here, so moving to the other side of the world – even for a hunk like Dan – simply isn’t an option. Is it?

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. Is that what she has to look forward to? Is she ready to end her adventure? And even if she is, how can she be sure Dan is the right man for her? Because he's keeping a secret. One that could destroy everything. 

SOME SPOILERS AHEAD -BUT NOT MANY!

What I Say.....I had just come off of a downer of a book, so Love, Lies and Wedding Cake was the perfect  antidote.  It was a light easy read, and I breezed through it.

Faye is a hairdresser, a mother who has sacrificed her independence to help raise her granddaughter.  But Faye also has a hot Australian boyfriend that she gets to enjoy around her daughter's daycare needs.

When Dan proposes and asks Faye to move back to Australia, she puts her desires aside and says no, she needs to be here for her daughter and granddaughter.  Ugh.  Faye puts on a stiff upper lip and gets on with her life without Dan.

But a year later, her daughter decides to get married and move herself and her daughter to Scotland.  So now Faye wants to reconcile with Dan, but he's not answering her calls or texts.  But she decides to go to Australia for the chance to talk to him and see if their love can be rekindled.

But when she gets there she finds more complications than she is sure she wants at this stage of life.  Will it be worth it to be with Dan?  A great book about how amazing the second chapter of life can be!
