Book Review | Love, Lies And Wedding Cake By Sue Watson

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?

As far as first reads from an author go, this is definitely one I won't forget in a hurry.

Love, Lies And Wedding Cake is a light hearted and incredibly Bridget Jones kind of funny read. Ideally read with a nice big slab of cake, the story of Faye's predicament is hilarious, heartbreaking, ingenius and completely addictive.

So, at the beginning of the book I was ready to right hook one of the characters ( won't say who - no spoilers here! ) and tell them where to go, but as the story progressed I got over it and gave them a second chance. As if the opening few chapters weren't enough for giggles, the sniggers kept on coming as it all seemed to happen to poor Faye. 

Having made a similar decision to Faye in my time, I felt naturally drawn to her and kept egging her on to keep doing what she was doing. Mine turned out well so I really wanted this lovely character to get her happy ending. Did she get it? You'll have to read it and find out! 

Love, Lies And Wedding Cake is a wonderful love story which battles the odds and is mortifyingly funny. I'm so happy I had the chance to read this book, I'm only sad that it ended.
