Chapter One Extract - Love, Lies and Lemon Cake by Sue Watson

Hi all

Last week I reviewed the fabulous Love, Lies and Lemon Cake by Sue Watson. At the time I was raving about it and I am very pleased to bring you the first chapter of the book. Have a read and if you like what you see then you can click here to buy a copy from Amazon (even better its only £1.59 at the time of writing this). If you want to read my review then click here.

I hope you enjoy reading chapter one from Love, Lies and Lemon Cake which is out now.


Love, Lies and Lemon Cake is a laugh-out-loud, bittersweet comedy about taking your life back before it’s too late.

Faye Dobson has lost her sparkle. Living on film star fantasies and vague memories of a marriage that once was, she can’t help feeling that life is passing her by. She dreams of being whisked to Paris for dinner, making three wishes at the Trevi fountain and having sex under the stars. But the wrinkles are multiplying, her husband’s passion is for plumbing, and the nearest she’ll get to Rome is a take-away pizza.

So when Faye meets Dan the gorgeous Australian surfer guy working in the local deli she can’t help but wonder what it would be like to see the world. He is blonde, tanned, ten years younger and bakes the most amazing lemon cake. Unlike her husband Dan actually listens to Faye, his smile makes her feel fizzy inside, and when he smiles... Oh. My. God.

But is Faye being silly? What would Dan see in someone like her? Even if he did have feelings for her, could she give up everything to be with him?
