Faye thinks she has to let Dan go. She doesn't believe there's a way they can be together and it breaks her heart to say goodbye. He's the love of her life, but her daughter and granddaughter will always come first. Has she made the right choice by staying while Dan is leaving and would like nothing better than becoming husband an wife?
Love, Lies and Wedding Cake is a wonderful romantic story about second chances, true love, being yourself and delicious food. Faye is a sweet woman whose sense of loyalty will always win. She doesn't have a selfish bone in her body and this leads to heartbreak and plenty of regrets. I couldn't wait to find out if she'd be able to fix things with Dan, because they clearly belong together. I really enjoyed reading about this amazing couple again and couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out if they'd get their happily ever after.
Sue Watson has a great sense of humor. Her stories always make me laugh. She writes about shame, embarrassment, bloopers and misunderstandings in a fabulous funny way. I like her heartwarming tone of voice and am always pleasantly surprised by the direction she chooses for her stories. Love, Lies and Wedding Cake is a fantastic sunny story that has the exact right feelgood factor. I really enjoyed reading this delightful book.
Book #2: Love, Lies, and Lemon Cake Series
My Rating: 4½/5 stars
Faye is living life to its fullest! She has a hot, considerate, kind, culinary god of a boyfriend, she’s on her way to completing her college degree, and her daughter and granddaughter are a delightful part of her life. What’s more, when the mood strikes, she and the aforementioned boyfriend hop a flight to some fantastic destination and soak up all of one another they can before returning to their “real” lives. Yeah, Faye is living life to its fullest . . . .
Dan, otherwise known as the hot, considerate, culinary god boyfriend loves Faye beyond all doubt and reason, but he is not living most of his life to its fullest. He loves Faye, he loves their weeks and weekends away, and he loves her family, but England isn’t home nor is it where he wants to spend the rest of his days. Dan doesn’t want to leave Faye, but he does want to go home to Australia, see his ailing brother through his final days, and open the café he’s always dreamed of owning. The only thing missing from his grand life plan is Faye who adamantly insists she can’t leave her daughter and granddaughter.
Though Faye is certain her decision to stay with her daughter and granddaughter was the right choice, she is terribly saddened by Dan’s absence. She goes about her days and nights, working diligently toward her degree, and caring for her granddaughter, but there is absolutely something missing in her life, and that is Dan. Trouble is, unless something dramatically and drastically changes, Faye just can’t see how she and Dan can ever be together again. Long distance is hard enough, but long distance across the world and across hemispheres, impossible. Lucky for Faye, something dramatically and drastically changes.
In the more than year since leaving Faye behind in England, Dan has moved forward with his life, but never beyond Faye. Sure, there’s been a fling or two, but nothing and no one can ever replace Faye in Dan’s heart. Lucky for Dan, things in Faye’s life have dramatically and drastically changed which is how he has found himself at the airport waiting for her arrival. Trouble is, things in Dan’s life have also dramatically and drastically changed and if he and Faye are going to make it as a couple, he’s got some serious explaining to do and she’s got some super-serious thinking to do!
The Bottom Line: I had no idea this was the second book in a series, and while normally that revelation would make me hella crazy, it really didn’t here as I found this read, all on its own to be supremely satisfying. In fact, I blazed through Dan and Faye’s story in a single sitting and regret nothing! I just devoured this well-written, emotional, often funny read. There is so much here for readers to enjoy including a solid couple/romance you can’t help but root for, a tiny little dynamo with a potty mouth, a crazy salon owner, and food descriptions that will make even the pickiest eater’s mouth water. In all, I couldn’t care less what happened in the first book in this series and don’t feel like I was missing anything by starting (albeit inadvertently) with this book!
It can’t be easy trying to accommodate the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, while trying to keep yourself happy, too. While Faye has been down that road, the one where she puts everyone else’s needs before her own, it’s not something Dan has ever had to worry about before. And while he feels the need to start an entirely new and different life thousands of miles away, it’s hard for Faye to even fathom a life unlike the one she’s used to. Not while there are so many who are dependent on her.
I like that Sue Watson hasn’t pulled any punches when it comes to matters of the heart and what realistically could happen between two people who are pulled in different directions. A lot of the obstacles and hurdles that they both have to deal with and jump over, it’s the stuff that happens in real life. The way they respond felt real. You can really see their personalities come out when dealing with adversity, and it’s not always the best or the prettiest, but it makes it honest, and I appreciate honesty.
A friend once told me, the right thing is usually the hardest thing to do. This Watson novel, and all of the others I’ve read fill me with assertion and strength. She has this wonderful ability of creating strong characters who ultimately find the courage to do what they need to do, the right thing that is right for them, something Faye and Dan discover on the journey through their relationship.
