Love, Lies and Lemon Cake is a hilarious, 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?
Faye Dobson, a forty something years old, was struggling with her marriage. She and her husband live in the same house, but they haven’t had a conversation for a long time. When her marriage comes to an end, Faye decided to live the life she always wanted. She met Dan, a handsome Australian surfer at the local deli. He’s funny, hot, and he listened when she talks. Faye likes him, and Dan seemed to like her too. But he’s way younger than her.

The book was targeted to the more mature age, but I found that this book was an easy read. I love the setting, and the characters. I enjoyed Faye’s journey to change her life to be what she always wanted and how she found her confidence back. The romance between Faye and Dan was very fun. Faye made me laugh when she just can’t stop talking whenever she was nervous around Dan. There were a few twists at the end, which I totally did not expect, but it made the story more enjoyable and romantic. I would recommend this book.

I received an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
