    Wasn't perfect, but it had its moments

    Hmmm, I have complicated feelings about this book. To be honest, I almost gave up a quarter of the way through. Personally, I felt that Faye, the main character, was bitter, immature, narcissistic, and incredibly selfish in the beginning. Additionally, I strongly disliked Faye’s granddaughter, Rosie, who was overly precocious and behaved in a way that no toddler would. These two characters made the first part of the story a touch stressful and unpleasant to read. Perhaps the fact that I hadn’t read the first instalment of this series contributed to my initial lack of connection with the characters. Nevertheless, after pushing through, the narrative did pick up halfway through, and I found myself starting to enjoy the idyllic Australian setting as well as the relationship between Faye and Dan. I struggled to rate this novel; if you'd asked me at the start, I would’ve given this book a one-star review. However, now that I've finished this book, I believe that I'd give the book three stars; it wasn't perfect, but there were still key moments where I found myself smiling. Maybe, I will now go back and read “Love, Lies and Lemon Cake” to see how Dan and Faye's story all began.

    Lovely story

    This book is the second one in a series, but don't let this hold you back. It is perfectly readable without having read the first one and it will only give you more reason to devour the other book as well. It a laughing out loud story, but not a foolish one because the author has managed to put a lot of depth in it as well. Of course when you are young, you see things differently and you don't think everything through as well as you shoud. And then life happens and you try to do the right thing. Although this does not always mean that it will make you happy. The story shows that putting yourself first sometimes is not selfish, but is essential. You can ignore your own dreams and wishes, but where does that leave you in the end? Faye is an example of how it is possible to turn your life around and find your happy ever after. Thank you, Sue Watson, Bookouture and Netgalley for giving me the chance to review this awesome story. It makes me even feel more inclined to visit Australia.
