Life’s not always a piece of cake…
Meet Lucy, master wedding cake baker, idealistic school canteen crusader, and someone whose broken heart just won’t seem to mend…
Lucy is quietly confident that she has made the right choices in life. Surrounded by friends and family in a small town by the sea, Lucy can easily suppress the feeling that something is missing from her life.
But when a blast from the past arrives in the form of her estranged husband, international celebrity chef Oliver Murray, Lucy’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble beneath her like overbaked meringue.
Is Oliver’s return all business or is it motivated by something more?
This story was cute, so cute. I had wondered if it would go down a different route then it did and I loved that it stayed on the path it was meant to.
Lucy is our main lady, headstrong and has been jilted by her husband. Her hot husband who also happens to be now famous! Famous for being a chef, think Gordon Ramsay famous. He left and she didn’t follow, but now he is back.
This is my first book by Belinda and I loved this story that she told. A woman who won’t take any nonsense but also one who knows when she is wrong and I will admit I quite liked her even when she was losing her mind. Her estranged husband Oliver, he may be beautiful but I kept too-ing and fro-ing with how I felt about him. Did I like him? Was he good enough? Alas, that wasn’t my decision to make! This however made the story feel realistic, it was not a case of oh I love him lets be in love forever or oh I hate him let me run away with someone else. It was about two people wondering if they were able to still make things work despite what had occurred.
Once I sat down and started to read to this, I found it such an easy read to get into and lose myself in. I found Belinda’s writing so enticing, she writes as if she was having a conversation and I found that the book just flowed. As I said it was a cute read and a fun read and I know I will be back again to read another book by Belinda. I just found out this was Belinda’s debut, so if this is the start you just know it will get better and better!
Until next time xxx
