'Sue’s writing is witty and heartfelt in just the right amounts.' One More Page
‘Sue has an absolutely amazing way of making you feel the emotions of her characters, and making you step into their shoes.’ Kim the Bookworm
'The book is a magnificent read about never letting go of your dreams, and never being too old to follow them. It has humor in all the right places and the characters all have their individual quirks to keep the reader interested. I was hooked from page 1 of the book and found myself whizzing through the pages to find out what would happen between Faye and Dan and whether she would get to that New York rooftop.

A great change from my usual Crime fiction books.
But by god I enjoyed this. It was just a real good, fun, laugh out loud book.
Great Characters, that you instantly like. Maybe there is a bit of all of us in Faye. (well those of us that are 40+)
I found myself going off on this Journey with Faye, and all the time wanting a happy ever after. I love the way to book flows and end's. not your typical happy ever after but 2 people finding a way for a great relationship to work with what is best for them.
There comes a time in your life when you have to start to do things for yourself. And the time has come for Faye. She embraces her life and the new Faye emerges a better and happier person.
So get yourself a large drink, a large slice of Lemon cake sit back and read and enjoy.
I must say a big thanks to my fellow blogger friend Kat, who's review of this book made me want to read it. I'm so glad i did.
I think once pay day arrives I will be buying more books by this author.
Product Description‘Laugh-out-loud funny, this book is exceptionally good.’ Chick Lit Club
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?
Working dogs have always fascinated me. I think its amazing how they train and then are able to do such a fantastic Job. So I was looking forward to reading this book as not only does it have the Detective we also have his faithful K9 friend along side him.
This is the first book I have read from this author, and I really did enjoy it.
Corruption in the police force. Drug dealers, kidnappers, bombers. This book has it all. And its down to Mike Winters and his trusted friend Falcon the dog, to catch these criminals.
There seem to be very few people who Mike trusts in his job, and as the story progresses you can see why. He's probably right to only have a handful of people he can trust. But luckily for him those he can trust are right there with him when needed.
I really did enjoy this book, and once I started it I really couldn't put it down. Looking forward to reading more from this author.
I received a review copy of this book, and away from the story it took me a while to get my head around a few things, there seemed to be no space between some of the paragraphs and a lot of the words had no spaces between them, so it took me a little longer to read as I had to keep getting me head around what was being said. That apart, the story was great. And i'm sure this has been put right for the Kindle edition.
In the second book of the action-packed K9 Blue series, Dog Squad Officer Mike Winters and his best mate Falcon are off the leash and ready for their wildest chase yet.
Crime-fighting police hero and part-time hell-raiser Mike Winters loves a good challenge. He and his loyal dog Falcon are an unstoppable duo when it comes to tracking down criminals and bringing them to justice, sometimes in very creative ways. But now there's one crook on their radar who keeps managing to stay a step ahead. When kidnappings and drug busts escalate to an international scale, it's clear this is no ordinary enemy.
Meanwhile as an ever expanding web of corruption clings to every corridor of the police department, Mike must think quick and act quicker to make sure he's not caught up in the mayhem.

Remember me this way
I was eager to give this book a try, i had heard a few friends and fellow bloggers talking about it. And thought it sounded quite good.
The book shifts between the past which seems to relate to the husband Zach telling his story, and the present, which is where Lizzie grieves the husband she lost a year ago in a car accident.
Lizzie was about to split up from Husband Zach before his accident which leads to his death and is grateful he never got to read the letter that she wrote and posted to him before he died.
It seems that Zach was somewhat a controlling, husband. and now a year on from the fatal accident she is only just coming to terms with things, that has allowed her to visit the spot on where the accident happened. And his Cornish home which is where she had sent him the letter.
But as Lizzie is grieving and trying to come to terms with things, she also now suspects that he may still be alive. Could Zach actually have faked his own death, or is grief playing a very difficult game with Lizzie's mind.
Can Lizzie overcome grief and move on or is there something else that is going to stop her getting over the death.
This books keeps you thinking and guessing all the way through. And there are a number of twists and turns throughout the book. It does make you think to how you would manage in certain situations, what you would do if you found yourself in the same position as Lizzie.
It's a very well written book, and will look forward to reading more from this author.
Remember Me This Way
by Sabine Durrant
The new, brilliantly tense psychological thriller by Sabine Durrant, author of the hugely praised UNDER YOUR SKIN.
Everyone keeps telling me I have to move on. And so here I am, walking down the road where he died, trying to remember him the right way.
A year after her husband Zach's death, Lizzie goes to lay flowers where his fatal accident took place.
As she makes her way along the motorway, she thinks about their life together. She wonders whether she has changed since Zach died. She wonders if she will ever feel whole again.
At last she reaches the spot. And there, tied to a tree, is a bunch of lilies. The flowers are addressed to her husband. Someone has been there before her.
Lizzie loved Zach. She really did.
But she's starting to realise she didn't really know him.
Or what he was capable of . .

Musings of a 20-something mom and the perils of being a mommy blogger.
The beginning of this book, i just found it brilliantly funny. I normally read mainly crime fiction but fancied a bit of a change, and it certainly was different.
No nonsense and told as it is. a blogging mummy - well it just seems the norm nowadays if you have something to say then blog about it.
from the start I loved the straight forward "say it as it is" talk in this book, The humor was right up my street. I found myself stopping to re read pars of this to anyone who was a bout and would listen. I laughed out load and on more than one occasion thought oh i like that saying, i'll remember that one - then i'd find another lol.
As the book went on I found it a little repetitive in parts, but for something different to read it was an enjoyable easy read.
One of the largest trends among Moms today is to jump on the internet and immediately regurgitate all the magical, wonderful things their child has done in the past two hours to the first unsuspecting victim. Moms are everywhere; they've even taken over Blogging. Hundreds of blogs about how Fluffy got his first tooth, or Muffy said a new word. It's enough to make people want to vomit sugar.
I've been told that i'm not your typical mom, and my blog is not your typical blog; I've even been called the "Eminem of Mommy Blogging”, honest, blunt, and usually vulgar. This book is my experiences and stories as I ventured through the Mommy Blogging world, trying to make light of some disgusting situations, and it wasn't always pretty. I had to learn the hard way that blatant honesty may not always be the best policy... not if you want to keep your kids.
"Musings of a 20-something Mom" is a lesson on how NOT to blog, unless you want to piss off your friends, family, and get a pack of crazies chasing after you; and a reminder that when it comes to parenting, there's always going to be someone out there saying "you're doing it wrong!
