Summary

When Lily McDermott walks in to find her husband of just three months in bed with a famous actress, life as she knows it is over. Lily thinks things can't get any worse when she sees photos of her husband and his new lover splashed across the glossy magazine pages, but when she loses her job, too, she is at her lowest ebb and turns to baking to soothe her soul. 

Wounded and broken, she has to try to pick herself up again with the help of her best friend, Frankie. With her encouragement, Lily decides to turn her hobby into a business and sets up Baked with Love. However, whatever Lily does, it seems disaster soon ensues....

When a handsome stranger comes to her rescue, Lily isn't quite ready to turn her back on her marriage. Can she risk opening her heart again, or is she destined to allow Marc to overshadow her life forever?

Frustrating

I really struggled with the characters in this book, Lilly and her sister. I found their relationship really frustrating. The storyline was weak and I did think of giving up less than half way through, however, decided to stick with it in the hope that something exciting was going to happen and there would be an exciting twist to the boring tale. Alas, there wasn't, it was just an incredibly frustrating and boring love story that never got off the ground for me.
