Summary

Would you give your first love a second chance?
 

Justine Thomas and Maddie Kind met at university and were the couple most likely. Everybody said so. That is, until Maddie left without saying goodbye.

Ten years later the pair are reunited at a friend’s funeral, and now Justine can’t shake Maddie from her life. But why is she back? Why did she disappear? And more importantly, is she interested in the whole cake, or just one last slice of Justine? 

Strap in for a novel that deals with life’s big topics: Love, death, and cake. Clare Lydon is the queen of British romantic comedy, and this stellar lesbian romance is guaranteed to give you all the feels. 

Quite simply, it's unputdownable.

Romcom with the dark balanced with the light

Great, gripping story, with absolutely top narration! Loved every minute of this occasionally serious romcom.

Not great & not funny.

Story is not great and full of very lame jokes. The plot is compromised by very lazy research and clichés which mean it barely hangs together. The writing is very poor with all the usual Lydon repetition, padding and dreadful grammatical mistakes, which nobody who calls themselves a writer should make. For a 'successful' writer Lydon is one of the laziest I have come across; one gets the feeling she is churning out books for the money, regardless of the quality. This makes her work very irritating and I will not be buying any more of her books/audioboks.

The narrator confuses the story by reading the main characters with middle class English accents which do not reflect things the characters think and say. And, for goodness sake, if you are producing a story set in the South West of England then use an actress who can speak with the local accent! As for Vincent's Irish accent - well, I don't dare go there...

Funny and emotional

I enjoyed it a great deal, both the story and the narration. It's about regrets, second chances, grief, love, family and friends.

Narration detracted.Emotional drama got tedious.

Narrator was robotic and tempo too fast. The minutia of every overwrought emotion was tedious. It was an effort to finish. I know this author can be funny and good.

A great British book

With places I recognize and a great British accent, a well written story, you need very little to have a great time.
Loved this book
