As the title says love lies and lemon pie, expect great friendship, romances, lots of drama and mouth watering recipes.
I picked this up randomly at Dymocks with no clue about the book a part from the title and cover screaming foodie YA, this major foodie (the prove is on the instagram on the side bar *hint *nudge *wink) had to get it!
Set in the UK, each chapter starts out with a recipe of the food they are making and trough the story we follow Lolita and her friends as they work out baking skills for a baking competition and a chance to win an internship in Paris at a French bakery.
I enjoyed reading about Lottie. Caring and sweet, she is also intelligent and passionate with doing what she loves. Even so she is not a perfect person and have some flaws. Insecure with her mum's hording, she keeps it a secret and try's to hide it from her friends and teachers.
I adore her relationship with Mac through the book! I also love her courage of dating Mac even though all her teachers disapprove of their relationship as they don't want a 'good girl' fail in life cause she was dating a 'bad boy' situation in their hands and enjoy watching proving to them that she can 'change' Max. Also I love how as their relationship progresses,
On the outside, Mac looks like the typical 'Mysterious Bad Boy' who is always into trouble but once you get to know about him and his secrets and issues he's just a misunderstood guy. He is one of those complex characters as the book progresses we see many layers of him unfold.
Apart from Lottie And Mac I really enjoy the character Jasper and Ella and I really want a book bout those two.
Apparently there is a sequel coming out in February called 'Secrets, Schemes and Sewing Machines' based off Much Ado About Nothing following thecharacter Grace. I was not a fan of Grace in this book and I HATE SEWING but I'll still pick it up as the romance here one of those love-hate relationship (aka my favorite kind of romance).
