Amazon UK - The Secret Life of Lucy Lovecake
Daisy Delaney's life is pancake-flat. A talented baker and passionate lingerie specialist, she has wound up with no one to bake for and a career that hasn't proved successful. But when she starts a delicious relationship with famous French author-chef, Michel Amiel, everything begins to look a bit more exciting.
That is until Michel's bestselling cookbook is knocked off the top spot by newcomer 'Lucy Lovecake'. His outdated recipes slide down the charts, while the popularity of Lucy Lovecake's new dating cookbook is rising like the perfect sponge.
As Daisy teeters on the brink of love, how can she ever tell Michel that she is the mysterious Lucy Lovecake? Could he ever forgive her for finishing off his career? And more importantly, does Daisy even want to be with a difficult, egotistical, down-on-his-luck Frenchman just as her career is beginning to take off? Especially when she has some other very interesting offers...
THE SECRET LIFE OF LUCY LOVECAKE by Pippa James is the perfect read for fiction fans everywhere. With scrumptious cakes, sexy lingerie, and characters that feel like your best friends, I completely fell in love with this story! Daisy Delaney has always wanted to be an author and when her first book on the history of lingerie fails to garner any interest, she begins to wonder whether her dream will ever happen. Broke and a little forlorn, it is fate that throws her in the path of antagonistic French chef Michel Amiel. As a strange friendship begins between them, inspiration hits Daisy for the perfect idea for a book, and before she knows it Lucy Lovecake and her baking/dating expertise is born. With Publishers fighting over her, it seems as if her every dream is coming true. But as Lucy Lovecake's real identity must remain a secret, Daisy finds herself lying to those who really matter to her, including Michel, but Daisy doesn't want to risk her book or her future for anyone. With drunken outbursts, house arrests, saucy secrets, and plenty more, THE SECRET LIFE OF LUCY LOVECAKE by Pippa James is hilarious from beginning to end and I adore the area of Primrose Hill and its fascinating inhabitants. I cannot wait to read more from Pippa James.
