Love, Lies and Lemon Pies, the debut YA novel from Katy Cannon, is the perfect summer read for fans of Sarah Dessen and Louise Rennison. With a Bake Club recipe at the start of each chapter, this book perfectly captures the current appetite for all things baking! Sixteen-year-old Lottie is on a mission to protect her biggest secret, and it'll take every lie and every baking trick she can muster. Since her dad died, life hasn't been the same for Lottie. When the school suggests she joins Bake Club to get her back on track, Lottie reluctantly agrees. The alternative - the school paying her mum a home visit - is not an option. But Lottie's uncertainty about Bake Club melts away as she rekindles her love of baking and gets caught up with Mac, school rebel and another unwilling Bake Club member. As the end-of-year Bake Off approaches, the tension rises. Can Lottie keep up the facade of her perfect life? And can her bubbling romance with Mac survive the pressure? "A delightful, delicious and feather-light YA romance that still manages to deal beautifully with some deep issues." Robin Stevens, author of Murder Most Unladylikeshow more

Our customer reviews In Short - Brilliant and very strong characters. - Unique and heart warming story. - Fun baking side to the story. In Long Loves, Lies and Lemon Pies has such a bright and fun cover which is complimented by a fun blurb which gives an insight into Lottie's world. A world which is full of difficulties. I just had to see how Lottie navigated these challenges in her life. This book has such brilliant characters, especially Lottie, the main character, and Mac. I really wanted to find more out about them from within a few pages. Together they are a very entertaining pair who I couldn't get enough of. The storyline is a heartwarming one and one which i didn't want to put down, every time I had to put it down I would be excited about picking it up again. I feel like I went on a personal journey with Lottie as she faced these challenges and overcome so many problems in her life. The baking side of the book brings a very fun side to the story and was really unique and different. It also made me more interested in baking, I need a baking partner like Mac! Final Thoughts Loves, Lies and Lemon pies is such a fun and thoroughly entertaining book which was written in a brilliant more
