The Girl I Was Before: 'A Fun Feel Good Read' (Lily McDermott Series Book 1) by Izzy Bayliss
When Lily McDermott walks in to find Marc, her husband of just three months in bed with actress Nadia, 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 and pick herself up again with the help of her best friend Frankie and 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 and when handsome stranger Sam comes to her rescue, Lily isn't quite ready to turn her back on her marriage.
Can Lily risk opening her heart again or is she destined to allow Marc to shadow her life forever?
I have never read Izzy Bayliss books before, but somehow I felt like I was opening up a warm and comforting novel. Izzy gives the characters a kind of homely feel but with a bit of a disguise with the storyline.
Can't wait to read her next book and see what happens with Lily, Sam and Marc (the ex husband).
