Sweet Temptation is an incredibly funny and sharply observant novel, from bestselling author Lucy Diamond.
Maddie's getting it from all sides. Her bitchy new boss at the radio station humiliates her live on air about her figure, her glamour-puss mum keeps dropping not-so-subtle hints that Maddie should lose weight and her kids are embarrassed to be seen with her after the disastrous Mums' race at their school sports day. Something's got to change . . .
Maddie joins the local weight-watching group expecting more humiliation but instead finds two unlikely allies –bitter divorcee Lauren who, despite running a dating agency, has signed off romance for ever and shy Jess, the beautician, who's desperate to fit into a size ten wedding dress for her Big Day.
A must have for any season
This book is a must have. Perfect for any time, winter warmer or a beach holiday read. Had me smiling and crying like most.
It did take me a few chapters to get into one of the characters, which probably prevented a five star review.
If you like Paige toon and Sophie kinsella then this is a similar writing style that you'll love.
A must read
I loved reading this book, another fantastic read by Lucy diamond !!!
Open to temptation and buy it
I bought this book after reading "Summer with my sister" an off chance that I would get back into reading novels again. Having loved summer with my sister I began reading a few other books...none of which I found as addictive as summer with my sister...
In the end I ditched the other books and bought 'Sweet Temptation' one night when I was having trouble sleeping!
I really enjoyed this book! Some parts are very touching (tearjerker at one point) but other parts made me crease up with laughter particularly as the book went on...
I'm now about to purchase another one of Lucy Diamonds books :-)
