I startle awake in the back seat of the car, the jetlag already taking its toll less than two hours after landing in London. โ€˜Sorry โ€“ I must have fallen asleep.โ€™

My eyes crawl up the buildingโ€™s faรงade, which is pale grey limestone adorned with ornate balusters, corbels and carved stone wreaths.

Love is on the menu. With a side order of lies.
When Laura Parker first crosses forks with Adam Bayley, she’s only after one thing: his custard doughnut. But when she takes a closer look she sees a talented, handsome man who outshines the string of jokers she’s been dating.

After a whirlwind courtship, Brittany Beresford married her Prince Charming and looked forward to living happily ever after. Five years later, sheโ€™s been reduced to a not-quite-desperate housewife, with a husband who spends more time flossing his teeth than holding meaningful conversations with her. She braves his disapproval and turns working mother and, other than feeling far more drawn to a handsome baker she works with than him, things seem to be looking up.
ย 
But then she discovers that his โ€œhobbiesโ€ include something even worse than golf โ€“ and he expects her to put up and shut up. Fairy tale illusions shattered, but still believing marriage is for life and wanting the best for her son, Brittany has a choice to make: should she follow her heart, or her conscience?
ย 
But I Said Forever is the second book in the Parker Sisters series (first book The Dr Pepper Prophecies), but can be read as a standalone.
